Hopeless Gospel
Marquise Conyers May 2014
Great lord I pray
Lend me thine grace
And heed my redemption
I repent in the name of Christ
Who died upon the cross

Lord I pray for redemption
I've amassed much sin
And repent
Please give me strength

Where are you father
Have I become hopeless
Did you leave me
Like a branded cowboy

Lord I pray for power
I've given up on being holy
I pray for strength
So I may conquer my foes

Maybe you're my true lord
You listen
You're powerful
You're there

Praise you

Spoken Word: The Norm
Marquise Conyers Aug 2013
We live in a passive nation.
Where people are so numb to the gum that attracts A man to woman.
We live in a place where **** and divorce are now The norm.
We were taught that marriage was sacred yet the People who preach it are those who dont avail it.
When people teach and preach their lies to defend Themselves they know they are wrong but deny What their eyes define as truth.
We've come to accept that those who do wrong do It for right reasons.
So now execution by state is okay because a man Can pass judgment on man, and the people do not Think twice !
We use a book written ages ago to cover up our Pathogenic lies and shield others eyes to their Lives.
But that's the norm.
We allow others to do what they please, because They have the "power".
But that's the norm.
We no longer cry because someone has been Murdered on the news.
Because that's the norm.
We slander people and hold their shadow to their soul and why?
Because it's the norm!

— The End —
