That the resurrection is real.

Standard

God help me that I have been so focusing on deaths and endings.
I am supposed to be a believer.
That new things come from destruction.
I’m the one that can’t do Godspell without “Beautiful City.”
Why be defeatist now?

“Is it true that after this life of ours
we shall one day be awakened by a
terrifying clamour of trumpets?

Forgive me, God,
but I console myself that the beginning
and resurrection of all of us dead
will simply be announced
by the crowing of a cock

After that we will remain
lying down a while
The first to get up
will be mother

We’ll hear her, quietly
laying the fire, quietly putting
the kettle on the stove and
cosily taking the teapot out of the cupboard.

We’ll be home once more.”

  1. This is random, but I’ve been curious for a while: What is your icon from? The makeup scheme reminds me a lot of a costume I’ll be working on shortly, ironically. Was just curious!

    Keep your chin up! <333
