Sorrows

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

1st Verse:
All these people around the globe
Seeking recognition through likes and follows
What they fail to realize is even those with them
Still feel the sense of emptiness within

I see it all the time those receiving attention
Remaining in a state of indecision
Always craving more than what’s in store
Leaving themselves caught in an infinite chore

Many people there to build up their attitude
Yet they still feel depressed to a high magnitude
It’s all smiles, laughs, and gratitude in sight
But then they admit just how hard it is to fight

It takes a lot of courage to bare it all
And it takes even greater strength to stop the fall

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

2nd Verse:
There are many women victim to addictions
And it isn’t even their volition, but another’s perversion
A sad state of affairs that leaves many in despair
With many feeling too afraid no one cares

We see it all too often harassment and violence
These people don’t deserve to sit in silence
At the same time the root cause is slipping away
As we continue to allow morals to decay

Many think certain approaches are ok
When it really only attaches a bandaid
If you want the cure you need to hit the source
Which for some reason is debated away of course

Look at the masses of survivors reaching out
We need to realize the true evil that needs to be taken down

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

3rd Verse:
It seems there is truly an outbreak
Nobody forgiving themselves for past mistakes
Saturating their current mind state
With elements that they can’t change

What’s done is meant to be learned from
So why are so many limiting their options
Not giving themselves a chance to move forward
Instead deciding failure is what they’ll go toward

It’s heartbreaking knowing so many doubt
Constantly putting themselves down
I wish when I looked out and about
There weren’t so many excruciating frowns

The forecast seems to be cloudy with a chance of rain
As tears are falling while people bind themselves in chains

4th Verse:
People no longer approach marriage with full force
It’s like they find comfort in the notion of divorce
Many broken homes leaving kids stranded
Then they wonder why discipline never landed

Selfish reasons seem to be in every season
All year around there’s relational treason
Cheating has never been so rampant
I don’t know how people can stand it

Thinking they can get away with the act
Or just simply don’t contain any tact
It’s hazardous to the characteristic of trust
Which has always been somewhat of a must

All the dilemmas and problems circling around out there
Is it just me or does anyone else find it strenuous to prepare

Arisen

1st Verse:
Go ahead grab a pen and paper
Write this down and save it for later
We often times fail to see the simplicity
That is existing within our very surroundings

Call it what you want a lack of knowledge
Or being taught incorrectly from K through college
We’ve been numb to the elevation of wrong
Letting it slip through the cracks for far too long

Insensitive to problems that still remain
Since many are far too focused on personal gain
We’re not meant to feel ashamed or be lame
However the actions we’ve taken need to be tamed

There’s a purpose we’re all alive and each unique
If you feel down now it doesn’t mean you won’t peak
There’s a calling card within in each of our minds
Sometimes it just takes a little time

Where do you turn to in crucial moments
Has improvement ever happened, would you even notice

Hook:
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He is arisen now
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He’s here for you now

2nd Verse:
Knock Knock, who’s there… it’s Jesus
Believe it or not He actually needs us
This is for real it’s not a joke
We need to spread His love to more folks

The message is clear as it has always appeared
Ignore the alterations that took place over the years
A relationship isn’t a one way street
We need to do our part to fulfill the needs

There’s one path that leads to satisfaction
And it may not be the most pleasurable plan
But you’ll be suited for a greater experience
It’ll help you overcome any and all situations

So with all the nonsense that comes in our life
The way and the truth will get us through the strife
Think about how words effect your personality
Now imagine the author being pleased with your mentality

It isn’t enough to say we believe
If nothing really changes, did we honestly receive
There’s a reason faith can live on and be seen
It’s through actions like the sacrifice on Calvary

Hook:
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He is arisen now
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He’s here for you now

3rd Verse:
Our journey isn’t a simplistic mission
Many people want it to be easy, they keep wishin’
No algorithm can solve the problems we face
Only the gift from God which is His grace

As we try to improve with each given task
We need to remember the right questions to ask
There’s solace in learning the proper facts
So don’t hesitate to pursue salvation’s tracks

In order to open the treasure you need the key
But you can’t find it if you don’t believe
As we lose loved ones joy can be hard to see
So allow yourself the ability to handle grief

It doesn’t matter who you were or where you’ve been
His arms are open wide for you to come in
Not many can fathom a gift being given
Despite the action having already happened

