Have I not walked too far for my freshly strength? Labored on slavely to your seemingly endless gain As you watch it drain my pot of salt each day Emptying me of my identity, weakening my strides Bringing me to my knees and down to your arms That keep painting a thick darkness in my eyes Blinding them from your scared deceitful face As you hit me with more loads of shameful fear So I shall never raise to the truth in your eyes And realize how my victory I attained long against you how I am free; a free man and a prince to that in my father’s house by whom my freedom I attain. how foolish your ways are that you enslave a prince and think he shall never to take a knife to your neck as princes were never made to stand among dirt I shall stand strong before these giants of walls And break straight through their concrete mirage That has for long fed on my hope of freedom To one day set my heavy heart and soul free. I will run, I shall run on madly to his feet Chasing on that silent voice I hear in my ears That has always been there calling and whispering Waiting for me to open on to its words of light So it can polish my stained heart clear of darkness For he alone can give me my mirrorily heart.

Come lets build the walls of our kingdom

For with only you i can raise them

And then they shall forever stand strong

Come sing to my ears endless Sing words of love and promise Let them hear of your voice A rhythmical breeze to my life As it forever echoes sweetness Come lay close by my side Let my face feel of your breath As a shiver runs through my skin So I feel you here and now A moment that shall be forever Come stand with me here Be my rock, my shoulder to lean Hold my hand so tight and close Give me of your great strength And may this last forever Come kiss my lips tonight And let my whole be lost in it Drawing through my veins To reach the deepest of my soul Awakening it forever to love Come lets share this moment As the world opens up to me To see it as it is so colourful And a spectacle to imagination That forever my mind shall have Come to church with me today Close your eyes; let me lead you As we share this dream together Listen to my words of promise Then say yes, yes forever I do.

Who do we be among, these on earth?

Do we be those that lead along the path?

falling to open ground and so vulnerable, 

made prey of the hungry birds in the airs,

that seed which never lasts at least a day

as birds pick it up as it falls to ground.

 

 

Do we be those that lead to rocky grounds?

Those that sprout out quickly from the soils,

so beautiful from the first glance of them

though truthfully with not deep roots

as the soils are shallow and not enough

that they are dried to the heat of the sun.

 

Do we be those that lead to thorny bushes?

That grow blindly to what’s before them,

wishing to be taller than those above them

and unknowingly, choked by the thorns,

thorns, the bushes they blindly walked to

an early end that they never thought of;

 

Or do we be those that lead to fertile soils

that rise strong and tall from the ground;

soils of plenty and no thorny bushes grow.

Soils a seed grows and produces grain

hundreds of thousands of good grain

for seasons of now and tomorrow.

 

Which of these seeds have we become?

(So listen then if you have ears.)

Matthew 13:18-23

Tell me child of what you have seen

share with me this that haunts you

Take me where your chains dwell

Open my eyes to your dark reality

Speak to me, release that fire inside

So it may not devour you anymore

Confide in me and today shall be new

Hold my hand, let me walk on for you

 place your feet right after mine

And let me walk through with you

To a place of freedom and living

A land prepared to receive the lost

Lost at heart, soul and in their walks

As i promise to stand by you child.

Should I say or not; tell me, Tell me now what am to say? Acquaint my heart with your desires and my blood shall flow of them. Read my breath and let this stay. Smile and give me my daily dream, let it come to life before my eyes with butterflies, stars floating round clouds kissing down to the earth. Keep me in my dream and let this stay. Draw me this moment unending and let it rest by my heart forever. Will me this glow that you bare crow it blandly to my whole being. Give me you, us and let this stay. Save me and keep me close to you bestow my life with a purpose to be and set me out to a new beginning where I shall have you in my arms say yes and let this, right here stay.

Shall I possess the will to stand through

and speak audaciously to the hungry storms

that feed on our susceptible strides in life?

Shall my tongue never agree to their language;

A language to proclaim goats among sheep,

Where acceptance will give audience to all?

In point to have culture and faith bewildered?

As it would have fallen to the scents of deceit

 

Shall not my house choose to fall by truth

than live to slave their souls to pleasures,

blindness and death to self actualization;

that only which by truth one can achieve.

