Does the past really matter?
Does it set you free?
I’m absorbed in the sin,
That is surrounding him and me.
Lost in the curiosity,
Cold to the touch.
Drenched in the poison,
With my dignity in his clutch.
Feeling like I was cheated;
I chose the evil instead of light.
I traded in the sunshine,
For what lurks in the night.
I disobeyed his orders,
I gave up security to be unsure.
I went against the warnings,
Gave into darkness instead of remaining pure.
Once my bed was made of soft grass,
But now it is made of stone.
Was plump from all of the luscious fruit,
Now I’m starving to the bone.
My curse is one of circumstance.
The punishment a crime,
I’m stuck inside this dampened cave,
For the rest of time.
My world came crashing down,
The grief has not subsided.
My heart broke completely,
When my sons collided.
My misery a token,
From the abandonment I earned.
Upon the time spent in sorrow,
There was a lesson to be learned.
Have I found the moral?
Only in time we shall see,
For all I did was eat an apple-
From the Knowledge tree.

What is it like, when no one can see the roses blooming in your heart When no one
understands you When you are two worlds apart When everything you say they take the
opposite way Saying that you are evil That you are a menace to their day What is it like
when you continue to pray then nothing but evil comes your way Trying to go forward to
achieve yet constantly being hindered by traps and schemes So called friends taking away
their laughter and hugs When you call on the name of Jesus, they say you are on bad
drugs Being misunderstood happens all the time Darkness seems to be clouding your
sunshine Rejection seems to be the cause of much pain What is it like when their love
turns vain Sometimes it feels like i could of would of should That's what it's like to be

Time moves on not heeding the cost.
Hurt buried aside in the ditch.
Anger flares like a flip of the switch.
Wrenching blood from within.
Fingers pawing at the line of life,
White with streaks of red pressed flesh.
Ghost pepper strongly inhaled,
Nose like a waterfall over the lips.
Eyes clenched as tears meet sweat of the brow.
Foot tapping unceasingly faster,
Knee and leg exaggerating the attack.
Yoke across shoulders crunching bones.
Arms crossed, torso giving to gravity.
Pores gushing both hot and cold.
Mind races with head pivoting,
Circular on it's axle.
Soul? The soul dancing??? How cruel...
Mouth ajar in disbelief.
Tongue scratching to arise from it's lair.
The beat of the soul continues...
Gut set to purge.
Soul keeps dancing...
Heart, mind and gut can't hear the rhythm.
Body jolts in knee-jerk spasms.
Face curls in anger,
Nose crunches cheeks,
Upper lip cliffs out over teeth,
Brow furrows, slanted cynically.
Mind perks up seeking to undermine...
Logic with misdirection lined.
All except the soul act as one.
The body relaxes, the masquerade begun.
"Nothing ever did transpire,
There is no real reason for this angst and mire."
Lungs breath a sigh of relief,
Heart makes off in the night like a thief.
Outward appearance turns abruptly calm.
The soul leaps up, raising an outward palm...
"Stop this at once! We've done this before!
Leading only to hunger, depression, and gore."
Soul connected to the source of life,
Reaches through the smoke of daunting strife.
Louder and louder the truth is yelled,
Mind, gut, heart and body remain uncompelled.
Suddenly, a piercing touch from without,
Skewers the essence of each with doubt...
The soul is a right a truth must break,
A two way mirror reflecting a fake.
The mind is steadfast not willing to commit.
The heart is frozen as opposed to lit.
The gut uneasy in volcanic burn.
Body's composure lost in a violent turn.
The soul is heard, the unforgiven must cave,
History includes a pain never forgave.
Voice it aloud all five parts of being proclaim...
"Release, us at once, from this torture and maim!"

Overcoming Evil With Good...
"Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good."
This verse from scripture
is often misunderstood.
Many tend to "get back" at someone
who's "wronged them."
Whether it be from a stranger... or even a friend.
You cannot fight evil with evil--
this isn't God's plan!
His concept of love and mercy-- you
need to understand.
Remember the words Jesus said in the beatitudes.
Perhaps this can stop any
You were called to be holy--
with Godliness in mind.
To be filled with his mercy...
being gentle and kind.
Rise above whatever evil
may come your way/
Overcome by doing this with
God's goodness... today!
Allow the cross of Christ to be
lifted up in your life.
Allow his spirit to remove all malice,
bitterness and strife.
A compassionate and loving person
in you... others will see!
What you do today--will impact your eternity!
An overcomer of evil is often
difficult to do.
Obey and trust God--
He will see you through!

