PostSubject: From the pen to the pen   Sat Jun 22, 2013 11:06 am

Emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually
The world locked me up, and threw away the key
My heart, mind, body and soul...no longer me
Lost in a self-imposed penitentiary...





The demons were laughing while watching me weep
Probably robbing me deep in my sleep
Stealing my feelings of right versus wrong
and filling with sadness my funeral song
Myself and the world were an unholy marriage
"Just Married, Just Buried" on my black hearse and carriage
I've learned that many demons come in many different forms
and the angels always warn me of the oncoming storms
but listening and hearing are two different things
I heard the melancholy piper and the pain that he brings
Singing to the sting of yet another teardrop
Somebody slow the sadness...and make the madness stop
The funny thing about pain is that we become numb to it
A cold heart becomes a portal and the demons come through it
I went from following the darkness to being led blind
and I knew I was lost when I couldn't find my mind
Knock, knock, knockin' on my front door
but I was too afraid to answer, I didn't know me anymore
"Go away!"..."Go away!"..."Can I make it any clearer?!"
Screaming at the reflection of the dead man in the mirror...
Creating my own rain and having no umbrella
No music to my misery, singing of death a cappella
A kaleidoscope of no hope viewing the colors of fear
Spin, little beads, and draw the enemy near
and when it seemed that I had fallen to the bottomless fire
I dreamed I'd been redeemed and God told me fear is a liar
For the first time in a long time, since the days of my youth
I heard...and I listened...and I believed in the truth
A single moment of faith erased a lifetime of fear
as I realized I wasn't alone, that through it all...Christ was here
I heard God's word as it was spoken to me
that there was hope for the broken, the broken me I used to be
I felt a soft "I love you" from my Savior's lips
flow through my heart, to my mind, into my fingertips
transcribing and describing; Christ is now my shelter in the rain
and how faith, hope and love overcame the fear, doubt and pain...





From the pen to the pen, becoming who I'm meant to be
writing of the light that's alive in me
I pray that I convey the love and grace that set me free
and that when I come into your view, the Lord is who you truly see...

Love this whole concept...nice!
Take this to the prisons, they need to hear this in there, from the perspective you've been gifted and blessed with!
Spit this rhyme on a you tube video post!

Well done brother. I found in literal prison that true freedom comes from the inside and that is given only by Christ.I agree with eagles, prison ministry is vital and biblical. Thanks for sharing, loved this line especially:

A cold heart becomes a portal and the demons come through

Right on. I never learned my lesson while physically confined. It's a trip, 'cause now lookin' back on it, God was being as straightforward as possible every time I got locked up. On my release day, every time, as soon as I walked through that gate, it was like "Look...you were just a prisoner, and now you are free." Time after time, yo. "You were just a prisoner, now you are free." Oh, amen to the patience of the Lord, yo. No doubt. Unfortunately, due to all the things that I did to make myself a prisoner, I got shot down for Prison Ministry. It was a bummer, too, because I didn't find out until the morning of my first trip. Hey, God has something else for me to do. Word. And guess what? It's gonna be awesome!

Hurray!! Love it when the light splits the darkness!

Not just words....when the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!

Praise God Blue
