I have been making ammendments this morning just after posting 12 2 2017  10'30 am  excuses for

any changes in the text, as I was copying from my handwritten notes  ..'

Clean cut; people clean cut.! Well styled suits, groomed to impress we gel well in success, success reads so well.. Glitz is the goal WOW the 'surface' the substance.' Cut so clean.' free standing see you all & now; how i'll stand not bow.. Yet my whole truth? there's another side too, so today oyay.. Oyay.' When I knew I'd been cut.! I felt the keen, clean cut after I saw blood Felt its wet slick flow.' the air hit me cold then I felt the blades touch..! I slipped into the gutter, feeling shock in the fog; a fog of de'je-vue How was made that clean cut.! Cutting away my humanity; tearing up the deal struck with me, going to a better source its just a buisness of course.! So back to the stage, to a new charge who'll be groomed.' To the clean cut scene, and sin.. What then its purpose? & Is it always to subvert us? I take note of its action, can I repel its attraction? it starts blunt as a weapon that over time starts to sharpen, with indifference it hardens, reminds me of bad times, of my ancestors whoredom; drudgery worldly serfdom' of the chains I am wearing, the pain deeply tearing pushes me deep into drown Become aware of the driver; satan the conniver who through this whole gamut, is 'himself' just a marker a 'pawn' shades of darker, whom you will use should it please you, if you want to show us who's who.' So when we sop ourseleves deep in.. In the oceons of a worlds sin, we will be turned to our insides? will we tire before we expire? fed up to our backteeth of sin & its mis-chief.? become ready for redemption; Clean cut from the marle of the mire Cut from the cords for the fire, when sin has outworn us before death 'is' to call us, of one thing be certain, Jesus rent that great curtain.. Faithful & True He beat down deaths sting, so forget now your mis-givings to call on Jesus the mighty, call out now contritely.. From the the heart of the humble, from a soul that has stumbled, become 'in Him' to rightness one more spark in His brightness.'

wow, Joe a very different take on "cut loose" from what I recall of the Footloose movie using that term! Good work, my friend.
