Job's Tears-pt. 1 - Finding the Four, The Way of the Spirit Trail
Goel, goel, may these tears redeem me.
Fortune falling,
Kneel beneath me,
Respond to my cries!
Friends forsake me,
make me anger with words;
What do you say?
Say what you mean!
I, too, mean to tell.
Goel, goel, may these tears redeem me.
Goel, goel, take me, use me, just free me!
---
Goel, goel, may these tears redeem me.
I'm not to blame,
I need my name,
What shame now I know.
You took all I had, I carry no more,
My worth now is gone.
What do you say?
Say what you mean!
I, too, mean to tell.
Goel, goel, may these tears redeem me.
Goel, goel, take me, use me, just free me!
---
Wonder at the day, will it go away, what is all this for?...
Why oh, why oh?!
Take away my wealth, challenging my health, no more need for hope...
Why oh, why oh?!
You who stand so near, grinning ear to ear, oh so quick to judge!...
Why oh, why oh?!
Rivers running dry, people left to die, how much do we know?...
Why oh, why oh?!
---
Goel, goel, may these tears redeem me.
Defeated I lie,
Leave me to die,
The salt of my tears cares to dry.
You give no hope, hope no more lives,
There's nothing left for me.
What do you say?
Say what you mean!
I, too, mean to tell.
Goel, goel, may these tears redeem me.
Goel, goel, take me, use me, just free me!

about

The Copoetics

Music is the vehicle that moves us onward, driving us to honor the language it has etched into the eaves of our souls. From music we learn that it is in giving we receive; thus, we give ourselves to the music of our souls and to opening the pathways between the souls of us all. We meet as our own unique poets, creating an entirely new poem, Copoetics of this life, this living, this love. ... more
