Perfect

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

Her emotions.
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!!

The Blessings

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.

That Love Thing


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.

Journeys

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.

Freedom (the call)

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.

Son of the morning 

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

Powerless

Done!

Emergency 


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….
