I've been discussing this poem for a little while and today, I'm going to share my poem entitled "Sweet." There's so much behind that one simple word. Watch the video to get the full effect of attitude. ;)
I see ya, mean girl! What's wrong with you? That meanness cascades off you like the waters of Niagara Falls.
What's wrong with you? Your meanness is worse than the sting of a scorpion Are you puttin' me on? What's underneath all that attitude? Cuz you ain't got one ounce of gratitude.
Is it the guile of your lips, or the sway of your hips that makes you think you have so much power? Te way you be cuttin' them eyes, and twistin' them lies, makes all your love oh so sour!
Your words fly out your mouth like a swarm of vultures! Eatin' up everything in sight. Destroying the good, picking over what's dead, those things you need to speak life to, but you won't. Instead. You prey. You hunt. You tease any and everything you please!
Is it the roll of your eyes, the clap of your thighs, or the pain of your lies?
Is it the cloud of your thoughts, the trickery you taught, or the wrath that you brought?
I got you, mean girl! What's wrong? All up inside of me, taking over the very heart of me.
I want the world to know the real me, because over me...you have no authority!
There's only One who can save you. One who can carry you. One who can handle you.
His love is so deep, it has the power to make you weep. It's strong when you're weak.
Try Him out one time. He's guaranteed to change your mind. His love is oh_so_sublime!
Hey, mean girl! I saw you just the other day. On your knees, head high, arms upraised, was that you who was beginning to pray?
I saw the tears fall from your eyes, I heard you apologize, your thought turned to the skies.
I heard the words you spoke, soothing, calming, reassuring, life-giving, hope-invoking, peace-providing! You repent of your lies, cast aside your pride, and in Him you will be abide.
Say, mean girl! Was that you so contrite, so polite, and humble in all your ways, seeking a Savior's face?
Hey, mean girl! Hey, mean girl! I said, Hey! Mean girl! I thought you should know...Your sweet is starting to show.
