Your Memories

Your Memories

Be careful what you do
or your memories could haunt you.
Don't listen to what they say - 
"never mind,mistakes can happen anyday".
Soon you may begin to think
one slip is not a big thing
until you're drowning
In the memories of your sins.
Then that mistake
born of ignorance
becomes your king
and decrees a life of suffering.

And you must work hard
toil and call upon the Lord
to provide you a peace offering 
that will soothe those memories
that threaten to do you in
and stick with you
when your skin is paper thin
and your bones need oiling.
So be careful that you do everything
to protect your memories
from being your jailer
that condemn and torture.

You Decide

You Decide

You decide where the tide flows
what goes
and what's really for show.
You decide that you are not here
to scratch and scrape
just to be someone's slave
except God's.
You decide 
faith or fear
one must be killed
with the spear of defiance
and a lot of reliance 
on the One who is the I Am.
You decide
your voice
and the choice to do what's right
not what is good.
You decide 
life is worth death
to the theft of your joy
and the you they can never conceive.
