    Here I am
    Caught up
    In the fleshly desires of earthen man
    Who can’t control his own footsteps

    It is said
    “The heart is more treacherous
    than anything else…and is desperate.”
    And I do recall
    Using the excuse
    “I couldn’t help myself”

    self-control is running low
    if any at all
    I call on my LORD
    But he doesn’t hear the call of sinners
    Who aren’t beginners
    Who can’t spell change within their HEART

    O, but to start over

    To make sure things are done
    As HE commands
    Just one last chance
    To get things right
    For my plight is dire
    And the end is near

    I stand at the crossroads.

    {Heavy heart in hand}.

    Yes, change starts with the heart. That's why God looks on the heart and judge accordingly. In the valley of decision, may we see clearly. Beautiful Baller...just beautiful
