You Put A Spell On Me

You put a spell on me,
Like one in a trance,
Eyes burrow into my thoughts,
Words burn within,
Spellbound- unfathomable love!
In a daze I open my life,
In a jiffy You dethrone my old heart-
Waterworks, in buckets,
Droplets of joy, ruined mascara…
Lies and lustful manipulations,
All gone!
Good riddance! Bad rubbish!
Divine metamorphosis!
Absolute transformation!
A new heart! A new life!
Saved… Changed… I am!

Daily Prompt: Trance

Triumph Over Me, Lord

I give my mind to You
Transform me within
I give my soul to You
Save me from myself
I give my heart to You
Come let Your will reign
I give my life to You
Take over the reins

Overpower my will
Let Your will prevail
Overshadow my thoughts
Let Your Spirit invade

Oh! Triumph over me Lord
Oh! Triumph over me Lord

Transformation!

Transformation!
When I think of this word a couple of things spring to my mind-

How a slow greeny caterpillar transforms into a beautiful colourful butterfly fluttering its wings here and there;
How a tiny seed transforms into a giant fruitful tree with branches and leaves providing shelter for beds and wood for building;
How an idea in the head transforms into a project that changes lifes and indents history.
How a person’s life is transformed from one stage to another under the space of time.
And most of all, how a foetus is formed in the womb, this transforms into a baby after 9months. This tiny baby grows over the years and probably becomes the next Prime Minister, the next Vice Chancellor, the next football star, the best neurologist, the renowned archeologist or simply an ordinary man or woman striving and working hard to be their best.
The transformation of living things is a true wonder and indeed a miracle, and with these musings in my mind I’ll end with a line from one of Kirk Franklin’s song, “There must be a God somewhere .”

Daily Prompt: Transformation

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I took a trip to my childhood town, just to relive some childhood memories and probably to satisfy my curiosity on what has gone on so far. To my utter surprise, the town has undergone a total transformation since I was there 19yrs ago, I was about 9yrs old then.

I parked my car in the parking lot of a mall that have now replaced Billy the Bulldog’s farmland, which used to be there before. Quite a big mall though, thronging with customers. Whatever happened to Billy the Bulldog such that his farmland wasn’t there anymore. Money problems? Death in the family? What of his family? I wondered.

As I walked down the street, the next house to Billy’s was owned by an old lovely couple, Peter and Jane. Nana Jane, as we used to call her then, used to make the best apple crumble you could ever taste. Now instead, in its place was a local bank built on the site. Opposite theirs were the houses of my childhood friends- Mimi, Luke, Stella & Sam the twins, Julie and Bobby. We were such a pack in those days, with sleepovers, birthday parties, tree-top houses as well as makeshift tents on the lawns, it was fun. Nostalgic tears bubbling up in my eyes as I stood there reminiscing. My best friend was Stella and I had a crush for her brother Sam; I’d giggle and laugh at every joke he’d said no matter how dumb it was. In place of their houses now is a local grocery store, a petrol station, a Barbershop, a newsagent, another local bank with atm services. What a line up!

Standing at where our house used to be is now a restaurant/cafe. What a transformation! I soliloquised. Well, 19yrs is pretty much a long time, why the grumble? I rationalised.
