    PLEASE DON'T PRAY 4 ME

    I AM JUST A HUMBLE SANDAL BEARER
    SUB SERVIANT TO UNIVERSAL LAW

    I AM JUST A HUMBLE SANDAL BEARER
    KEEPIN RECORD FOR MY LORD

    I CHECK'D BACK THIRTY YRS
    BEGINNING OF MY YOUTH

    AND I KNOW THAT YOU CAN'T FACE ME
    I AM STANDING ON THE TRUTH

    IF EVERYONE COULD UNDERSTAND
    WHAT THIS IS TRULY ABOUT

    THE CONCEPT IS
    TO TURN THE LIGHT WITHIN

    COMPLETELY

    INSIDE OUT

    THE ENERGY INSIDE OF ME
    IS COMIN OUT NATURALLY

    NO GIDGETS GADGETS
    OR MANIPULATIVE MAGICK
    JUST THE OBJECT OF MY LOVE

    WAS ENOUGH TO CHANGE MYSELF
    INTO THE GODDESSS I ALWAYS WAS

    AS ABOVE SO BELOW
    YOU LEAVE ONLY TO RETURN

    TO FIND THAT ALL THE LOVE'S
    INSIDE OF YOU
    THE SIMPLEST LESSON NEVER LEARNED

    FREE THE SPIRIT

    NATURALLY

    NOT WITH A KITE THAT IS ATTACHED
    TO A KEY

    WALK THE PEACE
    BE THE PEACE
    I'M GOOD
    SO PLEASE DON'T PRAY FOR ME

    Oh, Miss Lady! When I saw this title, I just had to read/comment!

    You brought back some memories for me! My oldest brother (R.I.P.) used to say this all the time! LOL! He would say, "Nooo, don't be praying for me!..Your heart may not be right and you'll make my situation worse off than it was! Plus, I don't want no 'changes' comin' over me and don't know whence they come!" :lol:


    So, your title, for sure, caught my eye! He was speaking from a Christian perspective, and you from a spiritual one but the sentiments are similar.


    However, I just LOVED how you expressed this! ---The "inside-out" concept was a great metaphor as well as the "simplest lesson!" :toast:

    And the ending stanza just sealed it, nailed it and brought it on home!
