Walking along the shore, the sand sticks to my feet. But then the waves come to greet my feet And wash the particles into the ocean.

I'm learning to trust in you, Never giving up, Life may bring unfortunate circumstances, But you are always there for me, I didn't know what love was, Until I met you I saw that reality,
I think the Earth was crying, Because I woke up and there was rain. I think the world is dying, Because we cause it constant pain. What are we doing to God’s creation? -Hang our heads in shame.
Take a stroll to my world, to another place To a new dimension, similar to outer space Tell me do you smell the taste or maybe taste the smell Prospects so complex like a microscopic cell
I will wait, I'll set the example I will do what it takes to be with you I will find myself lost in your atmosphere I will do the unthinkable in my wait I will be patient, I will run I will over your law
I know where there's hate, there is love more abundant. So, even though I hear so much of this hate, I know where there's bitter, there also is sweet. It's lasting twice as long, so when there's much wrong, I'll choose the right!

A ship was caught on the sea one night, Caught in a massive storm. It was as if it were fighting a big fight. Almost no one could cease to mourn.

Lord do we only call to You in our distress? Do we only long for Your salvation on the brink of destruction? And when in the midst of our suffering, And at the height of our tribulation, You take us under Your wing,
How do you knit a broken heart? Cause you got me thinking. That you’re the only reason. I’m willing to give up my whole world, Just for the chance to be next to you. Cause when it’s warm, I’m reminded,
Jesus said it best when He said “It is finished!” Pain, Sin, and Strife have all been Diminished He carried the cross for our sin and Shame He held up our burden so we didn’t Have to pay
Nobody knows and nobody understands sometimes the way you feel. Sometimes it feels like you can't talk to anybody. You don't want the pity but answers and a hand to reach and pull you out of the deep muck you got yourself in..
If the pain wasn’t too much to bear…I would tell the world how much I don’t care My hair’s a joke my job is non-existent… maybe I should go get extensions

Could it be? This man beside me - Battered, bleeding, dying? Could it be? Amid the rising jeers This mocking crowd is crying? Could it be? Though wails surround Of those recanting in regret?

I hope to dance in a wide open field And spin around waiting for the rain to fall; No wish for an umbrella as a shield; Waiting for my lover's enchanted call. I hope to perform In a coffee shop,
He’s with you when you’re living your own Paradise, Your life driven by your own will and having God’s plan on Paralyze, Don’t seem to realize your Paradise is really a Pair of Lies,

Compared to eternity, our life is but a blink. A day is but a second, although it's hard to think. So love without judgement, and be zealous in life. Because tomorrow is not promised, and today you are alive.
The Beautiful Torment Why is our Lord beaten, bruised, and dying, A whip from death and a whip from heaven Through the twilight, the crack of the whip rings. Tears of his children and laughter of men

