I Died For Beauty


I DIED for beauty, but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.

He questioned softly why I failed?
“For beauty,” I replied.
“And I for truth,—the two are one;
We brethren are,” he said.

And so, as kinsmen met a night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names.

I love Emily Dickinson.
That skull is awesome and this is the best picture I've seen of it.

Without Christian values there'd be nothing to excuse smug trite human cliches like you.

Hi Jahteh,

I love the skull to and Emily Dickinson, lovely to see you here again :>)

RH ~ I haven't had an annony mousey here for a while, I must be doing something right at the moment!

Christian values or rather lack of values have brought this world to her elbows and knees,you should hang your head in shame!

I could wish to be smug and trite, but with impending Armaggedon I don't think I'll have a chance!

Is name calling a christian value?

I feel inspired to tell you that you may be sure all your sins shall find you out, in this life, very soon.

Please don't try running to Jesus, he is a best beloved of mine , we go way back, he is as appalled at the way so called christian folk behave as I am.

Crawl back under your stone RH, if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem!

You're confused. And you've ended with a nice cliche. Good.

........actually I ended with TWO cliches just for you :>)

Why not get you own blog and put your opinions there, they are not relevant here, although I tolerate christians I don't tolerate fools or bigots.

As I said before I think you will have enough to deal with very soon anyway!

Blessed Be

Wooh!- name-calling! Shameful.

I laugh at threats, I've got experience. The people to worry about keep them hidden.

Bye.

r.h.>>>christianity? a borrowed faith. a stolen idea. jesus = jesu = yoshua. a jew. a great man unlike the sordid organised faith you spread like a contagion.

"Surely it is the maxim of loving kindness, do not unto others that which you would not have done unto you."

Analects, Lun-yu XV,23, from the Confucian tradition,
circa 500 BC

Christmas is pagan as is easter

Sharon, what would we do without the online trolls to keep our lives interesting?

If Jesus were to come back today, that fool would lead the charge for crucifixion.
