Spokenword Sunday – YOLO

Drake yolo

You Only Live Once

How many people here have heard that saying?

Who doesn’t know what the acronym YOLO represents?

You only live once

You only live once

It came to me as I was watching some inspiring Christian poetry

I realised how the devil really works

How he can take a strong warning and distort it into the end of every joke

The excuse for every foolish and selfish act

Who benefits from your yolo-ing?

Don’t you know that there is only one beneficiary to sin, the devil,

He gains another soul in hell

Do we even listen to the things that come out of our mouths?

Christ told us, this is what defiles a man

You only live once

Do you understand what that means,

That means that if the floor were to separate and swallow us all,

That’s it

No clubbing tomorrow,

You won’t have the opportunity to complain about your weight

Or the fact that your new iphone five, causing suicides in China,

Selling at prices enough to feed villages in Africa,

Stopped working

You won’t be able to worry about who is or is not whatsapping you

where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth

And I guess I’m a hypocrite because my phone cost me over £400

How ironic that I should struggle to pay my rent some months and carry the value  in the palm of my hand.

You only live once,

Try weed, try drugs, have sex with him and her too

Do whatever you want to do because you only live once

Tattoo only God can judge me

Just to show how daring and creative you can be

But only God can judge you and don’t worry he will

You’ll have the opportunity to explain to him why you felt so strongly about judgement that you needed to permanently mark it on the walls of his temple

Cause our body is his temple

YOLO

We don’t even think about what those four letters mean

If you’re given the grace to understand then please understand

Yes its true this body only survives one life time, but your spirit is eternal

It would have been better for some if they hadn’t been born because by being born you’ve enter a contract forever

You’ll always be in existence

I’m not saying yolo-ing is wrong, I yolo often

Saying things I don’t want to say because of human fear, that I know I have to say because of God because I’ll only live on this earth once

I won’t have the opportunity to come back and do things the right way having learned of hell

The guy you spent half of your teenage years chasing, the image you almost killed yourself for,

They won’t matter once death comes

Is it me or does it seem sensible to utilize this life on earth, that we only have to live once, to do things that will save us from burning for eternity

In fact I am mostly talking to myself here

Because I know I’ve ended a stupid decision with the word YOLO!

Do you know how many people have taken some drug just once and died, they know the true meaning of YOLO

Said the wrong thing and been in the wrong place at the wrong time and had life snatched away from them

You Only Live Once
