Selfless Love Leaves a Beauty Mark

Slander and gossip is all around

What is new?

We rise to fall down 

We deserve it after all

My ear is itching 

In my chair I am twitching 

Are you talking about me too?

I am the talk of the town

You know it’s true

The billboard with a picture of a clown 

The jester who is about to fall

Looking for peace is only wishing 

My ripped paper heart needs stitching 

I don’t want to hear, “I love you”

I take a road trip for a fresh breath of air

The journey frees my soul

Once I let go I don’t care

My spirit is my only hope

This world lost it’s spark

And left me in the dark

It’s time for me to take control

Selfless love is genuine and fair

But the opposite leaves a hole

But selfless love can take you anywhere 

It will nurture and help you cope

Here my spirit can just park

As it leaves a beauty mark

And the rhythm of love remains full

Revival Meeting


I am in this room filled with a zealous spirit

To need to yield is apparent

The awakening time has drawn near

While the refreshing love is oh so clear


I check my heart to make sure I am ready

The music from the band is trickling in the air

The djembe marches on steady

The singers speak, “We are with the Lion Tribe of Judah, release your care”


The room is filled with paintings and signs like “revival” and “stronghold”

I feel restless, this is now the time to be bold

I bring my heart and knees to the ground

Immediate into this musical cerebral sound

“I am here, rest my child,” I hear

“Don’t give up on Me, for I created You”

I shed a tear

“I make beginnings anew”


Then after the music, a pastor starts to speak

About the only One you shall seek

“The Kingdom life is at hand

For it is in our hearts and where we stand”


After that the pastor comes up and lays hands on folks

I feel need to come up

While people are saying, “Glory” and “Our God of Hope”

I am come up and feel the spirit erupt

It comes like a tornado

Through a tornado alley in Laredo

I revitalize my motives and internal being

I let go; the heat wave is so freeing


I feel my head get heavy and knees lock

I fall to the floor

I go into a Holy Spirit shock

I am left with a chilling sensation and the One I adore


I will come again if I can stand

For another time oh so grand

To experience the full enthralling vibe

Of the Lion Judah’s charismatic tribe
