Aiming for nothing but net,
that is, a net worth of one billion George Washington
Dollar bills paying off these utility bills and moving up to Beverly Hills
Aiming to satisfy my lust and greed, but yet
I feel this birth curse called sin, weighing me down like a ton
a ton of bricks falling back to back on my back - dying of cheap thrills!
Aiming to turn this all around
forget the rhyme scheme and the stanza length - free verse
Spill all of my soul's hurts
I'm a man longing to do the Father's will
the bible tells me to be perfect because my Father is perfect
that way, all who see me will glorify the Father of lights
but I've been hiding in the dark.
All my doubts, fears, and youthful lust are stuffed in a rainbow coloured bag - it's not just Orange that is the new black.
The word of God also says that in my weakness he perfects his strength. Jesus was heaven sent so that he can experience our anguish first hand. He still has pierced hands from the nails used to crucify him. He is able to empathize with us when we are tempted to hide the scars. Abba, I will testify that your greatness and mercy have set me free and are constantly changing my aims.
Aiming to run the good race
Aiming to fight the good fight
Aiming to be a source of grace
Aiming to shine glorious light
