Live Your Words

A great poet can only be a great man 
If words written are words lived on

What matters most is how we live
Not so much what words we give

Go ahead and speak partial truth
Lies fixed to give wolf wolf root

Tell me you were seduced...maybe
That you were raped….I can’t see

Speak of God with clean heart and hands
Or your soul is not worth quick sands
