City & Colour - Against the Grain
You need not to climb mountain tops
You need not to cross the sea
You need not to find a cure
For everything that makes you weak
You need not to reach for the stars
When life becomes so dark
And when the wind does blow against the grain
You must follow your heart.

Can I hide my stupid hunger? Fake some confidence and cheer. Wish I were here.

This Providence - A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
You say, “I can convince anyone of anything.”
Provoking the anger of a jealous God
Still you spin a web of lies, fear, lust, pride, greed, and shame
You say no one escapes the pain.

It was quite a travel through time, driving out to the church. I said out loud to no one, ‘This is my old life’. I thought a lot about the funeral - where I sat, what I wore, who else was there, the picture of Zion that was blown up poster-sized and placed by the alter (would someone take that to keep - a shrine to Zion? Or was it hidden away in an attic somewhere, his image still too painful to see?), the people who spoke (his middle school teacher, Breana, his dad) - and then my brain drifted to the roads I was on and the memories tied to them: Brandon, Britt, Libertytown, Kim Duskey, the short time I worked in Spring Ridge. Truly, bits and pieces that made up the whole of my old life. I thought about how much I didn’t miss that life or even those people; it’s as if they are now merely characters in a story - they didn’t really exist. We are all strangers now. I feel like that should make me sad, but it doesn’t. Mostly, I am relieved to be rid of those years and faces.

I know we are young
But we won’t always be,
So marry me
Let’s not be that
Predictable, young couple
Changing, moving on
