The sky is deep, the sky is dark

The light of stars is so damn stark.

When I look up, I fill with fear,

If all we have, is what lies here.

This troubled world, this broken place,

Then cold dead stars and outer space

I see no reason to persevere,

No reason to laugh or shed a tear,

No promises to keep and none to make,

No reason to sleep or ever wake

And so at night I still raise my eyes

To study the clear mysterious skies

That arch above us, as cold as stone.

Are you there God?

Are we alone?

No you are not.

Am not claiming to be a spokesman for GOD, but since I asked the same question and He told me no, I thought I would share it.

Have a good weekend and a good 2010.

I can't help about the shape I'm in, 

I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin.

But don't ask me what I think of you

I might not give the answer that you want me to.

Oh well........

Now when I talked to God I knew he'd understand

He said sit next to me; I'll be your guiding hand.

But don't ask what I think of you

I might not get the answer that you want me to.

Oh well.......

embrace the sin of envy as their creed.

Those who seek to banish envy as well,

only draw elaborate new maps of hell."

Kinda sounds like he's describing "Occupy" and the so-called 99%.
