My Salvation

My Salvation My life ws headed nowhere fast on a road to my destruction Everything I had was tken from me I was left with completely nothing The little hope I had for a future vanished from my aching head Finally I came to a conclusion just wishing I was dead "I can't take anymore!" I cried aloud not expecting anyone to hear That's when a voice like no other said "My dear child I am near." "Who's speaking to me?" I questioned the voice out of a pure ignorance. "I am the Lord Almighty. Their is no other like me of any significance. I created the heavens and the earth and everything that dwells on them. If you believe these words I speak and that I sacrificed my one and only Son I will renew your strength, and you shall soar on wings as an eagle and be My chosen one." Then I said "Lord I believe. Please come into my heart." And instantly His spirit rested upon me. And I was pulled from the dark. I now had every reason to go on living. For I am God's creation. Accepting His gift which cannot be bought My Salvation John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Between Me And You

Between Me & You Don't misunderstand me Don't be misconstrued I'm cool, calm and collective in everything I say and do I fear no man but God look into my eyes And see for yourself If that's true or if it's a lie 1 thing's for certain 2 thing's for sure Many have risen Many are no more Some with the cruelest intentions have even swung the ax A few dabbled in dark dimensions to use magic that's black And we all know about that what you send out comes back You reap what you sow that's a biblical fact I'm just real talk 'n' You 'ain't' got to listen But like vitamins to the body these principals are essential for long live 'n' You're no better than me I'm no better than you I was once blind but now I see too Such knowledge draws a line of separation between a wise man and a fool But shhh keep this on the low Between Me & You

As My Life Goes On

As My Life Goes On The past is gaining on me There's nowhere else to go I'm tired of running Ready or not it's time to face my foes The ghosts the demons the skeletons the scheming The lies the deceit I was young and dumb I kept it all discreet But Now I see the joke's on me Yet but one regret sleeping with the enemy My lust got me snared Bewitched and bound in Jezebel's lair Who will laugh last? What will become of me? Soon enough I'll see as my life goes on As My Life Goes On I’m not fishing for pity just to set the record straight. I stand a man on his own two accountable for my mistakes But all the drama has taken its toll The trauma has savaged my psychological To the point of no return? Highly probable. Yet only Heaven knows which way the wind will blow So my lonely soul searches for a remedy “Lord Remember me.“ At the resurrection… but until then and as you can see Somehow my life goes on As My Life Goes On What’s left for me to live for my baby’s gone Yet you say, “For me you’ll pray, You're sorry for my lost. And I will be ok. God will keep me strong…. Time will heal the pain as my life goes on." But you don’t know the half nor have the faintest clue. First cache 22 Then tell me how you made it through. I’ll be waiting on you As my life goes on. As my life goes on But first peep this verse. Things get worse. Pay close attention. Dodge that hearse. Don’t die cursed. Take heed to your intuition's premonitions. Before I drifted the shadow shifted From the valley to my alley Death had orchestrated a premeditated grand finale To my surprise It paid me a visit I was bound, mute and defenseless Laying on my back and looking up Thinking "What the fuss? I can’t breathe! But I can’t leave! How can this be? I thought the curse was lifted! At the congregation’s litigation I took a plea - to avoid the maximum I was surely facing. I rejoiced and gave praise with my hands lifted! I believed it, and thought I received it!" But what went wrong that I would write this song About the events ahead that soon would come When all was said and done it was the epitome of irony. My hands were still lifted. “Please don’t shoot me!" "You have the right to remain silent". E T C. “What’s going on? Why am I here? What’s up with all the guns? Why are you arresting me?” The flashing lights the 9 mms the nosey neighbors the sirens End of story faded glory slowly all went dim but it‘s been almost ten. And as you can see my life goes on

Awestruck

Normally it is I who astounds But this time around It is I taken aback by the grace that abounds From her crown to the very ground The radiance was so bright If she was in my life 3 words no more nights Awe shucks I think I'm awestruck

Last Night I Cried

LAST NIGHT I CRIED Last night I cried because I missed you so much I can’t recall the times I whispered your name before the tears dried up I just felt like sometimes you don’t realize how much I care And how bad it hurts inside because I’m not there There’s so much love I have for you, and I often get scared That you’ll get tired of waiting and go elsewhere Meanwhile - I grab a tissue, wipe my eyes and regain my pride Before someone finds out Last Night I Cried. for CR

Unreality

Unreality Am I alive or am I dreaming sometimes I just can’t tell If this is a dream pinch me quickly and awake me form this hell. If I’m awake give me something to make my eye’s dreary That I may rest peaceably while the storm rages on in its fury Am I Alive or am I dreaming And how can one tell When logic has lost meaning and reality as well When tragedy strikes near your tent and family and friends mourn A loved one has passed and you appear not torn. You’ve become nonchalant by default frozen in a subconscious state Only a numb soul remains once reality’s escaped Am I alive, or am I dreaming or am I dreaming that I’m alive For what it’s worth perhaps your answers could help reverse This cycle of my demise
