When, I look, at you, I see, freedom! You releasing, the bad, in me! I agree, sometimes, your right! I've learned, not, to fight, the ways, of love! Above, all else, you bring, life! Inspite, of, our diffrentces, a coherence, exists, bettween us! I must, have you! I'm through, with chasing, a dream, that, I have! I'm glad, I met, you, loving, and loyal! I look, forward, to the time, we spend!

He is, great, to me! He wakes, me up, in love, for free! My days, were surrounded, in darkness! Until, all, of my sins, he pardoned! When I, had, no one, else, he withstood, my tests, and life, I have, more abundantly! He fills, my life, with joy! He makes, me want, much more! Oh, what a friend, I have, in Jesus! There could, never, be, an equal! His love, is with me, now, and forevermore!

I slip, but, I, never fall! Above it all, there, are beings, of power! They sit, and watch! Clocks, couldn't trace, their movement! We, are clueless, to the ways, of God!

Actually, it's a joy, to need! For as, I release, my fears, he proceeds, to bless, me, indeed! My days, become, happy! I have, a peace, in my mind! My nights, escape, trajic, thing's, that occur, in, the blind! City's fall, and rivers, bleed! People scream, yet, he, protects me! War's, occur, and faces, burn, yet, God's glory, protects his children! As they, learn, through, casualties!

A faithful man, is not, always heard! He spends, his time, in prayer, and, not words! Actions, go further! He believes, therefore, he, achieves! His time, is spent, helping others! He forgives, even, if, he can't, forget! He puts, God first, at all, times! He remembers, the fatherless! He loves, the widow! His favor, is with, God, the only, hero! He respects, his mother! He follows, humbly, his father! He loves, his wife! Even inspite! His brother, is his, friend, in love! His blessings, flow, from above!

I choose, to be, happy! Even though, life, can get, tragic! It started, with, a dream! At times, I, can be, very mean! Yet, I choose, to love, my neighbor! For that, I thank, my savior! Imagine, a place, of darkness! No one, seemed, to pardon! A world, all alone! I, was caught, in, a very, bad zone! Yet, my king, sat on, his throne! He never, left, me alone! I searched, for love, but, found, no friends! Until, I, felt, his love, hate, consumed me, from within! The feeling, was that, of, an angel! It touched, me, and, I believed, in that, favor! Imagine, love, so strong, that you, don't, deserve it! It, overtakes you, even, when, your, not worthy! Love, so endless, that, it has, no boundaries! Forever, I am, so grateful, that, Jesus, found me!

I awoke, with, a joke! The sun, was shining, so much, it became, blinding! The birds, chirped! I fed, them, bread crumps, in, a hurry! My vision, was blurry, the breeze, blew flurries! Of endless, relief, from, the heat! I even, beat my alarm, clock! Today, was blessed, by, the best!

To God, be the glory! My only, hope, is love! He's, the reason, for life's, story! Imagine, a world, with no, you! Choices, kill us! Not, the things, we, go through! The light, surrounds, the darkness! Calling, it, to pardon! Reminding, it, of the truth! I, will never, be better, than you!

Most people, don't believe, exactly, the same! We, are unique, we, are human! One, of, a kind! Created, in the image, of God! Our brains, are supercomputers! We are beyond, anything else, in the universe! Existence, was bound, to create, us! It, was decided, before, our conception! Time shouted, it's power, when we, arrived! Specious, were drove, to extention! To create, for us, the perfect, climate! We complete, the cycle, of life! Share, in the blessings, of memories! Let family, always, remind, you, of hope! Fight, for what's, right! Aim, to do, better, then, you did, yesterday! It's, not about, being perfect! What man is? Reaching, for the stars, is about, not giving, up! It's about, learning, from mistakes! Letting life, teach you! Helping the hungry, in need! Better choices, create, better lives! Believeing, in the equality, of both, sexes! Male and female! Valueing, your freindships, for what, they are! Two people, making, the right, decision, is often, easier, than one! We need, to care, more, about, each other! Some, of us, would rather, vote, for more, jails, then schools! True, equality, means that, we listen! Respecting, human beings! No matter, the race, religion, or gender! We need, great leaders! Not, rich men, who are, fighting, only, or mostly, for certain, individuals! If I, don't hate, you, then why, can't, we both, sit down, at, the table, having, the conversation, about, our community! I stand, for any, man, that wishes, me truly, the best, as they, wish themselves, in life! Even as, a poet, who wishes, people whould, just read, my poems, and bless, me as, a poet, with, the finances, to survive! The most important, thing, is standing, for, the poor! As myself, who's voices, are not, always heard! The sons, who've, lost their, dad's, before, they ever, became, a man! The women, who lost, their husbands, the ones, they loved, the most, and the immigrant, searching, for freedom, in an, oppresive, world! When we believe, in each other, we all, can succeed! Putting, ourselves, to the side, for other, people, desperately, in need! If, all the world, pulled together, in love! We would, all eat together, with hugs! If, we sought out, for true, understaning, and stopped speaking, to listen, we, would hear, voices, of freedom, from, all of our, children! United, we stand, yet, together, we fall! I wish, happiness, and peace, to each, one, of us all!

I looked, for a friend! The dawn, sent, a wind! I claimed, my place, in the stars! A heart, that seems, to warm, hotter, for every, good cause ! My birth, to me, was forseen! The lord, sent, an angel! Mighty, for protection, keeping, me cleaned! Why, do, we hate, each other, without, a cause? In, a world, full, of love, there, would be, no killings, and police, guards! If, you heal, your brother, you, find favor, forever, with God! Why should, life, cost you? It's free! Full, of peace, grace, and love! Stars shine, from above! It, will not, hurt you, to feel! Joy spreads! Like, a field! Loving, children, is, an experience, unreal! The endless, joy, that exists, throughout, life, with, it's twists! Uplifts, spirits, beyond, mists! Secrets, spoke, by, a man, tells, us, God's has, a plan! Seek, and, you'll find! Blind, leading, the blind! Fall, in holes! Everytime! Consciouses, ignored, can, not heal! A nation, divided, won't build!
