"Dear Wounded" Song From 2010

Today I'd like to share a song I wrote in 2010. I was collaborating with a band named Smashcan at the time, and they were sincerely cons...

Life Is Quite a Bitch

Life is really funny sometimes. It throws you stuff that you don't expect and catches you off guard in a good way. Then, in one breathtaking second, it throws you stuff that catches you off guard in a bad way. Nothing soothes the soul when those bad life experiences hit. People's kind words all sound like bullsh*t. The "I understand" commentaries seem like false empathy. The "I'm there for you" gestures don't seem real at all, nor do they materialize when you need them to. Nothing helps, especially for a believer who is not allowed to seek vengeance or be unforgiving. All we can do is suck it up, feel our hearts being torn to shreds, and then thank our Heavenly Father in the morning for every last second of it. Pain is dealt to us often by people who don't understand us and people who hate us for our warm nature. One would think that a warm nature is something everyone would adore, but it works the opposite in this world today. Our bright lights make people want to stomp us out. Our will to do right makes people want to sabotage us in every way. Our truth makes people strive to make liars out of us. 

It's tough trying to live everyday life and stick to the Scriptures. The devil sure doesn't make it easy, but the Father always has our back. We can ride the waves of pain and still make it out with our same beautiful and loving souls. No one can ever snatch us out of his hands or turn us into evil beings if we keep our faith. 

I'm keeping my faith no matter what happens in life. I'm keeping it no matter who comes and goes or who tries to beat me down. I'm keeping it forever, and I still hope that I can be faithful and obedient enough to enter the Kingdom when it comes.
