devils hold

The devil had came and took a hold of me , but GOD
Came and set me free.
There was temptations all around and that’s where I’d be found.
Hurting myself and so many others , not caring for sisters or brothers
I was cussin , gambling, womanizing too – this was the life that I knew.
My body was invaded by drugs and booze – this was a battle
I knew I would lose.
Falling to the ground – I couldn’t get up and with the sky above
Me and the ground below – that’s when I knew I had no place to go.
I looked up to the heavens and I started to pray
“ OH GOD take this away “
There are so many things that I have to do , to find peace and happiness too.
I felt arms pick me up and make me stand – yet when I turned and looked
There was no one’s helping hands.
I heard someone speaking to me : yet there was no one that I could see.
“ just follow the path that you now see and from the devil s grasp
You will be free “
I followed this path of sun and light and all of GOD S beauties are
In plain sight.
