(I absolutely love the flip of “Strange Fruit” in the background of this.  Day 353…)

Hanging on for dear life…

The cause you’d die for
That bedazzled cross you sacrifice your life for
Better be worth it
I hope the pendant never tightens the necklace around your throat
And you end up lifeless on someone’s corner
Don’t get comfortable with hanging.
Jesus Himself only lasted three days
And His crucifix wasn’t nearly as valuable as the cut on yours

This isn’t a call to not wear jewelry
This is a plea to not make jewels your salvation
And while you’re grasping for release from the clasp
It’s too late
