Free verse

Trapped in a mind of sin,

Got me asking how Lord can I win,

How can I get past me,

And look for the way you want me to be,

I just don’t understand how,

And at times I swear it’s got me down,

But you tell me lift that head up,

Because you got me; you never get fed up,

But the devil out here trying to get me with the set-up,

And he just waiting like a voice box; cause you know I’m going to hiccup,

But you are there to help me hold my breath,

You tell me; you got me in the life after death,

But these burdens I swear they way down on my chest,

I need more strength to study this so I can pass the test,

I want that grade; I need that A,

I need your help; I need your Grace,

So here I am; Here I pray,

Hoping here in my heart; you will stay,

So forgive me for my past transgressions,

I know this seems like an obsession,

Or maybe it seems like just another session,

But in truth this is my faults my confession,

I am weak without you,

I will break without you,

My future is bleak without you,

I can’t get on that winning streak without you,

So here I am on the platform,

And this voice box is getting a little warm,

I’m ready to try and scream your name,

I don’t seek riches, glory in life, or even fame,

All I want is the truth of your words,

Anything else seems to much, too absurd,

So in a since I digress,

This is my passion of Christ address,

So take me below that water and let your blood run through my veins,

Because I want the best, I am tired of the same.


It Found Me

I can feel the love around me,

In fact it’s quite astounding,

It’s a rhythm of the heart Pounding,

Full of close ties it’s bound me,

A flood of happiness drowns me,

Wings of trust won’t let’em ground me,

But friends till the end surround me,

Not to serious we out here clowning,

But a community of love call it towning,

The fact of the matter is its truly resounding,

If falling it is in the allowing,

Then like basketball we will be rebounding,

Got to love the love cause its louding,

Turning it up so join the crowding,

And accept it smiling and proudly,

Because it’s not in the finding but in the knowing it found me.

Recipe: Grilled Cheesy Barbecue Chicken

Recipe: Grilled Cheesy Barbecue Chicken


4 slices of bacon
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Onion powder
Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama)
1 cup each cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup of homemade or commercial barbecue sauce
1/2 cup of chopped tomato
1 green onion, sliced


Preheat broiler, or heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray; set aside. Cook bacon until cooked, but not too crisp; set aside. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise so that you have 8 flat pieces of chicken. Season both sides with the salt, pepper, onion powder and Cajun seasoning. Grill or pan sear chicken just until browned on both sides and transfer to the baking pan.

Coat each chicken breast with about 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce. Cut cooked bacon strips in half and place one half onto each piece of chicken. Mix together the cheeses, and evenly divide among each piece of chicken. Place into a preheated 350 degree F oven, or under the broiler, just long enough until juices run clear, chicken is cooked through, and the cheese is melted. Remove, garnish with chopped tomato and sliced green onion, and serve immediately with a side salad, potatoes, or a vegetable and bread.

Note: These make great sandwiches. Remember, these are very thin chicken cutlets that will not take long to cook. Take care not to overcook or you will not be happy with the results. I used a thick cut applewood bacon.

Ok not healthy But good lol Every once and a while you got to treat yourself bad and good at the same time lol
