The Log Brothas come to me I trying to save you all in despair no hope in sight you will not be spared. the evil man do catch up to you now is hellfire brimstones! But rest easy I am here, though great your mistakes do not despair I will preach to give you a new day. So he preached he did beseech each man to repent at length. But as he walked one could not help but see The Brotha Man was hinder that day by the log in his eyes but he could not see.

East Indian Delight!
East Indian Delight! I am King! Or Queen... On this island I'm a big thing. I sit on top my throne can never be taken. brilliantly blinding blazing in orange-yellow glows I eclipse them all. East to the West I am the best I captivate your tastebuds sugary lava I will erupt delightfully, explosively... pleasures untold, hypnotising - I do not boast - only truth I speak. Once you taste me you will be weak in your knees!
You Will Not be Forsaken
You Will Not be Forsaken Don't badda worry for the people wicked soon need mercy but dem a go dead! Trust God, do good, no matter where you trod God will give you what you deserve. Don't worry about the one who do evil to succeed don't get angry the wicked soon depart God know and see all let them plot they soon get caught and cut down small, small. Don't worry bout famine don't worry bout strife God will protect you He will save your life! But you see that one there? Fire and damnation! Like dust he shall blown away. Be generous, not crafty like the wicked and the evil committed, but make God hold you up. The righteous shall never be forsaken despite opposition they will never be taken because the good always speak righteous from start to finish he is pious. So fret not thyself, evil shall fall in on itself but the man who do good shall never be shook.
The Hikikomori Way
The Hikikomori Way Is there nothing more to being alive? Than to work and work and work. Until all our life force is used up and then we return to the dust. Will we die from the shame? We are not better my friends than the birds in the sky at least they fly before the most die. there must be more to our lives - I must know this. But to find out - the welcoming shadowy doubts - I must resist.
My One Confession
My One Confession In this dark hour when my life pride would devour, I know I can do nothing no matter what I own no matter my great feats I cannot heal without my Sustainer. I am industrious smart know all - But Father, I can do nothing be nothing, except by your grace.
Accept Accept you know but do not know. For when we don't know good things will come. When we look around the corner too soon We may fall into a trap too deep. There is no esculator up these mountains only the wind to carry us. Accept that you can't know and good things will follow.
