The Lightning Relapse Hypothesis

Updated on March 16, 2011

We the living

pretending soundness of mind

having regrets

things left behind

wonder if thingsĀ 

once lost can be refound

often miss why they happened

so are bound to repeat

except lost with more or less grace

trying to hide the face

worn by tears

care and pain

but what if happiness could be reclaimed

what if pain could be healed

what if tragedy could be repealed

suppose we see what we want to see

cry our tears because we mourn of course

but maybe what is mourned

is our choices irrevocable

not because we couldn't turn back on our course

because we regret what was left behind

yet refuse to change from one

who would do it again

for the same reasons it happened at first

perhaps happiness or should I say joy

is a state of mind

that bends us to a higher plain

requires our perfection on step at a time

not flawlessness but wholeness

at the pace of the Gods

if this be so then all we need to do is change

go to the one who wants joy at all cost

and find what was lost return

seeing the burn salved

and obtain what we truly desire

      I too enjoyed Bryan's post. I found it raehtr enlightening as was your followup. It's crazy how Christians themselves have polluted the idea of sin, making one sin greater than the other. All sins are equal and equally hurtful in God's eyes. Organized religion as I like to call it has cast such a bad light on the whole issue of homosexuality and how it should be approached. It has caused non believers and believers alike to become confused about God's way of viewing this issue.In my searching for answers to this question of homosexuality and Christianity, I've found there's a raehtr poignant void of feedback from lesbians. I wrote a post that was very similar to Bryan's just from a former lesbian perspective. My post pales in comparison to yours and to Bryan's but I hope that someone out there could find some use in it. It's amazing the thought and doctrine based answers you've put into this post and I hope I can come to a point of knowledge in my Christian walk. Keep up the good work.
