    A vessel being used by God
    blessed to live this day
    known as the present.
    A present!
    A gift.
    A precious gift of God.
    Thankful for this day
    and the many
    blessings bestowed
    there is a story ready
    to unfold inside my soul
    from the days of old.
    A Father.
    A Husband.
    A Lover.
    A Friend.
    My soul is here to the end.
    And If anyone asks
    who I be
    Tell them...
    I'm that brutha who lost his job
    with nothing to eat.
    Tell them...
    I'm the brutha on the street with
    no shoes on his feet.
    Tell them...
    I'm that aborted baby.
    Tell them...
    I'm that single parent struggling
    to make ends meet.
    Tell them...
    I'm that abandoned and
    lost child.
    Tell them...
    I'm that person walking the
    street and you were too afraid
    to speak.
    Tell them...
    I'm just the soul of man
    after God's own heart
    surrending my mind, body,
    and soul to the one who
    breathed the breath of life.
    Thank you Lord for all you have done for me.

    (We are all one)

    2 Corinthians 4:7

    But this precious treasure--this light and power that now shine within us--is held in perishable containers, that is, in our weak bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own.

    your pen has spoken this verse today...i plant this seed into your life as you have planted in me....

    tight scribe poet.