We’re Just Sinful Human Beings!
All of us are just sinful human beings!
Scripture says; “the heart is sinful above everything!”
Even if we try to hide and wash our sins away…
Wickedness in our heart, is there, each day!
God made Adam and Eve, with perfection!
But sin crept in, like a deep and wicked infection!
He put them in the Garden of Eden with a choice.
It was up to them to listen to his voice.
They had all they could want, with one instruction.
Disobeying this, would lead to their destruction.
Satan took the form of a snake to tempt their mind.
And their disobedience affected all of mankind!
Since that time, mankind has needed atonement!
Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse you! This very moment!
Only his blood can wash away sin’s dark stain!
It can only be found when one calls on Jesus’ name!
We’ve all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory!
But wait! This doesn’t have to be the end of the story!
God and all of his angels in heaven, are waiting for YOU!
The love and blood of Jesus,
can make you BRAND NEW!
His love, for our sins, is what he offers in exchange!
You can be forgiven! And forever totally changed!
This opportunity is for you, to reach out and take!
Won’t you do it now? For eternity’s sake???

There’s so much wickedness and evil that abounds.
Where in this world can the righteous be found?
On account of a righteousness man, this world was saved.
Because of Noah following God, a way of safety was “paved.”
On account of Lot’s righteousness, his family was spared
Because of Abrahams request… God listened and cared.
Because of the righteousness of Jesus, we can live.
His life for our unworthy life, is what he freely gives!
Because of his righteousness , we have hope within!
Through the blood of Christ, we can be born again!
I need the righteousness of God to fill me inside.
I need his grace to remove all bitterness and pride!
I need the holiness of Christ to wash me clean!
He is my righteousness! My everything!
The beauty and glory of God… Nothing can compare!
The heavens declare his righteousness everywhere.
May the righteous words of God, in me, be “implanted.”
May I not take the wonderful grace of God for granted.
Thank you my Lord, for the work you want to do.
Please help me each day, to be more like YOU!
God’s ways are awesome,
and his beauty is displayed!
Through Jesus Christ…
A way to heaven has been made!

America, once free and strong,
you now are weak and it won't be long,
before you crumble from within,
unless you turn from grievous sin.
Lord, save this nation, make it great again.
God has been banished from our schools,
while society creates its own rules.
What's right is wrong, what's wrong is right,
and Satan is laughing with delight.
Lord, save this nation from its plight.
Corrupt leaders are in control.
They have no heart, they have no soul.
Our freedoms they're trying to steal away,
and we, like lambs, are led astray.
Lord, save this nation is what I pray.
Hatred and violence are on the rise.
Terrorists are plotting our demise.
Natural disasters have multiplied.
We need the Savior on our side.
Lord, save this nation from foolish pride.
God's word is clear, we must repent,
and turn away from evil intent.
We must embrace our Savior, Jesus,
then God will grant us favor and forgive us.
Lord, save this nation and restore us.
II Chronicles 7:14 "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

A Very Inviting Temptation!
I remember of a particular situation.
I was offered a very "inviting" temptation.
The situation I was in... I didn't belong!
And lost any sense of "right and wrong."
At first... I felt no guilt or shame.
And brought embarrassment
to my family's name.
I tried to explain this to my wife and kids.
I heard; "Dad... please... no more fibs!"
The Godly principles were "tossed to the side,"
As the sin inside caused arrogance and pride.
Soon, all in my life that truly mattered...
Was gone! My life was empty and shattered!
I was sorry for all of the problems I caused!
This time... I took a moment to pause.
I cried to God to rescue me from my sin.
I confessed! Would God help me once again?
I read in the Bible of Jesus’ grace and love!
This time the help I needed had to come from above!
I asked him for a fresh and brand new start.
He removed the stain from a broken heart.
He restored to me the joy I once had.
I'm so blessed! Jesus has made me glad!
Jesus is the reason I'm here today!
I LOVE HIM more than words can say!

