We are the Choices We Make

The image is a composite of a foggy late evening in the woods and Black-eyed Susan’s and Queen Anne’s Lace…the cold and dark and warm and light…it’s always your choice!

 

The Haunting in You

 

You can’t run from the haunting in you!

 

Your deed was dirty and evil in kind

Now you’re running for your life you’re loosing your mind

In the midnight forest in the mountains deep

Imagination wide open and your mind can’t sleep

What’s that sound to the left?

What’s that sound to the right?

What’s that sound that that you hear that goes bump in the night?

You set down to rest, your back to a large tree

But fear overcomes you, your mind’s on a spree

Of death and of terror…

And of things that approach you unnaturally

You feel your chest growing tight to your back

As the ground below you opens a crack

A hand reaches up from the cold dampen earth

And you beg to bargain, but what your life worth?

You scream as you promise to change your ways

If God will save you; give you back your lost days

Daylight comes and you’re back on the run

Will you run to the light?

Will you’re promise be done?

As you run you remember the dark will return

Betray your promise and tonight you may burn

 

You awaken from your nightmare but the damage is done

Do you turn yourself in?

Or do you really run?

You can’t run from yourself and you are what you do

The place where you live is the haunting in you
