Love: A Biblical Essay written 2003

By Damien Knight

 Love is Kind and forgiving, for it is said: “Love covers over all wrongs.” Proverbs 10:12. Goodness is part of love.

Be Happy, Free (Oct 2012)

By Damien Knight

I felt so trapped here
Now I understand
I know what it means
The past I hate to dwell
On things I once said
That it was over
If I bury all pain
I can forget misery
If I smile and dream
Yes then it is over
Say it was once me
But now I’m happy
I now get it
Count my blessings
I once was angry
Now that’s not me
I won’t be that
I won’t be weak
It’s not who I am
Not me anymore
I am strong
Yes you can be sure
So lean on me

By Damien Knight

Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While I could write about what he means to people today but his words stand on their own.

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

With today’s news and increased visibility of racial tensions let us not forget Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s dream. After all :  “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
