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.
