Praise should be free

Praise should be free
Not entered into manually
Raised hands are signs of worship naturally
Only to You do I give all
Something so small
Why not give it all
Suspended thoughts of selfishness
Leading to incessant ego driven rants
Proper guidelines laid before thee
Progressive interpretations laden with false depictions
Engrossed in development of unjust followers

Many of them full of despicable sorrows
Righteous discipleship demands sacrifice
How precious is your life
Why must we be cloaked in strife
Inducted into folklore rituals becoming inherent

Their truths no longer transparent

Forsaking the Greatest Parent
To the next generation

Communication has become stagnant
Spoken word scriptures
Lies ingested and perfected to reflect suspect ideals
Your role is to transform through obedience daily

No need to seem shady

There are requests that need to be made
There is no equal
There isn’t a sequel
It’s all laid out before you
Be what He has laid out for you
Undoubtedly led to stand before
Those in immediate contrast

Stop allowing your mind to get hung up in your past

Seemingly gliding through life in a full body cast
This time has been appointed
Life can be full of disappointments
Entertain those in ear shot
Testify to thee about who has the top spot
Referee those apologies around you
When ignorance constantly spewed
Emptiness begins to stew in your heart
Flee those doubts
Rise above those great debaters
Lift yourself from despair
Now that you’re more aware
Yearn for them to push forward
Your prosperity is in the blessings your receive daily
Your defense mechanism should be prayer

Don’t allow your praise to be encoded as monotony

Be free and clear

Don’t allow your praise to be smeared

Instead allow His Holiness to be revered

Raise your hands where you stand

Bow your head in your seat

Allow the tears to creep out of your soul

No need to be the mole

Not ashamed should be your tagline

I live for the Kingdom should be the hashtag

The book your profile should be updated in daily has no face

The Lamb’s blood is the base

Now who do we see when we look upon your face


Poetry in Praise

Praise should be free

Raised hands shows our expression of loyalty naturally

It should be upon our lips daily

We’ve been blessed exponentially

Only to Him do I give all praise

From the Baptist to the Jew

Perspectives have be skewed

We have all been chosen to be a part of the chosen few

As a royal priesthood we should continuously rep our hood

Believer priests have kingdom thoughts of peace

Not residing in the muck and mire of disgrace

Our residence is not consumed with racist comments

We are edifying our endowments

We’re all one big community of souls

Knowing your role in this world takes some introspection

From your perspective your life may seem dim

From the outside looking in strength can be seen through your tough skin

Corporate bible study enables your flesh to be rejuvenated

In the sea of negativity you no longer need to wade in

Those moans have allowed you to navigate to a safe haven

His arms are where you lay your heavy burdens

When you took up that cross

Certain activities should have been slowly removed

It would have behooved you to walk that narrow path

Those naysayers want you to be popular in a world that’s dying

I’m relying on an eternal popularity in the form of a trustworthy companion

See as the song states I am a friend of GOD

Through my body I show him my worth

All praise is due to HIM

In creating me He saw my tendencies

Yet still decided to defend me

In that garden He knew my heart would hardened when I felt discarded by my father

But He chose to mold me to encourage others through my humility of transparency

I’m not perfect so remove me from that pedestal

Stand up and lift your hands

Praise GOD HE lives and breathes through me

As you experience my form of praise through my poetry

Poetry has been a form of communication for centuries

You would understand that if you met with HIM daily

Social media has nothing to do with dictating your feelings

You have the ability to represent your faith by witnessing to those around you

As I smile I realize He worked it all out for my good

As I stood before His throne to ask for forgiveness

I automatically began to praise

It’s in our DNA

Worship HIM today
