Analysis of It's dark when you shine (GRACE)

It’s Dark When You Shine(GRACE)
I refused to allow anyone to hold me to my past God does not why shall I let you? Please I ran out of time a long while ago on my own wasted time so by all means feel free to continue wasting yours trying to hold me hostage from past mistakes made in the infant stages of my life. For myself guilt is absolutely the most least useless emotions of feelings it serves NONE purpose, I believe guilt stems from individuals not wanting you to have, obtained nor prosper more than themselves. In layman’s terms the haters the snakes etc... etc... you must also be aware of that bedazzled manipulation coat it brings character to shame the guilt bring popcorn for say it’s an entertaining show. Unfortunately, if it’s not your 1st rodeo. Manipulation is an aid that damaged people use to make someone feel bad about their position to make theirs look good. I refuse to allow anyone to hold me to my past God does not why shall I let you? Throughout my life trial and tribulations, I've grown to comprehend that there are ages and dissimilar stages in life, love, marriage, and friendship / relationships. Love changes with age so if you're living in your feelings, you are limiting your capacity to endure grace in order to withstand the season throughout the years. If you fall in love with only that season what happens when that season changes? The love explodes the opposite of prevail it rips it tears because I loved you in the spring drinking and flowers, but I do not know how or I do not feel like it in the winter, cold and sober no more vodka I refuse to allow anyone to hold me to my past God does not why shall I let you?