They call me "Churchy" I believe in God Christians The glorious facade how easy my life must be because when things get tough, I get down on one knee, I have problems like everyone else
When you think of Jesus what do you see? A man, a son, a human? To me he is more then a person A savior more like A preacher a teacher a friend But most of all a sacrifice
You are there for me when I am crying, And in you I console. You support me in my time of need, When I require reassurance. You comfort me in my tragedies, When I can’t find another friend.
When I go meet God, I'm gonna have to give myself up to you. Lose my life, lose my heart, lose my soul! I have been dirty and broken and don't deserve your love.
When al is lost, and hope it seems, has left me here deserted. When friendship's cost, of life and dreams, have proved too much to pay. When solitude, and loneliness, are not enough to comfort.
God grant me the serenity To accept the things I cannot change The courage to change the things I can And the wisdom to know the difference...
(poems go here) This is a song of my heart, a letter of my soul
The stress of perfection showed upon my face as I gazed at my reflection, but I wasn't perfect. I had become a master of deception, writing lies in the book of life all to create a false perception.
I've got this friend His name is Jesus He gave me a brand new life All because He loves me Ive got this friend His name is Jesus He died on a cross because All because He loves me
You gave me life, my first breath taken was yours first. You loved me before I knew who I was. You watched over me while I slept, Letting peaceful dreams take me to a world not my own.
Incarcerated, but not in a real prison. Limiting myself.
Now let me start out by saying this… God made Minute Made...- because in less than a minute, a minute was made.. I got a little bit relaxed with myself when I, weaved only a little bit of his will with a whole lot of my will.
There was a man, like you and me, who born at birth could not see. His clothes were worn, his hair a mess, laid on the dirt when time to rest. His food came from a coin plate that he would beg with night and day.
The Words Hit You Like Endless Bullets. Face Them Head On, Never Give Way To It. Heard It Once, Heard It Twice. The Words They Through Out Are Meant For Your Demise.
My conclusion, revolution, only solution Government pollution, prostitution, no given restiution Conisistent years of slavery, soliders die from bravery Veterans don't get the respect for what they get paid to see
What will quench this thirst? I long for something that will sustain. The springs that flow love but not hate. Can my soul be satisfied? I find comfort in this world. Restless I am.
As I sit and think I don't know what to think about Should I think about the day, the sun, the moon, the night? Should I think about music, it's flats, sharps, and it's lines?
I'm too young to have a stressed mind If money wasn't real we would have less crime Cause of banks we got bodies full of hollow clips Put the money in the bag and run like a politic Life ain’t soft I pray in the rough
My never ending love To stand by the challenges of your life The attachment I give to you The strength I see in you
We're afraid to recognize the faults So life goes on with its deadly assaults Getting harder and harder everyday, but suddenly it halts Because sooner or later we unlock all the vaults Then sense pours out
I come from love and holy words I've memorized many lines I am welcomed by the sound of singing The songs I've grown-up to know
I'm going through the motions And I don't know why. This whole feeling is atrocious But I can't even hide. I'm smiling in the physical But crying all day. Must be something spiritual
I am free from these chains that held me. I am free from my past defining me. I am free to be the new me, the one I was meant to be. I am free because of a love so great.
I like the way things are now: How I can stand at the edge The sidewalk stopping Cars flying by, missing everything Without feeling so tempted to run To get away Because where I am now is fine.
When I am sad When I am scared When I am Lonely Lord, your always right there When I'm weak, you make me feel strong Your right beside me Lord, I'm never alone And that's why I cry this out
As the days go by, God continues to be my teacher... displaying the strongest of challenges to my eye, like cheering fans on the bleachers...
Red Blood; Shed! Purifies Me, Cleanses Me, He's No Longer Dead. Now I'm; White As Snow! THE CROSS!
What if the harmony of saints and sinners / Broke in moments o’er passing of bread? / Temporal and shallow, this generation envisage / Martyrdom, not white but red /
Sometimes I feel blind, like I cannot see But the world sees him, and also sees her The world ignores me, and never sees me But the world shields them, while I remain blurred.
You say you get beauty, but do you know what it means? The thousands of lies coming from the big screens and magazines? Beauty is on the outside they say… So you cake on the makeup trying to get through the day.
This world gives me a feeling of starkness So many places growing with darkness Setting that place on fire Cause Lord need for you is dire It's so dark they're becoming blind
I was once lost, Unnoticed in the crowd, Never knew who I was, But now I am found. I was floating through the days Wondering where I would go, My soul was in a haze But you brought me home.
What will be revealed? What will you convey? Will you proclaim I have followed you and your words, Both by speaking and by action? Will you proclaim I have broken your laws, Used you for self-glory?
I am only human, I have love that longs to be given I have pain that longs to be taken I have courage, but not enough I have strength, but again not enough Jesus died on that cross for me
He holds my heart within his hands Bending, Molding, all to plan Sometimes it hurts, but he always works. The black is now out of my heart, leaving a hole for a new start I feel all empty, sad and alone
This world I live in causes chaos to my soul I am so thankful Lord, for I know You're someone I can hold. They shut me down and say He's dead, But why should I go off of what one man has said.
Went before the judge and left with the guilty verdict of worshiping with moist lips but a chap heart.
Classic is just past it its as real as it gets no plastic when the sky cracks it all comes down collapesin' Misconception conception to get a certain impression the hard fact the admitting your wrong confession
They say i'm way too young To find the man that is the one If i dont find him i'm going to burst That is why i put my God first
Your love for me is everlasting, second chances only you are casting Seeking for love all I got was lust, as time past my heart will rust Despite my past you are still grasping, unto me while I was still dancing
My strength is gone, so i call upon the name; The name of He who did healings for the lame. I think of my life, its worth, it has none; And if it wasn't for His Blood, I would be undone.
Your love never fails me. It is everlasting. It is so wonderful that it fills me with hope and love that's so fulfilling. You caress me like a mother that's so caring.
Uncontrollably over analyzing the situation that was in front of me Only thoughts that was in my mind was about the person that I used to be
Thee ultimate love triangle They're three in one We've gat the Father the Spirit and the Son The book of Life, the crucifixion story, all written before we even begun.
Both ironic and congruent in how the black mans hands bled in the same manner Jesus' did. Broken skin, a result, not of barabaric acts, but of the extended handshake with peace. Peeling along the life line, good-bye my brother.
With a new school year, a new start, but friends depart. And we’ve led our whole lives together, but suddenly we’re taking different paths from each other.
A book of an aunt Who no longer is here Turn the pages Listen Do you hear them cry? Torn and worn down but still prized most This book that is broken It tells a tale of sleeping beauty and her prince
There is something inside of each of our souls- this desire for the things that will destroy us. We crave to behave in ways that leave scars.
I am so torn Like aborted babies that aren’t born Separated and thrown into a furnace To be burned up because of people’s purpose To reign as kings, Though he called them gods Little g’s
I wrote this a few years back before my confirmation of my faith. Hope you like it!:
Wondering, thinking if I'm ever going to be someone A ghost in the mirror, a stranger I've become Drowning my sorrow down the drain Hiding, covering, trying to disguise the pain Feeling stuck, abandoned, lost at sea
Lord of the nations and the power of creation. With lifted hands we honor thou, for you swept the sins off our brow.
I get so close, Then drift away, I'm only scared of what they'll say, But in this world, It matters not, In a few years, I'll be forgot, But in Heaven, I'll surely be known,
Is it giving you the promotion you wanted? Is it Him letting you see the game on Sunday? Is it Him giving you a dollar to find? Perhaps you eating lunch, and not having to pay?
God help me in my walk, For my steps are stunted by my pain. I know in You I have true joy, Even though the world makes me feel shame, My stunted steps are short, But You give me strength.
The battle for life, is like this: Friend against friend until all are lifeless They never see how they hurt, or whom Rather, they only See at their doom Where destruction laughs And they scream
In the dark, alone, scared. Can't find anything, any where, no light. "Where am I, Am I home." As I speak the words real slow, Frost fogs up an appearing window. I look out it and see myself chained up.
