The Truth is

Can click play to listen to the piece as you read

So many ask “What is truth”
How is it you define truth?
Because many out there want to know what truth is
Some say it’s what you experience
While others feel it deals with relationship

The truth is… the truth is

Only one holds the answers and it’s a gift
Not many in this world can fathom it
Nobody seems to appreciate the relevance
So what is it exactly that the truth is

The truth is… the truth is

You want to know my story
You idolize someone else’s glory
It’s not easy living in a world of heresy
It’s not easy leading a life with meaning

We get force fed false idols
A pictured painted to feel entitled
The wrong ways, the wrong signs
The culmination of the end times

These mood swings, these terror rings
The news feeds with celebrities
It’s a conspiracy that’s gleaming
A distraction that is demeaning

Tied up in ethnicities
I’m sorry we’re all humanity
The focus on wealth is a tragedy
The disrespect isn’t encouraging

We all need to take a breath
We all need a stress test
To analyze our hearts intent
What’s in our mind is blatant

If you must see just to believe
Then you’re missing simplicity
All the factors of hypocrisy
Are dragging us down emotionally

The quiet times, the lawful lines
The mistakes should not be enshrined
Is our focus now to entwined
That we’ve lost what’s on the inside

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is I’ve lost touch
Sometimes I feel I’m not enough
I’ve been through some rough stuff
But nothing that God wasn’t in control of

You see I’ve been knocked down, but not out
I’ve been battered and bruised there’s no doubt
However, with that said I’m not dead
So there’s no reason for me to be hanging my head

There’s much worse out in this planet
So I hope you don’t take life for granted
Ready or not one day you’ll see
That perspective can mean everything

There’s homeless and helpless
There’s cognizant and belligerent
There’s informative and ignorance
There’s religion and relationship

So many similarities it truly is uncanny
Depending on the definitions that we see
Determine the people that we will be
Something that should be taken very seriously

If you look back at the past
What is it to you that lasts
There are many things called history
But not many are worth mentioning

Those that are seem to stand out
So why not go about and stand proud
If it’s something you believe then be loud
It can’t be passed on without word of mouth

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is Christ died and rose again
But many don’t think that happened
It’s a sad day and a sad way to be betrayed
To ignore how love was being portrayed

Many argue with science or mathematics
To each their own but it proves creative tactics
In order to create there has to be intelligence
So how can you say there’s no divine design

You developed, I developed
Not on our own accord, but through a process
This society we have now is all a mess
Something we made, which is why many are depressed

This is what happens when we abandon faith
Ignoring the facts just to do things our own way
Nothing will succeed if we turn away
Nothing positive will occur if we don’t change

Many want things to stay the same
Just to further the agenda of their own name
It’s quite a shame to observe
The masses and masses being conquered

The evil within can be rooted out
Only if the desire is there to be found
If one can’t acknowledge they are lost
Then how can they then overcome the cost

Love hasn’t gone away
Love hasn’t gone astray
The reality is love hasn’t changed
The problem is we’ve become deranged

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is I’ll never be married
It is a burden I’m left to carry
No wife, no ring, no kids, no legacy
Something that use to anger me

Now time still ticks and it makes me sick
To know that I’m rare in order to care
About the life I live as a Christian virgin
So unique that it peaks your interest

I open my eyes and plead to the skies
That there are those like me that still exist
Because if there is then maybe I’m wrong
And I can begin to sing a new song

I just know that it isn’t likely
So here I stand with the same plan
To remain loyal to the God that made me
The Lord that has always stuck with me

To avoid the temptations that others absorb
So I can shine His light once out the door
It shouldn’t be a mystery that I am different
Otherwise I am not being legitimate

I am not afraid of what others may say
Not tomorrow, nor today
This is my life as it remains
True to the choice to abstain

Each moment I take in order to pray
I hope that there are others who will be saved
It really pains me to witness the rarity
Of those who value themselves in this humanity

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is too many are focused on getting rich
Not enough of us are focused on the kids
Those worldwide or those of our own cribs
Many misguided all through their adolescence

Being unattended and left babysat by technology
With the media pumping them full of violent tendancies
The news only corresponds to the most epic tragedies
So if they want attention they go on shooting sprees

Many are forgotten and faced with trafficking
Something hidden away from the mainstream
Apparently it isn’t worth it to be educating
Slavery still being dominant in this society

