hello fear.

Kirk Franklin's album is amazing, very inspirational and heartfelt like always. I've been listening to it ever since I downloaded it. lol but the 2nd track is him saying this poem. Its called the story of fear.

I can't sing but I'm gonna work hard for you to like me
Didn't dream 'cuz if I fail then I might be
What they said I was could I ever say I did it
Tell yay now that I'm second to admit it
Insecure I can't understand the application
If I applied myself I guess there'd be no situation
But who teaches who when everyday's a substitute
I tried to plant love but it never took root
My soul's got weeds and the roots are too deep
The roots don't sail 'cuz the roots are too deep
ADDC my roots too deep
A kid too afraid to close his eyes and sleep
Can't you hear me studder everytime I speak
Fear said hello when she left me weak
Love me and left me with abandonment issues
Pains a secret but it illuminates in you then it creates a menu
But sin on your plate you don't know until later how much ever you ate
Now I'm watching my weight
Will this album be my best one?
But if it's not y'all on to the next one
So hello fear it's about time we speak
It may take a while cause our roots run deep