Shall our strive glow bright to the sight of many

and awaken their inner crave for all fullness.

Fullness of being and knowing that it’s finished

and our tomorrow shall be a new day.

 

Shall I not stand for him one more day

with my eyes and soul raised up to his holiness

where my peace, life and all hope comes from?

For today I stood strong with in wild storms

with all faith I smiled and declared myself free

 said NO, no I shall not accept compromise

as I knew only by walking in truth would I gain victory

A Truth that he said will set me free.

They say life is our decisions effect

that which happens by our choices

coming by as good or bad for us

but that we stand with no matter

as we own them; so their effect

so today i will make one of mine

that I shall stand with no matter

Today I choose to tell you my mind’s;

Thoughts,

Dreams,

my heartbeat,

Breathe,

flow of my blood;

tell you of my desire.

Today I make this decision, I choose this life,

today I choose you and you alone

to share with the experiences of life,

you to rise above or even fall with;

you to become or remain here with.

Tell me what to say and that I will

turn my face and there I will look

guide my feet and that path I’ll walk

for am here by choice and I shall stay

as it’s my decision and my choice of life.

Say it, yes say I messed up

And I will stand to be judged.

Tell me of my fate in this

So my heart can try taking it in

As I know my actions stand

What I did is seeded in our lives

A betrayal of what you believe

Of what I swore to keep pure

I let evil creep within our house

Of what I swore to keep pure

 

And it is now part of what I am.

Come and please talk to me today

Let me not walk away like this

As my heart truly wants to stay

Though what I did is deplorable

For you alone I would travel this earth

I still speak these same words at heart

words I said to you before masses

that you are my only princess

and for you I shall walk the earth

so that same smile I see stays forever

They say you know victory and have seen it all;

claim you have walked lands and galaxies

fought in the fiercest of battles, wars and won

against the fresh and against the spiritual forces,

that you have commanded the greatest of armies;

not only armies but even the swords they used,

lands that they fought on and their enemies;

You commanded rains to destroy all the earth

but spare an ark where your people made shelter,

you held them up for forty days and forty nights;

above a flooded earth till you made dry land.

Upon Sodom you commanded a storm of fire

a city that spoke and lived against your will

and all life there was burnt down to dust.

You made way for your Israelite children

commanding the Red Sea to split and make way.

Walls of Jericho you sent down crumbling,

walls thought so strong; unbreakable they said

but it still came down at the sound of your voice

and victory then it was for the army of Israel.

You commanded the lions at Daniel’s cry to you,

kept Jonah in the belly of a whale for three days

and Goliath ‘a great warrior’ you easily defeated;

with a young shepherd of faith and a tiny stone,

he fell to the ground and never again got up.

At your command a child by a virgin was born;

one that lived among us but still was greater,

he walked on water, healed the sick and raised the dead.

It was your son, your only son Christ

by whose death on the cross my life I got back.

Through whom my mountains crumbled.

A promise you made before and still hold.

I remember that day

my brain froze of thought

a cold swept my skin,

my blood boiled within

as my eyes wetted my face

i wanted to say it all,

free my soul of its chains,

let it go, explore the world,

spread my wings out wide

take that step to its life beauty,

play its song to your ears,

write out a new chapter

a chapter of tomorrow

ask you for your hand

and lead you forth.

I remember that day,

the day you said I DO

With mind ready to become with you

Listen, the trumpets call hear them sound intelligibly, sounding from the heavens calling out to all that hear the time has come, it is now, time we fought our battles chose where we are to belong for the end of all is near now. Listen to them sound so loud crying out to us of no faith, that have not found the way we that decide to close our eyes, shut our ears to the truth held by what this earth has a worthless humps of dust we cry for our ignorance and a disease of foolish pride.

Take me from all these arms stretched out

Call out to my name, from those at mind

let your lips croon to my ears acceptance

lift my heart with in to a feel of happiness

Say it’s my house where you will lay at dusk

With your head pressed upon my chest

To awake me in dawn with your wonder smile 

And the world shall today open wide for you.

