Now you call this living?

Now you call this living
But what is living without loving
And what is love but a verb
Nothing more than a misconstrued word
Taken out of context by the world

We all strive for happiness
And society tells us “love” is the foundation
But they’ve sealed it in an unobtainable jar
in which we labeled “expectations”
and placed it on a pedestal so high it gets lost within the stars

And although I did come from a broken home
And everyone I’ve ever known
eventually ends up alone

I still had high hopes

Hopes that love was not a lie

I’d find the brightest star each night
Make a wish and close my eyes
Send it to the sky above
Wishing someone would prove my theory wrong about love

But I’ve been proven right again

The truth is that love is dead
As are the stars in the sky
The 2nd star to the right was my wishing star
And inevitably it too
Like all the others
Burned out tonight

-AB

2 Timothy 2:19-21 (NIV)
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
