Necessity

Being alone brings a great peace
Something that is so elegant, a great release
When one is alone physically
You can be comforted greater spiritually
Many people view certain lifestyles as lonely
When you’re never truly singular if you’ve come to know the Heavenly

This life can present quite the masquerade
People wearing many different masks each day
Hiding their true selves to one person or the next
Presenting a falsification of what is really going on in their head
Many seek after what it is they wish to find
Rather than the gifts they should desire from the Divine

Hope hasn’t died, just many people have given up
They’ve turned away from the truth and relied on what they can pour into a cup
Enough is enough, but only they can decide to change
There are those of us who provide the tools to present grace
Just many ignore the need for something greater
Because they get tied up in the fact that everyone has errors
Which should indicate to them the reason we all need a Savior

Pulse

A thread is all you need to make a pattern
So when times are tough stick with those who matter
Don’t try to go outside the lines
Keep holding tight to what’s right on the inside

There is always hope in tomorrow
For it begins a new day to move away from your sorrow
Letting go sometimes is the hardest thing
Especially if the one who hurts you the most is wearing a ring

Struggle is part of any process
The mountains and valleys help create progress
Without a test you never have a chance to build
So stick with this life and exercise your will

There’s always a chance

That you’ll learn something
That it means nothing
That it could possibly change everything

Let the heavens sing
Let the phones ring
Let the changes of love begin happening

Open your eyes to what the day brings
Have the purpose of life flow like a spring
Never forget that kindness is always worth practicing

Endure

Trying to hide
The fallen pride
Identity subsides
Anger collides
Then depression divides
Love can provide
An outlet to guide
So never give in to suicide

Voice of Christ

When I first arrived it was like a miracle
A little bundle of joy, something special
Carried throughout the entire pregnancy
By a woman who wasn’t ready for me

She felt it fit to give me life
Rather than forfeit it to the knife
I was protected by good decision
The free will to truly listen

Not sure of her story since
Since I’ve been gone through adoption
Born in Brazil, but raised in Michigan
I doubt I’ll ever see her again

The once hope to meet in Heaven
Seems slim as time continues to tick
With how the world is it’s somewhat unrealistic
However, I pray that at some point she once again listened

Colorblind

Some know the actual diagnosis
I’m here to be of a different witness
It isn’t the colors in the environment around us
But that of which is on the skin creating a fuss

I’ve been raised to ignore that difference
I’ve made the decision to treat others how I want to be treated
It isn’t that special or magnificent
Just the choice to be a loving human

Many talk about race
When our lives are so fast pace
Yes we have different heritage
But none to disparage

God is love through Christ He gave a gift
Anyone anywhere can get a hold of it
Doesn’t matter where you’re from or who you are
Literally every type of human under the stars
Can accept it freely without charge

With the significance of the world’s indifference
It boggles many minds that it’s so simplistic
Many try to disprove the existence
However creativity remains a characteristic
Don’t be afraid to claim the inheritance
Save yourself from all this belligerence

His arms opened wide to welcome you home
His season is amongst us, so step away from your phones
Show some appreciation to those around you, the time is now
Help create a better outlook before the hatred further brings us down

Sightline

Eye on perfection
Eye on motivation
Eye on dedication
Eye on the projection

Eye on elation
Eye on duration
Eye on affection
Eye on a solution

I got my eye on the prize… eye on the prize

Eye on protection
Eye on reflection
Eye on hydration
Eye on my preservation

Eye on coloration
Eye on delegation
Eye on cultivation
Eye on the declaration

I got my eye on the prize… eye on the prize

Eye on confirmation
Eye on exaltation
Eye on illustration
Eye on the relations

Eye on innovation
Eye on integration
Eye on realization
Eye on all creation

I got my eye on the prize… but the prize has their eyes on me

Walk

I’m held in place by God’s grace
With Him I’ll never deteriorate
Through Christ my sins are forgiven
Sanctified by Him from the beginnin’

I walk forward in this life to end strife
Provide some comfort and insight
I don’t have all the answers, I too ask questions
Regardless though I’ve learned a lot from my experiences

Looking out into the lives of the masses
It is easy to learn, no need for any classes
Situations are dire and many are in need
Plenty caught in addictions at crazy speeds

I’ve never claimed to be better
If anything I’ve admitted I’m a sinner
That’s why I need forgiveness from the creator
And with His help, I’m constantly working to improve my character

We all need aid, which is why we seek love
We’re not supposed to be alone in the battle
Consider what it is you’re a part of
Because with this one life it’s easy to get rattled

Provide yourself a little hope, whatever your background is
Today could be the worst, but tomorrow could be bliss
Never give up working toward your goals and dreams
The illusions of failure are not what they seem

Advantage

Hope is as real as the pain you feel
Multiplicative to infinity and beyond
Don’t let vengeance become the real
Allow love to grow and be what is fond

Assisting the menacing behavior
Is the last thing the world needs
Believe upon a steadfast principle greater than yours
No need to contribute to the way the world bleeds

Coming out with a new stroke
Paints a design far better than blurred lines
Seek to inject positive ideas, not just poke
Thrive upon the identity of what’s divine

Sorrowful it is you may feel at the moment
Tests, trials, and difficulties surround you
The testimony, triumph, and difference is the development
What transpires through your hardship is what can help others not give up, but continue

Stronghold

I have these visions of heroics
They’ll come true at some point, I know it
Some painful and intense
While others leave gaps, inducing suspense

When will the times come, am I prepared
I’ve yet to face some, I’m a protector this I’ve declared
Preventing despair for another is second nature
I’m a lover not a fighter, but will fight for what’s greater

Sometimes it’s instinct and not choice
Often times I keep myself silenced, when my thoughts should be voiced
I’m just a man living one day at a time
Hoping to impact the world for the better by deed and by rhyme

The day will come when only true words will soar
When negativity will burn away and be no more
Until that time comes it’s our duty to react
To work toward the better keeping elements of peace intact
