    Family quarrel upset me Lord
    Times been hard without a job
    Making calls...
    No luck at all
    I implore you,
    Break my fall :rain:

    Down and out surrenders God
    Heed the call against the wall
    Bottomed out and praying long
    Praise the Lord,
    I'm walking TALL

    Spirit-man,
    Done been reborn :wave:

    Me and whatnot got reformed :spin:
    Any day now I'm assured
    Can't afford to ignore God

    Nothing evil to avoid
    Gift from God
    No paranoia!
    Gravy train of only self
    Had too much of nothing else

    Lessons too familiar :kick:

    Living with no Savior
    In denial of morbid Hell
    Where's the trust we place in God?

    I digress to Satan
    Blessed are the children
    To address conundrum
    I confess rebellion... :roll:

    That was great it made me think of things that I am going through as well. I have a lot of poems that I would like to post but I don't know how. When I figure it out maybe I can inspire someone like you've inspired me!
