The days are slick
Traps are set
I’m not a gambler
but on this I’ll bet

That I’m covered 
all the way around
HE has never 
and will never let me down

I have to worry about me
and stay out of the way
So I drop down to my knees
and simply pray

Get my back LORD
Remind me today 
That if the enemy comes
YOU will get in the way

And for that I’m grateful
Blessed and relieved
You do a better job 
Of protecting me than me

It's been a while since I posted a thought
Wonder why they've remained and never got lost
Trying to understand the growth I know
And that it didn't come sooner like 20 years ago

The lesson wouldn't have been learned
I wouldn't have understood the test
That's given before the lesson
Script flipped nonetheless

But I am thankful I got it before it's too late
That I can share with those in their youth
Being alive is a blessing not a rehearsal
My time on earth is the proof

Your one go round is all you need
If you pray and plan, and plant the seed
So here's to revelation and clarity
Understanding life has no parity

We all get different challenges
and we all get different blessings
Just pray and accept the outcomes
And no you can't prepare for the testing

Just live and learn
See and discern
Be on fire but don't burn
Accept the bad when it's your turn
And let your passion just churn
Then pass the knowledge on...

I remember seeing you the first time but then I saw you again
You, were a ballet of thoughts dancing in my head
Your voice was an orchestra of words
speaking a symphony to my wonderment 
had me wondering what it meant
Like a song I couldn’t play
So I just stared at the cover photo

Then you smiled and the rainbow had life
brilliant by design
but I was even more impressed by your mind
Intellectual stimulation
Negative thoughts took a vacation, in that moment
Your strength is of legend
fueled by survival, constantly in revival
Look at you now

I saw you the first time but then I saw you yet again
HiDef nothing left to the imagination
To say your style found my appreciation
isn’t lost on this man
So I pressed play on thoughts
Watched with admiration while I fought
What came to the surface
If I confessed in the moment at that time
what would be the purpose 

Fast forward; road blocks and barriers of past times now gone by
They’ve now been torn down with new buildings taking my place; 
you could call them a replace
They may be looking but it’s no longer at my face

But I am still who you saw the first time and then saw again
And to know your view brought me into focus
means my picture was clear
Thank you for the whisper in my ear
Now where do we go from here?
Shhhhh don’t tell anybody
But me

Make this the year you TALK and DO

Don’t just talk about working out, DO IT
Don’t just talk about opening a business DO IT
Don’t just talk about helping the less fortunate DO IT
Don’t just talk about mentoring DO IT
Don’t just talk about burying the hatchet DO IT
Don’t just talk about uplifting friends DO IT
Don’t just talk about taking a trip DO IT
Don’t just talk about buying a home DO IT
Don’t just talk about volunteering DO IT
Don’t just talk about changing your diet DO IT
Don’t just talk about earning a promotion DO IT
Don’t just talk about following Christ DO IT
Don’t just talk about stopping Black on Black Crime DO IT
Don’t just talk about working together DO IT
Don’t just talk about donating DO IT
Don’t just talk about being positive DO IT
Don’t just talk about what you’re going to do this year DO IT
Why? Because you may not get another chance…

Make this the year of T A D 
Talk and Do
And everything you talk about doing 
In 2016 I hope it comes true

If it’s positive…

I have to keep moving
Petal to the metal and then some
Moving onward and upward and then some
Hitting the brakes means I get none of what I say I want

Future becomes the past all to quick
Living in the present that was once the future
Although tomorrow isn't promised
I have to plan for its arrival

Looking down the road I get a glimpse
Enough to give me hope
On the wing I soar
Hanging by a rope

I'd like to fly away
Doesn't matter what they say
Unless they're going my way
Then lets ride

I can't let go of go
got to keep riding even if it's slow
I need to see whats ahead
One day the car will be parked
and I'll be read, in an obituary

So let me add lines to the pages
Fill up the pages with life
He never let go of go, is what it will read
Still holding on in flight to paradise

Never letting go of go...

I may be Broken, 
But I'm under repair
Cause a change is coming 
Since I changed my prayer

Where he wants me to go
I want to be there
And I know it’s coming
Since I changed my prayer

And it’s not about me
But what’s in his plan
I was in it for me, 
But I didn’t understand
His plan is forever, 
Beyond my belief
I'm just so thankful 
HIS plan includes me

He hears my needs
Took away my despair
Told me I was covered
When I changed my prayer

Now I know what matters
So with you this I'll share
Some amazing things happen
When you change your prayer
