Secret Places

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races.

Those secret places when
I'm alone with my thoughts
If by Jesus my soul was bought
How much time do I have before I'm caught
Up short for being naught

What about the times that I did legal crimes
Like breaking hearts, lying and cutting lines
That was nothing compared to washing her mind and treating them like concubines

How about the secret I'm too ashamed to share
How people would think about me I care
So I act like Burt from the TV series "Soap" I snap my fingers and it ain't there
That seems to work for a while
Then I start acting out and showing my ass wild style

How about the place filled with shame and disgrace
Am I to blame for that space
It wasn't my fault I believe
Only to learn by that lie I'd been deceived

That place where alone I must go
I drop on my Knees and wish life wasn't so
I holler out loud and ask the creator why
I shake my head from left to right and rub my eyes

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races.

There's a secret place I go to get it right
I make promises to self, set goals, and my demons fight
I usually travel there in the middle of the night
And try not to alert others who ask questions like "you sure you're alright?"

Those secret places of refuge for me
Oh Lord, You said You would hide me
In the valley of the shadow of death you said you would guide me
Please hear me, I need to confide in thee
I'm having a hard time, how can I just let it be?

Turn from my ways and seek Your face?
Then from heaven I will hear and feel Your grace?
Renew my way of thinking I must try to embrace
If I want different results in my secret place

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races.

I didn't forget that secret she told me about
How he'd come in late and put his hand over your mouth
"Shh!" he said and don't tell
Her childhood stolen her life a living hell!

There also was a place where a fetus did abort
Always in my mind a regret I do report

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races

It's So Hard

It's So Hard

It's so hard to say goodbye
Like in the movie Cooley High
Did Cochise really have to die?

A popular rap song claims,
It's so hard just to get by
So we get high

It's so hard to suffer and not know why
It's so hard to watch a grown person cry

It's so hard to keep the prize in my eye
When hard times seem to keep pouring from the sky

It's so hard to believe I can fly
When circumstances tell me that's a lie

It's so hard to know I didn't try
To do my best and not let the moment pass me by

It's so hard to be honest and not be sly
When it seems easier to be awry

It's so hard to not be that guy
The one my ego won't let lie

It's even harder to tell to I
That I can change if I really try!

What Did You Say?

What Did You Say?

Is that a fact?
Did you really mean that?
Yes, to be exact!
Cut you some slack?
Well, listen here Jack!

Wow, that hurt so much!
Don't you know words cut?
Way down deep they touch.
Feel them more than a kick in the butt.
Didn't think you could say such
Words that pierce my mind So, my heart I clutch

Wish time could rewind
Make me forget the unkind
Way that you find
To give me a piece of your mind

Thought words did no harm?
Well, they work like a charm.

Sticks and stones may break bones, and take this with you home.

Think about what you say.
Words can never be taken away!
