    "Testament"

    Sometimes I think I’ve been forgotten
    When I close my eyes and speak
    No one is there to listen
    Silence has followed me for 3 years now
    And I’ve sinned
    God knows
    The things that I became caught up in
    Ignoring big momma’s words of wisdom
    And it’s not fair how I remember
    I remember to ask in solitude only
    When times get bad
    Instead of counting all my blessings
    Respecting this gift of life I have
    When evil held that knife to God’s throat
    Who was I to speak on his behalf?
    Nah, I fell back in line with the masses
    Again chasing them girls with the juicy azzes
    GOD wasn’t a fashionable thing
    Jeez, I hope they didn’t hear me when I just speak his name
    But little did I know
    One day I’d ended up all alone
    All the material **** was temporary
    Even the love in my life
    I could’ve kept it
    But I made God’s love secondary
    When will I decide to give up this **** and submit
    Time will tell, and I know it’s running out
    But for now I thank God for my testament

    A testament is the most unique gift a servant can have

    And it’s all mine
