    The Lord above forgave us all for every offense
    great or small and shed His blood
    for Crips and Bloods
    God's way of
    showing
    Love

    Have you ever wanted a pound of flesh
    to even the score to cover a debt
    make them pay and regret
    the way they treated you?

    Did you ever ask for an assist
    only to be rudely dissed
    burst with pride ~
    before a fall
    some devil
    hogging
    the ball?

    Could you allow your spirit to soar
    crash the board serving the Lord
    ILL afford to ignore...
    a Soulful knock
    at the door?

    I felt my jaw tense at the wording after "regret" and into the third stanza....I guess any transgression leading me to that state would not in my mind equate a ball hog...Last stanza gets better, but I don't feel it reaches back up to the strength of the first stanzas.
