Life don’t happen just like it’s planned
And can come apart like a rubber band
Ever’ thang can’t be anticipated
And our problems seem to be exacerbated
But the very ones trying to advise –
They seem to add to our demise
Consider then – what does motivate
The advice we hear, is it love or hate
Ever’ problem has an answer – that’s a fact
If you know where to go, and how to act
Satan just wants your soul to freeze
But that’s when we have to get on our knees
We don’t need a lot of consternation
And can live a life of anticipation
‘cause you can’t name or number all He’ll do for you
If you believe His Word and to Him be true. ec

PS – satan’s soul-freezing desire thing is somewhat correct while we are alive – after death, it changes temperatures dramatically.

Good writing! I once wrote a "rap" that I used in a sermon. I don't think I could do it again.

Now, rap is an acquired taste, but I like what you've done here. Pretty clear ending there, too, MrEddie. Very nice...

Congrats on your Rap Poem. I have printed it, and particularly like your postscript. I do not like
Rap, but the poem was great.
Thanks for visiting Herons Nest.

bonita - Thanks - my inspiration (?) varies and bounces from moment to moment. :)

merle - Don't care for rap either, unless I can guide the message. Thanks. ec

Good one, I'm a sucker for rhyming poetry, not that other stuff, even your rapp.

grannyfiddler - Now that would be a sight - and a sound! It might make more sense than some of the music they have out now though. ec
