    is it the rustling of the leaves
    as they're moved around by gentle breezes
    that intriques me
    or,
    is it the warmth of the sun
    that radiates from the ONE
    who gave me life

    is it?

    is it the cool, refreshing rains
    that soak...ease my pains
    as i slow dance through chance after chance at happiness
    that intriques me
    or,
    is it the soft glow of the moon light
    on a warm, summer's night
    as the lapping of the waves sing to me

    is it?

    when the morning sun shines
    casting visions of tomorrow
    ...images of yesterday
    as it travel across a sky...divine
    'til setting on the western most precipice
    beyond where i sit or stand
    and night begins when day gives way
    to stars and moon and yet another day
    and rivers of life
    feeds fast flowing tears
    as it counts the days
    the months
    the years
    of the journey we all must travel each day
    as the sun hides beyond
    so the moon and stars can play

    is it.

    is it money
    the almighty cheddar
    the power to make dreams mo’ betta
    come on, yo'
    is that your dream
    is that what you think is you?

    is it?

    is it a constant dream
    of a future paved with glitter and fame
    not in HIS name
    but for selfish gain

    i've looked into the eyes
    of she who GOD gave to me
    they spoke of joy and happiness
    and told of wonders they could see
    they painted breath-taking portraits
    of all the things we're meant to do
    she smiled a beautiful smile
    that said the words she spoke were true

    i know

    the many doubts that come to mind
    "my faith isn't strong enough"
    "i don't have the time"

    just brush that old self out of your ear
    PRAY for HIS strength
    that HIS words you will hear

    hope that tomorrow will bring enlightenment to you
    that we might imitate the Son
    yeal,
    that's what we must do

    is it the oxygen we breathe
    that come from leaves
    that intriques me
    or
    is it that man
    in his destruction of the land
    is on a self-defeating course 'cause he doesn't understand

    is that what intriques me?

    hmmm.

    we're all touched by different things...

    what intriques me most is being awakened on a daily basis. GOD don't have to do that for me...but HE does. that's LOVE.

    THANKS FOR THE READ.
