Life in full Color

Written by d116v. Posted in Poetry

A spoken word I performed during a youth event, with the theme being Life in Full Color.

About the importance of transparent accountability.

________________________

This corner of color is only registered in your brain because of the light that shines on the platform.

If you were to remove the sources of light, you’d remove quite an important human sense,

with this room being completely dark, It’d be like removing your sight.

You see the physical difference between light and dark,

Is simply the absence of a superior.

And with the topic being “living life in full color”

It is important to know that doing so requires us to live in the light.

You see darkness was ‘created’ when he who once was an angel started changing within,

And the light that God placed in him started to dim.

When self-righteousness whispered, and pride started to yell

The spectrum of color faded, and blue skies turned to grey

It was like 40 days of rain, but hold on – a promise was made

So this is for those that want to change

For those that are so sick of the mundane

So tired of all kinds of memories made

The faces of hopeless women engraved onto their membranes

Constantly deleting their browser history, without their history being changed.

Tired of a lifestyle of routine and addiction

Leaving them spiritually torn

Innocent enough to safe it for marriage, but guilty for looking at porn

So sick of trying it on their own, simply not having the strength to stop

This was my personal battle until I went through God’s photoshop.

A place where my faults were removed,

A place where my mind was retuned

Colors renewed, my life was made new

You see, I tricked you – This is not a poem, it is a spotlight

I am handing you an opportunity, giving you the gift of artistry

The creative skill and ability to live according to your full color scheme.

This is the spectrum of light simplified, narrowed down into a bold saying:

I showed obedience in words, but in my heart I disobeyed.

And I wondered why God didn’t accept the sacrifices I gave,

this is my story of Abel and Cain.

And it’s heartbreaking to see friends not changing

Patterns, and desires, emphasized in the dark

Because in the light it would require accountability and change.

The only weapon to fight sin with is the spear that pierced Jesus’ side *1

At that moment on the cross when the light of life gave his life

And darkness came across the land, the Author of Salvation’s plan

To restore the colors he created, and mankind back to where it began

In the midst of the day, He died for our sinful desire and craving

Christ slapped YOLO in the face, this is the original daylight saving.

Hope is here, let’s embrace Him.
