Resurrection of a sinner
"Resurrection of a sinner! "
I was lost in the streets, gave in to a life of lawlessness. Governed by cigarettes and booze.
Chasing after dirty skirts and lethal injections so lethargic they caused a time skip that made me miss out on the important stuff like mama's birthday, no hooray!
Woke up in a mortuary with no obituary late in January this got me worried.
The voices in my celeberum amplified to a point of sezing, sneezing and reaping the bad seeds l sowed.
I owed it to thy self to stand up, dust myself up and find myself.
Liquefied my demons and flushed them down the river Jordan for salvation.
Took papa's advice and turned my books and hooks into tools of success.
The Bible became my best friend, traded my pipe for a hymn of Psalms in order to see the light and never allow darkness to blind me again.
Meditating each and every time the serpent tries to tempt me, forever thankful to the Alpha and Omega through Jesus Christ for untying the rope that threatened to obliterate me.
Now l see my face on billboards, magazines, newspapers and all forms of media people crave to digest, my life now an inspiration for all.
Christ lionized my talents for flying ads so all can hear about his glory and power...
