GOAL

SEE, I HAVE A GOAL LORD, SIR
THAT IN THIS LIFE TO GROW OLDER
LOOK BACK AND PROCLAIM I WAS GOD'S SOLDIER
TO ARRIVE AND ENTER HEAVEN MUCH MORE BOLDER.
ALONG THE WAY THOUGH SATAN WANTS TO PLAY
 I'LL ADMIT IT, I CONCEDED, “WHAT TIME? OH TODAY”
SATAN KNEW I LIKED GAMES HE SAID “RIGHT THIS WAY”
HIDE AND SEEK WAS SO UNIQUE, AND FUN, I SAID “OK”.

IT DIDN'T TAKE THAT LONG, SAY A COUPLE OF WEEKS
MORE PEOPLE JOINED, THEN IT BECAME HIDE AND SEEKS
THIS BECAME EASIER THAN TACKLE FOOTBALL IN CLEATS
SORRY SIR, GOAL ON HOLD, I THOUGHT EVERYONE CHEATS.
FAMILY BEGAN TO NOTICE, MOST FRIENDS WERE THUGS
I LOST JOBS, AND HOPE, ALL DUE TO MYSELF AND DRUGS
MONEY CAME FROM CUTTING LAWNS, TREES, SHRUBS
I BECAME ABSENT FROM FAMILY, YOU SIR, AND ANY HUGS.

MY NEWEST GOAL WAS TO TRY MY BEST TO MAINTAIN
PRESSURE CAME UPON ME TO ACHIEVE EVEN THROUGH PAIN
THOUGH THE MORE I TACKLED LIFE I COULD SEE NO GAIN 
I HAD INVITED THE STORM BUT IT HADN'T INCLUDED RAIN.
MY PATH SOON BECAME A CIRCLE, A REVOLVING DOOR
PATIENCE, LAUGHTER, AND LOVE COULDN'T STAY ANYMORE
 RELATIONSHIPS FOLDED, ONE DAY I REACHED JESUS' STORE
HE GAVE ME A HUG, SAYING “I'LL NEVER KEEP SCORE.

I'M ALWAYS WITH YOU, WONDERED WHEN I'D BE NEEDED
I ALWAYS SAID SATAN'S WAY WOULD SOON BE DEPLETED
AND YOU KNOW THE BIBLE BUT DID YOU REALLY READ IT
IT LETS YOU KNOW THAT SOMETIMES OUR WALK IS IMPEDED.
SO, PICK WHAT YOU WANT, AND REPLENISH ALL YOU NEED
INCLUDING A HOLY CUP TO DRINK ALL THAT I BLEED".
