Sarrah's Words

Truth is what is known, that does not need defining. It is as simple as a smile. One only needs to recognize it. Once set into words, once defined, it is no longer simple, it becomes something we must explore, argue and rationalize

While the World Falls Apart

Yours is the voice that inspires, touches and sings
so much more than the empty words most music carries

Yours are the novels that encourage character and true strength and bravery,
that gives youth a more positive attitude to themselves

Yours is the music that flies to new heights of excellence and spirituality
with your delicate bow expressing love and discipline

Yours is the invisible voice of reason attempting to defuse
an untenable and inevitable political bomb

I was a child with you
loved and laughed with you

and now I see with tears in my proud eyes
that you are the invisible change happening

while the world falls apart

Why I Believe

I lay aside grandiose discussions of meaning and purpose,
theories of organization,
or arguments of faith and religious truth

I peel back ideas of imperfection and shame or sin,
pull away fears and anger of what humans have wrought

I step away from the fury of politics and philosophical discussion,
and despair in the divisive heated battles of words

I attempt to overcome the endless self-scrutinization,
and the hopeless battle for affection,
self- and sexual gratification

I take a breath deep
and shut out the roaring murmur of all this,
and glimpse the brilliant, yet hidden
traces of hope.
