At what 
You think 
Is a 
Low Point 

In what 
You think 
Is a 
Bad day 

Take a 
Deep breath 
Say a 
Thank you 

And watch 
How it 
Beautifully unfolds.

Be Maccabees

Musical Adaptation by the very talented Stephanie Romay, more information at https://www.facebook.com/ellayelmusic

I wish I could tell you
Everything is ok.
I wish I could say it

I wish I could tell you
Let's just go on our way
No looking, holding back

But I can't.

What I can tell you is
It WILL be ok
Everything's according to
His way.

But that doesn't mean that
There's not a lot to do
To pretend so is simply
Not true.

And I can't.

And yes, life is good,
Yes, G-d is good,
There's so much to thank
And enjoy

You know it's not easy
To be Maccabbees,
At peace while still
At war.

Yet, we can. Yes we can.

The Older You Get

Time really does start to fly,
And not only when you're having fun.
You race to try to catch it, catch up,
To feel more, be more, not to miss out,
But the moments still pass right by.
Hard to tell the present from the past,
What was from what is momentarily.
It's not so much about you anymore,
What you are and what you could be,
But only about what you can give.
That becomes the only true measure
of time.

Now and Here

Now and Here

I yearn for
A language
That all
Can hear.

A message
For once
Not based
On fear.

A prayer
For peace
To bless,

For light that
Is sweet,

For breath that
Is felt 
From afar
And from near.

A vessel
That's true,
And clear.

My Heart is attacked
My Joseph in flames
Inpatient admission
Strong pulse still remains.

David's divided
Arteries and veins
His doctors are reckless
His arms are enchained.

Truth will not sprout
Without fertile ground
In a Mount full of foxes
No search for a hound.
