    Through wisdom is a house built.
    The Memorandum was delivered before birth,
    and the understanding is knowledge.
    I give to thee thy last slice of bread,
    Thy father give to me abundance of wealth.
    I give to thee my last coat.
    Thy father give to thee shelter to be warm.
    Through the coldness of thy wrath.
    Within the darkness of the night ,
    I humble in a cardboard box.
    Man frown upon me of the darkness I live.
    God gives me warmth.


    I sleep upon the wilderness of the night.
    Poverty beneath the grounds.
    Shelter that has no walls.
    God gives me strength to go on.
    I cry upon the night for food,
    I rumble through the cans like a dog.
    Man frowns upon me with shame.
    I eat the scraps that man no longer want.
    I the strength that lives within the darkness,
    Of the night survival where many would kill
    themselves of the thought.


    Thy profit shall not be much to man,
    Living within the belly of the beast,
    the garbage shall be someone else’s treasures.
    Where there is no wood there shall be no fire,
    where there is no water there shall be no food,
    when there is no love there shall be hate,
    destructions by mans own right hand.
    Be not deceitful to those who give you shelter,
    jealousy that portrays friendship,
    when no one else was there,
    cast not your jewels to the swine.

    A stone is heavy, and the sand is light,
    but a fools jealousy is heavy than them both.
    A man that sits in judgment of truth ,
    shall be a man who will feel the rapture of its wrath.
    Within these walls I shall not be silence,
    Within this cage, my mind shall restore,
    the after birth of self, as the body, craves
    for water, and so my spirit craves for thy God.
    My tears have been my rivers, as they continue to say
    to me where is my God. I shall not be silence,
    After the carcass of thy shrine return to dirt,
    I shall continue to reclaim my spirit, after
    the enemy has taken my body, I will remain with
    the spirit, I shall return in life.



    Pain shall not claim the
    mind, the pain shall pass on,
    but the spirit of thy soul shall remain.
    Thy words of earth shall not mark me,
    conceptions of those who stand before me,
    confusion that surrounds the inner depth of shame,
    by actions of blasphemes,
    by reason of the enemy and avenger,
    I speak of the words of thy King.
    The pen of thy tongue, the heart of thy love.
    They shall never be a doubt who is my God.

    The beast who identify his self as man.
    A mans pride shall bring him nothing,
    but honor shall behold the humble spirit.
    The fear of man brings snares,
    but who’s put his trust in the lord shall be safe.
    Man seeks the power to rule,
    but every man’s judgment will come from God.
    An unjust man is an abomination to the just,
    and he that lives by the accords of love,
    Is an abomination to the wicked.
    The man who never learned wisdom,
    nor have the knowledge of holy.


    Forget not the law of God,
    receive his words with loyalty to only him.
    So that you shall be blessed,
    with the words of wisdom,
    and apply your heart to understanding.
    Scornful words within
    and fools who hate knowledge.
    Let not your right hand smack you in the face.
    when fear becomes your damnation ,
    and your destruction, come as a ball of fire,
    When you call upon him, he shall not hear,
    you shall seek the father, but he shall not hear,
    for those who hate knowledge,
    and did not choose the fear of thy God.​
