Bells and whistles, screaming and roaring
Technology to arouse
Toasters and stovetops, heating and searing
Breakfast in the house
Chaos and order, pushing and pulling
Family down to the mouse

God bless,

Why do I Let my Heart be Troubled

Why do I let my heart be troubled
To seek out emptiness and heartbreak
To stray from you, my lover, my friend
Yet I turn away into a cage of my own make
Grant me the grace to hear you until the end
Grant me mercy so I may stay awake
Create a pure heart in me out of what is crumbled

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Blueberry Haiku

Smokey humid woods
With bushes of blueberries
Perfect for pancakes

God bless,

Soulless Broken Things

A funny thing to break things down
Into the pieces of the whole
That cannot add up to the sum
And cannot make a soul

And yet there is much to learn
In soulless broken things
Just not as much as it is worth
To heed the King of kings

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
