    Testimony
    by Monad.poetress


    While sitting in church
    I heard the preacher say
    Does anyone have a testimony today?
    My heart was filled and I knew he was speaking to me
    He was giving me the chance to say how God has set me free
    How he broke the chains that had me bound
    How he directed my path and turned me around
    How he stopped the punches I used to receive
    How he made me listen, how he made me believe
    I needed to testify
    That he stopped my pain
    How he pulled me from the depths of going insane
    I knew I needed to tell someone how God stood up for me
    How he unshackled my feet and set me free
    How he healed the bruises that domestic violence put on me
    He said a sinner's life is not the one for me
    So I stood tall and walked to the altar
    My strength did not fail, my legs did not falter
    I stood and told the world all that I had to say
    I truly have a testimony today.

    Big props for releasing the soul...like emptying out the old, ...pouring in the new. Job well done.

    i saw the risen from within myself,
    wrapped in righteousness silent prayed for constantly,
    the meditation after break-fast,
    fruits cleanse my intuition instinctively brand new,
    the cycle must be renewed every foul play,
    hit the enemy with the real,
    make jealousy fall to the ground healed,
    enlighten the dead up with foresight skill,
    i must confess from above i saw it down low,
    over the earth the testimony ran its own course,
    they seen the mourning when your sun came up,
    they seen pieces of the truth as the moon wane and wax across the skies,
    i seen the same ant roam endlessly for the queen as the world turned,
    you can find they trail of tribulations mightier than any hue-man,
    i will testify to it.
