    change your ways today
    for there may not be a tomorrow

    we step through life with solemn
    sorrows deep and hollow as the
    bottomless pit

    wicked dispicable making me
    want to spit

    change your ways today
    for there may not be a tomorrow

    we sing through the pain and dark
    clouds of doubt as we sit down
    and wonder what is it all about

    no one ever told you we were
    destined to fall yet GOD uplifted
    man to stand tall in a world so very
    small

    change your ways today
    for there may not be a tomorrow

    we sing through pain and times
    of sorrow

    no one ever told you we were
    destined to fall yet GOD uplifted
    man to stand tall in a world so very
    small



    dedication to Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopez(age 30)
    and Aaliyah Dana Houghton(age 23)

    thank you for this... I look at the ages of these young women, and realize what a tender thread life truly is... tomorrow is not promised.

    very real.

    life is no game to play at all
    ms. lisa's another haunting frame on the wall
    we open our eyes
    death has no surprise call time or season
    but they ask "why does this happen" searching for rhime and reason
    but find none
    for life i thank God for the Son for through Him DEATH
    if viewed as BREATH

    baby girl this piece was true in all aspects....

    ya boy

    Feelin ya sis!

    This is what trully breaks my heart.
    They must know about the Love Of Jesus Christ.
    Because may never get a second chance.
    To live is Christ and to die is gain. If you have Jesus in your life that. There is A HEAVEN AND A HELL. No matter what anyone says. You pick your final destination.
    Where do you want to spend eternity?
    The clock is ticking...
    Jesus is coming back!
    Let us make peace with The Creator before His return.
    This is no joke and not a laughing matter.
    In the end no one can save you. The decisions you make on earth can determine the end but there is always salvation through Jesus Christ. Recieve Him today while there's still time.
    Sincerely,
    Desert Storm

    Aaliyah, DSS, and DS

    what you do leaves a tarnished mark on your soul forever
    all the things we wish and hope for to find personal happiness
    we were better off without them yet in realizing that no day
    is promised to any woman or man on the face of this earth

    it's best to go for the gusto while you still can and whatever it
    is you are setting to achieve make sure this accomplishment
    gives GOD our creator great satisfaction in knowing you were
    here to change the world for the better

    we don't know the beginning, nor will we know the end before its time, all we know is we are here right now speculating on how it will be...with that said as we bow our heads let us not add up others sum total with our mental math, let them go peacefully to a unknown beyond, knowing that it is now our duty to be responsible for those messages of love, peace and salvation...for we are the possiblity in creation...amen.

    One,
