    I made a vow to God
    unknowingly
    or I didn't realize that's
    how He'd take what I had said
    in my foolish attempt to
    justify my sins
    though I spoke sincerely
    this "vow" this declaration
    of my true intentions
    this covenant that He holds me to
    and I learn that it started way
    before then
    when I told Him I was tired
    of sinning and being in the game
    barely 21 and seen it all
    I asked Him to send me somebody
    so He sent me somebody
    and I knew the moment our eyes
    met that it was she that He sent
    to me
    that she was of my destiny
    so much has happened since
    all those years ago
    yet still He holds me to
    this covenant
    and not much about it makes
    any sense to me anymore
    yet I find that
    He does not relent
    and since then I have seen
    a world of malice
    mountains of lies
    and oceans of evil that
    I couldn't begin to try
    and wade through
    I ask the Lord what He wants from me
    I can't make someone be with me
    if they don't want to be
    and I can't pretend to feel
    something I don't feel (the fakeness)
    how anything other than real
    does not appeal
    I don't find it poetic
    and I sit here wondering why
    He has allowed my life to be
    sabbotaged and pilfered
    wondering what part of all the
    subsequent lies I've heard
    I'm s'posed to love
    and why He has allowed those
    relevant powers that be
    to hold me in an invisible
    prison born of much resources
    and faulty perceptions
    when all I want is what everyone
    else in life wants
    life liberty and the pursuit of happiness
    I can't keep up with the million and one
    stories that circulate
    and I can't say whose earthly idea
    it was that I should write some fake love poem
    based on an ocean of untruthes
    I wonder what good is truth than
    the truth is I realized the "true" and few wrongs
    I did way back when and I remember the more
    than 10 years of trying to right those wrongs
    while watching more wrong be added moment by moment
    I could write many books on the evils I have seen
    and how certain powers that be
    dug for ways to smear my name
    and found puppets to use in this pursuit
    and a bandwagon full of willing haters
    to bring to life a grand mountain
    from a molehill in that expert way
    they get down
    so now I see the source and the accumulation
    of hatred
    the snowball to avelanche
    the gathered and collected agendas
    each with different motives and similar goals
    books... I could write books on this
    each not even worth the words
    all I know is that my God has allowed
    this to serve His purposes
    so if a vow I am to keep
    I am oh so very willing
    but I cannot write poems based on lies
    or play a role in some story that is
    fiction more so than based on
    my life
    I'd rather simply stop writing poetry
    and never again prophesy
    and never advise those who know I advise
    even as they hang me out to dry
    I'd love to change the subject
    and get back to writing poetry
    so I again tell the Lord
    whatever You want just let me know
    and again He tells me
    that living by faith is not an easy thing

    Truth, indeed! I have felt many of these things myself. I think, in some way, we all have. This is a well-written piece. Full to overflowing with emotion. Enjoyed it much.

    Serenity...
