PostSubject: I am the thief   Sun Mar 10, 2013 12:09 pm

I stretched my arms wide and cried a single plea

"When you come into your kingdom, Jesus, remember me..."

and the Lord reminded me he already paid my price

"Child, your day will come, when we walk in paradise..."



I am the rebel, I am the thief

I am but a moment in a life so brief

I am the silence shattered by a scream

A mile high and falling in the middle of a dream

I am the future generated by my past

and today will last forever if that's how long I make it last

I am destruction, I need no instruction

A legend in my own mind and I need no introduction

I am a product of a world gone mad

and the misery within me is the pain I've always had

I'm constantly reminded, time and time again

that I get lost to the world when I walk amongst men

for we are the bandits, the racketeers

We're the thieves in the night as the light disappears

I am corrupted by societal ways

one way or another, for the rest of my days

I bring the pleasure and I bring the pain

and the pain of the pleasure is what drives me insane

Or is it the pleasure of the pain...either way I'm lost

to self-gratification at any cost

I'm a self-inflicted victim to every worldly addiction

yet I am precious...I am beautiful...I am saved by crucifixion



I am a dead man walking through time and space

swerving, undeserving, yet Christ offers me grace

It is the truest of truths, my heart's greatest belief

Jesus Christ loves me, even though I am the thief...

WOW....just...WOW...SPEECHLESS!!!
HAD TO READ THIS OUTLOUD TO JODY!!
POWERFUL SLAM PIECE!!
Trying to crawl back up on my feet...dizzy...everything's spinning...

(...did someone just drop a flowerpot from out of a windowsill onto my head?)

"hello 911 operator?"

"please state the nature of your emergency?"

"i wish i could..."

"i've fallen an' i can't get up!"

"no...not 911...call in the S.W.A.T. team,
the A-team, C.H.I.P.S.,
STARSKY AND HUTCH,
NAVY SEALS...
RAMBO!!

Not flattery BRO', jus' fact...you got a special gift from The Lord,
Glory be to God!

Think you stole some hearts for The Lord, with this little gem.

What a clear depiction of the tawdry realms of the flesh. All that mess and still beautiful in God's eyes. Psalm 130: 3,4.

Surely we identify with what you have said so well. And the thief had only that chance. No time for other religious baggage.

Excellent poem! Thank you rhyma...
