The Final Battle


I look up from the valley and I see the mountaintop. Up where the air is clearer and gentle breezes never stop. Where the eagle’s nest can be seen in a mighty cypress tree God’s awesome splendor is waiting there for all the world to see. In an effort to get closer to the one who made it all I will climb the lofty mountain and listen for His call. And when His call is heard and His orders are made clear I will join His mighty army as the final battle nears. The evil one will also gather all his minions here And the battle that will follow will make nations disappear. For all the blood that’s shed will, like a river, flow And the valley will not be the same as the valley that we know. The righteousness of God will certainly prevail And Satan’s wicked army shall ultimately fail. So if you want to be there to see how it comes out Let destiny lead you and there will be no doubt.

Battle of the words

Bravery is the father of fears
Dreams are distant cousins of nightmares
Hope is the sister of prayers
Every night shame lays down and gets screwed by despair
Pollution abuses Mrs. atmosphere
It's a battle between personality and reality 
But obviously nobody cares
Maybe it's because big tough is the uncle of little scared
Planning is deeply in love with prepared
Procrastination is the biggest enemy of determination
Ignorance is jealous of realization
Sometimes strength can get sneak attacked by temptation
Silence can never defeat a great proclamation
When the brain disagrees with the heart
The body dies of complications


Love your self...

Battle Armor

There is no weapon
More destructive than your fear
No shield like your faith.

Battle Ground

Do you feels inside's a battle?
And you just can't seem to win
One day you feel so happy
The next day you feel like sin.

Do people keep reminding you
Of the wrong you did before
And when you feel you're doing well
They just knock you on the floor.

Let me just encourage you
Your battle has been won
For our enemy the devil
Was defeated by God's Son.

Remember to be on your guard
Of thoughts that come within
For the devil longs to knock you down
And remind you of your sin.

So stand your ground my christian friend
In the armour God has given
For He has dealt with all our sin
Our Savior who is risen.

So next time these thoughts arise
Remind him what is written
For in Christ you stand today
Victorious and forgiven.

Battle of Beersheba

With thanks to Alfred Lord Tennyson:


"Charge" they said, and charge they led
    From out of a dry desert wadi:
 Every man of the Light Horse Brigade
    Out of the falling sun thundered!
 Their pulsing veins - their loosened reins -
    Toward the wells of Beersheba
    Rode the brave eight hundred

 In gallop stride they fought and died
    On mighty Walers champing!
 Every man in the Light Horse Regiment
    Faced a foe greater numbered.
 Their rifles cocked - their bayonets locked -
    Onward the wells of Beersheba
    Rode the brave eight hundred

 Again and again the Lighthorsemen
    The Turkish lines outflanked:
 Every man of the Mounted Infantry
    Of horse and rider wondered.
 In squadron raid - in great crusade -
    Forward the wells of Beersheba
    Rode the brave eight hundred

 And across the sands into their hands
    The Ottoman guns fell silent:
 Every man in the Desert Mounted Corps
    The battle trenches plundered!
 With martial force - on valiant horse -
    Toward the wells of Beersheba
    Rode the brave eight hundred

 With God they strode, to victory rode,
    With emu plumes in their hats:
 Every man of the Expeditionary Force
    Sat his saddle or lay sundered!
 Like Gideon of old - their trusty fold -
    Onward the wells of Beersheba
    Rode the brave eight hundred

 On horizon's red light, an heroic sight,
    In clouds of smoke and dust:
 Every man of the Light Horse Brigade
    Across the desert thundered.
 The legend tells of Beersheba's wells:
    How the march on Jerusalem
    To glory led all eight hundred

The Battle Within

I speak of My God with a heart that's on fire
I speak of My God with a true desire
I speak of My God who has given me life
I speak of My God that only a few will see his light
I speak of My God who has given me faith to dream
I speak of My God with no fear and this I've seen
I speak of My God who I pray to each night
I speak of My God that he will open your eyes bright
I speak of My God that he will take away your fright

For in God we should love and never judge
even for those who mistrust or begrudge.

no battle,no glory

With every breath
there's an abounding grace,
with every moment
an appointed place,
with every hope
there is a fear to face,
with every race
there is a certain pace.

there is no trial
if there is no attempt,
there is no rise
if there was no descent,
and where opposition
is often met,
there is the place
our efforts be well spent.
Without such resistance
no man can become stronger
for he has not learnt how to stand
much less knows he how to conquer.

so whenever faced with times like these
let the thought your spirit please
that you wouldnt be where you are
if you never crossed rough seas.

