The Silent Sufferer

Humble Happiness And Pity Pain

Pen Me My Honesty

If You Tear The Passion From My Soul

Listen To The Skyís Sad Song



Silent Cries

Tender Eyes Pray For Me

Lord

Put Godís Love First

If God Got You Sitting High

Pride Wonít Allow You

People Canít Do

Soft Acceptance

The Uninformed

The Same Knife

All The Flies

Youíre Only As Big

Change The World ll

Simple Instructions

Change The World

A Diamondís Truth

Hard Heads

Crown of humbleness

Disobedience Makes

Sin Doesnít Start Or Stop

Shiny Things

If You Canít Except Advice

Thereís No Battle

Instant Gratification

Pride Will Lead

Just Because A Thought Pops In Head

Something To Think About

The Prodigal Son

The regret of being a fool is a painful lesson to learn but sometimes that is the only we will listen. This poem shows the regret of a foolish person wasting his blessings to fulfill his cursed desires until he got to his lowest point and came to his senses.



Was I such the fool
to leave the city of gold?
  the fine linen
         and sweet rolls,
the cool pools
and shaded trees,
the luxury ships
on the high seas
The beautiful music
and flower's blooms,
the lovely view
of the palace rooms
The cool waters
from the glorious springs
and the delicacies
the servants bring
The peaceful nights
and the warm bed
and the soft pillow
around my head
The gentle wind
off the bay,
the warm feeling
when I pray
My future was sealed;
Now with husks
 my stomach's filled
I will repent and say,
Father forgive me, thy son;
Forever, I'm thy servant
