  1.     

When I Became a Man

When I became a man
I put away childish things
But before I became a man
I didn’t always fit the shoes of a King
I was a child trying to find his way
The toys I played with kept my eyes occupied
And left my eyes in a lustful boyish frenzy
My playmates had long legs, short skirts and soft skin
They cared enough to lie down and wallow with me often
Jezebel turned out to be my very best friend
I’d look in her eyes before ever seeing the sunrise
Every time I paid her a visit and slept in

Before I became a man
I saw how God made Adam from dust
So likewise I tried to make love out of lust
I didn’t know any better
I was taught by example
“Let your mouth spit game, but never let your heart say much, ”
I treated his daughters like beauty pageant contestants
There would be zero return on their investments
Proverbs 31 was never a criterion for my selection
Keep in mind this was before I became a man

Before I became a man
I would unlock my curse and throw away the key
I allowed anger to set up a construction company inside
Bitterness never rested
It left no time wasted
Whether Father loved me or not
All I could regurgitate was hatred
I became allergic to showing any form of compassion

Before I became a man
I was much shorter
Not just in height but in spiritual insight
Because I never had a picture
Nor did Pixar ever have a film
Showing me what God’s man really looked like

But when I became man
Oh, When I became a man
I learned how to love Father God right back
Even though I’m good at falling short of the glory
I reflect on my story
Through my praise I’ll self publish a testimony

When I became a man
I learned how to cry
Because I’m not ashamed of my tears
Since I became a man
I’m not longer afraid of the dark
I’ll wrap my hands around James 5: 16
Confess, Pray, and Heal my Heart

I have discovered something
That there are medicinal qualities
Right down the corridor of introspection
When I became a man
I learned how to love her
My Esther, My Ruth
I learned how to honor her like she was Jesus’ mother
Because one day she’ll be pregnant
With the seed that will transport my legacy
So that my God and my name will both have longevity
Even after they bury me

I could not love her before
Because I was not able
My insecurities and my perfectionism had me
Looking in on the next best player
That was checking in at the scorer’s table
How could I possibly be her covering?
When I was an umbrella with holes in it
But I learned to love her like I ought to
Because I want Him to be my Father and my Father-in-law
Since that’s his daughter

When I became a man
I learned to love my brother
I’ll share my heart, my hug and my hallelujah
Because a hug and a hallelujah without my heart
Leaves room for his spirit to respond with “I never knew you”
I became a man so that when he became a man
He would know a man
Who picked up the gospel and put the toys away

When I became a man

My Vision

HE STARES BUT CAN'T FOCUS HIS VISION

THE PAIN CUTS LIKE AN INCISION,

DEEP DOWN WITH PRECISION

HE HAS ONE DECISION, WILL HE FOLOW?

REPRESS HIS FEELINGS, FILLED WITH ACHE YET SO HOLLOW

SORROW IS ETCHED INTO HIS FACE

WHAT HE WOULD'NT GIVE FOR A SINGLE EMBRACE

WITHOUT A TRACE, HIS EMOTIONS ARE DONE

A GAME HE PLAYS THAT CAN'T BE WON

WITH A GUN, HE PLANS TO END THE VISCIOUS PUN

ALL HE WANTS TO DO IS FLEE

LOOKS TO THE SKY AND SCREAMS, 'WHY ME? '

I CAN’T LOOK AT PHOTOGRAPHY,

MOMENTS OF THE PAST THAT IS NOT HE

WHAT HE CAN'T SEE, IS HOW HIS MINDS BENT

HOW CAN A MAN BECOME SO DEFIENT?

NO WORDS ESCAPE FROM THE HORROR SO SILENT

HIS THOUGHTS TURN PHYSICAL, A SCENE SO VIOLENT

HIS DEMONS EMERGE TRIUMPHANT

HANDS START TO SHAKE, PAINS DESENT

ONE BLAST SEALED HIS FATE, DEATH HITS LIKE A COLLISION

HIS REGRET COMES TO LATE, BLOOD SEEPS LIKE CORRISION

HE STARES BUT CAN'T FOCUS HIS VISION

A Soldier- Dedicated to Nicholas Shelton

There is discipline in A Soldier you can see it when he walks,
There is honor in A Soldier you hear it when he talks.
There is courage in A Soldier you can see it in his eyes,
There is loyalty in A Soldier that he will not compromise.
There is something in A Soldier that makes him stand apart,
There is strength in A Soldier that beats from his heart.
A Soldier isn't a title any man can be hired to do,
A Soldier is the soul of that man buried deep inside of you.
A Soldier's job isn't finished after an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week,
A Soldier is always A Soldier even while he sleeps.
A Soldier serves his country first and his life is left behind,
A Soldier has to sacrifice what comes first in a civilian's mind.
If you are civilian - I am saying this to you..... next time you see A Soldier remember what they do.
A Soldier is the reason our land is 'Home of the free',
A Soldier is the one that is brave protecting you and me.
If you are A Soldier - I am saying this to you.....
Thank God for EVERY SOLDIER Thank God for what YOU do!

I thought about you Mr. Shelton, I figured this is the least I could do to thank you my friend.

One Giant Leap

Trusting isn't always easy

When you've been hurt in the past

So let's combine our scars together

Let's align our stars forever

We know enough to make it last
 


It's one giant leap for the both of us

It's one giant leap

But if we both jump together, we'll land on our feet

It's one giant leap

So if you'll give up your abuse

I'll take my head out of this noose

Staring up at that old moon

I know this couldn't happen too soon
So take a chance it's gonna take some time

It's one giant leap for the both of us

It's one giant leap

But if we both jump together, we'll land on our feet

It's one giant leap

Don't look down, don't let go
 


It's one giant leap for the both of us

It's one giant leap

But if we both jump together, we'll land on our feet

It's one giant leap

Jump with me
