    “18 Years”

    I searched my soul
    for the truth to unfold
    The mystery concerning the Christ
    It said, “you my son
    are the victim of one
    Elaborate conspiracy; a heist

    Take a good long look
    at your holy book
    You’ll find something truly absurd
    Thru someone’s intention
    Jesus is not mentioned
    For 18 years, not one single word

    Then my soul dictated
    it was Jesus who stated
    “Know the Truth, it will set you free”
    Yet if 18 years are missing
    somebody did some twisting
    Someone didn’t want me to see

    At the age of 12 he traveled
    and began to unravel
    The mysteries of life and death
    From 12 til he was thirty
    he was strong and sturdy
    Teaching truth about the Holy Breath

    So the question in my mind
    if you would be so kind
    As to indulge me in my brief bit of glory
    WHY would 18 years
    of his blood, sweat and tears
    Be extracted from His Holy Story

    And when the answer came
    freedom did reign
    It actually set my soul free
    For it finally revealed
    what had long been concealed
    simply, Jesus was African like me…

    I said Jesus was African like me!!! ;)

    Comparing years of the Lord's glory hidden, to our accomplishments often being swept under a rug, as though the time and effort doesn't matter. Food for thought. You posed this in such a way that makes me wonder as well. Keep your flows coming.

    Poet,

    Don't be apprehensive, that is like self-censoring yourself. You have things that need to be said and people who want to lisen. Believe that always.

    yeah Angel,
    it does make you think, i've asked several people what happened to Jesus after he turns 12 up until he turns 30
    cause ain't nothin' in the Bible about it at all

    so i asked myself and this is what came out
    thanks for feelin' it