Oh how frail is the life of mortals
Look at how our tongue treasures the taste of food
Without oxygen we die
We live only, but for a season
I've seen demagogues rising and falling
History hasn't been fair to their very great powers
In our virtues, our pride light our vices
What an emptiness life's possessions can turn
See how our desires hook us like fish bones
Into doom we gleam depressed
Until we see our fragility as mortals
True repentance is just but a dream
I've seen the Light I believe
The truth of God who lived as man
His sacrifice made me free but priceless
To give life in eternity to those who believe

I feel as though she may never change,
Never give good a chance.
I feel as though we play a game?
One I've played in the past.
I swear her eyes tell me no lies,
I think they all are wrong.
Yes, if she feigns at least a try...
Behind her I'll stay strong.
Until the day she overcomes,
Her past and her evil deeds,
I'm patiently standing all alone,
And often she'll stand with me.

I wake up with another tear
for I have again, relived the nightmare
will it ever leave me with any way to see
when will I again be able to see my family
the past is forgiven
so why is it still living
my heart was so broken
but soon after it was frozen
let it lie and the past die
for I have a life to live with
but the past is still being relived
how do I stop this past of torture
so I can find my new future

I tried to write about love but I haven’t felt it.
I tried to write about the sea but I’ve never seen it.
Then I tried to write about the air, but I have never breathed it.
I tried to write about magic but I never believed it.
I couldn’t write about god, all I have ever done is sinned.
And when I tried to write about life I found,
I have never really lived.

Sitting alone here,
all by myself,
looking at a reflection that I do not recall.
I see a face looking back at me,
but not my twin,
no I see a pale face,
I see jealously, pain, sorrow, and a frown
I see all the negative.
I see fear,
I see nothing.
I am sitting alone,
in my room
white walls surround me.
I hear the trains blow their horns off in the distance,
and the cars and trucks roaring down the lonesome highways.
I can even the crying and wailing of sirens
blazing down the avenues,
"Where is the fire, folks!?"
The wind blows through my window,
moving the blinds back and forth,
and I sit there alone,
smiling and singing a little.
Sitting there alone,
peaceful and tired
wanting to rest my head,
but scared too face the nightmares.
Too hear the voices of the dead
call out my name.
And I sit there alone
thinking of what once was,
beauty and harmony nomore
in my trial of certainty.

Is it possible, in times like these,
To fight off such adversity and selfishness
And to save other souls that you owe not to?
Gaze into these pain-filled eyes,
Contemplate their crushing calumny
And see why I must depart from you
Look at the flaws,
See through the glass that mirrors delight,
And tell me at last, that it is my fight
Just as it is yours
And in those depths that I must wander,
I know it must be I who sees it
As the first blast conquers fearful firsts,
I will awaken my senses to the terrors beheld
And see at once the damage that lies await
I see the creatures of my consciousness
Crawl into the dark trenches,
They want to survive just as badly as I do,
Yes, demons I see,
With hidden motives, cruel intentions,
And black surprises, nodding their heads
In an apprehension to each loss
They wait on my defeat
And jump in when I am down
I see now why I have let them in—
So I may justify my sins with their inglorious fabrications
I see what I am
And I must prepare to outlive the ugly
How is it conceivable to you,
That such gaseous fires have blinded me for so long,
And yet I have done little to nothing to extinguish it?
How can you possibly understand what I am up against?
What weapon do I choose against the spiritual forces,
That wrought these tortures to my wayward mind?
I touch and I trace the darkness,
Like a child holds the edge of a tombstone
In its little-differenced hand,
Can I change what has never failed to grow?
Can I destroy a bloom destined to flourish?
Or do I die with what I deemed achievable?
My innards burn from the silent blasts within
My lips quiver as I rise from impossible despondency
I aim for my own heart,
And hope for a moment that all shall end
The cracks of the bones,
The crash of dueling bodies,
The spilling of determined sweat,
The promise of death
And the hope for restoration
Push me up upon my purpose
As the demons emerge from the depths,
Scattering the sopping fields of woe
I feel the earth below me,
And see the tip of my nose from above,
Sorrow streaming along the sides of my cheeks
With tears and trepidation,
My beating heart knows the rhythm of my awareness,
My mind knows what troubles it must collect,
And to the heavens I let seep words unsung,
Poetry unmanaged, unmetered and unstrung
I delve into the source of my pains
And tell the truth where the lies have fallen short
I declare my guileful iniquities,
The evils that my nature endorsed
I spoke of the murders I have committed,
Of the insipid hate that allowed access
To my sensitive soul's hidden desires
I praised creation and its perfection,
Noting my perspective of self-worthlessness
I admitted to my acts of immorality,
Depravity, and dishonesty
And lastly, I sorrowed over the knowledge I have shunned
Sobbed at the light I let slip…
From above I saw my frame,
How it genuinely shrunk, as my sorrowful head sunk
As my knees crumbled, meeting the bloodied soil
I had fought the despair with truth and honesty
And the light returned to my eyes
And the heavy fogs of my mind cleared
So that my heart knew what needed to be done
The booming fits of blood have stirred me
Into an action I have only dreamt
Now rest Your eyes on me now,
When I have come to know that the fight is not my own
It is Ours, and mine and Yours
The true battle lies within Our human souls
And calls for infinite glory to embark
See that we have acknowledged our faults
See that we have repented before the scene
And see that we will change
That we will not fight blindly among demons and darkness
But that we will battle alongside truth
See that we must return to You as new men
The blessings that love and peace orchestrate

