Who Am I?

advent 1

Who am I, in the light of a candle
burning in a circle of evergreen
Who am I, as I wait on the mystery
coming to us as a promise unseen

Wondrin’ and waitin’, I watch the light
of a star that’s shinin’ in the heavens at night
Could it be possible that I’m loved by you?
Is the candle burnin’ a message true?

It’s easy to doubt, it’s easy to fear
Often I wonder if I’ve got it clear
The living rumor of a love so pure
is the healing my heart needs for sure

Candles burnin’, north, south, east, west,
with the light of the center candle, confess
Shinin’ a call for peace on earth
rekindling in each the spark of our worth

Who am I, in the light of a candle
burning in a circle of evergreen
Who am I, as I wait on the mystery
coming to us as a promise unseen

Who am I…

Who am I?

More Whole Soul Gone

More Whole Soul Gone   by Randy Creath 1/17/13

 

I want mad singing and wild love

Sensitive fingers wrapped in velvet gloves

I need crazy guitars and keyboards, child

With drums and bass right along beside

More…

 

Tear the curtain from the halls of rock

Tattooed ballad in a silken stocking

Heart pounding like a wild horse runnin’

In the midnight of a moon that’s turnin’

Whole…

 

Ain’t a mystery though the question is

What’s a martyr learn by wanting to live?

In the rhythm and blues of flight

Cloaked in wispy bands of smokey light

Soul…

 

Trouble learnin’ to let it go

Hold on fast and lose it slow

Turn the corner and hit the gas

The edge is comin’, comin’ fast…

Gone…

Who I am…

If I haven’t made it clear, let me try again…

I’m a God-haunted artist informed and fueled by a passionate pursuit of truth and hope.

I find beauty in surprising places and offer grace to as many people as my frailty allows.

I’ve been blessed and I’ve suffered. I am human and I will honor the humans around me.

I don’t have many answers but I’m aware of quite a few questions.

Life isn’t about getting rich or gaining power over others.

My longing is to offer love and life to all who will receive it.

Mystery is imminent for all those will seek it amidst the simplicity of life.

Those who are emminent are rarely trustworthy guides but may, at times, provide examples of how not to find peace.

I’m not always comfortable in my own skin but I’ve no other skin to wear so I’ll try to be myself as much as possible.

I’m on a journey.

I hope you are as well…
