i am your neighbor

i saw you today, yo
i was on your street
walkin' down the sidewalk
movin' to the beat
i saw you and thought
you was gonna know me
so i watched as i passed you
waited for you to show me
you recognize me
when i walk your turf
whatcha think i'm gonna look like
when i walk dis earth?

you passed me right by
went about your bidness
never looked me in the eye
never saw me as a person
do you honestly think
your threads are dat cool
you so clean, you stink
why you think you all dat?

come on, man
come on
when you gonna see
i walk your earth
in the form of humanity

come on, man
come on
when you gonna wake up
out of your coma
when you gonna shake up
dis ol' world wid my love?

i am your neighbor

"Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me." Matthew 25:44-45

Jesus, help us. We want to see You.