 

Save me today, let me not leave here alone

Open my mind to a fairly land, make me new

Let me walk above all earth’s greatness

And for that moment it shall all be mine

My feet’s’ path shall be any man’s desire

My stand a model for all victory accounts

With you here, it will come still and silent

For history shall only come to speak of us

 

Today, this day is different and so bright

Saw how the skies opened up to the morning

The winds brushed by against the trees

With all swaying rhythmically side to side

Like everything was to a sound of a love song

God must have been listening in last night

That it all comes to now, this moment, you here

truly today is that day I get my feel of happiness.

Take me with you; leave me not

See my mind is ready I decided

Am ready yes am sure it time

This is what I want, I need it

Lets run away together forever

Lets wonder the worlds together

My answer is yes; yes am ready.

 

Am told sunsets are all beautiful

And they all always come at day end

But was never told the eye only loves one

My eye saw this one with it I melted

Stood still to the beauty of its presence

It was different, it was not beautiful

It was that which beauty itself is

I won’t let go of this yes am now ready

 

You asked whether my lips speak for me

Whether I hear the words in my song

If the ink flows straight from my heart

And if my soul has really willed to this

You ask if am ready to walk this road

my answer is yes my lips speak for me

yes I hear and have listened to my song

yes my heart authors this ink that flows

yes am ready now and yes will marry you.

In his room closed from the world

he sits eyes locked to a magazine

a prison that has grown around him

so strong he knows not how to leave.

He; little at sight yet heavy in mind

Denied his innocence, a right he lost

to a burdening sick habbit

that’s drained the light from his eyes

dragging him to a darkness of guilt

He is alone and will be tomorrow

For where he wonders no one walks;

broken, scared and confused he waits

in need of a friend, voice and a hope

and there HE speaks, so sweet

‘It’s alright my child am already there.’

 

Before the toilet mirror she stands

tears flowing down her young fair face

with her body coated in an earthquake

as her eyes open to her folded fist;

scared the test will read true her fears

fears she is to become a mother.,

he wants nothing to do with her now

and her guardian calls it the last stroll

 to the streets alone she has turned,

rejected, cast out and named unworthy;

Lost to the eyes of all those around her

tries to speak but all ears are shut to her

the world so crowded but she stands alone,

she stands between her past and tomorrow

broken, scared and confused she waits

in need of a friend, voice and a hope

and there HE speaks, so sweet

‘It’s alright my child am already there.’

 

By the fire place far apart in thought

they sit unsure of when it got to this,

as she still hears his words at the altar,

speaking of how the heavens to him she was

a love that was, that was meant to stay.

He too mystified by how it all changed

for he loved her and his words he meant

as she lit up his whole being

but he knows not how it all vanished

as little with time those heavens closed;

the spark she held in her eyes melted out

and there it was lost, strangers they became

broken, scared and confused they wait

in need of a friend, voice and a hope

and there HE speaks, so sweet

‘It’s alright my children am already there.’

 

How did I get to become my today?

What did I do wrong and when did I fall?

Questions rain in like swarms of bees

eating at the last of my flesh I have left

throwing me deeper into a lonely hiding

afraid of what I have lived become

and what they that see me will think

i run, hide I become a stranger to myself.

Lost from what I believed and knew as good

engraved to my face a tattoo of failure

as I can never become what I was taught

a shame, disgrace, humiliation to my family

that no one would even speak of me now

in need of a friend, voice and a hope

and there HE speaks, so sweet

I hear the LORD and he is so close.

I hear him speak to my ear saying to me

‘It’s alright my child am already there

And I hear you.’

Flee and look not back to your past

Shake off all that hold you still

run, run that race past all pride and shame

and you will be saved from your own

that which pursues you and all that’s you

 

Run and look not back to your past

as that coming to you is a burning darkness

call, call on to thee that’s your refuge

and pray that you shall hear him speak

for its his word that will guide you home

 

Call and look not back to your past

let thee that hears all come to you

listen, listen and you shall hear his voice

as he always has he’ll come to your rescue

and in him Christ Jesus you shall be new.

Acquaint my heart with your desires

Read my breath and let this stay.

with butterflies, stars floating round

clouds kissing down to the earth.

