    he found in the end that God only was his true friend

    she understood through her failed relationships that only
    God could give her everything she needed and not man

    i jehiah confess that i've never found happiness not even in life
    health and strength

    i confess my peace was found in loving God with all of my heart mind and soul's length
    and my brothers and sisters the same

    prospering in the world just as my soul does....

    for as far this life, this world is concerned everything that is will be everything that was

    dreams are as the sun's beams which for a day they are bright as the night awaits

    for nothing will fulfill a person's soul except what is able to make them whole so i declare Christ to you

    i submit Christ to you so that when you take your last breath
    you will not see death, but life if you believe..

    for no one will take their spouse, their house, cat and mouse to the grave where they are going
    but eternal life are for those who while on earth they kept knowing that
    God is first...

    felt like freestylin' from the soul.....

    this, poet, is why you live in the garden, where Adam first saw Eve, where life began and where it ends...speak true your words for you are a true vessel and you are planting seed bro'

    i see the sphere of God

    inside the 360
    the ying and the yang
    it's up the individual
    which side he stands

    energy rotates in a
    boomerang likeness


    peace and love
