I Got Something That Doesn't Make Sense


I made it through some storms of life.
I made it through some heartaches and strife.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

People don't understand my story,
They look at what I have but to God be the glory.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

I ask God to make me strong so he sends me a struggle,
I beat the same devil they did with less education and a much harder tuggle.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

I wasn't supposed to make it across the stage because of my background.
Graduated with honors but yet to my family I'm nothing but a hound.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

How can I have what I have coming from where I came from,
I'm supposed to be a welfare dependant, on drugs in the streets, living like a bomb.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

My family I love but don't quite understand them.
The wrong things I do are right and the right things they condemn.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

I thank God for the Holy Ghost and teaching me the way,
I want to get better and grow stronger each and every day.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

They don't understand my pain, my guilt, my lies, or my shame.
I've turned a new leaf, got things I never dreamed of, so who's the blame?

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

I'm a child of God, a king who blesses me ridiculously
I gone places, seen things that another child says are unthinkably.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

So what do I have? I have a way out the hood, something that doesn't make sense but God has made for my good, I know it was God who blessed me so, no I don't have it misunderstood.

He's been by my side and loved me while in my mother's womb,
Better yet he thought about me a long time ago while he laid in the tomb.

So don't hate on me because he showered on me his love
Cause the same God who gives to me is sitting waiting on you up above.

I GOT SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
