I Just Wanna Be Real - Spoken Word




I'm  not looking for human appeal
I just wanna be real
I'm not looking for your seal
Of approval
I just want the removal
Of unnecessary masks
And all inhumane tasks
Just one thing I ask
I just wanna be real
I want to really FEEL
My humanity
Even if it is insanity
I'm done with pretense and vanity
If you're not cool with this
I won't take your dis
Personally
Or respond cursingally
I still love you
And want you to be real too
I just want you to do you
Without all the pretense
And defense
Come! Let's make amends!
Let's be real together
And walk through the stormy weather
I know it's messy
But this is life's greatest blessing
To be REAL
And to FEEL
Our humanity
Even all it's insanity
Together
Without the need to sever
Covenants of promise
Even when we're like doubting Thomas
Let's not turn away
By the words we say
But come feel my wounds
I'll make room
For you
And I'll feel your wounds too
Cause I'm not looking for human appeal
I just wanna be real.

Religious or Righteous? - Spoken Word



You call yourself the righteous
But you're forever in a state of crisis
You put bandaids on bullet wounds
And you assume
You're the healer
The healing balm dealer
When in truth you're a reality stealer
And the deceptive wheeler
Of false security deals
Yet, you possess tremendous appeal
To the masses
In all the social classes
You force fear based decisions
And claim God's vision
To be your own
As you stone
The wounded souls
Filling the bowls
Of wrath
Through your "righteous" attack
That's just wack!
But you get away with it
I must admit
You had me for a minute
Cause you know just how to spin it
But you'll never win it
As long as Truth endures
And continually cures
The disillusioned
Through Spirit infusion
Father, forgive them!
And give them
Another chance
To take a glance
In the mirror of your Love
And SEE from eyes above
What they've failed to see
In their wretched carnality.
Forgive them! They know not what they do!
They know not YOU!
For You are LOVE!
And even they are sent from above
And not beneath
But their perception is weak
And they know not how to seek
True justice!
For we MUST THIS
Seek
To reach the mountain peak
Where You dwell
And from which we all fell
Will I in anger exclude them
Or will I in Love include them?
Christ in me the hope of glory
Challenges the story
Of revenge
Cause hostility must end!
I declare peace to you
I declare release to you!
You can be set free
And you can be
Filled with tranquility
I release the sound of reason
And I declare a new season
A season of reconciliation
Throughout every nation
Now is the time
Peace on Earth we shall find.
Be made righteous
And delivered from your state of crisis
In Jesus' name
Behold, YOUR new name
May you never perceive the same
In Jesus' name!

Limitless You - Spoken Word



The restraints are unraveling
The restraints meant to control
The expression of your redeemed soul
They are nothing but limits
Maintained by gimmicks
When in truth nothing is impossible 
And you are unstoppable 
When you are released
From the need to please
And all restraints are seized
By an all powerful Source
Who determines your true course
Your course may be invisible 
But it is divisible 
Only by ONE
Cause that's the sum of all parts
By which you've been marked 
From the very start
No more hiding 
Or confiding
In non-absolutes
It's time to get to the root
Of the true you
Back to the Garden
Where it all started 
Put away old wine skin
The leaves you used to cover your sin
No need to hide your nakedness
Or deny your awakedness 
Put on the New Man
And stand
Whole in Christ 
Rid your eyes of the scales
Of all religious tales
Myths and legends
Are no substitute for greater dimensions 
Of Truth 
Only described in books
But demonstrated through Life 
Born out of supernatural sight
And displays of supernatural Light
Descriptions 
Are poor depictions 
Of experience 
That always include beautiful variance
So, let the restraints unravel
It's time to travel
Through Life 
Displaying Light 
What an awesome sight
And wonder 
When all limits are put asunder!
The restraints are unraveling 
And I SEE you traveling
Just as you were always meant to do
Behold! The true limitless you!

