Jake J-Thrill Bennett: I am a poet, of sorts. I put my words to music, and some people call it rap. But my motives are a little different than everyone else that raps. Christ is the reason for everything in life, so I attempt to glorify Him through what I do.
The following is a poem inspired by the concept behind my “EP” that was released a few months ago. I hope you enjoy it, and feel free to visit the link at the bottom and check “The freEP” out. Many thanks, and much Love.
Ace of Grace
Let’s say you’re playing cards,
And you’re stacked against the odds.
7-2 off suit?
That never matters to you.
You just cant swallow your pride,
It keeps growing and growing inside.
You have a losing hand,
And you even understand!
The stakes go up and up,
But no one buys your bluff.
Your back’s against the wall,
And soon they’ll begin to fall.
Now let’s say the cards, are what you’re living.
You keep pushin, but nothin’s giving.
You won’t admit that you need help,
That you’re headin for Hell.
The walls, they need to fall.
Only then, can you stand tall.
But your strength isn’t enough,
See, it must come from above.
Your hearts a diamond in the rough,
He’s got the spade to dig it up.
The club doors are open,
He’s waiting there, hopin’.
You gotta go all in,
Just give it up to Him.
The chips are stacked, the stakes have raised
You don’t need a poker face, you can have the Ace of Grace.
