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
