I stood in line for a job till I was called, but it wasn’t till after I had robbed, so now instead of working, I rob from you again, as you pay to feed, clothe and shelter me. What do I have to give except an apology, which I will never give, because all I was doing was trying to live and support my family and friends. You see when anyone came to my house and was in need, I gave to them whatever I had, even the shirt off my back. So who really is in prison, you or me? Do you think you are living in freedom? Think again. Sit and eat with Jesus and you might just be free. Jesus even has a fort named after him, Fort Jesus. Jesus is my fort, my food, my clothing, what can I give but my love? My life I gave my life I got. Now I live as doors fly open, I catch the sight of what could come from a world that is won. One world turned over plowed under, new seed from the old, seeds for tomorrow.
