    Daddy I see you've changed
    Turned into a new man a...
    SELF-PROCLAIMED GOD with
    the Able-ity to
    Cast Stones at your
    first born...

    Who made you...
    When did you become...
    Judge and Jury

    Accuse-ations cause
    anguish~
    I'm furious yet
    curious~

    Inquiring minds want to know
    what causes you to
    D
    R
    E
    N
    C
    h

    Me in your

    Lethal/Nitro/Flow

    when like a
    Jack~N~the~Box
    you...
    POP
    U
    P
    un-Expected and...
    Listen to you I'm
    Expected so...

    Attempting to ABIDE by
    the commandment

    "Honor thy Mother and Father"

    I sit in Judgement by the

    NEW GOD (and his newfound follower MOM)

    this...wo/man
    "whom is without sin" and
    allow the(hi)m to cast stones

    HOW COULD YOU lay down and give your
    body to a man~defiling the marriage bed

    You don't have a pot to piss in
    or a window to throw it out of

    Do you have shoes... WHY are you ALWAYS
    wearing those flip flops

    You owe this person

    Have YOU accepted Jesus Christ as
    your Lord and Savior

    YOU NEED to make a decision as to
    what God you're going to serve cause
    you're dippin in MUSLIM and 'that' rasta/jamaican
    religion

    I mean look at your hair

    What's up with you burnin that
    Frankincense the way you do

    Why aren't your "FRIENDS" helping you
    They OBVIOUSLY AREN'T GOD SERVING CHRISTIANS
    YOU NEED to find some new friends

    Still friends with that detective huh
    YOU are a ****


    Trying to maintain my ATTITUDE I wonder

    God is this another test from you
    to show my FAITH in YOU is TRUE

    Turning to my Daily Bread and your
    WORD which continually keeps me fed
    you reach for me and say

    Take My Hand

    for I AM the Lord Jesus Christ father of
    mercies an God of Comfort

    -2 Cor 1:3

    Whatever your WILL is for me
    let it be

    and when you see fit

    REVEAL it to me

    Until then...I remain steadfast
    PRAYIN on Bended Knee

    Afri,

    Well scribed, but, don't let this consume you. You know you are one of GOD'S children. Man, his words are only translations of self understanding. You are beautiful sister who needs positive energy to relish in and prepare for the "BIG dance." Hold on...
    (hello?)
    It's for you. It's North Carolina calling.

    Stay positive and upbeat I know at times it gets hard and I know you're just venting but be the blak woman you are...STRONG...and yes the bible does state "honor thy mother and father" but don't let yourself be disrespected.

    one love,blak

    entering from the garden or serenity

    okay you gonna make me work this morning. there is oh so much i can say about this piece, especially after reading your email but i have decided to post a forum on it. watch for it today. what i will say is that zealousy is another form of jealousy and when we seek God first we must also seek to become spirtually and emotionally whole. Afri, you must not allow his words to enter your peace for once they rest there then it becomes your battle to fight.

    Remember the words of Christ...

    Matthew 10:32-42

    "Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven. Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; and A MAN'S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it. He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. "And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward."

    your cross is before you...pick it up, and walka way from the ones whom try to destroy you....

    look out for my forum...

    What An Awesome Piece!!!

    African Dancer,

    I relished this poem. You spoke for the issues of the heart and painted pain, frustration, faith and hope, between every line.
    Well written.
    :)

    There is a reason why the scriptures declares for fathers not to provoke their children to wrath, yet seeing that you are one of the chosen generation, you must rise above this issue. We must understand that the enemy will use whoever he can in order to shake our faith and trust in God. Although he may not have been there for you, you are right when you say you must still honor him as your father. Do not let the neglect of yesterday comsume your faith in God today. You cannot do anything about the past and sometimes present actions of your parents, but you can pray for them, and pray that God strengthens you in this time. The scripture declares that when we are weak then he is strong, when we feel we can't stand up to the task, and that the burdens have taken all of our strength, we have the ability to call on the name of the Lord and he shall give us what we need to handle the situation. The Bible further states in Isaiah that They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. That word wait means more than simply standing by, but it also means to serve (hence the word waiter). In your waiting on God, continue to serve him, and he in return shall renew your strengh. Not only that but he shall allow you mount up on wings as eagles which means you shall rise over the present situation and overcome it, you shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint. You don not sit in their judgement because you have already been justified by faith, through the death of Jesus, but now you must allow yourself to ministered to so that you may heal from your deep rooted pains.


    The Bishop has spoken.

    Thank you for reminding me to Remember who my father really is. :heart:ya

    dnommo~
    It just seems soooo hard sometimes to just walk away. She talks about being ill and how she almost died b/c of stress and heart problems. It is at these times that I feel guilty and caught between a rock and a hard place. I can't imagine how I'd feel if something happened to her w/things so many unresolved issues between us. Same thing with my father.

    Despite the hurt, I still love them both. They say they love me and I desire to honor and respect them but things are said and done which makes me want to be as far away from them as possible. Then I'm accused of 'running away" from my problems. :confused:


    Joyce~
    Sis I'm just striving to keep the faith!:angel1:
    *this is a picture of my reality*

    Bishop~
    So what you're saying is that this IS a test of my faith?
