Can't Be Swayed By A Blind Curve


You can never make me wait.
Because I'm dedicated.
And my steps are moved with faith.
No you can never make me wait.
Or control me with some cheap trick,
To restrict my faith that's strickly fixed.

You wont find me with clowns around.
I'm not part of a circus.
I live my life with a purpose.

You wont find me with clowns around.
I'm not part of a circus.
I live my life with a purpose.
And can't be swayed by a blind curve,
Since I know 'Who' it is I serve.

I don't give in to false laws.
Or rules to follow that are moth balled.
And I'm not open to wasting debates,
With anyone about this path I take.
And I'm not one who hesitates,
Or procrastinates...
To taste the baiting what fakers make.

You wont find me with clowns around.
I'm not part of a circus.
I live life with a purpose.

You wont find me with clowns around.
I'm not part of a circus.
I live my life with a purpose.
And can't be swayed by a blind curve.
I know who I am and 'Who' I serve.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
