    Witness the tumbling down
    of life's maddening go around.
    Feel the icy edges of the devil's
    rage coming for his, her pay.

    Smell the sickening bile
    of too many years gone by,
    forgotten and tucked away
    inside memories without escape.

    Taste the bitter agony
    of broken angels who have
    fallen from the throne of grace.

    Sense love emptying from this room
    as echoes of fading laughter
    drift from this dreadful place.

    Hear the hum of anger
    caged on the ledge,
    waiting to be born.

    Feel wanton hearts
    grow thin and weary
    as the meek ones
    are left cut and bleeding.

    Sense the strong
    growing more greedy
    as life's drumbeat drones on.

    There is no room for the needy.

    nicely posed
    as the needy fine comfort
    upon my home
    a place of love where i roam
    da greedy seep low
    and smiles cast

    indeed when we hold
    grasp of the needy
    feelins will be treated

    within da faith of almighty
    da devil will pass the path
    of glory to define one's hater
    da love & grace will fill the place
    so needy come unto open arms


    nice wake up call lovin da flow
