The ground shook
The sky turned black
The sound is deafening.
Each night we pray
To live another day
And each day we try to dodge the bullets.
They drop their bombs
And when the smoke clears
The stench of death lingers in the air.
An innocent child
A heart that is wild
We just want you to survive and see you grow
Be still my love, our love we will show
And all will be well in time my dear
I pray to God to wash away my fear.
We cannot wait to see you
Know we are here for you
The dark cloud may have made us blue
But know, we will and forever will love you.
They thank their lucky stars
But I have none of that
I work hard and I pray
I do not wish worries away
I do what I can whenever the challenge comes up
Because no lucky star can ever get me through it, aside from myself
These are my hands,
They will grow old,
They won’t forever look grand,
But they will never cease to fold…
These are my knees,
They will buckle someday,
Yet they will not cease,
To kneel before you everyday
These are my feet,
They won’t always be strong,
But it will perform a feat,
Walking away from all that’s wrong
This is me,
As sinners can be
But I will glorify Your name, always
As You are the reason why I am a winner
Do you hear me on the other side?
Can you see the tears I cried?
I say nothing but feel everything
I met a guy who is not perfect
Yet he could have been God sent had he been mine
Friends we became, friends we are
And I am okay with that, it’s all fine
He could be the one
I could only pray I find a guy like him
He is the one to someone
I wish it were me though
Oh I wish it were
He is God fearing
Loves his family
Thinks of the future
One I can bully
He tells me as it is
Though it may hurt
But I see the truth and he only means well
Like any friend would
If I fall in love with him
I pray, that he be blessed each day
Because I know he can never be mine
Only mine as a friend
To hold for a time
I pray I find a guy like him
A guy like my closest boy friend
I wander in this world
I have not been as faithful as I should have been
I live my life not minding where my soul will go
When time is up for me
I go on and I pretend
To be the faithful one
Yet I know that deep within
I am a sinful being and have neglected my religious duty
Yet God, the kind father that he is, still showers me His blessings
He still listens to me, hear my prayers
Despite me not taking much time to spend with Him
He sends His message through
He calls out to me and makes me feel loved
The kind of love no one else can give
My soul wanders through this world
And He waits for me to come back
To come home to Him at last
Is God still showing me love
As He looks down from above?
He silently sheds a tear
as He longs to be near.
To be His child is my true calling,
So why am I continually falling?
The Sinner’s eternally cry,
For their broken wings just cannot fly.
Now I long to change…that’s what I say,
But why is it that I won’t pray?
What is it going to take
To finally make me break?
Where is that longing fire
That showed my true hearts desire?
What will be the final cost
If I forever am lost?
I still am crying out to be free,
But is this my hearts true plea?
I have it all right in front of me,
Still my covered eyes cannot see.

Every night before I sleep
I look up to the Heavens and try not to weep.
For my heart is full
with the Lords will,
My strength, my health & pockets full.
He has blessed me every day
Since birth till today.
Thank you Lord
cause now I can afford,
to testify and praise you
Precious, love and True-

The Earth shook me
Almost threw me aside
My life did not flash before my eyes
But it was then that I realized I may not make it.
However, the Lord did plan it that way
He made me realize my existence
and that I need to keep my faith
I am not afraid for I know You are with me
You had to shake the Earth for me to take notice
But I hear you
Loud and clear
