A bad dream use to make me scream,
I was naive and unaware of what the message would really mean.
Constantly running from the mental scene,
In fear of the unknown when every night I had already seen.
What was sure to come,
Beloved continued to show me, that I was truly a chosen one.
So why on Earth would I continue to run?
I’m not even sure myself but that phase of my life is done.
Never the culprit but I attend,
Conflict and confrontation, has never moved me within.
Accountable and aware, through it all I held a grin,
Because I did what I did and I’m aware of all of my sin.
So speaking loudly behind my back,
When confronted, statements they retract,
When they only speak opinions, never concrete facts,
So before I diss out the energy,
I’ve learned when and where to retract.
Illusions all now fade,
Thanking Beloved for movement forward,
No longer jammed in delays,
For better days I continue to pray,
You only know what you’re shown,
& That’s all I gotta say.