Keep me in my dream and let this stay.

 

Draw me this moment unending

and let it rest by my heart forever.

Will me this glow that you bare

crow it blandly to my whole being.

Give me you, us and let this stay.

 

Save me and keep me close to you

bestow my life with a purpose to be

and set me out to a new beginning

where I shall have you in my arms

say yes and let this, right here stay.

Made by and for greater have i been

as am not like all but only he that knows me.

Am to walk floors of gold and diamond,

eat of the finest foods there ever to be

with a life spelt of beautiful abundance

for I is his son he that is called king.

 

I am a prince in my father’s house,

this I have been told and I know.

I walk surrounded by fleets of angels

some laid down for my feet to sit

while others stand by for I may speak;

I a son of the one who is forever

 

You ask then why I cry today; if I be a king’s son,

why my feet are torn to many thorns

and my lips eat of want is left on your plate?

Would be it that my father wants me not

and my prince-ship now a dream I have to live

am I forgotten to the darkness of this earth?

 

Fear not for me and my prince-ship crown

as my father rules greater than to the eye

Am from lands above this earth we walk,

with a life beyond flesh and all its pleasures.

By grace I will walk through my life’s purpose

then my crown shall await me in my father’s hands.

I have been told patience yields roses

That thee who wait on faithfully achieve

I have been told a story of a great man

A man that walked the earth like all

As at birth he knew not his life’s purpose

Like we he lived to become what he dreamt

And only great he dreamt to become

life with all its fullness is what he saw,

His heart was set to victory at the end

He dreamt, believed and waited on

for he knew his day would come

that moment would present its self

and he would take it with open arms

cause he had a strong faith, he had Christ

Speak to me my dear love

shut me not from your heart;

let your eyes keep me at sight.

Tell me of what you desire

and I will walk this whole earth,

move the world and universe;

till the day you receive your wish

for all I can do, all is possible

as all I promised if you asked;

if you let me come close to you

as my only desire has always---

forever will be your happiness,

joy and life in all its fullness for you;

so let me in today and don’t look back.

I had walked no further than home

so call me no fool as my mother cooked best

and father knew all secrets of the earth

what I had seen was perfect and heavenly

home is where I wanted to be tomorrow.

 

Winds blew and seasons came and past

and on my feet I could stand and walk well

with my mind, think of thinking beyond home

beyond this hill ‘obutahurira’ that stood before us

a hunger that grew greater than my ears

so strong a day came; I ascended there.

shutting out my father’s words against it

and there at the top my eyes saw the world

a beauty, magnificence; I saw paradise.

my father was wrong and he knew little.

this, here, now was what life was

I ate, saw all and lived it again and again

but within this splendor lay a darkness

a ravenous evil and cunning wave

this beauty was haunted by its very makers

murder, disease and deceit dwelled in it  

nourished by those that worshiped it

there I awoke to my father’s words

and opened my mind back to his wisdom

‘obutahurira’ only leads to destruction.

 

 

I have walked to the furthest of lands

tasted the said to be best dishes of all

and spoken to those called the wisest

but none spoke and cooked with that love

a love, warmth that dwelled in my home 

home is where my heart was molded

and there I shall find my tomorrow.

On my knees I am today

to pray, talk to my father

call to his righteous name,

his healing hand, his blood

blood that washes clean.

I am confessing my sins

thanking him for what i have

bringing my fears to him

for i know that he listens

as he promised he would.

 

Today i run the plains of this land

shouting, calling out to him

he shall hear me and come down

he will dry my tear-filled eyes

heal e  of my own sicknesses

comfort me in my lonely walks.

Father, mother; I shall come home

as his told me the war is won

and he has his angels above our lands 

that will light up our land with blessings

i have the faith and i believe

And that’s all I need, for its enough

There is a walk ahead

i have been told about it

it’s to raise the silent voices

make the unheard heard

heal the wounded souls.

 

There is a walk ahead

i have been told about it

it’s to unite all skins together

make the world colourless

heal the wounded souls.

 

There is a walk ahead

i have been told about it

it’s to end the many wars

make peace talks the solution

heal the wounded souls.

