Jesus is an addict

  1. flatline...
    that line was uncut
    but what do I know
    a wino
    no
    go away
    far away
    from me
    I see freedom
    in escape
    mind-raping
    the blind
    come find me
    confined
    remind me
    to rewind me
    to right before
    she died
    I cried you know
    I drive her crazy
    she said
    I tried to revive her
    a survivor of
    syringe-binge cringes
    comes to an end
    a no fun funeral
    weekend
    I attend
    pretend to blend
    in
    send what
    I penned
    OD trend
    mend, heart
    mend
    of my girlfriend...

    phone-check, kid
    snitches
    get stitches
    which is a crazy
    way to live daily
    it's hazy
    mail me a letter
    they're like gold
    but better
    face it
    taste
    incarceration
    manifestation
    you told
    me
    you'd hold me
    and you'd wait
    'til I got out
    no doubt
    now I'm about to
    kill a guy
    that wants to murder
    a friend
    of mine
    so I
    glorify
    a lie
    I heard
    killing and murder
    ain't the same
    in this game
    infamous fame
    a shame
    a sham
    a broken pen
    pointless
    no point
    in playing
    this joint...

    addiction
    affliction
    a contradiction
    an admission of
    my condition that lies
    makes lows highs
    makes highs
    higher
    fire
    desire
    too wired to
    take anymore
    two lighters
    later
    no more dope
    knees on the
    floor
    no more rope
    arms to the sky
    hopeless
    nope
    cross my heart
    hope
    to die
    perfected
    perfect
    Christ paid my
    price
    of loan
    convicted in my
    conflict
    no
    longer alone
    now
    Jesus
    is an addict
    because
    he took my
    vices
    as
    his own...

    I AM free...

    1 Corinthians 10:13
    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

    1 John 2:16
    For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.

    1 Corinthians 6:12
    “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.

  7. Tell me about it. The weird thing is is that for all those years, freedom was always right there in front of me, just waiting for me to ask. God's a trip, yo.No doubt. Keep on being free, brotha. Peace
     
  8. Absolutely. Thank you for reading and commenting. Peace
     
  9. FEAR false evidence appearing real fear is the opposite of faith i was scared to death for years of facing myself my emotions the real world not knowing jesus at the time i had to fill the whole with something and that something was usually drug or alcohol until i accepted the fact that jesus was the only thing that could feel that hole and truly make me happy i was not the man i was supposed to be and although i still have a lot of growing to do I'm on the right path as long as i stay in his will and in his word
     
  10. Oh man...how great that Jesus sees us in a greater light than we see ourselves. "Come as you are" No doubt. I, like many people, used to be under the false impression that Christ couldn't love me in the state I was in. I sure didn't love me. He loves me just as much now as he did back then. Unconditional means no conditions. Word. The more I loved him back, the less I wanted to do those things anymore. We all have a lot more growing to do, brotha. The moment I say "I've arrived! I am where I'm supposed to be!" is the moment I am truly lost. A little bit stronger than yesterday is good enough for me. Peace
     
  11. ty for the uplifting words brother
     
  12. No thanks necessary, yo. You are my neighbor.
