  • Love Is Dead

    Love is dead and no one Is mourning. No one mourns because no one knows They see the flowers, we see the smiles, the soft whisper of sweet words and feel the sensual embrace of the lover. Gold, silver, pearls and rubies. All beautiful and shiny. Bright lights and starry eyes. Perfect smiles and perfect photos. They have been carried away by the lure of Eros. Love is dead and no one mourns. No one mourns because no one knows No one knows because the impostor is here. He says: Take it. Don’t give it Say it. You don’t have to mean it If you want it, go get it Have…

  • I’ve Come A Long Way.

    I’ve come a long way. A long way from sitting on the floor and crying because a boy isn’t paying me any attention A long way from trying so hard to fit in and be liked A long way from lying to myself and everybody about who i am A long way from engaging in risky and dangerous behavior without caring about myself A long way from hurting the people who love me because i didn’t know how to love myself I’ve come a long way. I didn’t get here by myself. God brought me. Through the pain of brokenness, he lovingly put me back together. I may be cracked…

    Rain rain go away The feild is set for play today Alone i walk in search of clay Alone i feel inside today With them she went away they say Away with them! Oh Lord I pray Who will save my friend today? Who will save my girl today? Where is my child? Where is my girl? Where is my hope? Where is my pearl? She’s only a child, what does she know? Why make her reap? What did she sow? Let it be me, let it be us Let it be them, let it be just Let it be fair, let it be soft Let it be peace, let…

  • #POETRY: What Is Sin?

    It is the glory of God not honoured. The holiness of God not reverenced. The greatness of God not admired. The power of God not praised. The truth of God not sought. The wisdom of God not esteemed. The beauty of God not treasured. The goodness of God not savoured. The faithfulness of God not trusted. The commandments of God not obeyed. The justice of God not respected. The wrath of God not feared. The grace of God not cherished. The presence of God not prized. The person of God not loved. That is sin.” ― John Piper

  • Good Night Zara – God’s Lent Child.

    “I’ll lend you for a little while A child of mine” God said – For you to love the while she lives and mourn for when she’s dead. It may be six or seven years or forty two or three but will you, till I call her back, take care of her for me?
