What You Need to Know


What You Need to Know

This crazy love leaves me feeling so fanatical

Over zealous like a circus clown getting all radical

Tactical is my game as I spit verses so inspirational

Raises you out of your seat and gets you to feel sensational

I’m preaching down the street and I make a declaration

My words are being carried as I make a demonstration

With my actions for you to see my faith and dedication

I will watch the Lord renew and bring my soul restoration

Gaze up at the stars where I see something astronomic

Won’t get caught up in the words of the Koran that is Islamic

I’ll be setting fire to my heart that burns like kerosene

Running and not looking back for there is no need for gasoline

Like David and Goliath I will bring you down like a giant

But when it comes to trusting God I will not be defiant

For in this Christian life where sin is highly forbidden

I must open up my heart and share the truth I’ve kept hidden

I dwell on dangerous topics such as Buddhism and Satanism

Controversial matters that are full of lies and is under cynicism

What a hopeless decision to falter on that sinks like the titanic

This pathway of life will cause troubles and only make you panic

So here I glow like a torch ready to ignite a spark so hot

It burns the altar that’s been soaked in water for it’s a holy spot

Like Elijah when he was challenged by Baal up on the mountain

God dropped fire from the sky that shot into the air like a fountain

He springs new life despite a drought that can devastate and devour

Storms will move through like stampedes that can act like firepower

However Your words always find a way to pierce me like a thorn

I have watched as a mother cried when she held onto her newborn

I will persevere with skills that only a professional could handle

Will you plant a seed to watch another glow up like a candle?

I’ll stir up debris like a tornado or tear you up like an earthquake

So I can watch the world turn to prayer as your hands begin to shake

For I am here to tell you that a strong faith in God is very vital

We can’t let depression bring us down and make us feel suicidal

We all can live in harmony if we would all just simply congregate

So don’t nose-dive like a kamikaze who is ready to terminate

Know what you truly believe inside and don’t live by a hypothesis

Have facts that will make others think that actually makes a lot of sense

Don’t guess on things you are unsure about and might have to dismiss

But rather live on God’s principles so you can be a real life witness

How do you alleviate such pain causing a loss of encouragement?

Who do you trust in times of weakness when you struggle to repent?

Where do you go when you can’t bear the world in your hands?

A godless civilization that doesn’t care and fails to give reprimands

Do you believe the tarot and palm readers hopeless superstition?

Can you call upon a genie for a wish or are they just an apparition?

Will you fold under the pressure of the Mormons ridiculous teachings?

Or share an unprecedented truth that speaks of Jesus’ preaching

Know the magical transformation that my body will have soon allowed

It’s a condition inside that only God could impose with my knees bowed

So with the highest acts of exaltation I will shout praises that You deserve

Never letting up or backing down as I peer ahead and see a sudden curve

I know His eyes are tracking each of my footsteps like a satellite

His love burns me like ultraviolet sunbeams that are far too bright

That my skin blisters from the intensity of the magnificent heat

Lord, help me find true comfort cause I’m not here to seek defeat

My bold words speak with such power as they detest iniquity

defend my soul with righteous acts practiced by Saints of late antiquity

Spilling out affirmations of my faith that remains rooted deep

I have trouble finding time to even give myself much sleep

My God’s story that’s filled with miracles, salvation, faith, and grace

Is my source of strength, hope, and light within the human race

Never shall I question the works of His wonderful universe

For I have experienced great joy and will never attempt to reverse

You showed me how to be a disciple that mirrors your reflection

Now all I want is to walk in truth and seek after Your perfection

Cause I struggled for so long with only being satisfied with so little

But now I’m ready to become the man that you are trying to whittle

Brett Fletcher

shhhhh commented on What You Need to Know


a bit hard to read with the small font size. But regardless a great write and message once again. well done. -Tonya

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
