Silent Warnimg

a perched cat on the basement parchment
time has allowed silence to ensue
we seek for justice to stake are claim
while deep inside we are going insane
lest I refrain a notion of conquest
all of life is simply a test may I digress
we each have a gift but some let it go
seek a higher power in the way you should go
yet we move to slow one step at a time
we climb the barbed wire of success
but to get to what the world outside make me want to throw up
but just as you have thought about giving up
silent warning come through
have we bitten off more then we could chew
if we make are beds in hell I goty a good story to tell
a street walker works her beat in hopes to get a treat
she falls on some hard times no money to pay for any lines
then one day she wants to give it all up
a minister comes to her aid
offering her free salvation cause she has one foot in the grave
so she says yes to Jesus & breaks the bonds to free us
gives up her life of sin to begin over again
silent warning takes you to places with traces that you'll never know
many today hide behind a shell getting ready for there place in hell
we must give it all up to gain it all
don't look back when your hands on the plough
