JESUS said I would be saved if I listened
And changed my ways.
The Father sent down his begotten son
For there was so much work to be done.
Christianity would not come overnight
We had to stand up to “ tyranny “ and fight.
Look at the word Christianity and my name
You’ll plainly see.
I look to you now Lord on bended knees
And to you I do plead
Just give me a chance to show I’ve changed
For there is no other way , cause in my heart
You will forever stay.
You have made the ultimate sacrifice
When you gave up your own life.
Your love and belief in the father above
Who had given you his tender love
To fight the devil on his ground , and try to
Weaken and put you down.
He tried to entice you with gold , diamonds and pearls
And even tried to offer you his world , but you had
Stood your ground . And any weaknesses he had never found.
Now I can never be as strong as you , I know that and so do you.
Yet I will give it my every being and every fiber of my soul
To try to keep all evil thoughts on hold .
Although it is hard with this world in such turmoil
And slavery , hypocrisy and wars still exist , and
Hatred in our midst.
We tend to fall out of your grace in this time
And in this place , but LORD I am trying
To follow your words , cause I know that no one can
Follow the path that you led , or the pains and the
Blood that you bled.
Strengthen me for I am weak , and build me up
To my peak.

A Fathers Torment
We hide in the shadows in obscurity
We are the fathers of the children that you see
Women are the life line, that we all know.
Since the beginning of conception and
Throughout our lives, we have to thank them
For becoming our mothers and our wives.
Men plant the seed, but on the woman’s
tube the children do feed.
Without the female there is no life
So as men we have to think twice.
At times though, we feel empty and forgotten
For all that we do in a child’s life.
When we play games with them, teach them
And give them moral support
It is something that is given, not something that is bought.
We will go back into the shadows when our hearts
Are about to burst, and this is what makes the pain so much worse.
They say that a man is not supposed to cry
But you and I know that’s an old fashioned lie.
We bleed, we cry, we feel heartache too
We are human, this is what we do.
Any man can be a father, but every man can not be a dad.
And I look upon that, and it makes me very sad.
This child has our blood and we helped to give it life
But there is no credit given to the husband, ” just the wife“.
We may be just the father, but we share in their lives too.
All we ask is recognition of the things that we do.
I recall at your birth, when I walked into the delivery room
Your eyes called me, like a mystical, magical tune.
Your eyes searched me out like a rooster for the rising sun
And looking in your eyes, I knew you was the one.
This is a fathers torment that I guess we all go through.
But without your love and dependence, what am I going to do.
I love you more than you’ll ever know
Look in my eyes, and there it will show.
And to your mother she must know:
The key number in this world is TWO, without me there is no you.
For a relationship to work you must have three things
Love , Respect and Honesty
If one is missing it will not work !
Knowing this – he decided to tell her :
“ it’s time I ask you to marry me – five years together
So you know we were meant to be.
If we argue we walk away , for tomorrow
Always brings a calmer day . “
We enjoy walking hand in hand , we like the same music
And the same bands.
I love your parents and you love mine , and they’re
Always asking if we picked a time.
We spoke of children and getting a large home
So both our parents would never be alone
And Combining our incomes so we could enjoy life
Without any struggles and strife.
If you say yes , I’ll be a happy man and we could
Go on with our plan.
This is my relationship proposal to you and all
I need is to hear you say “ I do “.

