Spoken Word – Standing Room Only


STANDING ROOM ONLY

12March2012
 
No greater love has ever been shown
Than from HE whose son sits at the right of the throne.
Surrounded by elders, I believe it’s twenty-four,
Engulfed in sounds of worships and drowning sounds of adores.
 
Yes, it’s true I just made… those verbs into nouns
Cause THEY transcend all earthly…. grammatical bounds
For what THEY are is far beyond … any limited human act
Of what I can do, and far beyond what I lack.
  
The throne room is like no room From the distant past or yet to come.
To be in the presence of all that energy, stronger than man’s atomic bombs
Lightenings and thunderings merge… with heavenly uttered voices
Proceeding from the throne in melodic-like choruses.
Lamps numbered to seven showing forth un-earthly glow
Revealing aspects of God’s spirit that mere man could never know.
 
Some believe he’s the source of a unified three
That label being named, The Divine Trinity
While others resolve to the idea of a single HE
Who contains all aspects within that one personality
While that debate exists, it doesn’t begin to compare
To what I KNOW is Truth, Which is….He simply CARES. 
HE CARES FOR ME!
 
Sometimes I lift…my hands to portray
The stretched-forth-need that I’m compelled to convey
That runs deep inside….my life-seeking soul
I need a breakthrough…i NEED A CHANGED VIEW….Like Alice in Wonderland’s rabbit hole.
That sends me to a place that’s out of this world
Where upside down is right side up…
No more random sips from the bitter cup.
If only I could achieve what I know to be my heart’s dream
To be in the space inhabited by the one… in whom my faith believes.
 
That I might know him… and the power because he lives
The fellowship of suffering with him, new life to me he gives.
I just don’t wanna know his name and never see his face
The intent I have is to make it in while riding on his amazing grace.
 
My goal is to make it, my goal is to rest
In the place where God gives access to heaven’s ultimate best
I may not have reserved, one of the twenty-four seats
But I plan to make up there….for more than just a peak…
I Wanna stand in the center, in the midst of it all
Crying HOLY…HOLY…HOLY…. With all the rest of ya’ll
I don’t know what you have planned for the middle of next week
But if God says “Come my people”… ya’ll can forget about ME!
I’ve waited too long. I’ve gone through too much
To get caught up in the madness of this earthly stuff.
 
So when you see me acting funny, and sounding kinda loud
It’s probably ’cause I’m chasing worship benefits… that exist beyond the clouds
I’m striving to keep my life honest, not just momentarily Holy
Cause true worshippers will pack the throne room…It’s STANDING ROOM ONLY!

Spoken Word – TOUCH ME


Touch Me
28JULY2011_P4C

Touch Me… Hold Me… Let your warmth bestow upon me only what I need for now.
I’m not starving, but I am hungry for the love I once tasted before my spirit dwindled down.

Hungry for The Love that makes me weep when I make it
Hungry for The Love that’s strength to my weightiness.
Hungry for the Love that’s invincible to the struggles of life that quake.,,YES….

I am strong but this trouble’s been with me far too long
And now has overtaken my innocent view of Love….and You. That feels so wrong.

So, I am left with a love that’s fake and shallow
Devoid of my Heart, so large but hollow.

I’m left with a heart that’s full of alphabetic fear….
 Fear of “T” – TRUST
Fear of “R” – REJECTION
Fear of “I” – ISOLATION
Fear of “C” – COMMITMENT
Fear if “K” – KINETIC INTIMACY

I’m Left holding the devil’s TRICK and… that’s no TREAT!

My GOD, why have you allowed this destructive fear  to reside within me?
What possible task in your master plan could make THIS the answer be?
You created me Man in the Eden Gar-den
With dominion and authority
Now I feel less than he who can conquer it all
I dwell on my deficiency.

You said ” be fruitful “, I Did!
You said ” multiply”,  I Did!
You said “Don’t touch”,  She Did! Well, then I did. Ok. We did.  Not Good. Very Not Good.

So I ask myself again,
My GOD, why have you allowed this destructive fear to reside within me?
What possible task in your master plan could make THIS the answer be?

And, like always your answer was ordained and preset, just waiting on my needs to completely be met
By… your word. Holy.

For your Word says Perfect love casts out all fear
So perfect the love that draws me nearer
To you… and only you.

But, I’m alone and sometimes lonely. I need body-heat that satisfies the longing of my heart, the creativity of my mind and the titillation of my man-meat… I NEED A WOMAN!
But what will it cost if I turn from your perfect love to embrace a love that’s cheap?
Some days…I don’t even care so you place YOUR Grace on sale
And I purchase much needed rest and peace. Thanks!

I want to be your follower because your son has paved the way.
I long to be a worshipper in truth and spirit always.
This struggle within me, reminder of humanity, makes walking this journey so keen
As much as I love, honor and adore you, the lack of HER love makes me mean…ingless.

I’m not obsessed, depressed or possessed, Oh, I vividly see what’s for me.
To be loved by her and still embraced by you,
My God, My Savior and King.

So, Touch my mind so that it is more like yours
Hold my heart and and re-open the doors that allows perfect love to flow in.
For  to be carnally minded is not in your will and to be alone without you would be my sin.

Grant me my desire to be loved by her, the wife that knows you first.
Allow me to find the queen of my life, she who has already been birthed
Into your kingdom, full and free….
Just Waiting…just waiting for ME to be…. Touched… By… YOU!

….And that’s that piece!