You think you’ve gone just far enough,
I could smile knowing you’ve gone far enough that you can’t go back again
You think you were careful but,
I’ve caught a glimpse of your true, wretched form
You think you can find a way into my good graces
I’ve seen what you are, monsters with a friendly costume
You can’t deceive me anymore and, I don’t consort with serpents
You think I’m a game to be played but, trust me, you could never win
Don’t underestimate me
You think I’m a joke but, trust me you won’t be laughing
You think I’m just talking myself up but, trust me, you’re the ones going down
My eyes took too long to adjust
Better late than never
It may take a monster to know one but, I promise my teeth are sharper than yours
My first reaction to the hideous revelation that was your form was to weep
Fall to my knees, maybe even wretch my heart from my chest and onto the carpet
Then I thought about the mess it would make
I decided the only blood that will spill, will be your own
I was not weak, but I had a weakness
A heart of soft gold stitched to my sleeve with care
Now my heart is a stone so heavy
I could kill at least two birds at once
Being the nice guy is a thing of the past
Thanks for freeing me of that softness
You thought I was all sunshine and delicate things
When really I had just been swallowing razor blades
Now that sun is setting and I hope you see it was you who were wrong
Can you feel my darkness coming, because it’s eager to hold you
If you thought I was the one who would just stand still or turn to run
Your gonna be the one with tired feet
I’m not sad anymore
Just sick with the plague of your lies
Contagious, and I’m looking for someone to kiss
Even angels can make themselves wicked
When we do, we take no prisoners
Still think I’m a game
This one is just beginning

I Knew Someone Who Was Ready to “End It All!”
I knew of someone who just wanted “to end it.”
Giving up on life, and did not want to “defend it.”
It was a heart wrenching and difficult situation.
He said what he wanted to, with no explanation!
I could see his face and the sad look in his eyes!
What he was going to do next, was anyone’s surprise.
He turned to drugs and encountered addictions.
With this brought much disease and afflictions!
He gave up on the wonderful family that was given.
And turned to a pretty wild and crazy way of livin’!
I told him about a God who loves him very deeply.
As he listened, he began to grow restless and weary.
I reached for his hand and began to pray for God’s power!
It was a miracle! The blood of Jesus changed him that hour!
The spirit of God brought healing and hope to his body!
He was so excited! He rushed out to tell everybody!
The “end” that he wanted, seemed to just fade away!
For the son of the living God, changed him this day!
The glory of God, and the power of Jesus’ resurrection…
Changed him! And got him going in a NEW direction!
He’s so thankful for the blood of Christ’ atonement!
And is a different person now, because of that moment!
This same Jesus loves and can do the same for YOU!
Through the problems of life…
He will see you through!

Children with an illness,
Go through life,
They are looked down apon,
Because they are different,
When really they are not,
They are no different from you and me,
They have the same blood,
Running through their bodies,
Just as their hearts as well,
So, don't just look apon,
Their outer appearance,
And judge them,
For who they really are,
For a lot of them,
Are smarter and brighter,
Than you and I,
Could possibly be,
On our brightest day,
For they have the gifts,
From God up above,
So, always take the time,
To get to know their inner beauty,
For who they really are,
Cause they too need love,
Just as everyone else does,
If not even more.

