second thoughts: "to go down with my ship"?

For Love


I wonder: how can I follow this plan?

I think I have to go down with my ship

Although sensible for some other man

Less steadily held in history's grip

His common sense seems mere nonsense to me


"On to the future!  Leave behind the past!"

They say to me yet how can I agree?

I have no future from what I can see

So take my stand as first I did at last

To do what the others only dreamed of


And if I do this: it will be for love


+Steven Curtis Lance

Hang in there, Steve. You'll see a 'sign' of what to do....

how sad... I think love was the original causes so many to give up and abandon themselves and cry out "in the name of love!"...To me, it's as sad as the many outrages done in the name of God. People will do anything if they believe they're doing "what's right."

god IS love. And many heartwrenching acts are done under the banner of either title.

Good work! But if you do.. go....down...with....the ship.... watch that first fathom or two. That's where most of us drown. - Bill
