Patience – poem

Patience. Easy to master from a glance but, you forget the endurance that’s needed just to manage the sound of time ticking past you and you confused on why you are stangant, why do I have to take the longer route when, the answer is literally at my front? Patience. A word that many people hate. It involves a level…

Solitude

The world is noisy and busy; I need to find some space in a corner.

The world is full of hate and envy; my little corner gives me some solace.

The world is competitive and exploitative; my aloneness seems to shield me.

Honour – Poem

Honour. a word that goes deeper than just any respect. This word means to reverence someone with high respect. To simply respect them for who they are. Not. What they do. Honour.

Strength – a short prayer

May your battle scars remind you that, greater is in you that he that is in the world, May your past show you that you are perfection in progress, you are not the same man/woman of yesterday May you sorrow remind you that, there’s always peace and joy in the presence of the Lord May your heart remind you that,…

Mama mi

Irreplaceable. My best friend, my mother and my older sister. You have this balance between nurturing and loving and jokey that I love. You are welcoming and also stern with your yes and your no.

Worry sits beside me as questions appear before me It’s been a…

Why?

A question that helps us go into the root, it goes beyond just observations or explanations that are built upon assumptions of the unknown. WHY? why do you fill yourself with this and that? what void are you trying to mask by temporary things? what point are you trying to prove? WHY? Why do you say a word a certain…

MORE OR LESS

The restless soul seeks adventure, The hungry soul longs for satisfaction; But are they ever filled? Do they find rest? For in going here and there – And moving hither and thither, We think we will be accomplished; But it seems as thus: An accomplishment begets the quest for another So we say to ourselves: ‘A little more now, A…

My value

my worth does not lie in your validation nor does it wraps itself around your perception of me. I do not have an identity crisis, I do not live at the centre of your gossip nor do I reside in your lies. My value lies in Christ my worth does not lie in my past it does not flow with…

WHAT WE SHOULD KNOW

We trot around with needless pride, And oft take people for a ride; If we but know our days are few We will be humble. With hollow thoughts and shallow minds, We fill our voids with vanities; If we but set our priorities right, We’ll know what to do. Live for yourself and others too, Who knows! You could paint…
