May my words fall silent If my tongue wants to lie. May my pride be exposed If I become haughty in life. May my jealousy be subdued If I envy what isn’t mine. May my anger be dissolved If I seek revenge for a wrong. May my greed be squandered If I desire selfish pleasures. […]

And Yet, I Love

Insecure… as a little girl. I love mommy and daddy, I silently cry As I shake and tremble throughout the night Always praying they will hold me tight. Naked images all around Sex in my home is something foul It makes a grown man big and proud To use his women and throw them around. […]

If I am the world’s… I praise and glorify God With a cursed, filthy tongue. I play church on Sunday morning Hung over from the night before. If I am the world’s… I care not about morality But teach strong values publicly. I speak of family virtues As I beat my spouse and children.
