SUCH IS LIFE

they tried to destroy my whole being. my oppressors were far stronger then me.
they torture me as a child, yes i was only twelve-years olded, but a young lion cub
who's mother was brutally gunned down by mobsters and villans.

yes, i was left for the fouls of the earth to ravish my torned being.  yet, there was a power 
so 
great amd massive that i was taken to a horrendous place to wax in strength and wisdom.  i 
was place in a haven of jackels, knaves, scoundrels, murder, and thieves roamed freely. i 
was'nt tainted by such ruthlessness, because i was a proper child of the Living God.

yet i did behold the tragic acts of cruelty and deeds of viciousness, but it stayed from my 
being.  often times i question He who created all things, as to why was i expose to such evil 
andwhy was i robbed of my nest as a child.,

He merely embraced me and told me that i had to teach, encourage, be a witness of His un-
conditional love, mercies, and grace.  as the river of jordan streamed from my tiny marble 
twin pearl brown-eyes, His kissed me and told me that this too will pass my beloveth son.

now i am this mighty, but gentle Lion Of Judah that has all might and power at my beckening
call if need be. i have learned the patience of life in order that life can be preserved for those
who have travel the valley as i did. we have overcome in order that those who have yet to be
born into this life of deception, treachery, and greed, will know that they have a purpose and 
will be protected from the ills of the blindness and folly of irresponsible beingss that do 
partake of the breath of life with no regard for life.  yes, even those we must forgive and not
be as they are. i suffered and i overcame.  such is life, as my friend once said.
