We Bend and We Break...But We Don't Give up...




Time Takes Its Toll on Us - Bebo Norman


We are having a trying week. But we don't give up. There will be joy...one day.

  4. Baptism - Claude McKay

    Into the furnace let me go alone;
    Stay you without in terror of the heat.
    I will go naked in-for thus "tis sweet"-
    Into the weird depths of the hottest zone.
    I will not quiver in the frailest bone,
    You will not note a flicker of defeat;
    My heart shall tremble not its fate to meet,
    My mouth give utterance to any moan.
    The yawning oven spits forth fiery spears;
    Red aspish tongues shout wordlessly my name.
    Desire destroys, consumes my mortal fears,
    Transforming me into a shape of flame.
    I will come out, back to your world of tears,

    A stronger soul within a finer frame.

  6. Gosh that song makes me tear up, Julie. It's beautiful. I'm commenting twice because I'm feeling some of your pain through the space that separates us and I hope that I can lift just a little of that sad load from you...
