Treasure Island

(April 27,1992 / Sauteurs, Grenada)

Are you being true to yourselves? ? ?

Are you being true to yourselves When you clock a 4.0 and you know by tomorrow you nah fi even remember what you wrote in the tests?
Are you being true to yourselves when you know that God gave us all distinguished gifts but you think to yourselves that you're the every thing?
Are you being true to yourselves when on Saturday evenings you go to secular parties and shows and on Sunday mornings you show up inna the church like you're more holy and pure... than everyone else?
Are you being true to yourselves when you know the word of God straight from your head, not partially, at least that's what you think. You think you know the words entirely, when you choose to share it with friends and you're not even living accordingly.... Instead you're living in pretense.
Are you being true to yourselves when you know that Christ came to demonstrate the true meaning of faith, and how to live in accordance to grace, but you believe that somehow you got to ask of him for you to get your wants and needs when he has already given everything to you. How could you forget?
This is so redundant, asking negates faith.
You need to accept his proposition and learn to acknowledge that Christ's not the problem it's the things he hates.
it's our sins! Yes, that's the heavy weight that's keeping us back... yea!
Are you being true to yourselves?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
