Once upon a time
There was a man that could rhyme
He was a man of God
But he liked the applaud
Though he didn’t like to be in a crowd
He would cover his head with a shroud
He would stand or sit in the back
For fear that he would be attacked
He was too anxious to speak out loud
For fear that people would think he was proud
His body was covered with art
That told a story of his heart
He lived in bondage and chains
To an addiction that hardened his veins
He found freedom on two wheels
But the addiction always nipped at his heels
He would give in every time
Followed by guilt and shame they would chime
He had a heart of gold
From him that wouldn’t be told
His life he lived in the dark
Which cast a shadow over his heart
Though life he lived in the night
The shadow would soon be covered with light
The addiction he had to admit
To Christ he soon would submit
This man knew he lived lost
Redemption came through the Cross
Christ softened his heart
Allowing Grace to give him a new start