 

There is a walk ahead

i have been told about it

it’s to reach to all nations

make Christ’s word heard

heal the wounded souls.

My work is not just poetry

nor is poetry the words on paper

for its more and much wider

a chapter of a life uncovered

a shout of an unheard voice within

speaking aloud to all souls

crying out so they may hear

through the waters to plains

of a gladness in news it carries

echoing to the longest of caves

heard to ears said to be deaf

miraculous happenings and works

that my eyes have come see

and sweetness of word I’ve read

as it says on earth here he came

lived among we, that persecute him

but with his life I was reborn

he shade his blood for my sake

and through him I am forgiven

today I sing he’s alive forever

for death too he defeated

                                                                      am so glad he saves me.

I have been told that am beautiful;

he met me on my way to the river,

that i am a princess in a far land

a royalty of some great kingdom,

that i have a seat in a big palace

next to the king’s am to be seated,

this king whom i, me, calls father.

That i have a bedroom of my own

or, you may call them chambers,

my own carriage of white horses,

horses, beauty eyes haven’t seen.

 

He told me so, that i am royalty,

that am not like those around me

as i have what none has received

and seen power not thought to be.

 A power of love, forgiveness, peace,

one that can be received from one,

my father, the king of the kingdom,

ruler of all that was, is or will be, 

the beginning and the end of all life,

he gives life and he receives it back..

 

I have accepted my role in this life

and this gave me the status i have.

my acceptance to let him lead me

guide me through this long trail

has yielded me royalty, abundance

and i seek not anything more now,

as i belong to the highest of class

now that i am a daughter of Christ.

Give me a life like his lord

Let me be known a thief now

Than after here is all done

Have stones thrown at me today

Not tomorrow when you come

Lord give me his life please

 

Give me days of tears now

So joy I shall get after then

Troubles come crumbling today

And awake victorious day next

As it awaits me just ahead

 

Lord give me that moment

A time to see your holiness

See your blood flow for my sake

To cleanse me clean for home

A chance to say the same words

‘Remember me lord, when you’re home’

Now that we are to rebuild these walls

that crumbled at the hands of dark roars

stand guard for the thief is still near

do not close your eyes even at night

for that is when he works to his best

keep your eyes from his shinny illusions

and ears from his slanderous voice

relax not for he wants it back down

as its presence weakens his influence

the stronger and taller it becomes

he loses more of how to get to you.

 

Stand brother and strengthen your wall

carefully place each brick at its spot

for anywhere else your is weak

and it shall easily fall again to him

dress yourself the helmet of salvation,

and hold that sword of the spirit

so his works shall not reach you

plant holy torches around your walls

so when night time of life knocks

the holy flames light your wall bright

to keep his cunning thought out.

 

Come let’s build our faith back

reaffirmed our faith in him

decide today to rise back to your purpose

walking the path designed for your feet

let not evil even tell you of shorter ones

for only LORD knows your destination

as its he that designs all your walks

walk on now and fear not what’s ahead

your author and guide loves you 

and can never abandon his creation

hold on to his word that he gives you

for that shall lead you home.

The peace in my soul---,

voice heard from inside,

a wave of fresh soft winds,

presence of his great hand

endless blessings flow in

i found it that answer

 it answers all there has been

and those there is to be,

it now lives in my heart,

opens my lips with its word,

feeds my ears the good news

my eyes, miraculous sights

there is a power in this, in me

a power meant for all to feel

a life worth to live, to have

receive, that’s a free cost life

a life only found in him alone

Christ Jesus the Messiah

Stay awake on this day oh my soul

and let not sleep overwhelm your eyes.

Watch on to what’s to come your way,

as these days and hours are dark

and evil walks beyond its confines,

slily to find its way into our wombs,

into that inner self, our tick of life

where it wishes to sow all its seed,

seed meant to work us to our shame

leaving us broken and lost to our way.

 

Pray hard on this day oh my soul

and let our Lord come take the wheel,

surrender to him the burden you weigh

as you alone are weak to carry it,

take off the coat of pride you wear,

that mask of lies on your face

and be his child again that he knew.

