I'm not all that good,
I'm not all that bad,
Maybe one day,
I'm as bad as a person can be,
Maybe on another day,
I'm one of the best you can meet,
Raised in a small town,
Where people gossip
from sun up to sun down,
Brought up poor in a broken
family, only added more,
When I'm out and about,
I get those judgemental stares,
with whispers of, "she's hopeless,
she's beyond repair,
I get worked up so
I purposely give them a reason to
gasp for air,
Of course they all claim to be Christians,
The type that choose clean blue water
to be baptised in,
But I was baptised in muddy water
and I'm glad to say," hey listen up,
I was baptised in muddy water so
I guess that makes me too ***** for
Then I smile to myself because
I know something they must not,
JESUS WAS BAPTISED IN MUDDY
WATERS, as well.
I imagine it kind of went like this:
Upon meeting Jesus, John said: "I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? I imagine Jesus told John it was only right to do so, I can imagine John trying to convince Jesus to at least let him find cleaner waters but Jesus knew so He refused.
You see in the time of Jesus’s baptism, the Jordan river and surrounding areas was no less than now, a river full of muck, *****, muddy, and gross looking, you can’t see two inches into it today nor could you then.
These very people called Christians are the same people who judge so harshly, through the centuries they've compared Jesus's baptism to our own, with an understandable preference for the clear waters of a Blue Hole over the muddy waters of the Jordan and beyond,
So yeah, I'm all messed up in the head,
Better the head than the heart,
But you've already judged my part.
So if you ever run out stuff to gossip about, just think back and remember,
the small town girl that was baptised in muddy water.

The word Christian is so diluted that I refuse to be labeled as one. Christianity was a new religion started by Paul. Honestly, I know many and they do gossip, intentionally hurt others and think they're way is the only right way. Look at all the wrongs done in the name of Christianity. However I do believe that there are some genuine people who label themselves as a Christian and proudly. https://m.facebook.com/VenjencieCliftonArnold
