// from the typewriter (app) //

we are

infinitely

finite.

we smother

conviction

with

complacency.

we scorn the

tolerant

with cries of

intolerance.

we live for

entertainment

while others

die for

what’s truly

worth

living for.

we think that

love is

words

and warm feelings

and giving up

your purity

when it’s really

actions

and courage

and hanging on

to purity yet

giving up

yourself.

we live in

the land of

the free

yet people

are mocked

for showing

a bit of

faith.

we live in

the home of

the brave

yet when

evil strikes

the world

we are

silent.

we long to

fill the void

in our hearts

yet when the

One who

created our

heartbeat

offers us

love

grace

belonging

we have the

audacity to

say we

don’t need

Him.

(we the people are a series of beautiful, horrible contradictions.)
