Inspiration Via Mumford & Sons
One of the WarriorPoets in our group shared a song with us that has been speaking to him lately. After reading the lyrics and listening to it, i can see why.
The tune is The Cave (video) by Mumford & Sons, who incidentally are nominated for Britain’s prestigious Mercury Prize.
The lyrics are powerful, especially for men who have known the pain, confusion, alienation and loss of identity which accompany pornography addiction.
In particular, these lines speak:
But I will hold on hope
And I won’t let you choke
On the noose around your neck
And I’ll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again
Another set of lines worth diving into are these:
So make your siren’s call
And sing all you want
I will not hear what you have to say
Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it’s meant to be
There is such a hunger in us all to live our lives as they are meant to be. And pornography indulgence is not life as it’s meant to be. Sex is not a commodity. People are not objects to be used an discarded. Relationships with genuine connection on all levels are what we are designed to have.
Pornography is counterfeit in every way imaginable.