Let your broken heart rest in his presence,

as only there it shall find full peace,

for its he that authored all that is.

In what voice shall i sing of your mercies?

So those that listen can understand

Who it is that i sing these praises to

what clothes am i to wear my king,

as am to stand at your alter today

to speak of a grace that’s kept me

tell of this great counsellor i met

that unburdened me of my sorrows

and gave me a new purpose to live;

Teach me words to say, how to speak

for i know not how to describe you;

who you are, words can’t explain,

greater than greatness and being

author of life giver of breath

all these are no fit for who you are.

You as said are alpha and omega

what was and will become the almighty

the definition of love and glory

you are the rock that breaks death

waters that flow of healing and hope

the flames which light so bright

within the hearts of your followers

those flames that scatter darkness

burn all impunities of the soul

and make man a new being in you

dressed in your full armour; the belt of truth

the breastplate of righteousness,

shield of faith to stop flaming evil arrows,

helmet of salvation, sword of the Spirit,

which is your holy word wrote for to us all

dressed to wrestle the schemes of the devil

For a struggle not against flesh and blood,

but against the rulers, against the powers,

against the world rulers of this darkness,

against spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.

and victory shall be ours in the end

thanks be to you who gives us the victory

through our Lord Jesus Christ

                                                 AMEN

Will thy father forgive my sin where I begin this walk?

Where, without much thought I hunger for satisfaction

with an endless craving that‘s drowned me to deep waters

enslaved me to the many desires of my own flesh

beauties of this earth, from which only sorrows i get

tearing me down, to addictions to what my eyes see

weakening my passionate inner self, my once joyful soul

this, a thirst that has drained my throat dry to cracks

that i see no better than what is put on this silver plate

with a thought that all on it is silvery like the plate.

Blinded from the body that he fed to his disciples

denying myself the fill of a satisfaction from his table.

so unworthy i have become in this very short time

and yes it’s true, am not worthy to think of his name

for i have sinned and now sin is all my heart beats to,

worked so hard to distance myself from his cross

in which i have succeeded as for today i am lost

lost to the darkness of guilt, my body is chained 

to the walks that it led though it always saw his path

ignoring that tiny voice that would have saved me

that call that tried to warn me of those walks I led

Now;

listen as i cry, listen to how heavy my heart weighs

look at all these chains that have crippled my legs

that though he says he’s close by its hard to reach him

to break out of these grips, these chains that i created  

to stand and take that only one little tiny first step

which, as he says is all that i have to do,

one decision, that would save me from all my sin

pull me out of this cloud of rot and prison of chains  

and give me a second chance, open for a new chapter

with a new beginning, story and a new me.

The race is on, and it’s hard.

a run from what we’ve become,

a darkness that’s crept onto us

eaten the our moral bone dry, 

stripped it of its wonder innocence

slammed with guilt and rejection.

 

the race to salvation is here,

a run to tranquility, oneness,

blessings wait to be embraced

as winds of festivity flow ahead;

waves of a better life sweep in,

life of mutual trust and respect.

 

the race to salvation, yes it is,

a run of jubilee, freedom, victory

it’s not about who runs best

but in whom you decide to run

if let him set the pace for you

and follow the tracks he’s laid

Upon thee my faith I proclaim

he in whom there was and is

alpha and omega he is called

writer of time; yesterday, today and next

the giver of all to my dear soul

here now my whole i pour onto you

if be lost, it to be in your embrace

that it may rise through your goodness.

 

Today i shall only worship thy name

only to you my king I shall bow

like angels high above in the heavens

singing the words of worship

holy holy holy you are Lord

savior and protector of my soul

the father of love and all about it

my fountain purity against all sin

 

Listen; listen to my song of redemption

open your ears to this new voice

a good news of his saving grace

he above the highest there to ever be

greater than any other greatness

hear him cry out at Calvary

break us free of our darkness

for his shed-blood we forgiven live

Today I saw two sons being born

both with that loud wail they came

innocently eager to meet their destines

to walk that earth and be somebody,

rewrite the thought about their land

they shared a brightness in their eyes.

 

Today I saw two youthful boys pass by

one with a bag going on to school

running fast to meet his tomorrow,

he held that same brightness in him.

