Gospel Truth - Poem by Aram Stefanian

Don't you lay a guilt trip on me
Pardon my French, I'm an off-the-wall guy
Maybe I am my own worst secret enemy
Overacting to be human in order not to die

My present life is such a raw deal
For long I've been on a losing streak
It takes too long for inner pain to heal
While face to face with another tough break

I wanna out of that vicious circle
Even death has been a blessing in disguise
I wish God performed such a miracle
That all of us could from the ashes rise

What's gonna happen over the long haul?
Will another Adam bite into forbidden fruit?
I hope you might save your immortal soul
There's still time to perceive the gospel truth

    Beware of anyone who purports to speak the gospel truth for you, especially one who sets up a rhyming scheme and then can't even follow it. (Report) Reply
