    Why such a rush
    Has Jesus returned
    Is he down at the mall
    Teaching the unlearned
    Offering salvation
    To all who're sincere
    Healing the sick
    Obliterating fear
    No this is not the case
    Today is like the one before
    People are settling for less
    And still wanting more
    They're dreaming of salvation
    They're guessing its form
    They're clinging tightly
    To what's considered the norm
    They'd most likely miss
    What they claim to seek
    If it walked up boldly
    And began to speak
    Too bad they've been programmed
    To just play a role
    In a staged presentation
    To further the goal
    Of the enemies of reality
    The haters of truth
    From the day they were born
    And throughout their youth
    Now they find themselves trapped
    Not even knowing what is real
    Seeking out psychiatrists
    Just to tell them what they feel
    In a hurry going nowhere
    In a rush to get there fast
    On the stage of absurdity
    Just a member of the cast
    That's lost in the sea of nothingness
    Looking chic but empty inside
    Not piloting their own lives
    Merely cruising along on the ride

    RE:TO Rasheed

    Interesting spin
    Some are not disappointed
    with carnal knowledge and sin
    One thing i can say YOUR poem is not disjointed

    Yeah- I seen this script before; matter of fact see it everyday. Its ironic that this same Jesus was not recognized last time he 'came', and since as it was in the beginning... U know the deal- he'll walk right up to folk and they'll not know it. Yeah..

    JAH Love is ONE.
