Menacing...confined...convicted...secluded...

Shaved head...sagged jeans...pierced up...tattooded...



Did I make that last word up...yeah, I probably did

but it doesn't change the perception that you have of me, kid

Don't judge people with a glance, without givin' them a word

over the way that they look, maybe some things that you've heard

and don't assume those first two lines go together forever

like birds of a feather, for Christ is far too clever

Sooner or later, all can be saved

as we right our wrongs towards the path that God paved

The things I did when I was lost I wouldn't do today

and if you think I look like trouble go ahead and walk the other way

but if you give me a moment and maybe talk a little while

I can almost guarantee you'll walk away with a smile

Mentally, physically, emotionally free

Christ died for all his children, and that includes me

I now stand as a child of God's infinite glory

and if you judge a book by its cover you might miss a beautiful story

Some middle chapters may be ugly due to some things I've done before

but please don't judge me by my past, because I don't live there anymore



Shaved head...sagged jeans...pierced up...tattooded...

Beautiful...released...forgiven...included...

Excellent. Let's face it... people pre-judge and pigeon-hole. It is the Church's job to get beyond partiality to the heart of things, as James has said in his letter. Unchurched people will notice this. Some join the family!

When i read your work, i feel like i know you.
When i've spoken to you on the phone it confirms you are exactly as you write and as real as anyone can get. Your words are the life you've lived and are living, etched in hearts not easily removed nor easy to forget.
But..."tatooded?"
Makes me want to tatoody, whatever that is...
You'll have to ask a "tatoodist"
