I Choose To Inspire

As I sit here and write, I realize
I have the power to help or break people.
I try to inspire with my messages.
As well as, wake people up from their sleep.

Lately, I’ve been trying to relay
God’s love and the need to be saved.
Encouraging others to get to know Him and His Word.

Sharing stories upon stories about
where I’ve been and all the action packed
emotions and feelings behind
the decisions I’ve made in the past.

For many years, they had been dark.
I had gotten accustomed to feeling sorry for myself.
Using excuses upon excuses about this and that.
Procrastinating when I should’ve been taking action.

I failed to live in truth and honesty
by being lukewarm in my journey,
merging the world with that of God’s.
Thinking I could serve two masters.

I didn’t want to give up the music, the friends,
the adultery, or anything that made me “happy”.
Afraid of how people would perceive me
if I wasn’t moving along with the crowd.

That was a lesson I took forever to learn.
I had to snap out of the trance.
I had to walk away from many things
I had grown to love and accept all of my life.

Entertaining Spirits

I’ve written about my experiences
with depression, love and lust,
and many, many other topics
whether they were of God or of the devil.

Many times, I was not in my right mind to distinguish.
I just went with the flow of emotions and feelings.
Looking back, the majority of those episodes
should have been rebuked;
they should not have been entertained.