If you feel lost now you may fear death
Since you aren’t certain what comes in the end
The message has already been depicted
The choice is yours on how your eternity is scripted

Good Book

Intro:
Often times I get asked how can I not do this or that
Why did I choose to do this or that
How or why, why or how
Well here’s a little snippet

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

1st Verse:
Nurture over nature or nature over nurture
The evils are circling around us like vultures
Trying to slip in under the guise of cultures
Many of us don’t realize we’re in torture

All the depression they say that we’re sick
As if there is no other option
I’m sorry that isn’t how life goes
We’re all meant to have some hope

Can’t you see society is on a slippery slope
You offer a little faith and they say nope
Trying to manipulate what it is we feel
Look at the epidemic of sex appeal

It’s like the lottery, trying to find shine
Where has it all gone, this isn’t fine
There’s more questions than answers
But the answers reside in the good word

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

2nd Verse:
People want to be near me or fear me
I appreciate your perspective honestly
But I can’t even define myself accurately
There’s not one of us that lives perfectly

I always try to do what is right
That doesn’t mean that I’m free from blight
Mistakes have been made over the course of life
It’s just the process of learning what to be like

Despite having a rock solid blueprint
There are times when one falls to temptation
Every situation presents a radically different decision
But are we making the ones we can live with

Precision comes in our creation
Our free will is what brings affliction
The choices give us various directions
But real forgiveness comes from one foundation

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

3rd Verse:
They say the mirror holds the best reflection
Yet our thoughts possess the important projection
What it is we think effects our daily regimen
And how we feel determines our actions

If iron sharpens iron then why berate
Our tongue like a sword cuts deeply with hate
Edification and support bring forth fate
Positivity and kindness being spread is always great

Don’t get it twisted love remains
Despite humanity’s efforts to use it in vain
Love is something that can never be slain
So feel free to hop aboard the proper train

We’re destined to succeed because Christ made us free
God is real and still many refuse to believe
Sometimes you need to believe in order to see
There is proof out there for you to receive

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

Chart success

A recent song of mine that you may have already seen posted recently titled “Needs” is doing very well on a music community website in their chart listings. As of this post it is currently at #1 in the subgenre of Christian Rap and #32 in all of Rap. If you are at all interested in taking a listen to help it out or perhaps like it enough and want a free download please visit the link below! Appreciate anyone who takes the time to give it a listen even if it isn’t your style. I feel the lyrical content can be appreciated by everyone despite their musical preferences. Hope all is well for you and yours! God Bless!

Needs

Chart Success

The recently released “My All” is now within the Top Five at #5 within the same Christian Rap chart that “In the Rain” had its success. If you would like to help support the song in the charting system you have to listen to it through this link “My All”, rather than the post below because it is upon a different website. Feel free to share it, rate it, or download it for free all within that link if you’d like. I realize it is a particular style in which some may not prefer, but if you do so decide to take a listen… just know that I am very grateful for your time.

The success of these songs helps further expand my audience and keeps me motivated to continue writing. I appreciate each and every single one of you who have supported me along the way, I truly enjoy creating new works to further express the matter of my mind as well as just allowing myself a creative release. As long as I impact atleast one person with each new piece that is all that matters, even if at times it may just be myself. If they happen to resonate with more, than that is a true blessing. I hope that all of you are doing well and are continuing to move forward with your own creative endeavors as I look forward to reading, watching, or listening to them. Thanks again! Have a great day!

Music Charts

Hello to everyone who will read this,

I am not one to speak upon my personal successes normally. Through great support and help from many, one of the recent songs I released “In the Rain” is doing very well on a large music website that contains ranking charts. Today (3/28/14) it lies at #2 on the Christian Rap chart and #55 in all of Hip Hop. My own music has been a fun hobby of mine for quite some time and it is nice to see God blessing it in this way.

I always thought it would be cool for a song of mine to be near the top of a chart someday and now it has happened. I know some of you here may have already listened to it or at the very least read the lyrics. Even if it isn’t necessarily your music style, if you do decide to listen just know that your time doing so is very much appreciated. If you would indeed like to support it on the charts go to this link represented by the title ( “In the Rain” ) to give it a listen. It is also free to download if that is of any interest to you. It may sound familiar to some as it is a remix of sorts. Thank you again for your time in reading and listening, it is as always greatly appreciated!

God Bless!
