    Oh, Oh, Oh
    Yeah Yeah Yeah
    Tell Me!

    What if God was one of us
    Just a man on this earth
    would you shower him with Love
    as He make his way own

    Just alone a bus
    raggedy and alone
    would you take his arm
    as you show him warmth
    OH Yeah

    Tell Me, Yeah!
    If God was from above
    just a man without Love
    would you shower him with your glow
    As He Journey On

    Or

    Would you feel better than He
    Would you feel more free
    until you realize
    He Is Christ
    Oh Yeah

    Tell Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH

    What would you do
    If god was one of Us?

    re:If

    Thanks Rich for commenting on this poem. A lot of Homeless people probably
    died in those states. People just pass them by sitting as the storm came inland. We have got to start caring for each other in a real way. We are all
    God's Children.

    this was tight, I got something on the line like this so does my mans B. in one of his poems he states this.

    What if Jesus claimed down from the cross
    and told said Father
    they just ain't worth the cause

    Wisdom7.Street So'ja, Caramelpython, Watz and Defiantson, Thanks for commenting on this poem.
    We need to wake up and love each other as we love ourselves, respect each other as we would respect ourselves and Hurt No one who can feel pain.
