“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3)
David was my temple,
and at his altar,
for he was neither spirit nor stone,
but warm flesh,
and a heart deceitful above all things.
In His Name,
much evil had been done.
In the name of love,
such had been done with me.
Twas when I became a Saint,
I learned that the glory of God
for He knew all there was to know.
1999 was the summer of love,
the spring of a new life,
the autumn of my girlhood,
and the winter of my childhood.
I was harvested from the sand
by God, to become a star,
only to fall from Heaven once more.
