'I Pray"

My lips belong not to me, I pray they don't deceive
I pray my tongue is only boastful, praising God, in which I believe
I pray I never strut about as if I know the way
I pray that God leads my spirit; I pray this night and day.
I pray I never offend a friend by speaking my words to fast
I pray my good outweighs my bad, and those are the memories that last
I pray our spirit speaks louder than our mouth, so that we never fight
I pray that people understand my truth comes only from His light
I pray for the angels God put around me, that I hear the words they’ve spoken
I pray I remain humble on this journey so our bonds will never be broken.

Black Queens (Excerpt)

 I often fantasize when she's not around
Of ways to caress her body, while we lay our loving down
Her skin is so brown and so tasty sweet
 From the top of her head to the bottom of her beautiful feet
The way she strolls into the room, lets me know it’s all good
Whether she’s wearing Victoria Secrets or Fredrick’s of Hollywood
You see I’m in love with her body, but even more so with her mind
Infatuated when I see her coming, and drained when I view her from behind
I know she was made perfect, voluminous with style and flair
Though she comes in many shades, straight hair, locks or braids
She’s oh so much more then “just her hair”
When I see my Queen appear, I’m truly mesmerized,
So I love her with passion while being sincere so she can hear the dove’s cries
As the sweat from her sexy body drips down on my chest....

Loved One

     Just because we consider some people to be our loved ones, doesn’t mean that we love all of the things that they’ve done. In this life I’ve been called everything from nice, kind, and giving to full of myself, bull headed, cocky, and arrogant. From guarded, shy and quiet to calculating , smart and even narcissistic.

    On my journey back home I’ve come to realize that every one of those perceptions (depending on how you choose to view me) was true at some point. We all are a special creation within our self and that breath God blew into us consists of every worldly quality that exists good and bad.
     Yet I’ve always known that my God made me just the way he wanted and so I tend not to apologize to man only to God for what I know to be my shortcomings. Talking and praying to my God will ensure the message he placed in my heart reaches all of those I may not.
     I also know that when it’s my time for departure I want to be remembered as a loved one by those I’ve touched, yet I must say that for me it’s just more important to be remembered as a loved one by my God.

Likes and dislikes of this world

The poor doesn't like the rich, the rich doesn't like the poor
The pimp only likes the trick, the trick only likes the whore
The whore don’t like the men, but she likes the money they spend
A lot of people don’t like Americans, still the Bullshit they like to defend
The user doesn’t like the dope, but he likes to escape the day
It’s the crutch he feels he needs to cope, yet he wouldn’t like to die that way
Most people don’t like the truth, prefer the darkness over the light
But they really like to deal in the lie, if it makes them seem more bright
The Christian doesn’t like the Muslim, the Muslim doesn’t like the Jews  
But they both like the concept of going to Heaven
And create Hell with some of the likes they choose.

Where In Hell Do I Start?

I don't walk through life feeling scared but I'm cautious
Keep my focus on winning yet I learn from my losses
But my mind says "In this life" son this you can bet
That nothing will ever turn green if it doesn’t get wet
So I accept the rain when it falls on my face
Ask how I deal with the pain, I just put it in its place
I recognize the light when there's a dark cloud
Try to focus on peace when everything seem loud
If I've messed up again, I get depressed this way
Need relief from my sins I look to my God and pray
Who else can I talk to when those around are full of shit?
Cause spitting a few words won't put out a fire when it's lit
But I know one thing for all those with the comments
I mean the ones on the fence with no spiritual sense
Who are you to correct me, tell me how I should be
When everything seen is not what every man can see
When I really need your help will you even be there
Or just shake your head and tell me how much you care
When the grass gets so thick it blocks out the sun
I try to run so fast yet nowhere have I run
Try to sleep at night, but my mind won't rest
Try to breathe real deep to ease the pain in my chest
Wake up in the morning praying to see some light
Praying God will forgive me for the things I didn't do right
Because I try every day, Lord knows in my heart
I want to get back home, but where in hell do I start?

What do we really know?

     What makes today’s civilization think we know any more than those great civilizations’ of the past?  Fact is we still can’t even figure out the great accomplishments of the remote past.
     The questions we ask today about where we come from, where we’re headed, how we should live, and for what reasons should we die are age old questions. It’s quite obvious that the answers have always been based on the belief of a higher entity regardless of one’s religious preference or lack thereof.
    As I think about this, I can’t help but remember the elementary school exercise in which the teacher whispered something in the ear of the first student and the process was repeated throughout the class until it reached the last student. The lesson was simply to teach us how the original story changes when passed on from one to another!
     What mankind has always known is that we are born into this world, and die on this earth. This is simply because while living on this earth we have all stood witness to these phenomena’s.  It’s ironic that our belief from the very beginning has always been the MOTHER of our faith in our FATHER.

She Never Knew

She never knew that taking his hand, came at such a great risk
Or when he asked could he be her man, he meant only with his fist
Or when she looked in the mirror, she would no longer see her smile
Just a cracked tooth, or black eye's, was the only image she'd see for a while.
She never knew when he said "let's go out on a date"
It would turn into "Bitch you ain't going nowhere"
Or when he smiled and said "baby you look so beautiful in that dress
It would turn into "Bitch go do something with your hair
She just remembered him whispering all those sweet "NOTHINGS" close in her ear,
Back then she thought "Damn" this is the best feeling on earth
So she gave him everything she could possible give, but found out
Those "NOTHINGS" he whispered, too him was all she was really worth.

Devils LOVE

The Devils' number one "LOVE" is "HATE", and he loves to give to us on credit because he knows the return payment is so enormous.

Temporary Stop

     Death is only of this world, for our stay here is only temporary. In that context the end here is inevitable, but the "New Beginning" is what we need to focus on for that's what our choices in this temporary setting will ultimately dictate!  -Thomas L. White III-