Embedded in their mind are thoughts of pleasure
Sex rules their entertainment nothing else close to measure
What is deemed a choice gives pressure
The problem is the choice they think is right deals with murder

Difference of opinion doesn’t change the facts
Most kids these days don’t think just react
What happened to the notion of cause and effect
Probably deals with the lack of parental consequence

As I said there is too much nonsense
A plethora of wrongful information entering their heads
They’re not getting enough positive attention
People who care enough to give them real direction

Most are treated as if they don’t have a purpose
Being given lies that their lives aren’t worth it
Suicide is still rampant to a great degree
Something you’ll never be able to diagnose medically

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is my parents have been married my whole life
But between us three kids the weddings were five
Marriage these days has taken a dive
With the divorce rate continuing to thrive

I’ve asked myself a thousand times
Where does this world instill their pride
While sin continues to take them on a ride
It leads to a road of destruction as they die

Mistakes and heartache continue the plague
The variables these days are all insane
With emotions sick, my heart beats quick
And the walls around us remain thick

We build them up and tear them down
When we’re not the ones wearing the crown
Many people argue that times have changed
Yet stupidity seems to remain the same

So many attached to what feels right
They ignore the proper matters of insight
A relationship takes time to build
Sex isn’t what makes you fulfilled

Those who use that as a foundation
Find themselves in horrible situations
Their relations never seem to work
Because they miss out on all the other perks

If commitment doesn’t keep you driven
Then you should reevaluate your actual reasons
Because anything that leads to mistreatment
Should be thrown out before you’re both depleted

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is I’m not who I should be
There is plenty that needs improving
My guidelines are found biblically
Which is why I’ve been sacrificing

It’s enticing to see others answer the call
Not even worried about a potential fall
They just take the leap of faith
No questions, no laziness, just pure strength

Their path is straight, not deviated
They march on to see others elated
There’s no time for procrastination
This lifetime needs full attention

There is always room for improvement
No one on this earth is perfect
Trust is hard to come by in these times
Which is why Christ saved our bloodlines

Too many try to run and hide
When the truth is right there to find
Will they seek or will they sink
Each breath takes you closer to the brink

Love won’t ever become extinct
Because God is alive eternally
Alpha Omega beginning and the end
The one who made you should be your best friend

This life won’t ever be easy completely
But there is much to gain from simplicity
Each and every one of us are guilty
Which is why we need grace that is heavenly

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is you’re still alive
So a difference can be made toward what’s right

God Bless!

I Will

Listen while you read here

Opening:
Today it’s used as an insult
Everybody rushin’ to this new cult
People want to crucify religion
Tryin’ to make fun of us Virgins
It’s crazy, get use to it… we’re different

1st Verse:
Many people doubtin’
My integrity and its silly
I’m genuine, yes a virgin
Not interested in your mimicry

I’ve climbed the mountains to abstain
Runnin’ from the temptations each day
You ask how is it possible to do so
Well, it’s been a mindset from the get go

I’ve been straight forward from the start
A man of my word with Christ in my heart
I never allowed an opportunity to waver
No matter how many times I might’ve craved her

Many women with such beauty
I’ve remained true and I’m nearin’ thirty
I’ve never been one to cheat
So why would I slip up before obtainin’ a wifey

You and I are obviously different
I don’t demand respect I just get it
The women aren’t mine to objectify
There’s a far greater reason they’re alive

So to seek only one thing is despicable
I’m not exaggeratin’, I’m bein’ quite literal
The notion of seekin’ temporary pleasure
Isn’t the reason we’ve been given this life adventure

Now close your eyes and ask
Why you want acceptance but diminish another’s tracks

Chorus:
These days people are so concerned with the feels
Little do they know the reality of what’s real
I’ve been accepted and rejected, what’s the deal
I’m not concerned with their judgment, so no need to appeal (x2)

I don’t buy into the gossip
And I’d rather not deal with your problems

I will maintain my virgin status, I will… I will
I will do it for the only King reignin’ right now
I will, I will… I will

Yeah, I won’t give up on this commitment
Just to appease your addictions

I will maintain my virgin status for the true King reignin’
Yes I will, I will… I will

2nd Verse:
Now that I’m older people focused on marriage
As if they don’t have enough to fit on their carriage
I’m in no rush to delve into the mixed messages
I’ve made peace with the percentages

I’m set to ride out my life just fine
I don’t need sex to feel alive
So many differentiations you’ll see
But conformity to self just isn’t me

