Its Not About You

It’s Not About You

I got something to say to you
And I hope you Understand
I hope to get the message through
To interrupt your plan
You walk around with your nose
In the air looking down on me
You walk around conceited
Thinking you is better than me

Your hopes and your dreams 
Are no better than mine
You need to hear the truth
And from where I stand its time
You wear red rose lip stick
Finest perfume money can buy
Everything you stand for
Isn't anything but a lie

 You say God answer your prayers
Because you know how to pray
You know how to move God
With the correct words to say
To me my sister; it sounds
Like you got a lot of issues
This whole statement about God
You got the wrong picture
There is no respect of person
In God’s sight or in his mind
He loves all his children
All the same, and all the time

You think the world revolves
Around how you want it to be
And the self-centered person you are
You can’t and will not see
It’s all about God, and
What he wants us to do
It’s not about long prayers
And it’s not about you

You think that your riches
Makes you special in this world
It’s not worth a dime
If you don’t have God’s love
Your gold necklace
 And diamond ring
Will not score brownie
 Points with God
And your high heel shoes
 Is not worth
Anything with a 
Conceited concrete heart

I thought it was time
To set the record straight
You can’t get through to God
When your heart is fill with hate
So think about this; and 
What it takes to be true
Today you get the lecture
And remember its 
Not about you

    Thank you so much Debra. I don't like it when fingers are pointed. We all are human and subject to mistakes, and the good part about it is the fact that God love all of us. Thank you so much for stopping by.

    Thanks Robert. Happy that you stop by tonight. Sometimes I can't understand why some people think that the world revolves around them and that God only answers prayers to those that know how to pray. We all have a lot to learn when it comes down to God. May God bless you dear sweet Robert!