Awakening - Spoken Word


When you awaken

Do not hasten

To speak

Just seek

To unfold

Out of the mold

To which you were sold

As a slave

And be remade

By your Re Creator

Be no anticipator

Just release

And receive

According to plan

You're becoming a new man

Of which no on will be a fan

So, just stand

And await

The final state

Of your awakening

For there's no mistakening

You have no control

Of the awakening of your own soul

Letting Go! - Spoken Word




My hands let go.
When I said, "I know."
I left no room to grow
And limited places to go
So, my heart lets go
As I sow
A seed of release
A seed of peace
That brings forth trees
That sway in the breeze
I drop to my knees
And I bow
As every knee shall bow
And throw down their crowns
At the sound
Of inclusion
Total infusion
No more an intrusion
Cause my hands let go
What I think I know
Cause I'd rather grow
Than know
And my heart lets go
Cause I'd rather sow
Than know
And I'd rather glow
Than remain in the dark
So, I ignite a spark
And let all things fall apart
I'm remembering
And rendering
A distant recollection
Of a forced confession
That I renounce
Now that I'm unbound
By the sound
Of inclusion
Total infusion
No longer an intrusion
Cause my hands let go
What you told me to know
If I can't be me
Inside this we
Then I'll cease to be
Cause I'd rather see
With authenticity
Than bow my knee
To a false image of me
So, my heart lets go
And I'm freed to go
Where I can really glow
A place of inclusion
Total infusion
Where I'm no longer an intrusion
But I AM
Therefore, I am
A true reflection
Without rejection
Without limits
Or gimmicks
So, my hands let go
What I think I know.

The Only Gospel That Is Good - Spoken Word



I am not contaminated by the world.
I am contaminated by the judgements
Of my own flesh that seek to divide
And to decide
What is fit
Or grossly unfit
For redemption
An ancient invention
Called religion
Known only by division
Till Christ appeared
And drew near
The temple of exclusion
Where He became an intrusion
Through the duplication
And multiplication
Of fish and bread
For the masses
An extermination of social classes
Till the rulers of division
Made the decision
They wanted Him dead
Then He said
My body is broken
Cause you want a token
But I AM come to give Life
To become ONE with My wife
So, let My body be broken
Partake of your token
If you will
Allow My blood to spill
Peace be still
For division
Is not My decision
Separating goats and sheep
Causes Me to weep
Like the one who emptied herself at My feet
And her life did speak
For generations to come
Just by what she had done
By death I redeem you
And by Life I wean you
From your decisions
Based on division
For FREEDOM is My mission
Freedom from the pain
Of masking your true name
Freedom from the vanity
And insanity
Of every decision
Marked by division
For I call you to wholeness
But you've become soulless
Soulless by decision
Soulless by division
I come in the Name of the Book
Let's take another look
At that name
You'll never see the same
For that name is Love
I AM come from above
Not from beneath
Yet, I numbered myself with the weak
And I chose to speak
On their behalf
I caused the broken to laugh
And I Myself became broken on Moses' staff
I was raised up as a new Law
I stood straight and tall
And broke down the barrier wall
Between God and man
I redeemed the land
Called Earth
And instituted a new birth
So that you could rediscover your true worth
I call you out from among divisions
And into decisions
Of the duplication
And multiplication
Of the fullness
Of wholeness
It's a new Day
So, watch what you say
You are not contaminated by the world
You are contaminated by the judgements
Of your own flesh that seek to divide
And to decide
What is fit
Or grossly unfit
For redemption
An ancient invention
Called religion
Known only by division
I AM He
Who causes you to see
I came to set captives free
That all men may know Me
And be set free
To live eternally in Me
Beginning NOW
Right here, right now
Heaven on Earth
Humanity's new birth
No other Gospel is good than the one
Embodied in the Son
Who was broken to make all souls whole
And revealed Heaven's goal
To be the duplication
And multiplication
Of the fullness
Of wholeness
In the Earth
Behold our New Birth
I am not contaminated by the world
I am contaminated by the judgements
Of my own flesh that seek to divide
And to decide
What is fit
Or grossly unfit
For redemption
An ancient invention
Called religion
Known only by division
So, peace be still
If you will.
