Birth pains I feel down my spine
continuing down my veins and heard through my whines.
I mean, look at this problem that I have to face.
I mean, I’m trying to figure out but I keep making the mistake.
Of trying to be a better person to the ones that take
from the ones who try to be the person to them that’s not fake.
The pain comes every single time I want to say
the three words, eight letters to the man I want to stay
with but I can’t seem to utter them after he leaves my sight.
Even if I try to I begin to cry all the time.
Jabs at my heart and gashes at my mind,
filling me with sorrow and then leaving me behind.
Dealing with this pain is like dealing with pregnancy,
the contractions come and go like a radio frequency.
Holding my stomach, not trying to buckle over
but I think its over when he says “I’m over her”.
So, I limp to my medicine cabinet and shuffle through the pills
of pride, lust, greed, lies, gluttony, envy, and finally reach God’s will.
I open up the cap and pop two pills in my mouth
to ease my pain until the next time I go south.
See, I always do that when I am in need of some deliverance
because most of the time there’s nothing wrong with my interests.
Except now , Now I am ready to die
and fall on the ground to just lay there and cry.
So I decided to read the label of God’s will
and I noticed the first words “I do not KILL”.
I kept on reading and was surprised to find
that God’s will contains all things that are kind.
Like humility, grace, happiness, peace, and love.
Which God said only comes from Him, that is above.
So I looked up the symptoms that requires this prescription
only to find on God’s will container a reassuring inscription.
“Over dosage of God’s will will only benefit your well being;
After taking your pills your blindness will become seeing”.
The ingredients included the following in scripted below:
God’s son dying on the Cross and defeating all your foes.
Prayer line available for the ones who truly need it.
1000% Peace of mind to only rest your spirit.
Lastly, conquering everything and everyone who is against you
and bonus ingredient included being part of God’s crew.
I took one looked and now I’m hooked to God’s will for me.
My birth pains gone, my troubles fled, and now I’m finally free.
