Boring Men

Some men propose with a limo and champagne in tow

Other propose over fountains or mountains in snow

Others are simple and just use the “Marry Me” line

Others insist on proposing even where there’s no sign

See love is not just about the velvet or suede box

Its not about the gold ornament with a shiny rocks

Its not about getting on one knee waiting for a yes

Its not the perfect arrangement with clues for a guess

Proposals can be shown off and even go viral on media

Inspiration from youtube will just cause euphoria

The focus of the moment will be lost in meaning

When its really the beginning of teaming

Men, your lass will get kids, add weight, get wrinkled

Will she still be the one with the love you sprinkled

Ladies, your lad will go bald, get round, get old

Will he still be the one without the status and gold

Look beyond the now, beyond the fame, beyond “the perfect day”

Look into 50 years, have you loved each other in a remarkable way?

You may say that it is boring now but why want a show-ff when

I’d best be married by the romantic boring men

Inspired from a blog post I read here

Take the plunge…

Does music play and bid you not to dance ?

Live to the full and not like in a trance

Feel from your heart and give others

Honour your Mothers and Fathers

 

Does the rain fall and bid you not to shelter?

Have a plan don’t live helter skelter

Don’t play in the cold if you will get sick

Know the seasons to plant and those to pick

 

Does the traffic jam bid you not to break?

Be alert and attentive for others sake

Your brothers keeper caring and tender

Keeping to the right not as the rule bender

 

Do the stars light up and bid you not to be in awe?

Smell the coffee and the flowers, it’s the door

To happier stress free life that’s for sure

Take in the beauty of the air that’s pure

 

Does the book open and bid you not to read?

Enlighten yourself gain knowledge indeed

Learning never ends with the littlest of things

Work hard and wallow in the joy success brings

 

 

Does His Son die and bid you not to repent?

God’s love for the world as man He sent

To live and serve, to heal and teach

On the cross the price paid for every soul to reach

Castle on cloud 77

It must have been a dream

because I opened my eyes and blinked twice

It could have been unreal

every part of me was very happy

but it was no dream, it was so real

all the feelings, the butterflies

the glitter in my eyes, the smile

it just took a thought, a castle built on cloud 77

a castle built so large, it wouldn’t have been real

but every room, every door, every window

real as the beautiful blue sky

every stone placed above the other

exactly where its supposed to be

beautifully reaching to the sky

so tall the castle as was the dream

so beautiful, so delicate, so intricate

meticulously decorated and furnished

with every good trait and feature

who would have thought of me a mason

a well designed and built castle this is!

Castle

From me to You

Walking through the meadow then I look yonder

Beautiful grass beautiful sunrise just makes me wonder

In awe I slowly shut my eyes and stretch my hands

To touch the horizon the ever expansive lands

I raise my voice and let out a melody, a song

To you Oh Lord, my life, my soul I belong

How great is thy faithfulness to me

Greater than the mountains high and the ocean sea

How awesome are your plans and thoughts

My hope in you when I cannot connect the dots

 

I run through the meadow alive and in peace

In love with the Creator His love for me will never cease

He is able to do exceedingly abundantly more

More than I can imagine, with Him I will soar

I will walk and not be weary not even feel faint

I will run this race in His strength because I know I am no saint

His grace daily will I plead to forgive, cleanse and meet my need

His face diligently seek to give direction and the way for Him to lead

I brush throw the flowers in the meadow my life surrendered

My great shepherd, like a sheep my heart my will is tendered

Its not all Vanity

Lost I have been many things i have seen

the vanity of life that has been the drinking and binging

what for all of these? what to gain for the pain?

after all the paid jail fees? what’s after the acid rain?

 

the vanity of life iterates repeats itself

the trials irritate but bring wealth

or more tribulations that may reduce health

depending on the attitude don’t pity self

 

what then remains is it simply being sane?

is it the job, the money, is it all the same?

the power, the security, the wealth and the fame?

what happens when life deals and whats left is shame?

 

redemption we plead redemption decreed

the sins of our past to be redeemed

the shame to be cleaned pain to be healed

our eternal fate corrected and to be sealed

 

Only by grace can our redemption be

only by Grace and through His Son to set free

His truth to permeate the vanity of life an sin

His love to forgive and cleanse deep within

 

So fear not this life with its flaws and vanity

Be strong take courage and take the city

be a life changer make an impact in your vicinity

Life is short, when it deals remember your Christ given liberty

 

 

Footprints in the Sand

” One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

“LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me.”

