o deeply know something
But ignore or be blind to the cause.
Reason, knowledge of one’s self, roadblocks,
Triggers, is to remove one’s self
Out of his or her own way.
Expectation is one major road to unhappiness.
For expectation causes false beliefs,
Which cause one to lose focus,
As in driving a car.
Lost to his or her crossroads.
On which road his or hers belong.
Mankind’s nature is to panic,
Damaging your thought’s reason.
Mind trapped into society’s ways
Of being like a puppet pulled by strings.
With a saying,
“I am a made man, the streets raised me.”
But not me,
God made me and with blessing
God raises me.”
So I follow God’s voice
And walk through God’s land,
Live by God’s plan,
That’s what I understand.
So my cause to move
Is through God’s breath
And the effect is to rest
In God’s plan.
