Forgotten Garden


Forgotten Garden

Beautiful green valley,
Was its name.
With a river running through it,
Showering it with clear waters all day long

Full of life,
With lots of butterflies
flying around it
That was my garden.

The valley lies dry,
Covered in dust
As though no water
Ever passed there.

The green beautiful
Garden is long forgotten

A New Song


A New Song

I feel a new song in my heart,
A song of thanks giving
And praises, to only you my lord.

All that I am,
I owe to you,
And all I have
You have provided
Unto me.

Sorry for the lost times,
When I did not appreciate you

Sorry for the times
I have praised myself over you
Thought of;
Am good, smart, powerful
I deserved it,
I have earned it,
And filled myself up with pride.

The true colors of love


The true colors of love

What’s the color of love?
Red, green, Pink, Yellow,
May be the rainbow

We buy Roses, Chocolate, and Jewelry
In the name of love,
With a sweet beautiful card.

Yet remained selfish, Irritable,
Not willing to let go of the ill manners,
Or even forgive those who hurt us.

When you say love,
I want to see truth,
Patience, Kindness,
Faithfulness, Forgiveness
and perseverance

For those are the
true colors of love.

Envy


Envy

Many are the times
I have wished
I had what others have

Many I don’t even know
what to use them for
Or even where
they got them from

Thank God,
He never granted my wishes.
Thank you for protecting
me from myself.
Thank you for saving me
from the troubles of this world

And now Lord,
I ask you;
Please take this crazy
desire away from me.

Take it way,
Before I hurt myself.

Please forgive me


Please forgive me

Forgive me oh Lord,
For I have not been good to you.
I have ashamed your name
And sinned against you
in uncounted times

My mind has not been pure,
It’s covered with sinful thoughts.
It’s like a market place

My tongue,
Instead of praising you
Says a lot of bad things
Some against you,
Some against your creations
And judging them in my own ways
Please forgive me

My body has not been any different,
It’s not a temple good enough for you,

If I was to cut off each part
That leads me to sin..
Not sure which one would remain
Please forgive me

I have angered your spirit,
With my thoughts,
Speech and actions
And I don’t deserve you’re forgiveness

I can’t ask you to judged me
For your so perfect and am not.

Am asking for forgiveness,
In your mercy, love and grace
I really need to be your child again.

Waiting


Waiting

As I wait,
Every minute feels like
a million years

I get so impatient
Much as I would like to see
your will be done as you promised

I get so tired of waiting,
Yet I know yo word is true
And I that this about myself

Give me the strength to wait
A hope to face a better tomorrow
And a greater hope to see
your promise for my life

Give me a song
To remind me that you’re God
That you care about me
More than I can even imagine.

And as I wait,
Let that song be played.

Sound of Joy


Sound of Joy

It’s like a sound of harvest in the fields
A song of food after famine
Just like the old good times of x-mas

Every part of me is happy
Exited,
Joyful
Passionate

God mus be tickling me,
I got no reason to laugh
Yet am laughing
This feels good

All I want is to feels like this
everyday of my life!

Back Online


Back Online

Every bad begaining
Has a chace to a good ending

God is not done with me yet
I would not want Him to stop either
I just need to trust him more

Same questions
Who am I today,
Where am I today,
And how am I today?

A reason for each piece of my life,
Say No to what the Lord says No to
And Yes to what he says Yes to

What about me?
It doesn’t matter
He knows better
So lets click next,
XOX am back online

Getting on with Life


Getting on with Life

Life slips away if you don’t hold on it
You simply pass from one day to another
With no or less feeling of yourself

We all drop it at some point in life,
I have turned a new page,
For a new story,
For a new life

Am getting on with life,
So should you.

God is working on me


God is working on me

Life used to be normal,
But now,
Everything is changing
And life is so challenging

God is still working on me,
With trying times,
It’s so hot in here,
The tests are no jokes,
and the purifying is not either.

General cleaning has never be easy,
It’s hard work,
It hurts, it’s painful,
Costly and it takes a lot of time.

And he is still going on
With his job.

I can’t wait to look at myself
Once he is done.
I know I will be shinning.

Passing Time


Passing Time

May times when life gets tight
we chose to sit back
and believe time heals the damage.

