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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
