I Know Of a Place

I Know of a place, where people go to pray

They sing, dance, they listened, they learned

In search for peace, they engage in praise

Worships, Cries, it goes on till the end

 

 

I knew this place, I went there

It was filled with people of so many kinds

They waited for blessings, they hoped it was near

Miracles, testimonies, wonders and signs

 

 

I have known this place, for quite some time

Its songs, teachings, Its hymns, its laws

So did the people, who also gave their life

Their Service, tithes, their offerings, their all

 

 

I thought I knew this place, but I'm not so sure

The preachings, practices, many things feels wrong

The people with nothing, gave all, still poor

Gave to the pastors, priests, the Church, the Lord.

 

 

I don't know this place, not anymore

The teachings, laws, the people, the priests

Changed from everything they were before

Lost the grace, faith, the joy, the peace.

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
