    Don’t trip God’s not through with me yet
    Besides you don’t know me we just met

    You can’t judge me with just one glance
    Take some time and give me a chance

    A chance to fail you in your eyesight
    Otherwise you prejudge who’s right

    I know your past makes you wary
    But I’ll show you the contrary

    Opposite of the misconceptions
    I’ll give you a novel perception

    I’ll never be the one to preach
    It’ll be my hand held in reach

    I’ll never look down on you
    For my position is not my due

    I'm not standing here cause of me
    It was grace and mercy that let it be

    Christian is more than a title I wear
    For I have my own cross to bear

    And if you see me crossing the line
    Don’t assume that I’m not truly divine

    I told you once before God is not through
    I am a work in progress, how about you?

    I'm definitely a work in progress. People see you claim being a Christian and then they look for you to fail, not realizing that by saying you're a Christian far from means you're perfect. I liked this piece.
