She paints your world a vibrant yellow,
She sings away your gloomy blues,
She draws your silent breath away.
Like the rainbow that comes,
After every downpour,
Reminding you of the beauty of life.

Over yonder in the Northern poles,
The silver storm rages,
And the Carol sings.
A kiss sets passions asunder,
Under the enchanted mistletoe green.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright. Until you hear them speak

A boy stood at the top of the world,
He views down upon it with a forlorn heart.
He watches with jaded and weary eyes.
Heart locked and key lost,
Closing the gates to his very soul.
He turns his back on the world,
His heart bleeds and he tears.
Tears which streaks down the mountains,
The mountains cry with him,
The winds carries his sorrows.
The stark coldness of winters,
The jilted beauty of autumm.

A boy stood upon the top of the world,
He looks up upon heavenly bodies.
Searching for a glimmer of hope,
Hope among the aloof and majestic lights.
An Angel appeared before him,
She carries with her a key,
The key which the boy hid away,
Never to be found.
She tells him,
"The key i have found again for you,
It is you and only you who can unlock it.
There is love and hope in this cruel world.
Open your heart and bare your soul.
For he cares above everyone else."
The Angel wiped his tears and left.

A boy stood upon the top of the world.
He sees the life of spring,
See how it comes after the chill of every winter,
He feels the warmth of summer and it sets his heart ablaze.
He looks up and smiles.
Thank you Father, and he soars,
For he yearns to be back among the world again.

An architect's sprawling work,
Spread across the sky upon foundations.
Foundations of dreams and fleeting fancy,
Of things that wasn't,
Of things that never may be.
It is good to dream...

Heres a post thats not a piece of my work, hey whats a blog without some entries reflecting my real life happenings right!

Just got back from church camp as with any camps, a mandatory hot shower and 8 hour sleep upon arrival from home was greatly appreciated. Then food, good food.

Camp was great overall, main reason for joining this time was because of the theme. Science and religion. Been searching for answers since i first thought about "self" and the "world".
Is self centralised or is it a result of self egoistism and sociology?

What is this innate "evil" nature of us? What pushes us to lie and cheat even when we are mere toddlers? From the point of science it is the result of genetic influence and sociology. In Christianity we are said to be born with sin. It is in us to be "evil".

I have questioned alot of pastors and members of my similar faith. None has been able to give me a proper answer, infact most of them either stand of the brink of arrogance or ignorance. Questions about the interpretation of the bible, about social morals and standards and how does Christianity conform or change it.

The main speaker for the camp was an excellent person for me to target my questions at. (Never got his name -_-) He was very well versed in current sciences and philosophies, pulled up alot of names some of which i knew, some of which were foreign to me. Had a couple of questions of his main points and attempted to take apart some of his points. Didnt get much time to speak with him but during the short time we had a few discussions on the viewpoints on both parties. I had to take the view point of the skeptic because he obviously would take the part of the religion :P . And he is the first that finally admits that Christianity is all about blind faith!!!

" Culture has no part in ensuring the survival of man, but it gives man reason to live"

In a way religion works that way too, it gives man hope, and it gives man a support, something to turn to in time of need.

A religionist and a scientist can push forth all their points till the cows come home but in the end, both parties have based a very large part of their points and facts upon "assumptions"
General and Special relativity stands on 1 ultimate. The ultimate that nothing can go faster then light. And we say that because we cant find anything faster then light due the the limitations in our technology.
If one day we find that dark is indeed faster then light(it gets out of the way of light pretty quickly), will those scientists and Einstein say "oops?" in their graves?
Even as we speak, part of Newtonian physics (the physics we study in school) is being proven wrong by scientists.(yeah kids go tell your teachers they are teaching you all the wrong stuff)

We all have a point to prove and it all ends up to whether you chose to put your faith in the assumption that there is a God or that light is faster then dark.

Ok that was alot of side tracking i did but hey that was what the camp was all about for me. I get injured as always during camps but nothing major but one thing, the food was BAAAAAAAAAD. I rarely complain about quality of food but when you serve me veg fish and rice for 3 days in a row, i will complain! I cant take fish and i ended up eating veg and rice for 5 meals.. i made sure my dinner was steak and wine tonight lol.

Ok thats about it i guess.. Got another poem up soon if nothing big happens.. Until then

It slips through the wake of humanity,
Like sand,
It slips through the fingers,
Fingers of lovers, of matyrs, of kings,
And of humanity.
It dosent wait, it dosent look back.
Like a deer set free upon the medows,
It sprints forth and is never found again.

The path of a falling star,
It streaks a burning trail across my weary heart.
Ambers buried by the ashes of time ignites,
Scorching the mind with memories once thought gone.
Echoes of recollections rings out,
Resonates across the recesses of my inner soul.
Happiness an elusive wanton for ages past,
Returns to me but will it last...

Oh btw, wanna say a few words to my terrorists buddies. You guys are nothing but a bunch of pathetic cowards. You have a damn problem with government, go after them if you are so capable. Staying at camps and playing armies aint gonna be your redemption, its gonna be your downfall. Leave the innocents alone, bombing them to bits wont make the government listen. It will only leave families broken. Please, stop. I cant help but feel sad each time i hear of a new bombing. I feel sad for the deaths of the loved ones, i shed a silent tear for you. I feel sad for the man responsible, I pity you for living in your world of illusions, that makes you think you are significant, that your job killing people makes the world a better place. When will this madness end?
(I know the chance of a terrorist reading is less then 0, but if someone manages to read it, come bomb me you sonofabitch if you have the capabilities. We do not fear you.) Pardon my language, i just had to rant..
