PAIN - Restoration

Updated on November 9, 2014

Maurice Bishop, a powerful, spoken word Poet currently serving in the United States Army. Published Author & Motivational Speaker.

I was chilling outside with my friends and my best friend Shy.

Playing cards, smoking weed trying to get high.

And before my eyes I saw a car driving by,

Guns aiming at me but the bullets flew hitting Shy.

Bullets in her chest and sides.

After three minutes she died.

Blood everywhere, crowd everywhere as I shout WHY??.

I felt like a father watching his only child being burned alive.

And my tears so thick my eyes bleed when I cried.

Sometimes I get flashbacks from when her body was spark til her body being chalked,

Wondering if it's my fault.

I'm so drunk in my sorrow I can barely talk.

And the pain so heavy if you ever set foot in my shoes you wouldn't be able to walk.

Eyes filled with fury because I know she's in a casket.

Blood boil to steam til my skin turn into ashes.

Pain so excruciating it's like I'm swimming in a pool of acid.

Lord help because my spirit is shattered and pieces of me lying in the dark.

And the pain is so deep that if you took an x-ray of my chest you'll see the word PAIN engraved in my heart.

I cried and I cried hoping God hearing this.

Because I feel like my soul being lynched with thorns in the crowns of my weariness.

Every time I dream of her I tried to grab hold of her soul hoping to escape reality.

But reality pulls me out of the dream and pain shackles me.

I can't even think straight when I'm trapped in the pit of memory lane.

It's like I'm in a hot desert crying for rain.

Then I heard a voice of a man, "You Know Nothing Of Pain!

I carried the world's pain on my back while they curse my name.

I was kicked on and stripped, strapped with chains.

I was whipped on so much that the meat of my back started to hang.

My back is a mass of torn tissues, it's so insane.

Thorns pierce in my skull as the blood drips from my mane.

You Know Nothing Of Pain!

Til you feel nails getting hammered in your hands and feet.

Body painfully shaking, you're clenching your teeth.

Cramping in the muscles so there's no relief.

Every time I gasp for air the pain increase.

And being hung naked and humiliated as my mother weeps.

And when I'm being hung like an ornament.

I'm pulling my body upward to avoid the stretching torment.

You Know Nothing Of Pain!//

Til the people you love becomes your worst enemy.

All the great miracles I've done for them, it's like they don't even remember me.

I died so they might repent and accept me and get their names in the heavenly.

I love them so much but they all forgot me.

And the love I have for them is more deeper than taking the heart out my chest and letting it hug their bodies.

I know your dark clouds soaring and your tears pouring, I heard you mourning.

But weeping may endure for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning.

You may feel like you can't make it because your friend buried.

But I knew you before you was born, I wouldn't give you burdens you couldn't carry.

In the mist of the madness and sadness I'll give you oil of gladness.

Beauty for ashes.

So don't be afraid and dismayed.

And he hugged me and robed me in the garment of praise.

He showed me the holes in his hands and feet as the tears began to flow.

He touched me and made me whole.

Took away my pain and resurrect my soul.

And I'm letting you all know that God is real,

And no matter what kind of pain you have, by his stripes we are healed//
