We're trying something new today.
Opening a door I wasn't sure if I was ready to enter.
But I went through it anyway.
I bowed my head and emptied my mind.
Not allowing any other thoughts to enter.
The air was suffused with cascading tongues,
Weaving through the air and through my mind.
I let it soak.
Let it take me away.
My body's going numb.
I'm drifting away.
I see a desert.
Something tells me I should say something,
That I should say it out loud.
But I'm scared.
And I don't know why.
My heart is pounding,
I'm so scared.
But I don't know why.
I feel him.
I feel him staring down at me.
My heart pounds even faster.
"Desert," I murmur.
Nobody heard me.
"Desert. Desert. Desert,"
Can anybody hear me?
"Desert. Desert. Desert. Desert. Desert,"
Why won't they listen to me?
"Desert, Desert, Desert, Desert, Desert, Desert, Desert," I say it louder this time.
I'm so scared.
"Desert, Desert, Desert,
He Is SaviorI've been waiting for Prince Charming to come,More Like This
Little did I know He already came,
Two-thousand years ago,
He came to save my soul,
I was waiting for my Hero to arrive,
I should'a known He's been here all the time,
Waiting for me,
To look into His eyes,
And I know it sounds so cliche,
But I gotta sing it anyway,
Jesus is everything to me,
Jesus is all that I need,
He's a father to the fatherless,
Grandfather and childhood friend,
Husband to the prostitute,
The widowed, rejected, destitute,
He's the Judge and the One who pleads your case,
The One who grants your freedom, and the One who takes your place,
He's your lover, He's your creator,
He's Prince Charming, He's your Savior,
Been trying to fill up the whole in my chest,
Yet whatever I put in this yearning can't be put to rest,
And if I look into the deepest parts of me,
I can see the place where You need to be,
Everything I actually wanted just leads back to You,
And if I'm honest with myself, I know it's the truth,
Everything I ever
Birth Control? No Thanks!Why do I detest artificial birth control so much? This is a controversial question since in society today, artificial birth control is seen as the ultimate weapon for women's rights, and is what keeps us from the "dark ages" of slaving away at home with 13 kids hanging off our arms. However, I believe birth control really isn't all it's cracked up to be. Do I really need birth control to be an independent, free woman? Is the ability to have sex without kids via hormonal chemicals really paramount to having the right to vote and the right to freedom of speech?More Like This
My answer is no. I abhor the whole industry and culture surrounding artificial birth control, and I have medical, cultural/societal, and religious reasons to think this way.
I don't care how much "safer" birth control pills are getting, or how easy-to-use and safe an IUD can be: they still work against my body's natural rhythms and thus still contain ri
