Worshipped and hated some herbs have now become,
What a crime against Godís only begotten Son,
He created all that greenery for us to use,
Not for some to fall into substance abuse.
Indeed drugs were made by God for noble intent,
All the same what did Satan cleverly invent,
Humans sitting brain and mindlessly spaced out,
People whacked of their faces staring about.
Tell, was it loneliness, sadness, anger or hate,
An experiment, or just some fun with a mate,
Hooking you on dulling your inner misery,
Spaced out and bleary-eyed continually?
How can you ever discover lasting glory,
Instead of always dreaming an unreal story,
Doped out realities speaking truth-less lies,
Glassily staring at yourself through bloodshot eyes?
I know, I have so many questions while you ask,
Is scoring street drugs such a respectable task,
Especially when your own supply has run dry,
And addiction within begins its wailing cry?
Surely your efforts in life turned out in vain
and that brings us back onto our topic again,
You loosing the battle for personal control,
Letting the devil get the better of your soul!
For even though you detest those self-righteous squares,
Overcome by their silly worries and stupid cares,
Your own existence turned out all sour as well,
Wretchedness has you captive in its wicked spell!
Can multi fingered leaf or powdery white,
Compare in any way with Godís marvellous light,
His Heavenly Love throbbing warmly in your chest,
An eternity of good your life's constant zest?
Even when you on the edge of consciousness sway,
A joy in life which never dims or goes away,
He will always have compassionate care for you,
No matter what folly you have chosen to do.
Speaking in love whatever trouble you be in,
Even as the cold turkey cruelly hops within,
Your reality once more within you to fight
Because your dealer got busted again last night.
Yes, from your own iniquity and constant strife,
It is really true, Jesus will redeem your life,
Honestly, no matter how damaged or how sore,
Jesus Christ will set your captive life free once more.
Subsequently it is truly yours to decide,
On which side of the great divide you will reside,
As right and wrong The Truth will completely sever,
And loving goodness will be One with you forever.
