Incredibly Honest Spoken Word Poem Of Trial And Hope

In this powerful poem, the writer 'theblinkyd' talks about how bad choices and tough times meant that there were "so many times I should've died," that "I was young, and I guess pretty dumb," and how he pleaded with the Lord Jesus to "let me avoid the cops." And yet, a thread of hope is woven through this written verse. "How much life did I waste, I guess that was the cost, Of being a sheep to the Shepherd that finds his lost," he concludes. 

Read the full poem below:

"Their I was, at the bottom of my bottle,
If no genie, crack another was the way I said my motto,
I was young, and I guess pretty dumb,
And I know that by that point, I was comfortably numb,
I enjoyed, the sins of the flesh,
And I could beat them all, no need to join the rest,
Their were so many times, I know I should’ve died,
So many times, that my mother should of cried,
Lord Jeses, Lord Jesus, please forgive me these shots,
Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, let me avoid the cops,
Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, don’t let me get scared,
Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus, please answer all my prayers,
That’s all I wanted, was for you to do it all,
Honestly I was hoping, you’d just let me fall,
How much life did I waste, I guess that was the cost,
Of being a sheep to the Shepherd that finds His lost."
