Just Ask The Question

Each step I take to make,
Is not guaranteed...
With a forgiveness clause attached.
If life was about that...
Many would sit back,
Expecting forgiveness for every misdeed.
And for every act they did intentionally.

I am exactly where I should be.
To comprehend misunderstandings.
And accept without denying,
A past that has happened...
For me to welcome.
Yet will not return again.

I do nothing less,
But to put forward my best effort.
Mistakes to have been made,
I have acknowledged to correct.
And taking that step alone,
Was not as difficult as I expected.
Proud I am to have stayed conscious.
To know my mistakes made,
Could someone else affect.

I am exactly who I should be.
After leaving confusion of my identity.
Or have others believe,
I was easy to disrespect and leave.
With a bitterness to feel.
And emotions kept hidden to not reveal.

Until...
I began to realize from my birth,
Experiencing obstacles to face and remove...
Had been done with faith not to debate.
Knowing God was with me and everywhere.
And I did not have to tolerate,
The actions of fools who would test and expect...
I could be left to become a fool too.
And I tried so many times.
But being a fool I refuse to prove I could do.

Each step I take to make,
Is done with an awakened purpose to serve.
A purpose deserving on a daily basis,
My complete attention to give to it.
Without deluding a truth to deny what's true.
Or creating new excuses to dilute reality.

Yesterdays to have lived,
I may keep remembered to reminisce.
But to relive them is not a wish I fantasize.
Since my life to live it is a reward I pride.
With each step I take to make moving forward,
Blessed to not reject this gift to cherish

A gift given to not just let drift away,
Without making each day to prove...
I have a purpose. I have identity.
And proud I am of it too!
How about you?
Are you letting your gift become disrespected?
Are you living your life to live 'less' effective?
OR are you 'devoted' to become what God expects?

Just ask the question...
'Am I devoted to become what God expects.
With each step I take to make.
Is it real.
Or is it faked.
Am I living my life to repeat this mistake.
To pretend...
I live with faith.'

Just ask the question.
Then you will begin to feel the right connection.
All you have to do is just ask the question.
Then you will begin to feel the right connection.

Just ask the question.
Then you will begin to feel the right connection.
All you have to do is just ask the question.
Then you will begin to feel the right connection.