Angels of God take my hand and show me the way
Put me in Gods path so I will not stray.
I felt his presence when I called out his name
I knew then my life would forever change.
I felt a tingling sensation and my hairs stood on end
He is my God , my Savior , my Friend.
He comes to me in my times of need , and on
His strength I do feed.
I looked to the skies and then to the ground
And gave thanks for the beauties I have found.
All my friends and family are near , and with them
Gods love we share
The path of hypocrisy is all around , just turn
And look around.
People have lost faith in their fellow man
And the politicians promises have gotten out of hand
They are in need of something in which to believe
But long before these politicians , God had planted his seeds.
Let us not let them govern our lives and give us the
crumbs from their plates , and try to break our spirits
And our faith.
The riches are not here on this earth , for we cannot
Take it with us when we die – the riches are in Gods
Heavens , where material things are not needed
And don’t exist .
Your search of peace within is in your grasp and
With GOD it will forever last.
( Do you have clothes on your back and have food to eat ?
Do you have a job and or your health and family or friends ?
Because if you do , then you are rich beyond a politicians
Expectations . You see we can learn to live in their world
But they will not survive in our world of struggles and strife once their wealth is gone.)
Regain your faith – it’s never too late !

Blessed was the day that I walked the streets alone
No family , no friends , no home
With five cents in my pocket and my clothes torn and tattered
And death seemed like the only solution that mattered.
I would ask people for help and they would turn their backs.
No one knew me or what I had gone through , but they was
Quick to judge and to put me down , and once in a while
Throw a coin on the ground.
I went to the top of the bridge ready to jump , when I heard
A voice say “ don’t do that – for you are my son “
I looked around , but there was no one there
Just a puff of smoke hanging in the air.
“ there are tests that everyone goes through , just to see
What they will do “
When you was about to take that plunge you asked
For forgiveness and GOD heard your plea , and decided to send me.
Still looking at the puff of smoke when it started to take shape
Of an Angel with the most beautiful face , and all in white
From head to toe and the face with such a beautiful glow.
As it stood there I could see the wings on it s back
And as that hand touched me , I saw my old life come back.
GOD said you never did anything wrong my son – it was just a test of time
Of when you would call me and take away your blinds.

Saint Peter was at the gate to welcome me in
As an angelic choir sang a glorious hymn
There was so many different shades of green that
On earth had never been seen
Shades of blues , whites and reds , to dazzle
Your eyes and your head.
I walked around in complete awe. And meeting
family members I had never seen before
They knew everything about me from my birth
The good , the bad , and all it s worth.
Every one of our lives was put on a screen
So our lives could be seen.
As I looked behind me , I could see all the
Members of our family tree
It was like looking at a television with channels
And volumes – and I was the remote with the power
To look at each one and what they had gone through
In their life , before they came to GODS paradise.
Then came Saint Peters voice like a gentle wind
Welcoming all the new comers in.
“ welcome my brothers and sisters to Paradise
You are all here because you led a decent life “
All of heaven is covered in white for JESUS purity
And sacrifice .
All of GODS creations are here for you to see.
You can swim with the dolphins or play with a deer
For all the animals from earth are all right here.
Every creature is as gentle as can be , and are
Waiting for your company
Baby don’t run so fast , my heart has to
Catch up to you if it can.
You’re going thru life like a race
It’s time you slowed up your pace.
I want to be there at your bewitching hour
When you stop to smell the flowers.
I’ve been in love with you for so long
And my heart has grown so strong.
Your face appears to me in my sleep
And my heart begins to leap.
The scent of your perfume , the softness of your hair
Your eyes hypnotic beyond compare.
Let me hold you in my embrace and capture
All the beauty of your face.
I know that time goes by very fast , but
My love you’ll have to grasp.
Patience is a quality which I have outgrown
So don’t let my love turn to stone.
Don’t run so fast !

My heart is warmer and my soul is on fire
My spiritual life is climbing much higher
I found myself after searching for so long
It’s always been where it belonged.
The cross I carry around my neck has filled
Me with the greatest love yet.
I hold it in my hand and I kiss it all day
And to him I do pray.
My prayers are answered every time that I speak
And only him do I seek .
No longer do I have an emptiness where all
My fears I did hide , just an exhilarating feeling deep inside.
Like an empty bottle that is filled with wine
He fills my spirit with a love divine.
Call his name when you are in despair , and your problems
With him you share.
You’ll feel a calmness in your mind , and the relief
Which is hard to find.
Put it in his hands and believe with all your heart
And he will tear the problems apart.