Gods Battle

Wind,rain,sun and snow,
All God`s creations, He wants us to know.
Tragedies,crimes of unfaithfulness draw near.
Read the Holy Testament.
God will silently hear.
Homeless,battered,hungry ; futures unclear.
Stop! Seek guidance.
Ask for God`s forgiving ears.
Missionaries and churches engage in battle.
They shake Satan`s chains.
Can you hear them rattle?
Disciples of Emmanuel devotedly fight,
Marching in Gods army,
Casting  holy vision, forever bright.

a constent battle

At the point of no return,
Beyond all hope,
Can't turn back if i tried,
Don't love this anymore,
Everyone stares,
Forever with dread,
Got to leave here,
Happiness is out of the picture,
Innocence left behind to die,
Judging eyes,
Keep moving on,
Lost without a soul,
Mother is gone,
Nowhere to be found,
Open doors close,
People stop and stare
Quiet screams follow, 
Resisting a constant battle,
Seduction is trying to pull me in,
Trying to resist,
Unable without your help,
Verge of tears,
Wanting hope,
X-ed out of life,
You have the same battle,
Zooming past your head.

The battle within

Sparks fly in the air
Lights glow in the dark
I am gripped by fear
As my worst nightmare attacks
It's shriek pierces my soul
It's roar tests my bravery
This battle has left my control
And no one is here to save me
The air gets colder
The light gives out
The darkness gets bolder
And I'm filled with doubt
I'm standing on a bridge, hewn  from stone
It lies between the world and my mind
Now as it approaches, I'm all alone
But this demon of mine must stay confined
It must never escape from inside me
For the world cannot withstand it
And even though I may no longer be
I will do all I can to hinder it
I summon the courage I used to lack
And stand there dumbfounded
It's eyes glow a fiery glow
It's wings are made of fire
It's sinister smirk scares me so
And I know it's one desire
Huge and menacing, it comes before me
I must now perform my appointed task
'Ancient and evil you may be,
But you shall not pass.'

my poetry battle

Maybe I write about my life too much
Maybe I write about my depression fight too much
Maybe I write about girls I like too much
Maybe I write too much

Sometimes I know what I want to write about
Sometimes I look deep inside and put my life out
Other times I put pen to paper and just see where inspiration takes me 
Let the ink fall on the page and see what awaits me

Should it talk about my life less?
The day I do that I’ll be lifeless
Sometimes I stay up at night stressed
Thinking about what I’ll write next

Ok I’m happy with that, that line is fine
Now I need to find the rhyme
I want to rhyme with every word in the dictionary
That’s just the way my mind is designed

Staring at my wall
I’m stuck
Scrunched up pieces of paper in a ball
Full of rhymes and poetry that wasn’t good enough

I love poetry but sometimes I lose my mind with pencils
That rhyme’s too simple
Come on Alex you can come up with something more complex than that
Listening to Nas, Tupac & Eminem I’ll never get next to that

Having a full blown conversation with myself
Concentration would help
I’m lost for thoughts
I write best when complications are dealt

I just found a line from a poem I wrote a while ago that would be perfect right hear
When I write verses I fear
No one will like it
If my poetry is that good why didn’t one of the greats write it?

Have I got better or have I got worse?
When I die will anyone be interested in my lost works?
When I started I did it to stop hurt
Now I’m trying to make every word perfect not write a hot verse

Trying to come up with new ideas and concepts
Use my lyrical ability and make it more complex
Improving my poetry every day is my only contest
A poem I’m fully happy with? I haven’t wrote one yet

I wrote a poem after a break up
And it was the best I ever felt
The next morning I wake up
And think should I have kept it to myself?

Do I write too much?
Is this why some nights I’m stuck
Lost for words like missing tiles in scrabble
I’ve used that line before welcome to my poetry battle

Inner Battle

This inner battle

fighting for my life

vanquish these feelings.

Fight them off!

Overcome.

No time to fail

Turn around, take a look.

Deep slow breaths.

Finally...peace and serenity.

The Battle Within

Love and trust the battle within,
One of armor and one of cloth,
Both equal in strength and at a great loss.
Cornered by time to live again,
A moment to go back to where you have been!
The principles of pleasure intrude on a pleasant dream.
Love and trust the battle within shouts its damning scream!
One of armor, one of cloth and both are determined to rise again.

