Amazing Grace

There’s something to be said about picking yourself up and either starting over or just staying in the race

It’s rather amazing ’cause the decision to do either ain’t easy
Life sets in, days are long and nights are short

But thank God for his Amazing Grace that whispers in your ear
to keep on keeping on to see what the end gone be

Pressing Thru . . . Joshua

Standard

Pressing thru not so popular opinions
Odd, mediocrity and adamant disbelief
A dream I am pressing thru Joshua
Conceived by hope consummated by love

When I was yet unburn a struggle in the valley
Pain and despair plagued my family
A dream I am pressing thru Joshua
Totally committed to fulfillng a promise

A promise created in the valley of perilous times
For without the valley there could be no mountain
For without the mountain there could be no me
Pressing thru Joshua
Relieving the pain and despair that plagued my family

Brought forth in full bloom the season is nigh
Kissed by an angel a new love bye and bye
Released by my Lord, my God, in heaven proclaimed
A dream I am
Joshua is my name

A rod in my hand, splitting my red sea
Opening mine eyes a glorious majesty
Sounding my trumphet ringing my bell
A marvelous sight
Now this you can tell

For I am His workmanship
Created in Christ Jesus for good works
Which God prepared beforehand
That I should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10)

Pressed thru
Joshua I am

9/02
In dedication to my God-Son Joshua who has endured a lot from conception, delivery and existence. Nanna Reba love you!

The Art of Relationships

Standard

nobody quite knows what goes on
nobody cares what goes on
nobody really want to know what goes on

what does it really mean to give yourself to someone
what does it mean for someone to give of themselves to you

the past the secrets the laughter the tears
shaped into this unique figurine
should you touch it might break
should you reject it it goes away
should you nourish it it slips through your fingers
if you find it again you might get lucky

time pass babies born characteristics and habits
generation to generation
nothing fixed nothing changed a lot broken a lot of pain
should you touch it it might break
out of curiosity the chance you take

the art of relationships can be much too much to bear
reciprocate the love you felt
who knows that special someone may have been afraid
instead they shared thoughts and dreams exquisitely shaped into this unique figurine

my cup runneth over

Standard

plenteous
fruitful
flourishing
when the season has come
and the harvest is ripe
reaping that is predestined planted prepared
yearning for righteousness
seeking the knowledge of the King
speaking softly humbled and meek
blessings and anointing you shall bring

your cup runneth over
and that you can see
it’s not too much to bear
He did it for you
He did it for me

open your eyes
smell the roses
don’t stray from the path
there’s more where this comes from
don’t get caught in the wrath

blessings

Can You Feel Me

Standard


not to be mistaken or disrespected
renamed or even less neglected
can you feel me

lacde satin smooth sleek caressing your torso before your speak
can you feel me

sexy intelligent woman of your ribs
sent here as your better half not as victim in tears
can you feel me

not to be degraded manipulated set aside
instead someone you should overwhelmingly pride
not to be torn down built up torn down again
only to notice i’m not cherished appreciated applauded
even welcomed as i walk in

finer than ol’ aged wine
words softly spoken
written as one of God’s greatest tokens
manifested with wisdom from above
exemplifying constant love

stronger than steel
your weaker vessel by far
already a risen star

a virtuous woman some may say
laugh high five
brothers hope i come yuor way

can you feel me
