• kvm commented on the post, methods 6 years, 9 months ago

    “If I die young”. There are different ways to progress forward upon the track we are all running. Different speeds, different angles. But I suppose it is not so much in the method, but more, what are we running for?

  • kvm commented on the post, under 6 years, 9 months ago

    Why do I even bother writing? Yes, there is the unexplictable draw of my fingers to the keyboard. The urning in my chest to put words to what is so often unexpressed. But I do not know, it seems I am always falling beneath something, thoughts, fears, opinions, the next passing car.

  • kvm commented on the post, satisfy 6 years, 10 months ago

    Only one can satisfy. And that is a hard lesson to learn. And an even harder one to abide with. Jesus, saviour, will satisfy every need. The answer isn’t found in anything else, love Him, and your life will be complete.

  • kvm commented on the post, somebody 6 years, 10 months ago

    I would like to be somebody than to carry the burden of this name. I would rather be able to float by silently in the background, than to be permanently tied to my family that only maims. Oh, the power and the slavery that comes with a name.

  • kvm commented on the post, draw 6 years, 10 months ago

    Forming a future and a path for yourself out of nothing but the ground laid before you and a bit of thin air is a daunting task to say the least. I could be an adventurer and write about honesty, and things that often go unnoticed in the world, or I could be an engineer and make a difference and change the world, and maybe I should be pursuing…[Read more]

  • kvm commented on the post, spent 6 years, 10 months ago

    I am spent. I’m done with all of this, all of it. It’s time to go, it’s time to smash everything I once knew, it’s time to leave, hopefully there will soon be time to love. I am spent, Lord help me repent.

  • kvm commented on the post, roar 6 years, 10 months ago

    Courage. What is it? Most don’t know, or maybe we just fear the fact that it is a strong and humble force raging just below the surface in all of us. Or maybe we are all just mistaken, unable to acknowledge what courage really looks like. For no, often it is not the force that stands nobly and roars loudly, but it is the quiet voice at the end of…[Read more]

  • kvm commented on the post, themselves 6 years, 10 months ago

    I feel inconsistent. It’s always them, and me. And I guess I’ve always counted that as a bad thing, but maybe it’s not. After all, the road to greatness is narrow, traveled by few, and often walked alone. Either way, it is well with my soul.

  • kvm commented on the post, major 6 years, 10 months ago

    Failure. I refuse to sink to your level, but COME ON. I just can’t win. Simple as that, I can be admired, sometimes, I can move on, I can be great. But never it feels, will I find a fit. I have no place in this world. I feel like I am cut from a different cloth than most, and that inhibits two things, truly connecting with many, and the avoidance…[Read more]

  • kvm commented on the post, teach 6 years, 10 months ago

    What is there to learn from this world? That is the first question. For no matter what we want to impart upon others, we must first learn and accept it for ourselves. There are not many greater blessings to learn, or to be given the privilege to teach.

  • kvm commented on the post, guard 6 years, 10 months ago

    Something that always seems to be up. Whether I’m so open I’m closed, or I’m hostile, or so pleasant mention of something being wrong beneath the surface is unthinkable. And, letting down that guard I worked so diligently to build, it has been, and is, a long, enlightening, battle; and a road I walk most often alone.

  • kvm commented on the post, steps 6 years, 10 months ago

    There are many stages on the journey each person travels in their life. Many steps. They aren’t rules, they aren’t requirements, or pressures, or things that are even at times expected of us. They are the things that mark the people we become. The key isn’t how many are taken, at what speed, or in what direction. When it really comes down to it,…[Read more]

  • kvm commented on the post, entrance 6 years, 11 months ago

    She is tall and the image of grace. She does not just enter a room, she makes an entrance. With every step tongues twitter and eyelids flutter. The tail of her skirts clears a way behind her. Bless the hearts of […]

  • kvm commented on the post, civilize 6 years, 11 months ago

    Suffocation. Has about the appeal of settling down or conforming to society. To civilize is to lose everything that is wild and trembling, everything that is alive.

  • kvm commented on the post, upper 6 years, 11 months ago

    Stiff upper lip. And try, really try, but in the end it is futile. There are those times, when despite the circumstance, one must cry.

  • kvm commented on the post, gone 6 years, 11 months ago

    Everyone is gone. It is too painful. They’re gone and away, and it is necessary, and great, but being apart and so often alone proves to be often stiflingly hard. I could tell you about my dreams, but it wouldn’t […]

  • kvm commented on the post, fresh 6 years, 11 months ago

    The gentle dusting of fresh snow across the rooftops and the trees. The white sky filled with promise. The solace hanging in the air.

  • kvm commented on the post, dominant 6 years, 11 months ago

    Constant struggle. For power. For dominancy. Carelessness. Disregard for those hurt along the way. I can’t wait to get out.

  • kvm commented on the post, mass 6 years, 11 months ago

    I had I dream that I was in love. And as we held one another close, and thought of obligations that seemed insignificant in the moment, I knew it was not true, it would soon come to an end, and I would yet again […]

  • kvm commented on the post, happy 6 years, 11 months ago

    An empty word. Happy is a fleeting feeling, without any true back up. Joy can exist regardless of circumstance, whereas the pursuit of happiness is about as nobel a pursuit as fighting to win the lottery. Fight […]
