Why Have I Changed?

© 2006 Tyrone Vincent Banks



My Princess; I must tell you about the changes that Iím going through

I think that the time has come for me to increase the knowledge of my faith

Itís not done to alienate you in any way; it is for you and our children that I do this.


It is said that the father can pass on to his children and family

All of the blessings that have been bestowed upon him

I want to pass on the peace that Iíve found since Iíve found myself


Reading the Bible is like when I met, fell in love with and married you

Two strangers that were already there, crossed paths

Slowly the guard was let down and the heart exposed

Quickly I fell in love with you and as each day passes I fall in love with you

Again and again


Whenever I saw you, my heart would beat uncontrollably

I wanted so much to become a better person

I wanted so much to be calm and unafraid

I wanted so much to hold back the negative words and say only the positive


We knew that we were right for each other and were willing to fight for what was true .

In spite of the enemies who did not believe in us or wanted us to fail Ė we prevailed.


The word has remade my spirit

I fell in love with the word of God and I do not want to part from it

Two strangers that were already there, crossed paths

Slowly the guard was let down and the heart exposed

Quickly I fell in love with the word and as each day passes I fall in love with God

Again and again


If there are any gains from this faith Ė and there will beÖ

I will gladly share this with you


I am willing to fight for this knowledge

In spite of the enemies who do not believe in us or want us to fail Ė I will prevail.


Through Christ I will prevail.


Yes, I want to spread the Gospel.

Not to distance myself from you but to bring us closer.


Iíve always wanted a job where I can help others gain something meaningful

To give someone a little bit of hope when discouraged

And work for a boss who does not criticize, chastise or lay me off to save money.


If I can share with anyone a portion of the life-saving peace that I feel now

Iím overcome with emotions because I am to do something that is right.


I like a challenge Ė you know thisÖ

I want to embark on a challenge to not curse, not drink and not hate.

The reward is so great and one that cannot be counted


I will not tamper with the faith that we have promised to your Church

I will only strengthen the faith that I left behind over 2 decades ago.


The time has come

To separate the doers from the Sayers

The healers from the slayers

The cursing from the prayers

The light from the dark

I and my faith will not part


All I ask is that you understand

That before you will stand a better man

Devoid of weaknesses and stress

Determined to do his best

Let me continue my quest

I and the family shall be blessed

With everlasting peace and love

That can only be attained from our God up above


I love you Nydian and I will not sway from the path that we take

Finding God is righteous

This is not a mistakeÖ

when one person in a pair suddenly finds an intense new interest, even a positive one, it can be frightening for the other. keep that in mind