The LORD replied:

“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

Happily Ever After…

Once upon a time in the land of Forever,

A man was known, for conversation that was clever

One day a dame bumped into him socially

Not virtually though, but physically

 

Long Hair, Goldilocks was her name

Beautiful blue dress to dazzle her frame

She quickly was enchanted by the lad

Not wondering if it was a façade

 

Amazing smile, Baldilocks was his name

He would spot a likely buy for a dame

Get it, pay it and gift it as his charm

One wouldn’t think it as he is the lion not the lamb

 

Happily they walked hand in hand

Through the forest trees and through the land

Closer in friendship they grew each day

Until Baldilocks went missing one day

 

They used to meet every morn at dawn

One day He didn’t show even after hours had gone

Goldilocks worried he had lost interest

And went on her way without jest

 

Two seasons down she decided to talk

Sent the mail through the royal hawk

Baldilocks later replied to her letter

He wasn’t bored he was just not the communicator

 

He turned out that he liked her and so did she

They went on to their lives to live happily

Well that’s a fairy tale ending that may never have been

But having it here would make for a better ending

Iron fist woman

I met her not so long ago this iron fist woman
She is intelligent for sure and she realies on no man

She is a student of business
library in the night times dont mess
She is studious this iron fist woman
Disctinction achievements, Yes she can

She is a worker of a multinational
Her collegues find her fair and rational
She has climbed the ranks over the years
She is deemed to have achieved amidst many tears

I met her not so long ago this iron fist woman
She is intelligent for sure and she realies on no man

She is a single mother of many
most of whom are above twenty
Shes supportive of and loves them dearly
though sometimes she makes them secondary

She is the C.E.O of her well to do Company
started with a few coins and a million dollar epiphany
making marks in the male domionated business world
to motivation engagements she is called and re-called

I met her not so long ago this iron fist woman
She is intelligent for sure and she realies on no man
Her trust is in God the Father and God the Son
God the Holy Spirit to guide her till her day is done

Tears in Rain

Delivery on the door step Valentines day had arrived
A card, chocolate and Flowers from these pleasure I derived
my heart leaps for joy and a broad smile on my face plain
Drops well up in my eyes, these are tears in rain

A Friday afternoon in a foreign country at the beach bay
My heart longs for that one person who is miles and miles away
I take a walk to clear my head nothing seems to replace that emptiness i feel inside
I miss him. the tears I cried have dried
I see a couple holding hands my heart breaks from the pain
Drops well up in my eyes, these are tears in rain

You love someone beyond their weakness I want him and none other
He gets me on the cellphone we talk for hours no breather
He tells me he thinks about me all the time cheeks turn red
He listens to me. He understands even when nothing’s said
My love for him runs deep I see it drives me insane
Drops well up in my eyes, these are tears in rain

Sometimes men don’t express what they feel
Sometimes I felt like this love wasn’t real
Did he love me enough, I wondered
Were my expectations to high I pondered
Maybe we were never meant to be
I told him off and let him be free
The aftermath was totally unexpected though
He was crushed. Spirit broken to the core
He was confused . He cried right there on the phone
I realized I didn’t know what I was doing then
I made it right with him even though we’d fight again
Drops well up in my eyes, these are tears in rain

He learned to be more expressive. He wanted me to be happy see
He loves me beyond my imperfections and tells me constantly
He fills my reserve emotions with joy unexplainable
This was all crowned when he asked me to marry him
Ofcourse I said yes without twitching a vein
Drops well up in my eyes, these are tears in rain

Love will come

The feeling of looking at clear blue skies
smiling because the night was cold and gray
The feeling of love busting through my insides
smiling because love came my way

The feeling of running through a sunflower field
smiling because I feel happy and free
The feeling of love on a heart wound healed
smiling because love found me

The feeling of flying in the air without wings
smiling because the air keeps me afloat
the feeling of love inside me sings
smiling because am flying in a love boat

the feeling of driving on a clear highway
smiling because I missed the traffic
the feeling of love like a sun ray
smiling because bright and photographic

the feeling of dreaming and hoping
smiling because a better day will come
the feeling of love will keep me coping
smiling because that love will one day come
