There were ten of you stricken with leprosy
You saw clean men so you were filled with jealousy
You cried out to Jesus for your healing
Because you wanted to be free of that feeling.
He heard your cries and decided to cleanse
So you could all see things through a different lens
You became clean and brand new
Then you all went away with the crew.
Jesus noticed that only one came back to say thanks
He was even wearing proper pants
And things started to change and he had a better attitude
He remembered to show a little gratitude.
Jesus will give you a reward and you will be blessed
Just remember to return and you will be less stressed
Ingratitude is the universal sin
Be grateful and you of course will win.
I Can't Be Just Your Friend
You observed my perpetual sadness
And your curiosity got the better of you,
But you didn't intend to give more than words.
You texted me on Facebook Messenger
And you asked me some personal questions.
At first I was a bit hesitant to respond,
But I gave in because you persisted.
Although you weren't aware of my needs,
You said you wanted to help me.
I asked you to have a baby for me,
You didn't take my feelings seriously,
You thought I meant a surrogate mother.
I don't know why I trusted you.
I'm not looking for a sororal love.
I don't need your sympathy,
I need your fertility.
I know you can help me,
But you don't want to do it.
I thought you were an understanding person,
But I made a big mistake.
You don't love me.
You refused to let me impregnate you,
But you still want to be my friend.
I'm sorry, sweetheart,
That's not going to work,
I can't be just your friend.
Your sanctimonious approach worsens things.
I want a dulcinea, not a counsellor.
And since you won't let me make love to you,
I don't want you around me anymore.
I can't be just your friend because I love you.
Every time I look at you, I fall apart.
In secrecy, I admire your beauty,
But since you know that I'm thinking about you,
Your presence makes me very uncomfortable.
How can I speak to you from my heart?
I can't touch you in a mere friendly manner,
I'll never accept you just as a friend,
And so I'll keep my distance from you.
When I see me
I see my sister
All different nations
Matters not race
Caste, creed, not colour
One Supreme Being
Yahweh is our maker
Oh if we would all
Love one another
When I see you
I see my brother
Then it would be a beautiful world
See shining boys
Radiant girls, bouncing babies
Look at the flowers
All decked in colour
See all the trees
Making the letter Y
I used to ask why
Now I know
Its no crooked letter, mystery unravelled
Oh it reveals the name
Of our maker
Hallelujah, Yahshua Messiah
