You Are Not My Enemy I see you bleeding just like me In anguish you scream! Just like me. You too have dreams like me too. I see you in me and me in you. You are not my enemy and that is the key to restoring your humanity in me. The Darkness would have it not so it gives strive, hate and pain creates a wall and locks us into unbroken chains. But I see you and know this to be true You are not my enemy. Me and you, me and you? Our love can be heavenly.
On Being Saved I got baptized at nineteen But God is just now saving me. The water that fateful day did not clense me but hard won sorrow like a river washes away the dirt and decay. I stepped on the world stage almost drowned but God pulled me back by my kinky hairs and counted each strand to make sure they were still there. Now I must come correct. I really tried to be perfect, but with each stroke a piece broke and the wood had to be refashioned. Pillaged by too much Arrogance left half dead by the way side I now wear the cloak of humility. Nineteen years, I was wet behind the ears, now I am driven by a burning Holy fire. Disrobed , Transformed, I stand changed by my perfet imperfections.
