Too Late

 You make me fold my hands and pray to the lord

Let me take this time as I post to the board

 and hang pictures of my idols

Only my best rest there

And they will never in clued you

You screwed up too bad

You had your chance now it’s too late


My soul rings a treble in the water

Its youth is flattered

By the glorious waves of continuity

This everlasting fountain

Is to blame for my loss of  shame

I’m one with myself

And I reign forever as the water

So aqua and truly the queen of me

Is the perfection I wish to be.


My passions take me past my critical affairs

And lurks beneath my skin a pair of hands

Keeping my heart beating

This pressure that I bear is also in you

We receive and view passion differently

But we are all the same

Made of blood and bone

And my tone might come off

A little honed in on you to step up

And match me at my eyes

You cant stay down on your knees all day long

Anymore

It’s time for you to start redirecting and reaching

And perfecting this art of your life

You manage to have a testimony

Can you also be damaged by a lonely?

Recover and feel projected of strength

Erect yourself and stand like you mean it

Today and say it is in your blood that you can meet with

Adversity in the eye and say

Watch this!

Because I have Christ.


Targeted

My position plays me into

A description only few

Can mark of

Tender memories

Pleasant anomalies

Programmed

For a consumption of life

We are handed a target

And it’s our job to find it

In action

So is it up to me to hit it

Or do I commit to just viewing

What meets my eye

In a simple try

To hold onto my ego

Is it most reigning in my past

Or is it always set in the future

How true it would seem to me

To be always challenged

Seeing where I might be

Shall I let go of what holds me back

Or is it leading me into a place

That I once met with the dice?


Resilience

In hopelessness Is the power to reform

My thoughts

Creating what I want to think

Is the best way to live

Determining what possesses me

Cures me of my fashionable

Invisibility

I love so I stay strong

With God

He pushes me to the edge

With infallible questions

And persists I dig deeper

To institute more inspiration for the future

He says, “today is over, so prepare for tomorrow.”

And in this I find peace

That meets me with passion

To exist

This is who I want to be

I am this

But I cant see today

Maybe tomorrow I will discover what I am


You take me out of the depths of despair

 to stir in me

what clearly reassures my abilities

as splendid

I’m writing day and night

For what seems to be right

Hoping to monument my sight

Of what was once a fright

With all my might

Can I take me to new heights?

All of me being in a flight

Of what was once that created my plights

Also created my abilities to forgo my next insight

Offer me a tight

Hope and let it soar in quite

A satisfaction that makes me tell satan to bite

Me in this new light


The dark brings the solstice

In terms of equating

Something innate

As much the same

As sacrificing one’s pain

Recollecting messages from above

Never comes from pleasure

But in much measure

Is the reason

Im afforded appeasement

You think your power is great

Let me tell you

In such a maze as these days

Creates

Such time is met

In bed

On the other side

Of what content is

So much comes to mind

In what is greater than I

I hope you lose this

As faith finds you

In new attire

From a place much higher

Resembling a taste that cures

All projects

This I now marked as

What was once

Complacent

Now seems adjacent

To a fact of rhyming

And skimming

I say much comes in an art

Same as dying

The dark brings as much glory

As the light

Without what blares

How do we dare

Counter what exceeds

To meet our needs

This is why I talk to God.
