    What is this craziness I’m feeling?
    I’m so high off love –
    the kind of love so undeserved.
    A higher love,
    A supernatural love,
    A love that looks beyond all faults and sees your need.
    A love that doesn’t hide itself,
    but bravely displays itself continually, despite the lack of reciprocity.
    A love that never judges,
    A love that never ceases –
    It’s God’s love.

    What is this shout welling up in me?
    It takes over.
    Slowly releasing my ability to control,
    I’m almost possessed, except for that tiny voice that says,
    “What are you doing? You’ll look like a fool”
    But, His goodness,
    Oh, His Goodness!
    just won’t let me walk away,
    won’t let me be annoyed by that stupid voice,
    that satanic demon living inside my head that has a stronghold on my actions.
    Get behind me satan!
    I’ve got to give my God praise.
    Victory is mine because of His grace and mercy.

    My heart beats praise
    My mind thinks praise
    My soul creates praise
    My eyes see praise
    My lips speak praise
    My hands wave praise
    My feet walk praise

    I’m high, Lord,
    because you looked low
    and saved this wretch.

    I appreciate the support, not just on this but on all my poems.

    (sung to Afroman's song, "i got high")

    I was going to turn back to my old ways, but then i got high (on God)...

    Speak these words for there is no greater "high" than God...

    i am loving this one poetess. You enetered the room with much wisdom...
