[bad situation]

가슴 속에 아픈 맘
어려움만 있는 미래
있는 그대로의 자리

편안한 곳은 없는가.

내 자신이 뭘 하고 있는지 몰라

의지력이 조금씩 부족해지고
과거의 나보다 더 나은 내가 되고 싶은데 도데체 그것이 무엇인지
정말로 모르겠고

내 이상을 어느 거울에 비교해 볼 수 있으면
확실히 아 이거다! 라고 알수도 없는게

새로운 평지로 가는게 정말 두렵다

이제는 기로에 서는 20

결실이 보이지 않는 투자를 해야하는 세대

조급해 조금만 더 일찍이 날 돌아볼 수 있었으면

답답해 집중하다 게눈 감추듯 꿈을 잊어먹는 내 건망증이

도데체 무엇을 해야지 좋은 건지 모르겠고


난 진짜 바보고 늦게 알아차리는 둔치라 정말 어떻게 사는지 몰라

근데 왜 안 말해주고 안 보이시나요

내가 어둡고 눈이 먼건가

난 귀가 안들리는 사람인가요

[His guide]

큰 이유로 내게 5000년의 펜팔로 사랑을 고백한 신이 있다는 것

아들을 십자가로 내 모든 죄를 사하신 그런 사랑의 원천인 주님이

내 삶을 인도하고 내 옆에 계시다는 걸 느끼는 지금 오늘 아침

같은 하루가 가끔식 힘들때 있다는 것 나 물론 방탕할 테지만, 나 정말 죄인이지만

역시나 그분은 똑같이 날 바라본다는것 사랑한다는 것.. 구원하셨다는 것

웃을 수 있는 건 아직 내 인생은 시작도 안했다는 것.

내가 행복한 이유는 날 언제나 버리지 않겠다는 그런

아니, 내 편에 계신 저기의
듬직한 두팔

어느새 오셨는지 주님은
내 마음을 안으셨네

[What I wanna Do]

I feel in me a fiery passion

Constant influx of fire in me

I want to just leap and shout my guts out

rip my clothes and be all I can be to be crazy and shout

to be, for once be true to what’s been said about a king who’s done it

praising and dancing and not worrying about anything other


when you reach the point where you’ve already let out

when you’ve stood in front of people and you’ve testified

life doesn’t seem so normal or normal life doesn’t fit you

you are at a point when wasting time is of no interest
at a point in time when you want to create

SONGS MOVIES FILMS ARTS with God being our stimuli with your annointing

let us be humble to each other and be free, receptive of God

To sense His healing
to make your words alive

PASSAGES of life and in my canyons, depths of darkness
YOU SHINE THE LIGHT in me, and you grab me, hold me
YOU MOLD ME into Your shape, I’m UNWORTHY!!

oh….GOD! make me all in urs, all in urs, all in urs,..



두드리라. 근심을 털고 기도를 해라. 넌 모든 일을 할 수 있다.

난 한국 사는 청소년, 청년들을 깨우기 위해 살고싶다.
그들의 자각을 깨우고 싶다.
그들의 불안을 지우고 싶다.
그들이 따뜻한 혁명을 일어낼 수 있게 만들고 싶다.
그들에게 기독교라는 이름을 내걸고 하지는 않아도
기독교의 사랑으로 메세지를 전하고 싶다.



Edited version of the rough collection

I’ve looked at the posts I’ve made over the years and streamlined them.

Analyzing the texts, I’ve noticed the ideas can be categorized into :

1) my bad situation and my despair,

2) how I felt God telling me and touching me,

3) what I want to do as a result of His presence or message.

4) extra information depicting specific situations I was in when writing the posts.

Therefore, what I did was cut out (4), and categorize the passages according to the categories I’ve set. A reason I went with this is, with my short knowledge about the Psalms, I’ve noticed that the author of Psalms almost always writes down what was going on through the flesh mind, and then later put down what God has revealed – the inner peace felt after the awakening or realization of God’s presence.

20s Ambition – draft #1:brain dump

20 Ambition – project intro

This is a see-where-it-gets type of attempt,

where I bring a LOT of stuff I’ve written in this theme – the ambition of the 20’s,

and bringing them all in to fill enough lyrical ideas to make a song (the idea literally just hit me as I was writing 🙂 )

I’m a Christian, and my ideas are based loosely along that line of the Christian idea being God being by my side,

under whatever circumstances. Through Facebook, Cyworld posts, I’ve written many that resonate

with that idea – centered on inspiring fellow youths in their 20’s. It’s what I’ve struggled a lot with, and

still do today.

The main theme seems to be the conflict between what others think you should do what what you actually want to accomplish.

So this is how it’s going to work. I am going to start editing the drafts, and to have no creative restrictions in this editing process I’ll categorize the multiple drafts – as I make them into lyrics – into ’20 Ambition’.

That way I’ll experiment with what kind of way is the best in composing music, as I still am trying to make sense of how this is going to be a passive hobby for me.

So, my next post will be the raw dump of posts regarding the above theme.
