1st Verse:
Before I felt anywhere near being a good man.
I was in an inner hell filled with fear, and like I couldn't
do anything positive,
thinking it's ok to be sinning as long as my wallet's thick...
But truth is, to be winning, it's more like give to the poor and sick.
I heard the call and I was quick
to embrace the Lord. But to adjust from my past
took time, but with grace I started discuss what is ours...
And that's the love of Jesus Christ
Who's above and gives us the light.
So my mission is on the mic:
To give my writings, to get you through the night...
Cos' life is hard – no doubt about it.
But with GOD in your heart, happiness – yeah, you found it...
So as I pen this verse the ink comes from my heart
I hope to send love, and if it sinks in that's more than enough reason to do this art.

I don't know exactly how I'll be judged
But I know that through time I've tried my best to lift myself outta the mud...
And questions have never gone unnoticed
And blessings have never come without hope.

2nd Verse:
GOD is there around us all the time.
Through the fog, if we stare, we will be fine...
I lived a lifetime with many lifelines.
I was night-blind, committing night-crimes...
An angry teenager and a confused youth.
I was full of rage and abused the truth...
Cos' when I dismissed GOD and leant towards earthly pleasures
I was burning the real treasures...
But I got older and had to face facts.
An angel on my shoulder who always had my back.
Then my world got colder but I prayed and my life became slowly intact...
Now, there are blessings that happen for us every day.
Along the way, we question – which I guess is one of the reasons we pray.
But I feel good and am no longer bleeding on paper...
So GOD, as you are always above,
I feel the need to look up. And you never know, I might see a dove!
