Like a phoenix that rises up from the ash
I have been given a second chance Born again
Not only a second but a third, forth and fifth
And my God will forgive me up until the end

My life had been spinning darkly out of control
Hit and run crashes but ego still bold
Invincible not convincible I was young not old
With glamour and money and riches of gold

Inside I was lying and dying so cold
My Spirit was wounded my soul had been sold
Seeking and searching down paths for relief
No rescue was present until I fell off my feet

Hit my knees hard to the floor I cried and pleaded
God help me I need You, who are You, I’m defeated
I lay in a lump crushed crying and broken
Pain was so great my mind was exploding

Then little by little God whispered to me
My child I love you please come follow me
Surrender came quickly I was sick of my way
The white flag was thrown in I was to know Yahweh

Born again I was, I new not what was in store
But I was willing and open and hungry for more
That first date with Jesus was like nothing before
No chanting or meditating had opened this door

I dye to self again and again
When I take my will back I’m a crazed madman
Insanity and demons are waiting and lurking
But I have Jehovah His chain their not jerking

No weapon formed against me will prosper
Who shall separate me from the love of Christ
If God is for me who can be against me
Promises of His love, faithfulness and eternal life

Sleighing dragons slaughtering demons they are still after me
Stronger than before cause they know that I’m free
Of their stronghold and lies I combat with God’s Word
The Bible my blueprint my praises are heard

Jesus told me the path would be narrow not easy
It’s hard there’s temptation a slick road to hell
I visited hell recently when I lost my way
The price that I paid be my final farewell

God is faithful He waited and stayed
Right by my side until I turned back His way
Like the phoenix that rises out of the ash
Through the fire once again I resurrected Amen


I am a writer, poet, humorist, screenwriter, blogger. I am not a label. Out of tragedy comes comedy. I see hysterical in the simple. This is my head. I live an extraordinary ordinary life. I am inspired, creative, passionate and fiery. I have been through and will continue. I will put it down and hope you pick it up. I am exposed, vulnerable, honest and authentic. I am sarcastic and witty. My favorite thing to do is watch life and laugh and cry and start over again. I invite you to laugh, release and lighten up with me. When life has kicked your butt, it's all about the comedy! Comedy fuels me, poetry soothes me, and dancing ignites...
