They Diminishing

  • They wanted to keep me small, confined, and defined 
  • so that they would be satiated and satisfied 

 

  • They wanted me all for themselves and their vainglory 
  • so that they would have me listen to all their same stories

 

  • They did their best to control, contain, and oppress me
  • so that they could easily depress, suppress, and possess me

 

  • Fear was their currency 
  • and they used it oh so fervently 

 

  • Shame was their tender
  • and they used it like a monopoly vendor 

 

  • Guilt was their circulation 
  • and they used it to the point of adoration

 

  • Then and them, I listened and I obeyed
  • for I feared being left out a stray

 

  • Then and them, I worshipped and I revered
  • for I feared being labeled weird 

 

  • Then and them, I idolized and I venerated 
  • for I feared being verbally flagellated 

 

  • The prison of the mind is a most terrifying place 
  • only those who choose escape will Grace embrace

 

  • Little by little, my Spirit began awakening 
  • Little by little, my life began liberating 

 

  • I tried until I tired to help them understand 
  • in seeing the beauty of the Spiritual Land

 

  • I truly did my very best
  • I wanted them being just as blessed

 

  • The Life Giving Waters, I shared as best I could
  • but all that happened was my being ridiculed 

 

  • Upon my shoulders, their Souls I did take 
  • until someone said, “There’s a Savior for that, no-one will He forsake”

 

  • Everyone can download Him for free
  • The greatest of life’s treasures will He be for thee

 

  • Everyone has the option to befriend Him 
  • and be His very next of kin

 

  • And with that Truth, little by little, I let them go
  • for my life now lay, in the Flow 

 

  • And now, to they and them, I bid you adieu, 
  • that is, wholly to God, I commend you