Do We Have A Godless Socieity???
As our courts strive for “constitutionality…”
Our country’s almost on the brink of “insanity.”
It’s like there’s a darkness that grows each day.
As many of our courts seek to push God away!
In many efforts to remove anything that “offends.”
We’ve driven a nail into God’s heart… Once again!
Without HIS commandments, where does this leave us?
It leaves a very unstable foundation beneath us!
As time goes on, many Americans become afraid…
Anything of God, is often challenged to be displayed!
We don’t need religion, but to have a divine relationship.
We need to read God’s word, and to enjoy HIS fellowship!
I’ll take Jesus! You can have your religious theology!
While this world is filled with so much adultery!
Only the power of Jesus can bring wellness to the mind!
His word is like God’s constitution for all mankind!
I’m not looking for some old document signed by men!
I’m looking for the opportunity to be BORN AGAIN!
Because of Jesus, there’s no man and God separation!
He’s offered to all, his free gift of eternal salvation!
Behold! The son of God who is the king of kings!
He is our righteousness! He is God!
His kingdom is glorious! And is not ruled by men!
We need him brought back to this country, once again!

I did not find myself to be so important
So I ask my friends do I seem distant?
When I ask the question I had received an answer, Yes
So I think that made it clear that I had been not the best
I am a friend of a friend that talks so many things
That friend talks to much it is insane and insanity it brings
I do care, about my friends they are all good people
They tend to stand on their high steeple
Today I find myself not so aware
Disbanding my fear of regret and care
Walking many different paths I see that I have found holes
It is the path that people choose to use to fuel their rage with coals
Coals are partially burnt wood or fossils a piece of fuel
It is the source of burden and fire a rage of emotions that stands cruel
It can be warm and caring, but it also can be baring
I just start to feel so low, below the ground I keep on staring
I reach for my friends so many times I feel so ignorant at times
Just once I feel I should not rely on them when feeling I can not find
I dig my hole deeper and I can not climb out
For some reason I am just full of doubt
I care about so many things and what I have is confusion
One person should be all I should think about to get out of that illusion
My battle in my heart and mind is not at all so pleasant
I feel so alone in an island that is shaped like a crescent
My emotions is like coinciding with a diameter of the semicircle
Not a full emotion that is complete like a circle
My feelings is circular full of incomplete thoughts, so much deeper
I feel it will wake up my evil half a evil soul that is a sleeper
What question should I ask myself? to believe that I am not so alone
As I feel like a person who is deteriorating to the bone
I ask my friends the same question once again
I figure I should do it, to know what kind of feelings I should end
So many thoughts that come out of my feeling
I feel like my friends take, an emotional trauma of stealing
They ask me questions and I answer theirs
But when I need mine answered I feel burning inside like a flare
Are they even friends when they do not take me serious in anyway
Just put me in my hole cause I feel nothing in their will be getting in my way
It's just so simple to answer someones problem
I answer friends with beauty of a rose, but when they answer mine I get the stem
I know the stem is very important in life, with out it how can a rose be a rose
With a hole to put the root and stem in how can it grow
The words we speak I guess is like all natural things we reap and sow

Two tonnes press on my heart,
To me a great load,
A weight that set the world apart
The weight fell and caused a spark and it glowed!
So now I am Different
Free from Imprisonment
Completely set free.
And with this heart set afire
And the weight obliterated
Nothing to hard,or to dire
Because now my worries are exterminated!
But soon one day came a traveling breeze
And put out my brightened flame.
But I blew on it and Said "Please-
The more you try the more my heart stays the same!"

Better look to the lamb
and fall to your knees
for the Reaper
witnesses all that he sees
This fallen angel’s
made a career of evil
the father of sin
this black/red coated devil
He minds over death’s valley
With his hot road to Hell
and with determined temptation
will lure you with his spell
He’ll sit by your shoulder
and by ill thought word or deed
your conscience will torture
and your pained soul shall bleed
This masterful serpent
with fire of unknown origin
whose pit of raging flames
is the prize that you’ll win
So beware of the tongue
and do what is right
stay away from the darkness
and look only to the light

The fox gnaws flaking muscle
From speechless rabbit, cold
In mind and body. Men shiver
As bodies dry, spat from river.
Rings of globes circle hands
Of the thoughtless, so beaten
From paths to be told of Him,
Waiting until eyes grow dim.
Walking among us is plague,
Standing above us is but love,
These winds will claw our youth
While faith entraps this truth.
Winter comes but we survive,
Breath and bones, colonies thrive.

