JUDGE ME NOT

I will not hide behind a degree!
I will not curl up behind a label!
I will not waiver in my faith
I will trust him, remain calm and stable
I will not drown my sorrows in wine
I will not escape my pain in cocaine lines
I will not get lost in my TV.
But i will be free and just be me
I will radiate with joy
I will respond to negativity with love and coy
I will break these prison walls
If you get short with me
I shall remain tall.
I will not give you any of my power
I will not give you my kindness to devour
I will not allow this treason
I will love you for no reason
I will rise above this doubt
I will have courage and just come out
I will move forward and keep going
There is now way that i will stop
If i have to crawl, squeal, kneel or hop
I will live
I shall not die
I will rise above
And kiss the sky

9-1-1

I'M TRYING TO WALK ON WATER
BUT I CAN FEEL A STORM RISING
I CAN SEE THE SAVIOUR ON THE WATER SMILING 
BUT I DOUBT HIM AND START CRYING
HE SAID KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME
AND JUST KEEP ON SEEKING
I GET SO DISTRACTED
START PANICKING
AND BEGIN SINKING
HOW DID SHAME MAKE IT'S WAY INTO MY MIND?
HOW DID I ALLOW SHAME AND FEAR TO DOMINATE MY TIME?
HOW DID THIS IDENTITY MAKE ITS WAY INTO MY SOUL?
ALL OF MY PRIDE AND DIGNITY
SATAN STRATEGICALLY STOLE
NOW I'M BENEATH THE SURFACE
TRYING TO RISE UP FOR AIR
PEOPLE PASS  ME BY 
AND THEY SEEM FREE
AND TO ME IT'S JUST NOT FAIR
THEN JESUS BOLDLY SPOKE TO ME AND SAID DO NOT DARE COMPARE!
THE ONLY TIME THAT YOU DARE DROWN
IS WHEN YOU ACT LIKE I'M NOT THERE
AFTER HE SPOKE THAT TO ME
I WAS IN PEACE
AND MADE THIS CONCLUSION
THAT ALL OF MY FEARS
AND UNMERITED SHAME
IS REALLY JUST AN OPTICAL ILLUSION
BUT JESUS CAME AND WARNED ME THAT UNTIL I REALLY BELIEVE HIM FULLY
THAT I'LL BE HARASSED AND TAKE SET BACKS FROM SATAN,THAT DISTRACTING BULLY.
BUT GOD SAID CHILD THIS IS JUST A SMALL CHAPTER IN A PORTION OF YOUR LIFE
THEN HE SAID EVERYTHING WILL END SO NICE 
WHEN YOU STAY FOCUSED ON MY SON,CHRIST.

DON'T SHOOT

DEAR MR. OFFICER PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME!
I HAVE SOMETHING VALUABLE TO SAY TO THE WORLD
SO KEEP YOUR BULLETS &  DON'T TRY TO MUTE ME!
I COULD BE THE NEXT JOHNNY COCHRAN
OR THE NEXT BEN CARSON SEE,
DONT ATTACK,JUST BECAUSE IM BLACK
IM NOT APPROVED FOR GRAND LARCENY
I HAVE SOMETHING  VERY VALUABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY
SO PLEASE PUT YOUR GUN DOWN 
AND PLEASE STOP EYEING ME
I GOT A POCKET FULL OF SKITTLES AND SOME ARIZONA ICE TEA
AND I MAY HAVE ON A HOODIE,BUT THAT'S JUST ME BEIN ME
WHAT IF I GET AN ITCH TO SHOOT YOU? 
JUST FOR WEARIN COWBOY BOOTS?
OR FEEL THREATENED TO SHOOT
EVERY WHITE MAN I SEE IN A SUIT?
WHAT IS THE PROTICAL FOR HANDLING SOMEONE WHO IS UNARMED?
IF I AM NOT POSING A THREAT TO YOU 
SHOULDN'T  I  BE LEFT UNHARMED?
DEAR MR. OFFICER,
WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH?
I THOUGHT WE WERE PAST THESE ISSUES
BUT SINCE WE'RE ON THIS TOPIC
WHAT'S THE RUSH?
YOU KNOW WHAT'S IT'S LIKE TO HAVE  A FAMILY
THEY ALL NEED ME TOO
WHAT IF ALL THE STUFF YOU DID,
I TURNED AROUND AND DID TO YOU???
DON'T YOU KNOW GOD IS STILL WATCHIN?
DON'T YOU KNOW YOU STILL REAP WHAT YOU SOE?
IF YOU PLANTS SEEDS OF INJUSTICES
JUST WATCH WHAT IN TIME YOU'LL GROW
PLEASE STOP WITH YOUR FALSE ALLEGATIONS
PLEASE STOP TRYING TO BE THE NEGRO SLAYER HERO
AND JUST KNOW NO MATTER HOW MANY OF US U SHOOT
 U WILL NEVER BE AT PEACE
UNTIL YOU FIX THE MAN IN THE MIRROR.