My cousellor calls it wasting time,
I call it giving things time,

Fix it if you can,
If you can’t chill it,
I say fix it if you can’t
worry on how it will go

Why ask Gos’s help
And hold onto the problem
Release if you need help
Only cover to protect
& protect no damage

Pass no time,
Act on it,
With hands or prayer
Work upon it.

My life


My life

Looking at this scroll of my life
Am impressed at the great things
I have done

However I close my eyes
at some scenes in my life
as shame swallows me

My counselor told me,
We all have ups and downs
Though there are those things
we never expect ourselves to do

Every little thing we have done,
We have lived,
We have learnt from it.
It has shaped us,
Be it good or bad,
Proud of or ashamed of it,
That is your life,
That is my life.

The past is gone,
The story still goes on,
We need to chose how it to ends
That is all I need to remember.

Hating Self


Hating Self

Every wrong thing in my life,
Drains back to me,

I blame myself for lack of information,
Trusting easily, loving wrongly,
Hiding from the truth,
And under looking situations
I hate myself for this.

The sooner I get over this the better,
For no matter what,
I cannot avoid myself.

Difficult Choices


Difficult Choices

Every time I chose to go ahead,
Another difficult choice is places before me

Sometimes I rely on myself to find a way out,
As things go on, they get harder, I seek your help.

How long will this go on?
Why can’t I rely on you all the time?

I have fallen many times,
Yet learnt nothing from any of them,

Help me to lean on you,
Go by your choices,
May be then,
I won’t be faced with difficult choices.

Keep me from Ending


Keep me from Ending

My mother always asked me
to finish what I started,
With so many around me
I wish I had a software to delete
or stop all of the with one click

At times I wish I was younger,
For everyone to look at me as a kid,

At this point of depression, I feel may be,
This is where others chose to take their own lives…

Oh lord, Keep me from ending it,
I would like to live on,
See my children and grand children

Faint Hope


Faint Hope

It had been long
I have tried hard,
Yet no good has come out of it

I see trouble in every opportunity door
That opens before me

I know am not alone
Immersed in such feeling
I wish to find a way out.

It would be great
Helping my buddies swimming with me
From faint hope,
To greater hope,
Better life,
Better memories written

These tears won’t help,
They simply stain my face,
And tear my heart to pieces.

I need to be trough, even in tough times
Confront my fear, and hope on.

I need to survive this,
And encourage those behind me.

Seeing a counselor


Seeing a counselor

Life has been mixed up like knots of spider threads
Forcing them to untie, tears them apart for ever

I need a hand in this,
Am seeing a counselor,

I feel so guilty to sit and start lamenting about my mess,
Cos I realize every mistake I made in front of this stranger.

It feels so stupid to tell your mess as though it’s a supper man’s story

“We all error in one way or the other”,
“nothing to be ashamed of… No one is perfect
The errors make us who we are,
Affecting us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually…”

He comforts me,
To search for all the mess I think I have,
In each knot and untie them one by one…

If you,
Have no hope,
Have faint picture of the future,
Or don’t think you can recover from this
Or you wish you were not yourself,
Then we have work to do…
He conforms his position


I wonder,
Does he know what he is asking?
Some, I had accepted them as part of my life,

I know it’s painful going over these things once more…
It will take a lot of time from both of us…
But am willing to try

Which Road?


Which Road?

Am standing at this cross junction
Wondering which road should I take?
Should I go straight through, left,
right or backwards?

Am scared of the unknown,
I want to go back…
It has been hard reaching here,
And doing it again is not easy for me…
And my fear is growing every day,

Dear Lord,
You’re the way,
The truth and light…

Show me you foot prints,
And in them I plant mine.

You promised never to leave me,
And I believe you won’t
Hold my hand, and lead me to where am supposed to be.

Lead the way LORD.

Could this feeling be stopped?


Could this feeling be stopped?

My nights are spent in a dream land,
One dream after another

I feel something is wrong,
And needs to be set right

I feel, am locked up in a prison,
With no light dashing into my room

I feel trapped in a bubble
With less air for me to breathe

I feel am dying slowly,
With no priest around me to bless me as I take my last breath

I don’t know how to stop this,
But I wish I could stop this feeling.

This bitterness is killing me,
Could this feeling be stopped?
