CAN WE GO BACK TO THE TIME: Lessons from a child

Can we go back to the time? When our hearts knew no guile When we had no ill will or grudge; How sweet were our hearts then Can we go back to the time? When we had no worries For we knew our needs would be met Hence our trust didn’t shake Can we go back to the time? When…

EVERYDAY…

Everyday, God gives us a reason To come back to Him; For we’re in need of a Saviour Hence call on Him day and night, Everyday we are given a chance To put a smile on someone’s face; For though many put on happy faces, Deep within, they are filled with sadness. Everyday we ought to make right All that…

THE PILGRIM (PART ONE)…

I’ve heard the tale of Yonder Land Where air is hale and gold, the sand; ‘Tis said the way to Yonder Land, Be full of dread that minds go bland, For even the brave have lost heart And their courage, torn apart; But ’tis also said of a part Of men who though, they having warts, Reached the Land and…

TO DO LIST…

Talk to the young Talk to the old Talk to the rich Talk to the poor; Learn from the ant Listen to the bird, Watch the sunset Gaze at the moonlight; Be friendly Have good friends; Enjoy your life Prepare for death, Fall in love Go round the world, Be quick to listen And slow to speak; Be positive Take…

THE PRICE OF LIFE

For food and shelter A man may falter But why at his soul’s expense Lose his common sense? Indeed life is hard And the ground is indeed hard; For even with a man’s till The earth may yield small still So do we blame him? When his demeanour is but grim? And he thinks of selling his soul For there’s…

IN THE HERE AND NOW

IN THE HERE AND NOW Many of us abide in the past And in the future, get lost Sometimes we forget there is a ‘here’ A ‘now’ that we live in here So why go back and forth And in the end, lose forte, Of either battling the past Or running to the future too fast? In the here and…

Nostalgia

NOSTALGIA This is my safe haven When life seems like a prison, The gentle breeze passing through A song giving me a cue Ascent telling stories Of my growing up days; Then other times It’s sunrise, Slowly gliding with regal splendour Bringing out my best demeanour; Breakfast time with family And late night stories by moonlight: Playing under the rain…

JUST Love

JUST LOVE In life’s journey Sad is the tale of many; While others are at bliss But to say the least, JUST LOVE Some have fallen in love And it seemed like heaven above, While some have regretted it I know it’s hard, but JUST LOVE Some want it early in life When they are but in their youth Some…

Dear Mum

Writing to you as a man today, to tell you the things I couldn’t as a child. Dear Mum, I love you I loved you as the word hate left my lips, I loved you when fear and hurt let slip, Loved you since you balanced me upon your hips, Loved your smile and your quips despite hardships. Being your…
