Forgetfulness – C.D. Anders (The Unnecessary Blog)

Another day, angry,

angry at my family,

my friends,

the world,

at you,

at me,

blood boiling over

in the name

of selfish devotion,

under the vacant tent and banner

of self righteousness

as I beat my chest

like the Pharisee,

forgetting that my Lord

died for that tax collector,

my family,

my friends,

the world,

for you,

for me–

paid with blood not boiling

in rage

but a pure love,

a love that opened

the tomb

and swallowed up death

in victory,


forgiveness and life

for all

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 (NKJV)

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
