He's acting out his life:
LifeWar is essentially a very condensed version of my life story, 5 years at a time. Broken down by each line, it goes like this:
When we are born, though born into sin, we are in essence clean and innocent. We begin life crawling, and I liken this action to crawling in the dirt like a soldier at war.
When I was very young, my motherís singing voice was engrained in me. She was always singing around the house and she has a beautiful singing voice. I attribute my singing talents to her.
When I was around 10 or 11, I began to take more of an interest in my faith. Soon after, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior, and although I was very young at the time, I still look back on that as a defining moment for me.
When I was a teenager I found hardcore music Ė a genre that on one hand preaches acceptance, and on the other, can be very hate-fueled. For much of my teenage years, I found myself hating a lot of the things that I was seeing Ė drug and alcohol abuse, unholy sex-obsession. I didnít feel like I hated the people, but more the sin itself.
My father is a great teacher, both in Biblical knowledge and that of being a mature, responsible man of God. Especially in my young adult years, I heeded his words regarding these things.
I spent most of my 20ís working very hard Ė long days, learning new things, etc. Sometimes I feel like I spent about 90% of my waking life working in my 20ís. But this was an extremely formative time for me. These were the years that really shaped me into the man I am today.
I recently turned 30, and in many ways I still see life as a continuous battle. In some ways I feel like I may have more figured out, but in many others, Iím still learning. Life can be a struggle, a war.
