Immaculate Conception

In that moment of weakness
That intentional vulnerability of thine
May your sacred meekness
Become our yes of servility to the divine

God bless,

The Trip

The hum both steady and low
Of my father's truck
Sends me here below
Where coyotes give out luck

And with the luck they give
That sends you left or east
You mightn't be able to live
As a beauty or a beast

Apple trees grow proudly
Here in paradise
And giants bellow loudly
About their favorite vice

Dragons guard the towers of ivory
Knights safeguard the road
Wearing Arthur's livery
As if he were ne'er lowed

But then the humming stops
But then the trip has ended
Yet next time my spirit drops
I'll see again a world resplendent

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

In a Deep Dark Cave

In a deep dark cave
Unseen for many years
Far beyond where brave folk break down into tears

Across a broken chasm
Spanned by a gloomy bridge
Lies a blue phantasm alone in still umbrage

Its purpose chills my heart
And deepens many a fear
When will it depart, Lord? When will it disappear?

God bless,
Joshua Fahey

Turning When You're Tired

Turning when you're tired
When in a muddle the mind is mired
Feels like you're on a pyre
A hard skill to acquire

Harder still I know
Is turning when you're stone
Petrified from sin and death
Your heart cut and alone

But turn and turn we must
Defying that spiritual rust
Begging for God's grace
So we may turn to see His Face

God bless,
Joshua Fahey
