The “Yes!” we scream, whispers “No”

Greet the reaper as he reaps 
and weep because of the same
  This silly game
  We do this to ourselves
 
We’ve mapped out our whole mission
We sketched the whole thing out
  The plan for our destruction
 
The black hole that is you
  It will consume you
More, more is your mantra
 The only thing that will not go is “no”
 
Inject the pleasure
Digest the pain
Is it all a game?
 
You dance,
You dance to your own dirge

About Paul O'Brien

I am a lot of things; saint and sinner. I struggle and I strive. I am a husband and father of three. I have been in pastoral ministry for 9 years. I went to school at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary but most of my schooling has been at the School of Hard Knocks. I have worked various jobs, including pheasant farmer, toilet maker, construction worker, and I served in the military. My wife and I enjoy reading at coffee shops, taking walks, hanging out with friends and family, and watching our three kid's antics. :)
