    i remember standing in a crowd of eager people
    with the preacher standing behind the pulpit...
    he was a "strong" eagar man....

    " U ARE ALL GOING TO HELL IF U DON'T REPENT!!"
    he would say, then pause letting his words
    hang and sink into
    those mynds in the audience...

    my soul was troubled i didn't want to die...
    and burn and walllow and cringe
    in my own self-regret for all eternity...

    rubbing my palms...
    grasping the walls....
    bones black with from what the fiyah brang...

    i walked up and slid in front of the pastor....
    nighty man...he scared me in a way...
    "So U CHOOSE TO SERVE THE HOLY ONE?"

    i thought about hell and cringed...
    my confessions spilled out of me...
    like blood out of an open moon....
    sex..drugs...rebellion...

    perhaps now my soul can be saved from damnation...
    i don't want to be left saulking in hells chambers...
    with a sign around my neck...
    "DUMB *** MUTHAFUCKA, DEAD IN TRANSGRESSIONS FOR PAST SINS"

    i would be clean...
    faultless, pure....

    my mynd woud sweep new things...
    i would be after Gods own heart...
    i would be free again...

    would the grave hold my sins against me...
    craw and grab my legs keeping me from
    entering into blessed eternity....

    no.....
    i repent....
    the act is done....
    i felt Him* near me, smiling,
    WHAT? Smiling?
    but after all i had done?
    He* just Smiles....

    a lost sheep has found its way back to its Sheperd*...
