The Test

Posted in Room By Myself, Word Is Bond with tags , , , , , , on April 20, 2010 by Ron
You told me that I am the Captain of My Faith,
The Master of My Soul
And yet…
I feel there are outside forces that are out of my control

Ever since I’ve done wrong
I swear I’ve tried my best to do right,
but time and time again
There are those forces…
bringing me plight

And I’ve been constantly reassured
Been constantly told that everything will work itself out
Been told that I’m too good for things to not go right
…in the end

And I’ve done my best to believe.
Honest to God I have.
I’ve been working on these steps for so long
And yet…
I’m still that same mouse
Looking for that damn cheese….

Let me stop myself
because I actually did find that cheese
But then those forces stepped in
Needless to say,
I had been deceived.
Now I’m like the boy at his fathers funeral
Trying my best not grieve
Acting strong for everyone else
I’m simply pulling on my sleeve
Trying to muster up all my might
For the fight will soon begin
The forces have found its way
To attend me deep within

Just like light
Our minds sometimes bend
Showing us a picture that’s really just pretend
It’s all just a test
Will you transcend or descend?
The answer lies with the person within….


A Little Reassurance?

Posted in Room By Myself with tags , , , , , on February 10, 2010 by Ron

They say seeing is BELIEVING
And I’ve heard if you BELIEVE in something;
you can’t help but see it

But HOW am I suppose TO BELIEVE IN something that at this point seems IMPOSSIBLE?

And what if I don’t know HOW TO BELIEVE?
Do I need religion? Some sort of faith?
Tell me…what is it I must do?

I’ve heard time and time again, words such as
“In due time, just stay true”

But what about RIGHT NOW!?!?

Its like I’m lost in crossroads…a maze
And there is no scent or sign of even a hint of cheese
But you always tell me “Don’t worry, keep BELIEVING and stay focused on it”

So is BELIEF just hearing some sort of constant reassurance?
Such as “Everything will be ok”
If so, tell it to me again…please…
