Own Your Own

A Song In Process
On Your Own
Tamara Peachy
Copyright 2012 Tamara Peachy


Verse 1
A saw a couple walking past
they didn't turn back.
They must have not seen me
longing for their souls
to be introduced to Jesus.
To be saved from their sins.
I didn't want to interrupt them.


Chorus
Keep living your lives.
I won't be invasive,
I won't erase you
or even chase you.
I won't evangelize you
or baptize you.
Keep living your lives.


Verse 2


I looked to my left and my right.
no one was there.
They must have not seen me
longing for their soul
to be introduced to Jesus.
To be saved from their sins.
I didn't want to interrupt them.


Verse 3


I couldn't come to their funeral
didn't know who was there.
They must have not seen me
longing for their soul
to be introduced to Jesus
To be saved from their sins.
I didn't want to interrupt them.


Bridge
Keep living your lives.
I won't be invasive,
I won't erase you
or even chase you.
But, Jesus will
But Jesus will
Yes, Jesus will
He's too good to let you go on…

Words to God

Today I told the world that God hates me.
They believed it easily enough.
Today I told the world that God hates me.
They discussed it for a moment.
Today I told the world that God hates me.
They were shocked that I would think such.
Today I told the world that God hates me.
Today the world told God that I hate Him.
And they looked up.

Oh my God!

They cried out, "Oh my God, help!"
They cried out, "Oh my God help!"
Their screams were in my ears.
Their faces on my computer screen.
And across the street.
All the dying, all the thriving.
They were all crying out, "Oh my God, help!"
So I asked they politely, "To Whom are you referring?"
But they gave no answer
They didn't know their communal God.
so I gave no answer.

What Was

Make it clear
when money is disappearing
when life is continuing.
when money is cheapening
when the human soul is more expensive.
when money is invisible
when the mind is enlightening.
when money is grieving
when the human body is battling.
when money is leaving
when the heart is forgiving
when the human spirit is more costly
Look back and find
what was imperishable.

Eve

Eve, you broke
Eve, you broke down
Eve, you broke down my defenses
Eve, you broke down my defenses when I wasn't expecting
Eve, you broke down my defenses when I wasn't expecting you to
Eve, you broke down my defenses when I wasn't expecting you to break down
Eve, you broke down my defenses when I wasn't expecting you to break down my defenses.

Don't Touch

He was dashing and young
like a stone goddess who I couldn't ignore.
He was tempting and strong
like a rose dripping with rain.
He was blonde and dressed
like a garden of lilies freshly tended.
Everything was tended mother.
You raised him well.
Like a Samaritan at the well.

Coming

Brother, thank you for coming after me.
After my failure
and after my mistake.
Brother, thank you for coming after me.
After my humiliation
and after my fall.
Brother, thank you for coming after me.
After my trouble.
and after my ash.
Brother, thank you for coming.
Savior, when will you come.

Watch

bANG
it didn't meet  your expectations
of life and death.
Looking out my window
to see the man.
To see the robber.
To see the police.
To find who was on the victim's side.

Yours

Teach me how to speak Arab
despite my stubborn nature.
Teach me to speak Greek
despite my racist heart.
Teach me to speak English
despite my American pride.
Teach me love
despite my pride.
Teach me nothing.
Because I can't learn you words
because they are your own.

A Slave

Today I woke up before 6
My mom was up all night a takin
I was lyin on the couch, I was.
I didn't listen to a thang she had 2 say
She was busy yakin
while I was dead asleep.
She told me in the morning, I could sleep upstairs
because it were safe.
Now she's a sleeping on my couch.
She is a watchman
and I am awakened to a day of workin.

Anyone

Anyone want to SKYPE for the day?
Meet face to face?
Like God on resurrection day
facing the newness of the garden
before Mary passed His way.
Anyone want to SKYPE for the afternoon?
Meet face to face?
Like on the final presidential debate.
facing the discussion of the season
before election day.
Anyone want to SKYPE for the night?
Meet face to face?
Like sometime today?
After a writer gives her words away.
And fretfully leaves her cave
to face the gruesome reality.

Justice

How I long for Your justice
whatever it may be
the honey dripping down
or the water rising above the city.
How I long for Your justice
whatever it may be
the hand of mercy reaching for the defiled
or the cut throat bleeding
How I long for Your justice
no matter what it may be
a tower of babel
or a single song of holy, holy, holy.
How I long for Your justice
whatever it may be
a kiss from you only
passionately
from whoever it may be
be it
Judas or your bride or a company

Murder

Who should be my running mate?
As I run too far...
beyond all the voices
beyond all the scars.
Who should be my running mate?
As I run too far...
beyond all the red
white and blue
beyond the socialism and the swastika
Who should be my running mate?
Obama or Romney
Aborted baby or a pile of debt?
Who should be my running mate?
as I catch my breath as I feel the bullet
in all my brothers who feel the hatred from the steel.
Who should be my running mate?
A girl.


Whose Fault

My eyes are guarded from all the horror you saw.
You protect me from the big, bad world.
I was to young to know
what was...
I was too childish to understand physics and math and truth,
too young to understand war and reality and chaos,
too naive to understand love and sex and orgasms.
Now that you are too old to fix all your problems,
can I rescue you?

Birth

Tree of light
as you glow within
as a fountain of light
as a fountain with in
as a mountain that moves
in the direction of water
with a bride who is drowning
as the cross is her hope and then the daughter.

Stop Chasing

Angel, I am sorry I can't live up to your standard.
I have no wings.
Jesus, I am sorry I can't live up to your standard.
I don't have your robe.
Devil, I am sorry I followed you too long.
I don't like your control.

History ReRun

I am a prisoner of past wars millions slaughtered, millions chained, millions raped, millions betrayed. Their dark past played on a movie screen. Until the final scene.