My Lord gave me feeling
My Lord come to my healing
Should have never looked down
Should have never made that loud of a sound
But when you see your shadow as darkness
And dropping your heart was something you missed
You get a little scared
With your darker emotions you are pair
My Lord gave me forgiveness
Where to find it is my only wish
I knew hurt would make me hide
But I never knew it would take my pride
Darker and darker every night
Lesser and lesser there is light
I find myself each day with more and more sin
Ever since the downfall of men
Lord you’re my rescue
And only you
But Lord give me time
We both know I’m not doing fine
My Lord gave me feet
That stumbled and burned on my sin’s heat
Lord did you get my prayer
I don’t know cause to the blank clouds I stare
But through it all I know you hear my voice
Cause on that cross that vinegar was moist
God I think any day I could be better
I have your redemption letter
I just have to find it
But each day is harder cause I take a new hit
So I’m tired and is giving up on this searching is something I can try
Lord Is my sourness making your love dry
On my broken bed next to sin I cry
Lord next to me you lay down and lie
My guilt cleared when I saw the compassion in your eyes
I had a moment and It hit me
Lord you put a whisper on me
With my eyes closed I could still see
That with one sound you can set my free
Holy spirit moved
And so quickly hurt was removed
Lord I know you’re the only one I need
My Lord rumbles clouds
My Lord makes the thunder sound
But there is a dark street
Cluster with people who are weak
Demons in their minds
Demons guiding them from behind
My Lord gave me new sight
Reason to what is right
All these people wandering around
On the inside falling down
I cannot cure their struggle
In their lives I cannot meddle
My Lord let me do something
I once felt their sting
But time and time again
I go down the wrong street and meet sin
I know I’m not perfect
But what makes me different form them is I know you think I’m worth it
My Lord loves me
He’s all I need
Through it all I still fight
Fight through the darkest nights
Through it all I still want to help my friends
But their lives I can’t tend
My Lord had blood shed
My Lord choose the color red
To his home I am lead

The storm is coming, the wise say.....
I blink in moments of reminiscing the pleasure, but it came with pain.
Choices are never easy if making love wasn’t for the right reasons.
I mean I didn’t love her I just lusted for her; big curvaceous thighs, apple type ass and her luscious breasts, simply cause she portrayed the image of the video vixens.
I swear, my mother taught me be cautious but
Put the vodka in the juice and mix it all up, and you
Get one hell of a night, to remember.
In which make the next day a blessing to wake up hung-over.
I mean I’m young and stupidity is the only definition to explain why we do, what we do as youth.
I could have stayed in doors and studied for my math test on Monday.
But we live with Friday, being the day to chill the ice cube of stress, so I jumped in the car with the fellas, and headed to Tammy’s party.
I was drunk before I got there and I was out of my conscious mind while I was there....
So she was interested in me and I was interested in making another moment to remember.
So I write this letter to you, with deep remorse as I say..
I never loved your mother; and I wasn’t ready to be your father, if time then was now,
I swear I would have never agreed to kill you,
I wish my actions don’t tell a tale of who I am.
Cause I always dreamt to have a child... being there every moment,
When its born, being the arms it cries in, arms which comfort it, be the hand which hold the spoon to feed it, be there when it takes its first steps, clothed it, bath it, experience things like
Taking it to school, making lunch, have conversations, laughs, moments of enlightenments, moments of frustrations, moments of father to child talks, seeing all sporting games, or being at every award show, taking pictures, ice cream moments, walks in the park.
Do all the things with my child that my father never did.
But I’m fatherless plus I was young and stupid.... although that’s no excuse
I’m sorry again for agreeing to your murder.
I’m imprisoned in guilt for life.

God knows why we really need him!
He has put the enemy beneath him!
He knows that without him, we shall fail!
We’re like the blind following life’s trail!
He also knows, that his son bled and died…
That day on the cross, he was crucified!
He knows that his son arose from the dead!
He’s alive now! And is our daily bread!
Do you know how much God loves you?
How much he wants fellowship with you?
Do you even think about for just one moment..
Of Christ’ love? And his blood’s atonement?
He did all of this with one purpose in mind.
To offer his salvation to all of mankind!
No matter what you may say,
or think of him…
It’s all of us, that need him!
Won’t you join with me,
before God, in prayer?
Wherever we are…
He’s already there!
Won’t you join with me, and receive him in?
To cleanse us, and take away our sin?
Won’t you begin today? And feel his power?
You can be a new person! This very hour!

