Unblendably Different

Please Note:
This poem will be added to my book of poetry on recovery. The pain of watching my friends reject Christ and continue on a path of destruction has been challenging and brought out so many emotions over this past year. In regard to my book of poetry on recovery:

This book of poetry along with 100 other selected poems will be available in published book form in early 2005.The poems are complete, but the artist is busy painting. I hope you enjoy and find a kinship and healing through my painful journey. May God bless your honesty and recovery.

“It is essential that we drive out our family’s enemies so future generations won’t have to battle them. Whether our enemies take the form of alcoholism, drug use, sexual abuse, or other problems, we must resolve them rather than hand the legacy down to our children and grandchildren.” The Recovery Bible (based on the story of the Israelites in the book of Joshua).

My life is about breaking the chain; breaking the chain of alcoholism and co-dependency in my family history. With God at the forefront of my life, He has allowed me to painfully work through my past hurts, hang-ups, and habits; and I have come out on the other end a child of God that is free from my past. This life is not about me, but about becoming a useful tool for my Lord’s work. Now that I find myself on the other side, there is hope, strength, and excitement of what is yet to come. What I can be trusted with now that I am of so much more use to further God’s kingdom. I share my past only to assist and help others that are bound in the same chains that I was in, and I challenge you to break free and become all that God planned from the beginning. And now for the poem:

"Unblendably Different"


Unblendably different
unable to mingle
and fit into
your box
of a carnal lifestyle
methodically dream sleeping
your life away
in consecutive
intoxicated fantasies
of pleasure
that exist
only in your
emotional lifestyle
that depicts
everything
I detest
in this
warped world
hungry to feed
on self fulfillment
and material gain
how can I jump
into your concoction
and mix?
Complacency
so far beyond
where I want to be
Allow me to be
unblendably different
for you, dear Lord
