F.R.I.E.N.D.S.H.I.P

Friendship comes with a price
Letting go of who you are
Letting someone into your space
To be vulnerable, though not weak

Friendship comes with a tag
Honesty and openness
Even when you hurt
To be sincere, though not blunt

Friendship comes with friendliness
Assuring smiles and warm hugs
A little sacrifice of goods and oneself
A two-way lane, never one

Friendship comes to a hard part
Finding one to truly call “My friend”
In all intents and purposes,
An onerous journey of a lifetime

Wait For Time

Empty hollow promises
Filling the void of the
Night

Swiftly, swept away
By the floods of the
Morning dew

Leaving behind
Piercing echoes of
Pain

How Time flees
Bearing on her wings
Agonies of Yesterday

Pain lingers on Today
Tommorrow, a sure harbinger
For Freedom

Wait for Time

My Lord, My King, My All

I searched for You
I found who I was
I gave up myself
I found You

I sought Your heart
You showed me mine
I surrendered my heart
You led me to Yours

The closer I come
The more I detest my vanities
The nearer I come
The more I desire Your virtues

One With You

Lead me
Through the doorway
Along
Narrow corridors
Of the King’s pathway
Plant my feet
On Calvary Hill
Where Love
Kissed Mercy
Set my gaze
On Your holy Face
Your peace
Enshrouding
My longing heart
Speak with me
In a still small Voice
Make me one
With Your heart

A Journey of a Thousand Steps

It’s amazing how Little grows
To become so Many
When Time is permitted to excel
And Consistency thrives
When Willingness is the
Daily companion
And Sacrifice embraced
When we conquer our Fears
And step out in Faith
When small steps of Passion
Becomes a life of fulfilled Dreams

Look at that Child
She is crawling on her fours
Give her 15 years,
A teenager painting her nails
See that tiny seed of Hope
Incognito, as it were
Give it 15 years
Clients and business cards

It’s amazing how Little grows
To become so Many
With a little bit of
“I believe I can do it”
“I will try and do it”

A journey of a thousand steps begins with a step.

Getting To Know You By Heart

I have learnt to give people
The benefit of the doubt
To discover who they are
It’s always immature
And somewhat lack of insight
When we make up our minds
About people
Before we actually meet them

At times we size them up
Clothes, hair, shoes, phone, car…
And make up our minds
On how to relate with them
Without actually meeting,
Interacting or
Getting acquainted with them

God chose David
Because of his ruddy looks?
No. But because of his heart
God knew David by heart
God expects same from us

It’s a great noble virtue,
An honourable gesture
When we make effort
To look beyond the physical,
The colourful razzmatazz
And get right down to the basics
To get to know people by heart

The heart is the mirror
To who we really are

Giving

Giving.
It’s not about the gift
It’s a lot about the giver
We tend to applaud and adulate
Those who give more, but
At times we disregard
Those who gave so little
It’s human nature
A natural human tendency
But, it’s not how God intended

Jesus applauded the widow
Who gave little out of nothing
To teach us a valuable lesson
The widow desired to give
Her heart longed to give
Hence, her meagre possession
Was not a deterrent
Jesus knew she gave from
The heart, her heart only

We have to learn to thread cautiously
When we applaud gifts and givers
Every gift is important
More-so every giver
Thankfully it is God who rewards
He rewards the heart
Not the pocket
He blesses motives
Not the charismatic moves
We must learn not to judge a giver
By the measure of his gift
But by the motives and intents
Of his hidden heart

When we master this skill
We will realise how important it is
To appreciate and praise every giver
With true heart-felt words of gratitude
Despite the size of their gift

Don’t Stop Believing

Don’t stop believing in yourself.
Don’t stop believing in God
Who makes all things possible
And beautiful in His time.

Don’t stop believing
In your dream,
In who you truly want to be.

All around you
A ton of brick walls,
Nothing seems to work,

All you have now is nothing
But your faith,

Hold on to that faith
Tenaciously

Don’t let it go
Don’t stop believing in yourself

Dream. Desire. Achieve

Take A Look At Myself

It is so easy
To point fingers
And lay blames
We recount what
Should have been
And what the other needs to do
We feel like champions
And pat ourselves on the back
We lose compassion
Until we find ourselves
In similar situations
Then we realise what
What we should have done or
How we should have acted

I need to take a
Look at myself
Pretend with a little
Bit of role play
Or role swap
How would I want others
To treat me?

A little compassion makes the sun
To shine in someone’s garden.

Souls Aflame

Revival
Must result to
Reform.

If not,
It is merely
An expression of
Enthusiasm,
An outburst of
Emotionalism,
And a display of
Entertainment.

We must not only
Get rid of the
Old life,
But also make
Great efforts to
Take up the
New life;

We must make Jesus
The Core,
The Crux and
The Cornerstone
Of our lives.

Revive us indeed, Lord.

Grace Wins Every Time

In the Book of Esther, the name God was never mentioned; yet, throughout the book God is evidently at work in the lives of the people and the intricate affairs of the nation.
Even though it appeared as if evil men were gaining the upper hand, God was still in absolute control protecting His people.

We may not completely comprehend everything that is happening around us; nevertheless, we cannot relinquish our trust in God’s salvation. We need to maintain our integrity and faith in God by doing what we believe is right and just.

Esther who risked her life to appear before the King, became a great heroine to her people; Mordecai who was effectively condemned to death, became the second highest ranking officer all over Xerxes’ empire.

No matter how like a dead end our conditions may seem to be, no matter how evil, sickness or sin may seem to reign and gain ground, even when we just want to give up, we cannot afford to give in to despair for God is still very much in control. His grace is always available for His people. When the timing is right, we would see that we already have the victory by His grace.

Be assured, grace wins every time.

Faithful Father

God’s faithfulness in my past
What a sure testimony!
A constant reminder!
Need not be perturbed
Of what the future holds
He is always faithful
He never changes!
Through every season
Through every pathway
Even when I forget how faithful He is
His faithfulness shines through
His Word prevails

Faithful You were, yesterday
Faithful You are, today
Faithful You will be, tomorrow
Faithful always You will be

Temporal Insanity

At times I’m foolish
At times, ungrateful
I go off a tangent
I walk out on You
In search of fool’s gold
Exploring my insanities
Temporarily I am my king
Temporarily I am for me

Your endless Love
In close pursuit, relentless
Many times I change
You remain the same
Forgive my temporal insanity
Lord I’m Yours
Always Yours

(A Poem of Sorts)
