Dreamers

We are dreamers

Doing what we love

With the gift that God sent from above

Living our dream

Showing the world

Who we are

And what we can do

Making all our dreams come true

We’re not afraid

Of what people think

Being ourselves

That’s all that matters

Helping them see

The beauty within

And where our story begins

Of Light And Questioning

Canto I: I
I tasted sweetness but instead kissed bitterness on the lips
I exchanged uniqueness for sameness
and
Brokenness for seeming wholeness bright and red
but rotten to the core
You gave me beauty for ashes of a smoldering fire
that should have flickered out long ago
Abundance for a city of dead men’s thoughts and
dead men’s bones
Gifted me with riches in exchange for rusted spikes
Nails that I drove
Drown me in your infinite ocean
Stain me brilliant with your scarlet waves
Crush me and grind my bones to incense
And I will sing of you in the morning
Selah

Canto II: Head Injury Girl
I am the child of accident and circumstance
Created out of formless chaos
Broken, I become a new thing
I grasp for love, I want, I hunger
Behind these eyes, these blackened eyes
I am unknown, unknowable, unknowing
Drown me in your infinite ocean
Wash me in crimson fountains
And raise me up again unto dawnlight
Selah

Canto III: Lucien
Child of Light where art thou?
Come to me in blackest night
Heal my bleeding limbs pierced by stained glass shards
Lucien O Lucien whence comest thou?
I burn with wanting, with waiting
Drown me in oceans of light
Cauterize my wounds with brilliant luminescence
Wash me in pools of Eos
And I will sing of you at break of day
Selah

Canto the Last: Tuco Amongst the Tombs
I’ve found no answers in Religion
Only poltergeists of lesser things
That haunt the ghostly nights
Only questions in Tradition
Little phantoms that dog my heels
As I run through this graveyard
In search of gold but finding only dust
I lay dying in this city of vain imagination (The Lord is my Shepherd)
Parched in this nighttime country of mirages (I shall not)
Pernicious idols of my own creation leer at me from shadows (I)
Come to me O Adonai and bind my wounds with healing oils
Speak peace to me and quench my thirst from everlasting streams
Then I shall become again a child and bear thy yoke with gladness
Selah

Night Magic

The ceiling fan cools sweat on my forehead

And I open scars just a little to bleed these words.

My pulse beats a slow tempo in my ears in this midnight heat

I mix old pain and night magic like blue notes from an ancient saxophone
The walls creak back to me a susurration of evening shades
Hurt and triumph, sorrow and solace
I sweat this cancer from my pores
The product of my calloused hands-my calloused heart
So tonight I weave these words, I sing this melancholy melody
To the chorus of the night birds

Endless Sea

Drifting on an open sea

Lifeboat come and rescue me

Sirens reach from ‘neath the waves

To drag me down to a watery grave

Drifting on an endless sea
Savior come and rescue me
Dead things call from fathoms deep
Searching for my soul to keep
Captain come and calm the storm
Save me from aquatic doom
Silence waves and darkling things
Raise me up and I will sing

La Luz

You’re hurting

You’ve been crushed

By the things of this world

You thought they would bring you happiness

But instead they left you full of sorrow

And anguish

And you feel there is no hope

But you must remember

That after darkness

Light always follows

The Son will shine upon your life

He will heal your wounds

And take away your pain

You will find in Him

You joy you sought in this world

Just trust in Him

And you shall be happy forevermore

In My Father’s Arms

In my Father’s arms,
I am safe and secure
In my Father’s arms,
I find joy and peace,
In my Father’s arms,
I am forever happy
In my Father’s arms
Is where I want to be
In my Father’s arms
I wish to stay forever

~For my Father in Heaven and my father here on earth~

A Blind World

Why do people care so much

For the things of this world?

Why do they search for happiness

In something that will not last?

Why don’t they see

That there is something much greater,

Something that won’t fade away,

Like the worldly things they so eagerly follow?

Why don’t they realize

That it’s all worthless?

The only thing that matters

Is God’s love.

It’s the only thing

That can bring them eternal happiness.

But they so easily dismiss it

Like it doesn’t matter

And follow the ungodly things of this world.

Why is the world so blind?

Heartbreak of Fall

The leaves fall from your face

Where has that painted them gone?

It’s all turned to gray.

You paint the world with your tears,

Drowning hopelessness and fear.

It’s  a heartbreak of fall.

In every snowflake hides a song.

As the music rains down I can feel my body get warm,

I am close to you,

In the heartbreak of fall.

Hidden in the snowstorm is a scream

As you say

“Look closer, girl, I can be seen.”

Here in the heartbreak of fall.

Here is the sun hiding the twinkle of your eyes.

Holding your smile ever so cherished in the sky.

Hidden in this paintbrush,

There is love in every swirl.

As it dances over me to paint a perfect world.

Heartbreak of fall.

You shared your love,

Moving the world to make a smile.

How happy they will be,

Generations soon to see this rainbow in a bottle.

Heartbreak of fall.

Echoes of the Lost

Echoes of the lost and lonely

Only to be drowned out by the issues of the world.

Echoes of the lost and faded war

Is the enamel here to convince you that hope has died out.

What about the lonely children?

Break down these shadows that shield you from faith.

Let the light of God take you away.

Drowned in a future filled with pain.

When will hope exist again?

In the world of the echoes of the lost,

A little boy looks through the glass.

As he starts to wonder if hope is in his grasp,

Under the wreckage he finds it collapsed here.

Now we have relapsed in the war that scars our nation,

When hope is fired, watch the scars dissipate away.

Who will suture love in this sky of gray?

Who will be the clay to reunite our world?

Help the lonely girl in the photos that you see.

As she cries the sky of tumors sucks the spirit from me!

Where is the hope that is supposed to bleed through,

Tell me, hope, will I ever find you in the echoes of the lost?

-Ariel Perkins

Dedicated to Earth, Haiti, and all of the lonely suffering children of the world.

To all I say I love you!

My Praise Song

The joy of the Lord is upon me
The glory of the Lord is upon me
And I wanna praise You
I’m gonna praise You

I want to dance, dance, dance
I want to jump, jump, jump
I want shout, shout, shout
And praise the Lord

I want to feel the fire
I want to feel the flame
I want to be free
I want to shine for the Lord

I want to dance, dance, dance
I want to jump, jump, jump
I want shout, shout, shout
And praise the Lord

I want to dance, dance, dance
I want to jump, jump, jump
I want shout, shout, shout
And praise the Lord

Set me free
So I can praise You
Take away the chains
Take away the pain
I don’t want to be held back anymore

I want to dance, dance, dance
I want to jump, jump, jump
I want shout, shout, shout
And praise the Lord

Elle

Beautiful dancer lady

Dancing for the Lord

With such joy in her heart

Her love for Him is so strong

She can barely contain it

Her happiness is so contagious

She spreads her joy to others

For she is celebrating

Her chains are gone

So she dances for Him.

-Megan Parker
