The Soul Of A Heart

She
She can’t see me
Here
I’m right here
Me
Come find me
You
I’ll come find you

Lost far
In the stars
Lost deep
Deep in each other’s eyes
A road so wide
As wide as our smiles
A love
I don’t have to go so far for
Bury
Bury me
Bury me
Deep
Deep in her heart

I’m here
I’m always right here
Right beside her
Far
Never so far
From her
Here
Is where
I wanna be

Here
Is where
I wanna be
Just her and me
Just her and me

Lost so far
Far in the stars
Lost so very deep
Deep into each other’s eyes
A road so wide
As wide as a smile
A love
I know
I know
I don’t have to go so very far
Bury
Bury me
Bury me
Deep
Deep inside her heart

I’m here
I’m always right here
Right beside her
Far
Never so far
From her
Here
Is where
It’s where
I wanna be

Here
Is where
I wanna be
Just her and me
Just her and me

Lost so far
Far in the stars
Lost so very deep
Deep into each other’s eyes
A road so wide
As wide as a smile
A love
I know
I know
I don’t have to go so very far
Bury
Bury me
Bury me
Deep
Deep inside her heart

Jackson Hope

Jackson Hope woke up today
He made coffee without a word to say
Today he’ll go back to work like always
but you can read the harsh lines glued to his face.

Jackson Hope is a man with a secret.
Jackson Hope is a man with many a regret.
Jackson has looked down many a barrel
And Jackson Hope has looked down many a bottle.

Hey Jackie
will you die today?
Hey Jackie
will you be okay?
Hey Jackie
Man who’s name is Hope
but no longer has any.
Hey Jackie
what do you have to say?

Jackson Hope stares at her picture.
He remains composed full of demure
Yeah, Jackie knows she won’t come back.
Jackson only sees his whole life black

Jackson Hope made mistakes.
Jackson hopes for sakes
Jackson lost a sense of purpose.
Jackie is only hard on the surface.

Hey Jackie
will you have mercy?
Hey Jackie
will you ever be happy?
Hey Jackie
Man who’s name is Hope
but can no longer see
Hey Jackie
when will you set yourself free?

Hey Jackie
can you ever forgive?
Hey Jackie
will you ever live?
Hey Jackie
A man who is Hope in name
will you always remain the same in vain?
Hey Jackie
when will you ever live?

Jackson Hope woke up today
He made coffee without a word to say.
A new love of his life walked his way
She smiled at him, now I think he’ll be okay.

Jackson Hope got all dressed up for her
Jackson remained composed and demure
Jackson picked up flowers on his way
Tonight Jackie feels okay.

Hey Jackie
how could you know?
Hey Jackie
where will you go?
Hey Jackie
Man who’s last name is Hope
Finally planted some of those seeds to sow
Hey Jackie
glad to see your smile flow.

Refrigerators

An old friend of mine and I had a discussion back when I was in my early twenties. It was about frustration. I was frustrated about something, and thought I could change it. My method was to constantly attack the problem head on.

Then my old friend pointed to a refrigerator that was in the room with us. He said, “Flemming. You see that refrigerator?”

I nodded yes.

He ran up and hugged it saying, “If I run up to this refrigerator, and attack it-“ He hugged the refrigerator harder. “I attack it.” Then he turned to me. “What is it now?”

I stared at him.

“It’s still a refrigerator. It was always a refrigerator, and it always will be a refrigerator.” He smiled, “Got it?”

I understood what he meant. I “got it”. But I never really understood or “got it”, until I applied it when I got many years older. You don’t understand some things till you do them and apply the belief. Sometimes we just don’t realize that we are stubborn, or our mind is set in a programmed way of thinking or belief.

So when I tell you all to stop attacking refrigerators, do you know what I mean? Do you know what my friend meant? Do you really “get it”?

When you stop attacking refrigerators, then maybe you will.

Because they were, are, and always will be refrigerators.

Stop attacking refrigerators.
