Think its Frustration?
By: Mervin Budram Jr.
Frustrated, why you may ask
Well just look at the obvious facts
Inconsistency, negligence being dragged around by my pants
God, this is not what I view life to be, maybe I should face the facts
Iâll never move forward until I wake up
Get truth in and stop wearing make up
Stop dreaming and start being
All that Heâs called me to be and do
Get in order and move out of the zoo
Iâve always heard, âif your work hard you get it.â
But reality check, thatâs no good if itâs just say it
You have to really get up and do it
Yeah that means work, energy DOING SOMETHING
If this seems hard, then men! Youâre just too lazy.
Yeah maybe for a while there I sounded confused
Lost and or perhaps, needed the Good News
But guess what, everyoneâs got to blow some steam
And this is my way without getting mean
So to clear things up for you, hereâs the truthâ¦..
God is doing his work in me
Changing my gloom and giving me glee
Re-structuring my mind, updating my operating system
Overhauling my engine and changing my pistons
So the process seems long and hard
But itâs better than sitting around being a fraud
Ineffective and irrelevant to this new era
So if your wondering whatâs Up!!!!
Take a good long hard look true Jesusâ eyes.
