taken from my book, "The Flies Are Bothering The Pig!"

Shine If You're Holy


Let my head explode

Into a thousand thoughts

Let my heart tingle

'Til it cannot stop

As my soul emerges

From the depths of loss

'Cause I want it back!

If "at all" I crack

And fall into the space


Get me back to good

After all is typed

That I needed typed

I can risk my life

But, for now, I cawn't

As forever walks

I will run!

And be



And when the maze's walls

Come tumbling down

The power of reality

Will overflow

And it will just keep


And flowing

And flowing

I can search my heart to find You

And You will live inside of me, God

You will have a place in my world

The place You've always had

Amy milestones appear

As landmarks of time

When my whole life

Flashes before my eyes

Gravity won't stop it's bleeding

Grab me whole

Take Your tole

Shine like gold

Never will I grow old

If I don't get to You here

Then I have yet to see what I can be

When You're here with me
