Love & Hate...

Love & Hate...

I once was a free flowing, outgoing, violent criminal
mind that is now DEAD!

I have caused so much pain and grief in so many lives
and barely even tried from you WC I won't lie or try to hide,

I have unleashed the beast with such ease
that the Romans would have been more
then pleased to see me, for them a treat to see me compete,

I carried hate around in my pocket like several carry
and pass on the HIV disease so ready to deceive,

Grey area in my blue eyes and straight darkness in my heart
when one was unaware I would show up with an unwanted surprise,

This is something I am not one bit proud of but completely ashamed
dwelling in the dark only causes pain,

When I wrote and shared Burnt Soul with WC that was the old me
enduring hates fire at a thousand degrees,

Today I am not the same man I have a new plan when I took Gods
righteous right hand, one day he will judge me and that I completely
understand, and I want to be proud of my new life in Christ I want to
pass on the love sent from above like Jesus has done for me,

In Burnt Soul when I cried out freedom Christ gave me a new life
new sight and darkness died in me,

I am fully aware of the battle that every man struggles with
good & evil, love & hate the black & white life or sometimes
caught in the grey, but it is a choice one or the other,

Which one will you choose today?
I thank God I found my way, darkness is dead in me
for you I guess we'll see but until then
for you I will pray...

Isn't it great that God gives us the ability to choose? We decide if we want to have a relationship with Him and if we do, He can change so much in us. It's truly amazing. This is a great piece James, I'm glad you got out of that dark place. :)