Gods brought me here to you innocent and pure
I fell out of the clouds for your love I felt I could endure
Even with a demons eye, loneliness isn't the cure
I felt as I could go on with your love changing with every turn
Escaping each time that I cried out for your love the demons made it burn
And God brought me someone with whom brought the crash of our love up to the curb
Well I am back out on the street with tears in my eyes
Left on both feet but the demons have said their goodbyes
With blood curdling screams and dirt filled sighs
I can't go on being discrete with love filled skies
With every new person that I meet I have to decide
If it all was worth the fight I don't want to go on with out you
Here or there in my life, so I am back in the street
All filled with love forgiven was last week honey
Today it's star kissed lives, the Demons we meet
Drifting on wardly lost in life

Guard Your Eyes!
Have you been captured
the temptations of your eyes?
Things you once held as true and
wholesome… You now despise?
Have you been “captured”
by an outward beauty?
Thereby neglecting your
Has your life been consumed with
sin's all-consuming fire?
With an uncontrollable appetite
and an lustful desire?
In your heart, is the Holy Spirit
an uninvited guest?
No wonder your life is turning
into such a mess!
Your head is filled with fantasies
and temptations of every kind.
You pretend on the outside. But you've
lost control of your mind.
For your sin, you’ve only yourself to blame.
Now's the time to repent!
And call on Jesus' name!
Though your sins black…
They can white as snow!
Only Jesus can be true peace and
satisfaction to your soul!

please forgive me
i've done a number of terrible things
if i had to list the worst (best) things i've done, i would always start with the burnt frog. one time, on a camping trip, a couple of my friends threw a frog into the campfire and laughed as he melted. i didn't like it, so later that night i took a few cans of baked beans and emptied them into all of their bags. sh*t was f*ck*ng gross. i showed those barbaric *ssh*l*s.
i've also lied to every homeless person i've ever met, telling them i'll be back in two hours when i get off work and get paid and if they wait right there i'll hook them up with a hot meal and a pack of smokes and a couple extra bucks just to have for his pocket and they always look like deer in f*ck*ng headlights, dumbfounded that anyone would do that for them. i try to remember to drive by and see if they're waiting, and i swear to sh*t they always are. must be something in my voice that lets them know i'm for real. legit. a good person. they can just tell.
i've lied to most of my friends and lovers about being a vegetarian, pothead, christian, atheist, lied about being in love, lied about enjoying films, novels, musicians and artists. i've lied about my background, my family, my living situation, my education. i lie about these things on a daily basis. if i encounter a difficulty in an interpersonal relationship, my first thought is 'could a lie fix it?'
and it always does.
but, usually, it's just for fun
i f*ck*d some sl*t from college the week before graduation, told her i loved her, made plans to meet her family, went on a picnic, then got on the plane home, deleted her number and never spoke to her again
it was great
there's plenty more, but that's a start.
know what the coolest part is?
i don't even feel bad about any of it
i'm only telling you because you've got your tentacles wrapped pretty tight around my leg
and you're stroking my scrotum with something cold
But enough about me...
whatever you're going to do, just go ahead and do it
i'll like it

I do not know?
The candles burn their prayers to the heavens
from the cold walls of the house of God
The rain pounds at the earth beyond
and someone runs upon the mud
His rosary swings
in his desperate hands
His prayers are earnest
He mutters fast
"Listen to me, Lord, and answer me,
for I am helpless and weak.
Save me from death, because I am loyal to you;
save me, for I am your servant and I trust in you-”
His feet lose their grip
on the sodden ground
Dread thumps at his heart
the prayer dies in his mouth
He gasps in his panic
as the monsters gain
He gets up from the floor
and cries out in pain
Teeth in his flesh
His Achilles heel
They tear at the muscle
His final appeal
“Help me"! He screams
as they tear at the meat
He kicks at their jaws
and he is back on his feet
The candles flicker
as the doors swing wide
They slam to a close
and he runs inside
Up to the alter
he falls to his knees
The growls grow louder
“Lord, Help me, please”!
The hounds are trapped
yonder bless’d stone
but they howl at the door
for the man they are owed
He raises his arms
His ultimate plea
up to his saviour
with blood on his sleeves
Please, they are coming for me!
Forgive me, my Father,
That I wanted to leave”.
His face is pale with the shine of death
He begs his Father to forgive his sin
His veins are torn
His soul bereft
“Lord, please forgive me, don’t let them in”.
The candles go out
With one gust of wind
The doors slowly open
and the hellhounds come in.