The other with a bunch of firewood

too scared to even hold his head up high,

scared to think, what tomorrow is to be?

 

Today two men woke up in the morning

one was rushing; he’s to be sworn in today,

sworn in as one of the ministers of state

the other rushed to sit by the roadside,

at least today the minister will see him

maybe, today he will and give him a coin.

 

Today I saw those two sons of Africa

that were born to be the same, a blessing

but only one got the chance to become

one lived safe and became then, educated

he alone received his right in life.

Am part of this great plant

the stem feeds me, holds me,

holds me up high to the sun

lets me have the best of being.

It gives me life, a life I have

 

Am a branch on this plant

i hold the fruit of this plant

my fruit is as good as I am

as sweet as I look and stand

the fruit is my value of being

 

Am a branch of a vine plant

a vine named Christ Jesus

that stands in a huge garden

a garden planted by my God

i am a branch of the true vine.

He is---,

the breath you take in

that smile on your face

the warmth within you

he is you at your best.

 

He is---,

the calm oceans and seas

those soft sounds around

a sweet scent in the air

he is in all there is.

 

He is---,

the way, truth and life

our messiah and king

beginning, end of it all

he is LORD, God.

A land I was told about

this where there is only beauty to see,

where voices are shared by many,

hymes sung in unison.

 

Sweet it was said it would be.

that, that’s heard of but never seen,

yes, promised it was long before now

thou non has ever stepped foot there,

only visions, dreams draw it to us

till that day it will open onto us

but not all shall go in thy place,

nor even have a glance in there

for only faith can take thee forth,

we journey to it through life

towards that grand destiny we trail

awaiting your entry to travel with us

our family of many souls with one body

Listen to this song that sounds in mind

a beautiful piece of art, an angels’ voice

it’s taken me galaxies, worlds and places

seen more than there was for me to ever see

tasted more than there would be to taste

here is the song that we sing here today

a song of peace, oneness and harmony;

 

Listen to the song that sounds in unison

victory, a song of victory against him

all singing from every lands and hills

they have defeated him, yes their enemy

fought a war of wars, battle of battles

sleighed, the evil one put an end to war

the final victory is been handed to them

 

Listen to the song sounding in all lands

a song of conquerors, winners of the war

trumpets being blown from every nation

singing of his wonderful amazing grace

a healing power that he’s laid on them

a voice saying out loud, ‘it’s finished’

it’s a victory to be celebrated for eternity

Where did the life vanish to?
The breathe that was in this land
a joy, peace, a family that was
that had a power so stronger
unity that seemed unbreakable
love that was blood tight
where did it all vanish to?

This a question my son asked,
why the many blood shades
tears, wars, divisions among us
death is all we think of, want
another in pain seems our joy
why dad, why not peace, oneness,
a river of fresh waters not blood
fountains of love than curses
dad, why not humanity than---?

Your name,--- it was and still is her name.
questions always pricked her twisted mind
why that in all that she heard, be my name,
why be born, a time so crowded with sin,
if he knew about her at the start of time,
if he really had her in plan to live now,
whether she had a purpose on this land,
with doubt of being she lived each day
the dark that consumed her was strong,
all the earth was crushing down on her
she needed her empty pages painted,
painted with answers to her questions,
answers to change her, the times she lived,
make it a blessing to live in these times,
giving her reason to keep her moving on.
A day grows by and she met him, this child
he was so happy, joyful and full of a smile,
singing a song that touched her soul gently
like fresh airs, his breath touched her face
there she felt at peace and so loved,
it was like she had known him for long,
he took her broken heart and nursed it
she felt it, it was calm, different it was new
she realised it was him she was looking for,
the answer, the beginning and end of all life.

What is it like waiting in that sleep?

Too long,

stressing

like a blink of an eye;

 

Who can make it after there?

those without stain,

the chosen,

believers;

 

Who shall welcome us?

strong winds,

cloud like people,

or voices without faces

 

What would it be like then?

white,

golden,

or chocolate;

 

Surely we cannot know unless we get there

it’s your decision, life or death,

there or not there,

seems simple but a place to want to be
