Last night from standing outside, i saw your sky and i figured right then they had told me a lie. Had i taken time to see the things you made i'd have known they weren't calling a spade a spade. I wonder God if you'll take my hand. Somehow i feel that u'd understand. Funny i had to come to this hellish place before i had time to see your face. Well i guess there isn't much more to say but I'm sure glad God i met you today. Like the zero hour will soon be here but I'm not afraid since i know you are near . The signal... well...God I'll have to go. i like you lots i want you to know. Looks like this will be a horrible fight who knows, i may come to your house tonight. Though i wasn't friendly to you before i wonder God if U'll wait at your door. Look...I'm crying... i'm shedding tears i'll have to go now God, goodbye...., since i met you, I'm not afraid to die . #LEADERSHIP.