Conflict and pressure begin to adhere to this occasion.
One second to catch your thoughts of stop, go, or yield?
Beset by these restless conflicts your need to release introduces itself.
Provoked to endure a graceful truce the weak one falls to submission.
Love and trust the battle within proclaims the very same guild.
One of armor, one of cloth, and both equal with great strength in this world that we build

Battle Scars

Battle Scars


The battle scars are deep and so the healing begins
When you fight the good fight the light always wins
Though the battle may seem as if it will never end
And it’s all you can do is stand and defend 
Your soul from an enemy seeking to pull you down
In a twisted lie of deceit he hopes you will drown
And when you feel you can’t go on because the pain is so deep
Remember you sow what you reap
So stand tall and be still
Wait, and while you heal allow for His will to prevail and follow his lead
Because in truth it is only Him that you seek
Wait to see what He has in store for your life
It is a future full of peace and promise, not strife
Look at the stars so high above
Feel their beauty in your soul and feel his love
Remember the struggle might seem long
But He will never leave you for it is to Him you belong

My Battle

I was broken and bloody My soul was torn asunder,So death came for me.He thought it would be easy I thought I was done. But when he reached out to take my soul My spirit which was fading fast found its last ounce of strength and began to glow with an amazing power. So a battle began a battle for my soul. My tattered body then feel into a coma to try and save the last bit of its self.The battle raged within me for a full day. Somehow my spirit weak and faded managed to give death all and more then it could take. The battle ended and I awoke....alive the victor. So the question I ask the world is "If I still won the battle that weak and tired. What is there that I can't do if given the time to heal?"

It's a battle to fight for the good in yourself

When you kept rejecting 
Your worst behaviour
Goodness was already there.

When you opened the door
To let isolation out
Humanity was already there.

When you kept fighting
The anger in you
Peace was already there.

When you tried to understand
The way others behaved
Knowing others was already there.

When you kept getting up
After you had fallen
Endurance was already there.

When you finally got fed up
With your own misery
Happiness was already there.

When you finally let go
Of low self- esteem
Your true value was always there

When you did your best
To conquer your fears
Courage was already there.

When you searched deeply
To feed a spiritual need
Spiritual food was already there.

When you gave up hating
Your fellowman
Uniting love was already there.

When you finally gave up
Unrelenting guilt
A clean conscience was already there.

' Warriors ... The Battle Cry Song ... '

There Are Sounds of Ancient Thunders
There Are Sounds of Ancient Drummers
        Calling … Brave Warriors
         Gladiators and Warriors

And They’re Marching To The Cadence of Their Hearts’ Pounding
Marching, To The Cadence of The World’s Rage Resounding
They’re Going By The Beat of Their Heart’s Pumping
By The Steady Flow of Blood and Bloodlust, Tells Me Somethin’

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Chorus:

But, We’ve Seen These Men, Playing With Their Children
We’ve Seen These Sons and Their Laughter, I’m Hearing
We’ve Seen These Men, Loving Their Babies
And Tenderly Holding and Kissing Their Ladies

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From Warriors … When They Die

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Sticks and Stones, Swords, Arrows and Bombs
Lances, Knives, Hand to Hand Combat, Napalm
God Almighty, Oh, Thy Kingdom Come
Please Rescue Us, From The Kingdom of The Gun …

And Prophecy Is Marching – Listen, All Who Arms Bear
Warriors, Must Beat War Weapons Into Plowshares            ( Isa. 2: 4 )
And When War, Is No More, Then We Will Hear
All Warriors’ Battle Cry, Will Be An Amen Cheer !

              … Gentle Warriors …
            Peace-Loving, Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From A Warrior’s … Last ‘ Why ? ’

                … Warriors …
           Courageous Warriors …

How Can Flesh and Blood, Mortal-Men, Be So Fearless, I Wonder
Are They Strengthened By Duty, Love and Honor
Facing Danger, Death and Being Torn Asunder
Sacrificing All, As A Fallen Soldier …

                 … Warrior …
           Courageous Warrior …

Battle in my Heat

Battle in my Heart 

Heart of mine; what is the reason for living?
When your will to live is dying?
All the days and nights; was each tear really worth crying?
I Battle in my heart; for the one I love...
Fighting reasonings to keep us as "one?".
The unity of our vows; echo forever in my heart.
Wishing and longing, my heart aches being apart.
I married you because I love you...now and forever.
Uniting our love..will always be my endeavor.
The windows of my soul; sprang tears, confused feelings are taking its toll.
Hold me..find me..fullfil once again, my desolete soul.