JUDAS

JUDAS
KISSED ME
SO PASSIONATELY
AS IF HE,
WOULD NEVER LET ANYONE HURT ME
YET HE,
WAS THE 1ST ONE TO HURT ME
WHY HE?
HE WALKED WITH ME,TALKED WITH ME,MADE LOVE TO ME SO DEEPLY
HE TOOK EVERY VALUABLE PART OF ME
BUT I DIDN'T MIND 
CAUSE I THOUGHT HE'D KEEP ME
WHAT A MAN 
WHAT A MAN 
WHAT A MIGHTY GOOD MAN
WHAT A PLAN 
WHAT A PLAN 
WHAT A MIGHTY GOOD PLAN
 STRATEGY
CREATING FALSE ARGUMENTS,
LIKE HE WAS MAD AT ME
LIKE I WAS THE GUILTY
BECAUSE HE WAS THE ACCUSER
LIKE HE WAS THE VICTIM
AND I,THE ABUSER
HE MADE LOVE TO ME
THEN KILLED ME BUT LEFT ME BREATHIN
HE KILLED MY SPIRITS,AND GAVE MY LIFE NO REASON
I THOUGHT HE WAS MY PRINCE CHARMING 
BUT HE WAS JUST A CHARMING,WITH PRINCE LOOKS
I WAS SEARCHING FOR WORDS,IN A PAGELESS BOOK
YET I WAS HOOKED
AND ALL OF HIS EVIL WAYS I OVERLOOKED
AFTER ALL,
THE FIRST FEW YEARS WERE LIKE HEAVEN
BUT I GUESS MASKS 
NEVER LASTS 
LIKE OUR LOVE DIDN'T LAST
THE LOYAL TEST HE DIDN'T PASS
HE HURT ME SO DEEP 
FELT LIKE I WAS LIVING IN HELL
AND THAT IS THE BURNING PAIN IN MY HEART THAT STEMS FROM BETRAYEL.

OUR CREATOR

WHY ARE YOU CRYING? 
WHY AREN'T YOU MOVING?
WHERE IS THE POWER THAT I GAVE YOU?
WHY ARE YOU NOT CHOOSING?
WHY ARE YOU NOT WINNING?
WHY ARE YOU LOSING?
WHY ARE YOU COMPARING,WHEN I MADE YOU JUST RIGHT?
WHY ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE LIGHT,AND SETTLE FOR DARK NIGHTS?
WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING AND FAULT FINDING? 
WHY ARE YOU LIVING UNDERNEATH THIS ROCK,WHEN YOU CAN BE ROCK CLIMBING??
WHERE IS THE LOVE I TOLD YOU TO RELEASE AND GIVE?
WHY AREN'T YOU LIVING THE BEST LIFE
THAT I DIED FOR YOU TO LIVE?
WHY EXACTLY DO YOU CARE SO MUCH ABOUT OTHER'S OPINIONS?
 WHEN I GAVE YOU POWER OF CHOICE I WAS GIVING YOU DOMININON
WHY DO YOU READ THIS AND DON'T ALLOW IT TO TAKE ROOT?
HOW CAN YOU FIX A TOOTHACHE
BY ONLY FOCUSING ON THE SURFACE OF THE TOOTH?
WHY DON'T YOU STOP WORRYING;
AND JUST SURRENDER TO ME?
WHY DON'T YOU LET GO OF YOUR PAST SELF
AND JUST BECOME WHO YOU SHALL BE?

