metaphors…

you think there’s some kinda heaven you go to…some kinda paradise…where everybody gets a mansion and a new body…streets of gold…all that business…

what the Bible says…

Bible says a lot of things…it’s contradicting in its contradictions…says you gotta be washed in the blood of the lamb…that’s a metaphor…the book speaks in metaphors…

sure…I can see that…metaphors…

just like you have to be born again…how can you be born again…metaphor…

so you don’t think there’s any streets of gold…no mansions…

don’t know what there is…never been to paradise…been to Brown County in the fall when the leaves were golds and orange…burnt colors…real pretty like…

that’s your paradise…

yep…that’s my paradise…

just dead leaves…

yea…just dead leaves…those colors mean something…resurrection…they die but they always come back…

different leaf…

…why you gotta ruin my metaphor…

One thought on “metaphors…

  1. Nice piece. Amazing how we can all be so sure of things we have read about but have not seen. I believe the bible is God’s Word, but whether I understood it all or not, and whether I interpreted it right or not, well…I’ll only know for sure when I’m dead. Being human means it’s possible to be mistaken about things. Sincerity is a wonderful concept, but it’s no guarantee of accuracy.
