You Can Be (Friday Morning Freewrite)


God says you can be
Man says ain’t nothing in life worth having that you can get for free
Man got us working for it and trying to buy it, but
God says you can be
Where am I going to find something that God put in me?
Why am I trying to buy something that God gave me for free?
Why am I chasing happiness when God says you can be?
Rhetorical questions, Love, Happiness, and Freedom all live in me
A lifetime wasted chasing something God says you can be
You can be
You can be
It’s that simple
Smile, give thanks, project love, shine bright, and be
All that God says you can be…
