He said something to her
It accompanies her and she want to slit her throat
She sees all that was spoken over her
It is true, it reflecting back at her in her mirror
She believes it, she digests it and it lingers like a bad odour.
I wondered why she believed him
She replied, he was her father, her brother, her lover, a stranger
A stranger too?.. she smiled.. yeah a stranger
She’s bold, a lioness, a pillar to other girls but she’s also fragile
What shall I say to this beautiful piece of God’s handy work
That she’s enough, that she’s gold, apple of God’s eyes
How shall I break through the web of lies that she’s believed
How do i take a picture of her that she might look at herself again and smile… Lord teach me how to tell her she’s perfect…like You!!

Let every season begin to work for me
I’m done with the miracles of the wilderness
I want the blessings of the promised land
Let it rain on me in large portions.
Blessings that pursue me till they run me over
Unlimited resources to do more than the needful
To have in abundance till it overflows
As it is in Heaven, so let be with me
I walk in it.

Who made you this beautiful
Who made you this pure
How can you be this faithful
Without a flaw.
Who made you this precious
Something we die for
You playful but serious
You’re perfect to a fault.
What song can I sing for you
I bet it is yet to be written
I drooling all over you, you bet I’m smitten
I will always look out for you, There’s nothing else to look forward to.
I know you’re outthere
I know I’ll find you
Or maybe I have.
May my eyes be wide opened so I don’t let you off my sight
Love and it mystery, may I soon be smitten by your might.

It is funny how God knows my destinations
My hurdles, my failings and my trippings
My fear, my freedoms and my cagings
He also knows who He’ll bring along my way to help me.
This long trip of life doesn’t make sense sometimes
When the pain is unbearable
The learning curves, the unthinkables
But light that shines in the end always make them palatable.
Lord, don’t let me quit before I reach my destination
May I not die before I’m empty of these inner treasures
May I exhaust everything you put in me
And touch all those you send to me.

I call on freedom
I call on freedom
I want some freedom
I won’t stop calling
Till freedom comes
Whatever it form
So long it is from Heaven above
I will do with any freedom’s form
So long it frees me up
And breaks the chains holding me
I’ll call on freedom till freedom comes.

Darkness brag all you can
Take it and can as much you can
But you’re living on borrowed time
A little ray of light will soon emerge
And ruin your vibes.
So while you have the time
Do as much damage, wreck as much havoc
You earned the permission to steal, kill and destroy
Thanks to the first Adam.
But when the light shows up
In it truthest and in it strength
You shall be no more
My past pains crept on me
Like a theif in the night,
I have those I’ve not forgiven
I have quiet resentment against those I should love.
Pieces of truth emerging from my better-not-said past
Better-hidden, I’m not confrontational excuses
Hanging in my subconscious, stuffing my heart with garbage.
But i want freedom, i want to dance like a child
I want to spread my wings like a bird and sing an unpopular song.
I want to…. I have to….
