Youtube channel

I now have a Youtube channel! My user name is Rakie1991. I uploaded a very funny video which my mom and I made last Sunday. We had so much fun! And I think it turned out pretty funny! :D

My orders are to fight.

Then if I bleed, or fail,
Or strongly win, what matters it?

God only doth prevail.

The servant craveth naught
Except to serve with might.

I was not told to win or lose,—
My orders are to fight.

Lenten prayer

by Me

Die, die to yourself,
And to everyone else;
Die to the life you've been given.
Give yourself up
To the pain and the death
In the journey that leads to the Cross.

Look, look at yourself
And give up all hope
of courage and strength within.
Turn outward your gaze to the Christ of the Cross,
For life with abundant joy.

March 16th, 2010

Sitting outside, with my back against the house,
Sipping warm, creamy chai; the spice
Of winter lingers in my mouth,
While the sun warms my bones.

Gentle breeze lifts my paper
Blackbird calls from the edge of the pond,
Which has no ice on it now, well,
A little bit far down there.

The sun tingles on my skin
So white, could I get a tan
Sitting here five minutes more?
Not yet, I have to thaw first.

A hen and rooster are scratching in the dirt
He tries to tackle her and she runs off
Fluffing her feathers in disgust,
But perhaps she likes him just the same.

Willing to die
you give up
your will. Keep still
until, moved
by what moves all else, you move.
