Living or Dying?

What is the difference between living and dying?
it has nothing to do with how old you are
nor what the state of your health is
it has everything to do with your perspective
When you wake up in the morning
do you think of it has one more day you have been alive
or one day closer untill the day you die?

Yesterdaya woman in the mall
cried while she worked because
she was getting married but didn't want to.
Yesterday a woman on the news
reported a bombing in a war-torn country.
The bombs hit a wedding.

Black and White

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them. ~Dion Boucicault

"Love never fails..." 1 Corinthians 13:8

The toys left behind....

breaking dawn

breaking dawn
with thick brown hands
purple veins pulsing as
the purple clouds spill like blood from the sunrise
over strong, calloused hands.
bats seek shelter but are confused
by the dizzying decision
of returning to old habits and old homes
or seeking refuge in their savior
who slaughtered dawn
their immortal enemy.
little do they know
tomorrow the sun will rise again
and already the hands are dying.

my sweet nothing

the glow
