I’m Happy

I’m happy
I’ve got a blog
That many people pass by
I’ve got a friend
Who comes to see me
I’m happy
I’ve got music
I can listen to
I’ve got songs of my own
I can play
And that
tall mountain range
That I see in my sub-conscious
Isn’t so far away
Or too high to climb
I’m happy
At the way
When the darkness
Sinks into the morning
And a new day is born
At how good
I can feel inside
Like this morning
At how this good feeling
Never goes away
At how the world can
Demolish your life
And leave rubble
on top of you
But one day
The rubble is gone
And a ray of sunshine
Enters the clearing
And I feel happy

Children of the Great Patriotic War

Hettie's Reflections

Author’s Note: I posted this on my personal blog yesterday, May 9, on what we Russians and people in many other Soviet countries celebrate as Victory Day, to mark the surrender of Nazi Germany and end of World War II in Europe. In European countries, it’s celebrated a day earlier, as Victory in Europe Day. For some reason, Americans don’t mark it on either day, in spite of U.S.’ very substantial contribution to the war effort.

I wrote this post in OpenWriter, just in case my mom asked me to repost it here. Which, suffice to say, she did. I hope that, if Nadya and any of my mom’s grandkids that may come along read it, they will get something out of it, even though many people in this post aren’t related to them at all. And I hope that people who aren’t family that come across it will get…

The juggernaut that put me here

To the juggernaut that put me here
It is a windmill swats a fly
For your voice is so dim it’s not listened to
And your heart is squashed like a pea

To the juggernaut that put me here
And to all who row within its hulk
Across the sand of humanity
Upon the shore of oblivion

The juggernaut that put me here
And would not let me in
And set me between the red moon
And the blades of the hurricane wind

The juggernaut that put me here
The rampant scream-gauntlet of justice
That is not right and yet is not wrong
Until it jingles like the coins of a Judas kiss

There’s a big glitch

There’s a big glitch in the air today
Very poisonous some might say
As it drinks the blood of the Milky Way
Keeping the glitter but excreting the clay

There’s a big glitch in the earth today
Like a glass snake, that swallows its prey
As everyone looks at the LCD screen
They are eaten up, you can hear them scream

You can cry all you want

Cursed by the voice of depression
I can sit in my chair for days
Gone by
I can sit in my chair
Waiting for the train
For someone to say
Yes, you can cry all you want
Sitting in my chair alone
All day part shadow, part human
All day long on a winter’s day
As the cat comes in the cat goes out
I feed the cat the cat feeds me
I am the cat sleeping all day
On a winters day all night
On a winter’s night as the day passes by
And the night seeks me out
With the voice of depression
A unique voice, unique to me
Made of the atoms from my own history
On my well-worn seat of a sofa
A sofa from a skip
In the wreckage of a life
Wrecked by the haunted rage
From a wolf
Surrounded by the black and white TV
Hello Mr. Depression wolf
What you got for me
Another day alone
As you eat me
Molecule by molecule
Memory by memory

In the courtroom of the reptile

In the courtroom of the reptile in the darkness of the grave
A mountain rose above me and judgement was a slave

I played the bars in silent monotony
Until my chariot came – and I was free

The road I walked was hot and it melted in the sun
With the tendrils of the shaman and the tentacles of a nun

The freemasons from crypt called out “he has come”
I lay down with the jellyfish and I saw the porcupines run

Freedom comes in many shapes with wires to disconnect
Configurations attended now, you are now a reject

I saw a green horse withering yet even as it cried
“A little bit of freedom should never be denied”

Everything that comes at you, ask of it –
Is this another’s illusion or is this truly real?

 

To a Soldier

In 33 BC, Jesus was asked questions by his disciples about the future of Jerusalem and of his second coming as their King. Looking far into the future, he said that, Nation would rise against Nation, and Kingdom against Kingdom and that this was to be a sign to look for.
The times of the Gentiles is a Jewish (Judean) time of having non-Jewish people rule in Jerusalem when they would be without a king to rule over them and they would be trampled over by foreign rule for a period of time, the time of the gentiles.
This time-period lasted for over two thousand years and ends with nation rising against nation. Without going into detail, it’s not hard to see that 2,000 years after Jesus died there was such an event – the 1st world war. The First World War involved great armies from many countries, a new wave of invention in military equipment and great loss of life. The soldiers in the war perhaps didn’t know about this prophecy, and that they were taking part in the “beginning of the end of the system of things”.
He mentions that there would be war, death and plague and the gathering of disciples then the end would come. The 1st world war began as a kind of joke among the generals, but after asking volunteers to join the fight, it lasted for so long and so many people were dying that civilians were conscripted into the army to help win the war.
The Beginning of the End is described also in the book of Revelation as the four horsemen of the apocalypse, the four horsemen ride and then the war comes to an end and a new event takes place the gathering of Jesus’s disciples. This event where the news of Gods kingdom is given to the world is significant because Jesus says that if it were not for this preaching of the kingdom from door to door, the end of the system would have taken place with the end of the 1st world war and God’s Kingdom would have happened straight away. Instead, people were given a second chance to learn and know about Jesus’s prophecy of the Time of the End and the start of his second coming by hearing about from the bible.
Armageddon is the end of the human system, the world that we now live in. Revelation describes how the close disciples of Jesus go to God’s world and when every one of them has been taken from the earth how the angels begin to sound the seven trumpets that lead to the end of the human system of politics and human war. This is why soldiers (and everyone else who love God) leave their careers in the military and work in a peaceful way. Because as the many armies of the human nations get stronger and the technological weapons get deadlier, it is only going to go one way.

Can we simplify justice?

Can we simplify justice?
So that everyone
Can understand it.
Can justice have a heart
Like a man’s heart?
Not a labyrinth
Not a maze in a palace garden
Not an overgrown city in a Si-Fi picture;
But a flower
Growing towards the light
A flower made of light
Where light makes flowers.

Can we simplify justice?
Remove the splinters
Heal the bruises;
How simplified can justice be?
Is it
Wrong to say justice is simple
Easy to understand
Teachable to children
Memorable
Easier to pass than a math’s exam
Close to the heart
Of God and man
Like the food we eat and digest
A table of justice
Where everyone can sit down –
No – it is truly right.
