Blood Stained Banner

 

 

As I pierce

the deep

blue skies

returning home

questioning

‘not’

who?

What?

 When?

Where?

Nor

why?

Shoeless

‘BUT’

got His

favorite

BLOOD STAINED DRESS ON!

 

Some say it ain’t so

but,

if ‘He’

can walk on water

to me,

then

through

mustard seed

faith

an’

‘sum’

belief;

I too

can

gaze

across

the shore,

calm

the raging seas,

keeping

mine eyes

fixed

only

on Him

all the more.

And ‘YES’

drown

into

ETERNITY.

 

 

 

 

Uneducated, Uninformed, Ignorant, Unschooled, Untrained Fools!

 

 

They don’t like you

if

you’re on the dope.

They don’t like you

if

you don’t smoke.

They don’t like you

if

you’re way too loud.

They don’t like you

if

you don’t

entertain their crowd.

They don’t like you

if

you live

quiet,

meek an’ proud.

They don’t like you

if

you have

a house.

They don’t like you

if

you don’t

own a couch.

And they certainly

don’t like you

if

you’re a Father fearing church mouse.

They don’t like you

if

you stay to yourself.

They don’t like you

if

you’re with someone else.

They don’t like you

if

you mind

your business.

They don’t like you

if

you’re always

‘inna’ mess.

They don’t like you

Anyhow…

SO,

DARE TO BE DIFFRERENT

AND LEAVE ALONE

THE LIKES

OF THEIR ILLITERATE

KIND(s)!!!

 

 

 

 

WAR. What Is It Good For? ‘EVERYTHANG’!

 

 

I declare war

on

my oppressors.

I declare war

on

the lesser

of

two evils.

I declare war

on

my

persecutors.

I declare war

on

child molesters.

 I declare war

on

hate crimes.

I declare war

on

hard times.

I declare war

on

enemy lines.

I declare war

on

un-just

bias.

I declare war

on

drug dealers

pimps

prostitutes

and

liars.

I declare war

on

Satan’s hire.

 

God ain’t

‘comin’ back

to ‘brang’

no peace;

He’s ‘comin’ back

with a vengeance

to finally

‘FREE’

his peeps.

WAR.

What Is It Good For?

‘EVERYTHANG’

WRONG

as you

can‘SEE’.

 

 

 

 

‘YOU’ Don’t Know Her Story

 

 

She lays awake

at night.

She writes.

She hurts.

She pains.

She thinks

inside.

She’s wise

beyond measure.

She sees

‘ALL’

and knows;

‘YOU’

don’t know

her story.
