Be Still…

Dusk dawns on your heart’s floor
Your soul, sold to mould
Pale, a murky house without a door
Afflicted with daunting taunts
You want to die, pain haunts
Coz you’re running out of bullets
On the battlefront

I’ve seen you walk weak
In the red light district
Oh I was there too
Lost in these dimly lit strict streets
Chasing after flesh in sassy slits
Hungry, vulnerable to fallen wits
Rounding in a whirlwind
Where peace speaks least

I’ve seen you write that suicide note
Dreaded that rope
That would rip off your throat
That night you held a knife
When your folks fervidly fought

Those drugs untaught you to live licitly
Nights of staggering
Swollen tummy robbed your simplicity
Swimming in lethal lethargy
It’s dark
But you’re beaming with negative energy

I know your struggle
How it feels to walk naked
Tempted to die wasted
Owning a Bible
But with pages rusted
Oh how sweet sex tasted
But in the end
Left your body guilt infested
Bitterness inside you
What the devil invested

I know how it feels
To lift a short hand to heaven
Standing tall in the heathen Really live rejected

But get going in your fight
Morning is near, don’t be dejected
There is a God who keeps you protected
You may not hear His voice
But He never leaves you neglected
There is a Christ who saves
He will hold your hand firm
Like He held mine
And I accepted
He will lift you to higher heights
Among the best selected

Bless you brother to Judah’s Lion
And cherish thee Daughter of Zion
So be still, child
Be still
And know He is God

It is finished!!
