    Crack babies swimming by
    With spiked shoes
    Climbing higher than high
    For the altitude it brings

    Mental corruption
    Rupturing my soul
    Got me drowning
    In a sea of sinning
    Since my beginning

    DYING

    Day-by-day
    Coz the wages of sin
    Be DEATH
    Brought on by weaknesses
    Of the flesh

    Will I succumb?

    Will I succumb?

    Evils…
    Of flesh and mind are out to get me
    Trying to seduce me
    …talking ‘bout
    “where my kitty at?”
    knowing…the only cat I be interested in
    is protected by the trees of the forest
    where the canyons are deep
    with over flowing honey.

    “listen child…
    Turn thee back
    From your fleshly ways,”
    You say
    “from desires of the flesh
    that destroy men
    coz the waters are deep
    you be treading in”

    I hear you

    And, though, I believe in
    What you say
    I can’t just walk away

    Can’t break the surface
    Of waters so deep

    I’m weak

    Arms failing
    Against currents that draw me under
    Beneath sewers of drug addiction
    By caverns of alcoholism
    Around would-be-friends
    Waiting to betray me
    Everyday
    I see
    A cesspool of
    Depravity

    Got you asking
    What they do to me

    ****
    These waters are deep.

    ... that's why you let Him swim for you
    and you just glide on through...

    Issues of addiction(s) have been
    heavy on my mind lately.
    So many souls suffer from these
    stifling diseases. :(

    This piece touched my heart&soul
