»"Forgive Me Father" for I am Human!«

by Lethal Poet, September 18, 2010

I have come to the point
Of not sharing Tears
For my people


To pray and chant to Jah
So he can give 'em strength
To face their fears

Dear God please lend me
Your ears


And don't mind my tears

Send us your spirit
To show us the way


Lead us not astray

I pray
To you and only... YOU...

...For Peace and Happiness

But most of all
For the purpose of my existance...Amen!
