Elijah (Elijah's Comet) By John McKinley Pride Jr
Elijah (Elijah's Comet)I named this painting after my son because it reminded me of him so full of life and color. My wife thought it looked like a comet which even gives more of a reason to remind me of my son because every thing he does is so up in the air and every thing must be done fast. So I hope you love this painting just as much as I love it.
“Conspire to inspire thousands”
Contrive to escape the knowledge of others means of self-destruction.
They are excogitating, in finding ways to get into your mind.
Fulfilling all their own desires to bring fire from the ones they control.
Never wanting to mend the heart
Never letting the white dove free from their grasp; breaking the olive branch.
Sitting upon hills looking down laughing at the ignorant they have built.
They sit upon a pedestal built by the blind.
Conspire to inspire thousands
Yet the ones with blood money will make you a pariah to those you try to lead.
What words can you speak and will they change the world?
What words can you write and will anyone read them?
Will they change the world?
What will they change if you do not speak out loud?
What will it change if the words stay in your head?
What would it change if they cannot hear you?
What will it change if you don’t share your dreams with even the ones that you think don’t care for you?
