    I do impossible things
    Conscience takes a detour
    Behold the knock
    Improvise your life I hear
    Then I answer in prayerful ways
    Where my pen meets paper
    I speak from Mount Sinai

    There is a lot to say
    Tears flow in his magnificence
    I laugh for my God abides with me
    He says beautiful things
    And always yes
    Never demanding one way of being

    Makes me want to say yes
    No matter what you want lord
    As long as it feels like this freedom I feel
    Basking in your delight
    No judgment… I get it now
    I want to tell them yes
    Change my words and not oppress another

    Yes children
    You can sag your clothes
    First tell me why it must be done
    How does it fulfill your destiny
    Enabling all you are to be
    And I will not judge you
    Since your path lay in the sagging of your pants
    Or pull it up and start on your journey son
    Knowing the mighty god is a living man

    His yes
    Ends tribulation
    Making all us free
    Listening takes away the deafness of man
    The blindness of the eyes
    The crippling of the body

    When I hear yes
    I write

    The doors of "YES" will always be open, as long as the mind does the same.
    Great piece poet.

    It is remarkable how a positive attitude changes outcomes. Healing also changes the way we see things.

    Thanks for your support
