Come here girl, you know there’s no point
in skulking. This is what you deserve. You know
I’m not responsible. It’s not my fault
you can’t cook right. Don’t hate me
for my sense of duty.
You’re so frail;
even that chicken-wire crosshatched skeleton
can’t hold you up. Get my newspaper.
There’s simply no point in weeping.
Those who are the most compliant
Are most often
The ones with the strongest defiance
Lying beneath the surface
You speak of duty
Of a mission as sacred as any soldier
We must obey
Resistance is for naught
But we have reason
Though we may not have rhyme
The ability to lead
And the ability to die
It is not cruel
If it is at the hand of authority
Not if the person is
As worthy as their voiceless deeds
My mother always told me
not to play with fire
and to avoid evil friends
who want to conspire
listen to my conscience
set my heart aflame
kind like Jesus
Him I acclaim,
the Lord's Image,
satan does flee
where God resides
in hell's where the demons
should be because where
Jesus' Kingdom is,
we are there ...
it's also at hand when
we lift hearts in prayer.

No strength of nature can suffice
To serve the Lord aright:
And what she has she misapplies,
For want of clearer light.
How long beneath the law I lay
In bondage and distress;
I toll'd the precept to obey,
But toil'd without success.
Then, to abstain from outward sin
Was more than I could do;
Now, if I feel its power within,
I feel I hate it too.
Then all my servile works were done
A righteousness to raise;
Now, freely chosen in the Son,
I freely choose His ways.
"What shall I do," was then the word,
"That I may worthier grow?"
"What shall I render to the Lord?"
Is my inquiry now.
To see the law by Christ fulfilled
And hear His pardoning voice,
Changes a slave into a child,
And duty into choice.
There are many times that I wish that I was not here but home.
With my Amazing, Awesome, Savior whom lives in heaven .
But I was not born on this world to do whatever that I please.
I was put on this planet to fulfill a purpose that God place in me.
As well as the rest of humanity, we were created for God's good purpose.
It is because sin and rebelliousness has a hold over our flesh.
This is why we were born to want to have everything our way.
But in the very beginning it was very different for mankind.
Adam and Eve use to walk with Christ in everything here.
So because of sin our lives have grown hard to deal with.
Because when we want to live a righteous life here on the earth.
We live a very differcuit life because our flesh wants to feel good.
But our Spirit self wants to please God in everything that we do.
Aegri Somnia Vana (Latin): a sick man's dreams; hallucinations
In the country of the blind,
the one eyed men are kings
So condemn what you don't understand
It's more alluring to feed the machine
Is your life the masterpiece you dreamed of painting?
From out of the depths,
Comes Father Time to devour your /follie de grandeur
Your blissful ignorance
Your wishful thinking
It's all I can do to preserve a calm mind
But I'd rather play follow the leader
I'm plagued by my cognitive processes
It haunts me
And my inability to bring luminescence
to the infinite shadows swirling around me
Don't you know by now your essence of life
manifests in the vibrancy of your frequency?
