    Holy is thee

    Holy is thee

    Holy isn't me

    as your baptized in holy water while I

    was baptized in durty water

    Clean water suppose to wash away the impurities from man's elements

    Water that washes over me seems to turn to filth

    Everything I touch

    turns to dust

    Everything I own

    fits inside of a box

    and my heart is left without beats

    My soul is left dying

    My eyes constantly crying

    over the love I shall never recieve

    But still I am baptized in durty water

    I stand in the shower washing and washing

    Washing until the pigment of my skin still remains

    Brown

    Brown seems to be looked down upon

    So shun

    Because of long ago

    My how the world has grown but we still have racism

    Racism has now gone underground

    Waiting, hoping to spring forth again to spread

    hatred

    violence

    as it sleeps

    but still I'm baptized in durty water

    Tell me when America is going to realize that the bible say we

    must not study WAR NO MORE

    WAR NO MORE

    WAR NO MORE

    While our children lie helplessly amongst the battlefields

    souls lost to violence

    A war we can't control

    A war we should have never fought

    A war that has cost us so much

    sacrifice

    so much

    pain

    so much

    poverty

    but still I'm baptized in durty water

    Tell me is the suffering ever going to cease

    War increase

    War increase

    Gas increase

    Gas increase

    while our paycheck

    decrease

    decrease

    as we use our paycheck to wipe our butts with

    because it is all what we can use it for

    Oh you want more, you want more

    My car sees more of my paycheck than my house

    sad

    sad

    sad

    I tell ya

    but must I

    do I

    deem myself a total failure

    Did I put myself in this prediciment?

    If I had oil of my own would I be stingy and hold on to it

    and let

    America, oh America

    Suffer while I continue to buy oil elsewhere

    Tell me could I

    But still I'm baptized in durty water

    There are other bigger problems that must be face

    But when the ship sanked

    Lets see if we can put a trace

    on the culprit

    that has us all crying

    "LORD, HELP ME JESUS I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE"

    as we all are baptized in durty water

    to be continued.............

    Born of greatness, but plotted against to feel less. Trying to wash something away that is our glory, it should evoke pride, not shame. I felt your pain, poetess, this was intense.

    i see you're questioning this "place'

    the realness of it

    and you see the durty water is just part of the "programming"

    you real problem is and always will be

    the printing of worthless money

    that we use everyday

    and it's continuous dictatorship on the way we think and behave

    America is not about freedom

    it's a cash cow for the people who print this worthless paper money

    that we live and die for everyday

    also known as

    The Quiet War

    ssshhhhh

    don't tell nobody

    they won't understand until they're laying in the gutter
