    It’s a New Day
    A day that the Lord has Made!
    I don’t smoke today
    Because humble is the way
    I too can be black & mild
    I dare not drink today
    Cause nothing can fill my thirst for life
    I don’t cuss today
    Beacause Yeah I woke up forgot to brush my teeth
    And I don’t need more ugly coming out my mouth
    Yes, I sing because I’m happy today
    I cry too because the world is a scolding harsh desert
    And these tears is all the water I have to keep me strong today
    I pray today
    Cause I still believe & MC Hammer testified
    Screamed, “I need to pray just to make it today!”
    Yes, I could sit down today, but the lord has sent others this way so that I may stand
    And I could hold my head down today, but the lord hung his
    So I could hang mine high
    So I shout today
    Shout Thank You today, because he’s been so good to me
    And In return,
    I serve today, I get my hands dirty today
    Because I know My god has all power in his!
    And I too can make a change Today!

    yes when he speaks he speaks for you to come
    when you hear the call will you go numb
    for so long we have been walking with blinders
    and its good to see fishers of men are out to find us
    i dont know what it is but its feels good
    to leave the senseless in the hood
    and take up the skirts of righteousness
    and to know he still rain down upon the unrighteousness
    its feels good knowing that only my Father can judge me
    its feels good knowing that his prophetic words can set you free
    our Father has a purpose for all
    he never wanted us to fall
    he wanted us to live forever
    for now until endeavor
    but Tha-Emissary what's amazing if he call us back
    just think no more bills, war, crime, death an being labled as white and black
    we will in his eyes be equal
    and let me tell ya honey there wont be no sequel
    nobody i mean nobody gonna mess up a new earth
    good god almighty he's about to give birth
    to a new nation
    but we still have to turn away from temptation
    cause i want to live
    i want to breathe again
    i want to love again
    all of this depend
    on what im willing to do right now
    feels good my brotha to see clear clouds
    satan wont us to be wild
    and see that's why were both black and mild
    cause our father is calling us
    the world about to go bust
    and caught with their pants down
    im not about to be caught around town
    cause im striping off the old and putting on the new
    through us will gather dont mind if it will be a few
    just like us they will the see the light
    and the delight
    that our heavenly Father give
    the words that are pouring Father I long to live
    the day
    Because Tha-Emissary today is
    A New Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You HAD to know this Spoke WORLDS to me!

    Can't You feel it??
    Tell me you can
    I told Yall once all ready
    Brand New is the Name
    Staying true
    Is all it takes
    Alll our prayers
    Show our Love is not fake
    We will rise
    We shall see light again
    We first must see our minds
    For the Beauty it was given
    Make it Brand New

    Yes I do not Drink anymore
    Because I am tired of not living
    Yes, I do not smoke anymore
    Because it just wasn't legit
    YES, I do not curse anymore
    Because....Let's face it
    The more you open your mouth and the more Crap that comes out
    How can any belief your worth hearing
    ALL THIS BEFORE GOD
    I want him to see me Brand :new:
    I want him to see me meet You
    I want him to see us Get Through
    I want him to make us Brand New

    Catch me up to the Days that I have missed
    Throwing away my dreams on a spliff
    I threw away the spliffs on a Dream
    Oh Yes I threw away and Got some other things
    All of this is my Re-Incarnation
    I want to be reborn and clean
    Walk with me Brother
    Walk this Way
    I see Ya Big Bro
    Yeah....It's A BRAND NEW DAY!

    BLESS:hearts2:

    Thank you PLATINUMILLITY1 and you're poem, "You Gotta Light" spoke waves of encouragement to me as well. Perhaps if You Gotta Light & We all here have a light then maybe just maye one day will be a New Day!
