    spoken word joint~for C.C., from "Come, Joy!"

    my mind delves deeply
    into existential philosphies
    Bible prophecies....
    and ghetto visions

    but peace is coming

    "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord"
    and while I recognize clear Word
    all I wanna do is smoke him....good

    when I think of what he be doing to you
    so many years after y'all 'un-did'....'I do'

    but peace is coming

    I just wonder sometimes
    why good people be suffering
    so much pain
    even though Scriptures say
    it ain't all in vain

    it's in His hands
    and in His name...

    peace is coming

    Still, I know people who
    know people
    who would definitly waste
    him for a 40 oz...
    just roll up, do his ***
    and bounce

    I fret because of evil doers
    not able to obey
    what I know the Master
    say

    (and I ain't go'n pretend
    my own life is "ok")

    but peace is coming

    Down by the river side
    I struggle with my
    Christianity
    doing unto others what
    they might not EVEN
    do to me

    grasping at faith, hope
    and charity

    but peace is coming

    I pray for you, in my faltered
    state
    hoping my supplications
    won't be denied

    yeah, I've even contemplated
    homicide

    but

    peace is coming

    Sometimes getting even is not worth the price. This flows with such wisdom and purpose.
