    Picture Perfection

    Entered the world with a blind eye, I was taught to be brave
    One glance closer to life, an oxymoronic vision of me in my grave
    What the purpose, what was the meaning?
    Had to be some reasoning for me backstroking in the semen
    So I had to run it down, observe, oversee and form a hypothesis
    I heard of a man called Jesus, Armageddon and the apocalypse
    Said he walked on water, his father split the Red Sea
    So I cried out, Lord please deliver me
    From this hell on earth, relinquish me from this curse since my birth
    Life being laughed at cuz my girth, is this all I’m worth?
    Said he touch the blind, let them see, healed the sick with of touch of his hand
    Why all this for a “*****” like me, I’m only one man
    Angels rejoice in heaven with the salvation of one soul
    I finally figured it out that the world’s jacket couldn’t keep me warm in the cold
    Said he was a carpenter, he grew up poor
    The voice speaking to me, when I felt no one loved me anymore
    Said he conversed to thugs, and my “******” on the corner
    He would go to war with me, protect me with his armor
    Said he would always be with me, never forsake me
    Analyzed my life, it’s not a mistake that he made me
    Lord, thank you for mercy and for your grace
    Lord I thank you for giving me the strength to stay in the race
    Wake me up in the morning to hear the birds and to see the sunrise
    Giving me knowledge and wisdom to combat and save those who despise
    I try my best to be like you, walk this land like you
    My people open the book, read for yourself, pray and you’ll see that this life is true
    The only begotten, the only picture of perfection
    Gave me eternal life, guided me through life’s pathways and gave me protection


    uhh
