Las Vegas – Surrendering to love

It’s a wonder we’re not all dead with so much happening in the world.  I couldn’t stomach my ears to listen to Jimmy Kimmel talk about the mass shooting in Las Vegas.  It’s senseless and incomprehensible and I couldn’t bear to listen to it.  I write the fiction to escape from these things.  I figure life is hard enough.  When my husband asked me to listen and I just flat out rejected it, I wondered why.  Why?  Because I don’t like the way it makes me feel.  Helpless.  I don’t like that.  Angry.  I don’t like that.  What can I do?  I could only think of this song as answer.  I’ve been listening to Vancouver Sleep Clinic all day like an addict.  For some reason, this song strikes a chord with me for this situation.

Why are we having such a problem in this country with gun laws and gun violence?  We’re better than that!

Taking a deep breath, surrendering to love.

You are so worthy of everything
I have to give
But I burn with feeble offerings
Nothing to sustain
Fan against the flame
Oh what I’ve made

So take all of me
Please take all of me

It’s like I’m running away from me
It’s like I’ve taken the puzzle in me
And left it scrambled for all to see

It’s like I’m fighting behind these walls
And hiding through metaphors
This is real, these are flaws

So take all of me
Please take all of me

Love y’all.

Thank you so much for reading and for listening.

  1. Beautiful song…and it does reflect on what is happening and what love in this world should matter and uniting together as people and go against our government and what needs to be done with guns in our country. It sickens me to of what is happening in our world. I cried. It hurts my head and stomach.
    I’m saving this song and band to my list. I’m hooked on this song.

  2. If the country were as reasonable as the population I know from wordpress, we’d live in a much better place. Even though you reject listening to Kimmel’s rant. You’re adding your voice, and that’s the solution. We all need to be talking about the shooting.

    The world is a mess agapi, and even your infinite fountain of goodness cannot change the atrocities that happen daily. We can only do what we can do. Your words touch many and bring joy. That’s a big deal.
    Love love love ❤❤❤❤
