Only God Can Judge Me

Only God Can Judge Me

A Poem by Jerome F Knox III pseudonym Nefarious J. Dorsey
"

Although Rap music is a part of Hip Hop it lacks the lyrical potency and messages that Hip Hop created from 1985-2003.

"
Only God Can Judge Me
Immaculate Conception
Was supposed to change
The direction of mankind
But I find that I am still blind
As life is unkind
See,
I have been separated from thee
Only the divine can forgive me
As the true vine has been
Severed many times before
Therefore, the lessons are tougher
To ignore
Revelations 3:20 says he's
Knocking at my door
But I can't let him in
Because the bloodstains
Are on the floor
I still remain in pain
As I am trying to endure the storm
But moving on is a chore
As regrets are harder to forget
And ignore
Still, no one likes getting wet
I am hoping for better weather
(Hook)
Only God Can Judge Me.
Not You
Not man
Understand
Only God Can Judge Me
Can't You See that it’s a fact
There’s no hope for me
I am heading straight to hell
Can't you tell that?
Only God Can Judge Me
Many only fear the lion
When they hear him roar.
But he's more violent
When he's silent that's for sure
So, because I am rotten to the core
I can't even get an encore
No more
No standing ovation
No motivation
Eternal damnation
Is what I am facing
There’s no erasing my sins
Then again
Am I truly forgiven for
The way I have been living
I know that
You reap what you sow
So,
It is no use in refuting the truth
Meaning it is useless
Pointless
So why refute this?
I am not new to this
I've been through this
You knew this
That the lessons that I
Learned from the stove
Were a blessing
Because they
Didn't leave a mark
Because what I was taught
Didn't allow me to get burned
So, what I got cooking in the pot
Made me a lot of money
As I never got high off
My own supply
Nor traded a drug for a drug
No love for the snitches or b*****s
I got baseball bat for the rats
As it is a fact that I
Dropped so many bodies in
the ditches
I am still vicious
Went from rags to riches
Made millions from my kitchen
Still, I am wishing for absolution but
the damage has already been done
As I now need to protect my only son
From my sins
Amen
Amen
Amen
As I try to make amends
I am left remembering that
(Hook)
Only God Can Judge Me
Not You
Not man
I am sinking in quicksand
So, I need you to
Understand just where I am
I am heading straight to hell
Can't you tell that
Only God Can Judge Me
See
As kid I did several bids
Holding onto jail bars
For the s**t I made in
Mason jars
Still the Feds want me dead
Not only for what I've done
But for what I've said
Still fiends are fiending
Digging out what I am shoveling
Still recovering they are
Discovering
That I am still crazy as f**k
So, you better duck
Don't press your luck because
Only God Can Judge Me
Not You
Not man
I am sinking in quicksand
So, I need you to
Understand just where I am
I am heading straight to hell
Can't you tell that
Only God Can Judge Me
See,
You can't be mad at lemons
Because I made lemonade
You can’t hate grapes
Because Jesus turned
Them into wine
Or mad at the fork because
Someone got
Pork from the pig
You can't be mad at the
Water for allowing
Jesus to walk on it or for
Baking soda turning cocaine
Into crack
In fact
l can't fault anyone
For the s**t I did
Before Christ
B.C.
and After Death
A. D.
There will be nothing left
Except for me
To wait and accept my fate
Because in the end
The opinions of men
Can't forgive me of my sins
Only God Can Judge Me
Not You
Not man
I am sinking in quicksand
So I need you to
Understand just where I am
I am heading straight to hell
Can't you tell that
Only God Can Judge Me
