    haiku


    clipp'd wings we soar no-
    more. plummet to grounds where we
    give up society.




    social martyr

    is what they called me…
    martyr for society
    'cause there aint no mo
    'stompin at the savoy,'
    jive talkin' –‘ball-room dance-
    like’ speeches.

    we are done…
    our wings clipp'd
    we are no
    longer social butterflies…
    glitter'd and gay
    buyin into lies as fly and smooth
    as butter.


    social martyr

    is what they called me…
    they say I'm condemned
    'cause i refuse to go
    along with every man's
    common CONvoLUTED conventions;
    i am
    stigmatized 'cause
    my breath reeks of fresh gospel…full grown,
    and ripe word.

    a martyr to society 'cause
    ABBA, Daddy; he don't
    allow no half-steppin'
    don't allow no
    jive excuses and
    idle words…no faith without
    works, no…foolishness.

    social martyr

    'cause though the feet of those
    who carry the gospel are
    beautiful…there
    is a price to pay
    for what we
    carry…for
    what we freely
    preach.
    see…
    social martyr's
    are ambassadors from HIS
    land to this one
    sent with spiritual immunity
    and many times
    we R
    persecuted and stay
    facing
    attempted assassinations;
    and risk getting’
    caught up in various assignations…but still…
    our feet are beautiful…
    our mouths leak truth…
    our bloodstreams carry HIS
    distinctive strain,
    life and spiritual progression
    are ingrained
    in our DNA…
    but…
    there still remains persecution…what
    a price to pay.

    salvation . free!
    faith . free!
    revelation knowledge, rank, weight, pull
    in spiritual realms, and divine authority and
    even wondering if my DADDY even LIKES
    me?

    there is a fee!

    martyrdom…sometimes natural;
    many times
    spiritual.


    social martyr
    is what we are…feet
    like hind's feet…always
    treading above and walking on
    the heights of
    testing, trials and responsibilities;

    social martyrs…withdrawn from
    the plastic glamour of society
    and
    instead of preachin' fluff, stuff,
    bling, good feelin's… nothing
    substantial…just lies,
    we deliver str8t up
    truth…the word of God;
    remedy
    against deception that desires
    complete, world-wide
    supremacy.

    we
    embrace our
    distinction…
    peculiar and stranger
    than most…
    we
    are the order
    of
    social martyrs.


    buc’ii (333232313)

    i tarry
    in the sighs
    of I AM's
    breathe-i
    fold his love
    in mid-
    streams of my
    heart.
    i speak HIM.

    I am so blessed to have the oppurtunity to be the first one to respond to this lyrical masterpiece...You really nail this. It captures the experience of the "nobody" striving to tell everybody about somebody that can save anybody. Dang!!! There's nothing left to say but Amen and job :welldone:

    The truth isn't lit up on a marquee surrounded by neon lights. It's laying in a field somewhere, many pass it, usually don't even give it a second glance, and if they did, would they even recognize it? Fathoms deep poet.
