TAR PIT

Here I am at the black Tar Pit…

Walking around, circling it…

When I turn to leave my mind and soul fall in…

Swamped by depression, tar, and sin

 

It’s sticky in here and I can’t move…

Panicly, frantic on what to do…

As my mind sinks deeper in the goo…

Waving arms and kicking feet, a statue…

 

I do not move…

 

I want to reach for dry land, but this Tar Pit pulls me down

It’s liquid darkness courting me, as it caresses around

But I know inside of me, there is more strength to be found

And I will fight with Jesus at my side, to drag my mind and soul to solid ground….

 

Lost within the deep Tar Pit, mind sinking into shadowy black

But the hand of Christ reaches down to me to pull my sinking black soul back

I’ve walked the Tar Pits all my life, I know how shadows attack

So now that I’ve found Jesus I can fight the shadows back….

 

Know that!

 

So I will take the swim right now, if life demands I need the Tar…

Because it’s the hardships and trails of life that define who we are….

And I know Jesus will tend to me, without a cost or charge…

And pull my mind and soul from the darkness, and save me from the Tar…

MAG 2021
I was, well, I’ve always said it, a HEATHEN straight up and celebrated! I lied, stole, spat and laughed in the name of Christ, He was a joke to me, a myth, and all these stupid people were running around praising this “Jesus”, pathetic and laughable, (I thought). …… AND NOW … Needless to say I’m still attending the same Church to this day. My poetry has swung dramatically from dark, desolate, and evil, to almost completely God based, with better messages of faith, hope, and love. I was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ on April 29th 2018. In the future, I intend to walk with Christ, constantly striving to be the best man I can to His pride. I vow to love the world and all in it and to treat it as such . . . with love. Most of all, I look forward to continuing to learn and bond with the Scriptures, God, Christ, and The Holy Spirit, and share what I discover in hopes of helping another such as myself to find Grace in Jesus Christ. AMEN. [from the Personal Testimony in “Inspired By …”]