There’s always an attraction
It’s hard to avoid women when in motion
Even if your life is stagnant
It’s innate to have that passion

People look at my past puzzled
Goin’ through a big college, but kept it muzzled
It wasn’t easy as there were plenty
Of offers to go about fornicating

I may be stronger than the average
But not some super hero, just a simple advantage
I’ve been blessed to know value
To experience what love is from someone true

God doesn’t test me to fail, but failure is an option
Evil exists and many want to alter my situation
However I’m beyond their attempts to slay
That respect I hold for each and every lady

Chorus:
These days people are so concerned with the feels
Little do they know the reality of what’s real
I’ve been accepted and rejected, what’s the deal
I’m not concerned with their judgment, so no need to appeal (x2)

I don’t buy into the gossip
And I’d rather not deal with your problems

I will maintain my virgin status, I will… I will
I will do it for the only King reignin’ right now
I will, I will… I will

Yeah, I won’t give up on this commitment
Just to appease your addictions

I will maintain my virgin status for the true King reignin’
Yes I will, I will… I will

Interval:
If you’re a virgin… don’t be ashamed, be proud of what you are

Chorus:
These days people are so concerned with the feels
Little do they know the reality of what’s real
I’ve been accepted and rejected, what’s the deal
I’m not concerned with their judgment, so no need to appeal (x2)

I don’t buy into the gossip
And I’d rather not deal with your problems

I will maintain my virgin status, I will… I will
I will do it for the only King reignin’ right now
I will, I will… I will

Yeah, I won’t give up on this commitment
Just to appease your addictions

I will maintain my virgin status for the true King reignin’
Yes I will, I will… I will

Closing:
Be proud… don’t be ashamed, be proud
Don’t listen to all the negative hateful sounds
Stay true to you and that significant other you’ll commit to

Last Virgin Standing

To some it’s a hard concept to understand
Because of what society seems to demand
It isn’t hard to follow a simple plan
However not many people really can

So what if I don’t want to give in
I’d rather live pure than further delve in sin
Why be so quick to cheat on my future wife
When I can change this label at a more appropriate time in life

I see many feeding their frenzy all around me
That’s cool more power to them really
I’m happy I can announce I don’t carry a disease
Or have to explain to my parents why I suddenly have an unexpected baby

I know parents these days who expect their kids to utilize abstinence
When they themselves failed to even follow its true definition
Then they’ll turn to somebody else and have the audacity to say hypocrite
It’s not hard to live the way that I do, but again people try to insult me for it

I’m not afraid to make the stance
I love to dance, just not the form in which our world is entranced
Temptation always lingers but I’m proud to have the strength to resist
I know many who took the opposite action to later express regret
Which isn’t something I’d ever want to feel again, so sex gets dismissed

Virgin is a word that appears to be a new insult
When all it displays is a choice to abstain from this new crazed cult
Can try to insult my choice all you want it isn’t yours to make
I respect you, which is why I don’t judge what you did to break

Many people who are the same are eager to fade
But I ask why be in such a rush to get laid
It would seem there aren’t many of us left standing
Many are lying in wait or on their knees begging
I’ll remain here on my feet thank you very much, till I’m married

There are those who choose differently than I, which is fine
Just don’t try to persuade me that my choice is yours to decline
Respect it or move on forward
Cause sex isn’t something I’m moving toward

I prefer to be unique as it is
Therefore yes, I’m proud to be a Virgin
The fact that I’ve been through high school and college
Has given me a broad look and vast knowledge

It’s allowed me to see I’m not missing much
I don’t need to experience that elevated form of touch
The masses can disagree all they want
But the number 0 is the one I’ll flaunt

I’ve never been accused of mistreatment toward a woman
That is how I prefer to be remembered
To indulge in such a gift without showing any commitment isn’t my regimen
I’d rather build them up rather than tear them down for a sexual endeavor

Can knock it all you want, but I can be like you at any time
I’ll continue to embrace this view in which I hold dearly
To remain diligent toward a life focused on what’s divine
Because it has always made me see my surroundings clearly

I’m just a simple man, who made a simple choice
I’m a man of my word, so I remain with this voice
Will my abstinence ever change, only when I get Married
If that doesn’t happen then Virgin status will continue to be carried

There aren’t many of us left and there isn’t much support
However I’ll stand at the frontlines always ready to report
