Prepare My Heart

Written by: Richard Bates

Verse 1
A movie taught me my calling
fiction brought angels thru cinema
climax's rise by acts falling
confusion's release thru a spiritual enema

Banging sounds can hurt the ear
its music carousing the purpose of pain
composing strength spawned by your fear
loud mad pestering aches essemble the sane

Chorus
Now, my greatest wish is for my best
to be what it takes to really try
for my strongest effort to manifest
life of what holds me back won't die

Verse 2
Now, its very clear what I need to do
but many long pauses formed hesitation
the wavering breeds delay of all new
fathering the burden of action's frustration

annuling growth, thus increasing the wait
patterns discouragement, casting doubt
of my ability to answer my fate
so I get lazy and begin to cop out

Chorus
Now, my greatest wish is for my best
to be what it takes to really try
for my strongest effort to manifest
life of what holds me back won't die

Reprise
I see how you try I know
champions reap what only training will sow
I won't cultivate how I need to grow
I won't prepare my heart for the go

Verse 3
Im lleft to my prayer to be willing
I feel the peace of God as he gives me strength
to activate self with His filling
to live my dreams and survive wait's length