MY PRECIOUS

FLESH OF MY FLESH
BONES OF MY OWN
I WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU ARE NEVER ALONE
I KNOW YOU ARE BROKEN
I KNOW YOU ARE HURT
BUT I WANT YOU TO REALIZE HOW MUCH YOU ARE WORTH
YOU'RE WORTH MORE THAN ALL THE STARS,AND WORTH ALL OF MY TEARS
YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE WHO KEPT ME GOING THROUGHOUT ALL OF THESE YEARS
WHEN YOU HURT,I HURT AND BELIVE ME THIS IS TRUE
THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD ,I WOULD NOT DO FOR YOU
IF I COULD TAKE AN ERASER
AND ERASE ALL OF YOUR PAIN,I WOULD DO IT WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED
AND I'M SURE YOU WOULD DO THE SAME
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH ,WORDS JUST CANNOT DESCRIBE
AND I WILL ALWAYS HAVE YOUR BACK AS LONG AS I'M ALIVE.

ouch

I HURT
I HURT SO BAD
I HURT TOO BAD
I HURT REAL DEEP
I HURT FOR REAL
REAL HURT
REAL HURT
DEEP WITHIN
WHERE ONLY I LIVE
INTERNAL
NO ONE LIVES IN ME,BUT ME
AND THAT IS WHERE I HURT
OR MAYBE WHY I HURT
BUT THE HURT IS THERE
LIKE IT'S MADE IT'S HOME THERE
WHERE?
RIGHT DOWN IN MY HEART
A BURNING AGONIZING EXISTENCE  OF PAIN
HEARTBREAK
DISSAPOINTMENTS
DISTURBANCES
BROKENESS
REJECTION
ABANDONMENT
SEPERATION
ANXIETY 
DOUBT 
ALL LIVE THERE
LOVE KNOCKS ON THE DOOR
FEAR ANSWERS
AND SCARES LOVE AWAY 
LIKE IT'S CANCER
RUN GET AWAY FROM HERE
GET AWAY FROM ME
I'VE TASTED THEE
I'VE WASTED THEE
FLEE FAR FROM ME
DEFENSES
BUILD FENCES
PAIN BRINGS MORE RAIN
LIES BRINGS MORE CRIES
REJECTION BRINGS FALSE PROTECTION
ISOLATIION BRINGS REVELATION OF THE DEMONIZATION THAT CAN ACT OUT REJECTION BEHAVIOR IMITATION
LIFE IS HOLLOW 
WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE A LAUGH TO BORROW
BURIED IN SORROW
NOR LOOKING FORWARD TO TOMMOROW
OUCH LIFE
YOU SHOULD'VE GAVE ME A WARNING
METEROLIGST EVEN GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO GET AN UMBERELLA
THE RAIN IS COMING
BUT I DIGRESS  THIS MESS
AND VISUALIZE AN S ON MY CHEST
NO IM NOT SUPER BUT I HAVE A SAVIOUR
ONE WHO WAS BORN IN A MANGER
HE IS NO STRANGER
AND I SHOULD ALWAYS REMIND MYSELF OF HIS PRESENCE 
IF I FEEL I AM IN DANGER
BUT OUCH THIS CAN REALLY HURT
JUST LET THE TEARS FALL DOWN MY FACE 
AS THEY WET UP MY SHIRT
NO ONE IS PERFECT
SO WHY SHOULD I STRIVE FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE?
MAYBE I THINK TO MUCH WITH MY HEART AND SHOULD JUST SETTLE FOR BEING
MENTALLY PHILOSOPHICAL 
I'LL TRADE MY WORRY FOR TRUST
I'LL TRADE MY FEAR FOR LOVE
I'LL PUT MY HEAD ON MY PILLOW
AND CAST MY CARES TO GOD ABOVE.
I HAVE NO OTHER SOLUTION.
