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 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.
