Blessed Hands

Blessed hands, don’t be lazy
Do not put off your to do list
Do it.

I see your finger scrolling on the screen
Wasting time watching other people’s energy being put to use
Use yours as well.

I know you want to shake hands with the greats
Some day
This is the way to get there
Put your hands to work.
Little here, little there, each and everyday
Work it.

Blessed hands, don’t be lazy.

I will.

You can only be one thing
So what do you wanna be?
From a child they limit our energies to one thing
To a title, to only one dream

Jack of all trades, master of none
Master one and let go of others
Why can’t I master all that I wanna be?
In my life time, I’ve got numerous 10,000 to give

So I author in different genres
I will produce music and shoot the video
I will lecture and I will photograph
I will be a fitness coach and a priest
All in one lifetime!
I have all these graces in me.

3years now

I think I’ll cry if i wrote you a song
It’ll be sad if i write a poem
But the memories are beautiful, The legacy is burdensome.

I sometimes question why i was given your name,
Because i often feel I’m not living up to expectation
You always spoke grace over me; that I’ll be greater,that I’ll be greater.

This i believe, that all words won’t fall to the dust,
They’ll fulfill the purpose to which they were sent.
I miss you Ba mi, my hero

Man tings

Man,
When you see her, when you see them
What comes to your mind?
When you whistle and pass dirty comments
What’s really going through your mind
What are you capable of behind the curtains
Will you hold yourself in the dark?

Do you think she could be your daughter
Your sister, someone’s potential wife
Someone’s soon to be mother, someone’s mother
Or is she just a piece of meat to you ?
You grab, you hit and clean your mouth without no sign
And life moves on… then you’ve created another monster
Another angry, broken woman.

Good side

Let the young child flourish
She should walk in the dark unafraid
Confident in the light in her
Walk with the gait of a princess.

Allow the young ones dance freely
Unchoked with our judging eyes
Revelling in the grace available
Assured that God only sees their good side.
