    DYING TO LIVE

    I took the knife,
    Laid it upon my wrist
    I must have forgotten to sharpen the blade
    I missed my vein by an inch

    Loaded the gun
    Closed my eyes to sleep
    Aimed close,
    But the bullet barely grazed me

    I took some sleeping pills
    Closed my eyes to dream
    But the doctor told me,
    I would live to see one hundred and three

    I even ran out in the middle of the highway
    To end this pain that’s been ailing me
    But a stranger reached out and pulled me back to safety

    So I started to drink my nights away
    Hoping my body would fold and crumble
    I smoked until the flames would ignite my fear

    Laid down with many people
    Searching for the better half of me
    But all the test were negative
    I’m a failure at failing me

    So I sat upon a rock one night
    Staring at the sky in complete misery
    The stars began to form the story,
    of how Jesus saved me each time I tried to leave

    I was lifted upon the air,
    As the Holy Spirit took hold of me
    “My child it’s not your time to go
    Your life has just begun to grow

    you will one day be happy
    no longer will you settle for less
    I’ll give you life each time you wish for death

    Here are some tools to help you along the way
    A heart to forgive and carry the sun to the rain
    A golden soul to make the world a much better place
    A will strong enough to know,
    That trouble don’t last always
    And a good book to tell you why you’re beautiful,
    Because I made you in the image of me

    Take these weapons and always pray
    And I’ll promise you everlasting life
    Where happiness stays for an eternity

    why we have to die to live
    why all should take what we give

    why should the baby cry
    for the h.i.v. mother leaving to let the baby die

    to be amongst the theives
    to be found amongst the trees

    to grow up with out a future
    with out the proper nurture

    to grow up as the street her friend
    to trust in those snakes so-called men

    to one day turn tricks
    to one day to be her final lick

    because fate caught up with her
    to be left with a mini, and a raggedy fur
    it didnt occur

    that her fate was already seal
    because her mother made a deal (with the devil)

    to hear she too has A.I.D.S
    Now she runs out of Jacks, and Spades

    to be left alone in a dark Alley
    she took her last breath a girl named Sally

    because her mother brought in a child
    that was

    Dying to Live!!!!!!!!!!