The Last Battle For The Throne

The last battle for the Throne

Funny how they think that all of this is a show 
 Or, perhaps a intriguing story of some kind 
 But either way this is my reality and the chapters will soon blow your mind
 The Last Battle For The Throne is the only battle that never ends in real-time 

It all started with a thoughtful glance a picture of reverence a devotional sound or a sweet melody
 Something that strikes as my destination in the family royality But then I learned of others true intentions
 and the difference of the true meaning of loyality
 The last battle for the Throne 
 Is it up to me I dont know let us see

As I sit alone and find new thoughts to discover I lose myself once again in the battle the fight you have prepared my heart mind body and soul for 
 Caught between The poetic vision and dedicated dream and gives me the ambition to explore 
 but the angels that watch over me whisper wisdom of patience for me to just wait and more than you will witness and see
 That you are not just a legacy but the beginning of a new dynasty
 The last battle of for the Throne 
 Is the battle of my lifes destiny

A Clash of current contemplations have me preparing for the best but thanking you for bringing me through every test
 Even loving me beyond my self created mess
 Too many times life has gotten the best of me through the strongest hits
 But most of all I see you tought me how to pray my way out it
 Thats why I know The Last Battle Throne is a battle that God has Prepared for me

Storms of confrontational battles fought with Wordy Swords The biggest battle that comes with judgmental wars
 But if you can remember that he is there and will never put more on you than your soul will ever have to bear
 For the my last destination is to.get to the city of Mansions and I know its a throne with my name on it when I get there
 The Last Battle For.The Throne purpose is clear 

But For now I must starve the demons that are like crows that try to Feast upon my soul
 Almost lost my focus no too long ago 
 Then he sent you to get me back on track 
 because you see the Goddess in me
 You was my eyes when I was blind emotionally mentally even physically
 I know they gonna trip when they find out it was you that came to rescue me
 But we both know alot of it is based on the foundation of insecurity and infancy of the mind 
 And the real ones know that your one of a kind 
 So what he the reason I shine 
 Silly goosey thats why he is mine
 If it wasnt for him I wouldn't ever known my pens inspirat
 The Last Battle For The Throne Is my motivation
 So understand I aint got time for the contemplations of haters Currently working on my future wife status even though thats 2nd nature
 I told you devil I was coming back to get whats mine and I'm not leaving till Ive posses the promise of my land 
 I am reaping the harvest that still only a few could understand 
 Ive cried my last tear because the storm is finally over now
 Im coming out with robe and crown because Im destined to.be great
 The Last Battle For the Throne is for me to take

The Battle

“The Battle”

Dark
Pain
Destruction
Despair
All I smell throughout the air

Smoke
Hatred
Death 
Strife
The struggles I deal with all my life

Sorrow 
Sadness
Defeat
Submission
Leaves me wondering and wishing
Why can’t the world be good?
Why is evil’s reign never in vain? 
Oh so evil
Oh so Dark

As I relinquish my wants
And accept the way I am
Light and Happiness come to the surface

Grace 
Hope 
Faith 
Love
Good will stand tall
Above it all
Oh so evil, but oh so good
The battle is yours for the taking.

The Battle

We heard your roar and felt your wind

Watched the water wash away our lives

We were completely at your mercy

We tried to run but it wasn't fast enough

For here we stand heartbroken

This is one battle we have lost

Everything we worked so hard for has just 

vanished

Now we are crying out for help

For we have no food, homes, or clothes

Praying there is still hope to find loved 

ones

God please give us the strength to go on 

from here

We are just people fighting for our lives in 

a town fighting for it's furture.

Valiantly They Go Into Battle

Valiantly They Go Into Battle

Go forth into yonder distant land…
Valor in your hearts and squash rackets in your hands…

Go forth into the battlegrounds yonder…
Play valiantly so that all will be in awe and be held in splendor…

Go forth as the rising stars in junior squash…
With youth, tender years and promising talent abundantly awash…

Go forth and trumpet all your skills…
Vanquish all resistance with volleys, drops and kills…

Go forth and stand tall as champions…
Glory and fame will be rightfully yours when you emerge champions…

Go forth as a team full of  confidence with hopes high…
Coaches, parents and team officials believe it is your time…

Go forth into hard fought battles to emerge as champions…
Girls and boys, you’re the best junior squash hopes from our nation…

Go, Malaysia, go…. !

..... a fare thee well tribute  to Malaysian juniors in the 2015 British Junior Squash Open.... the team won the individual GU13, BU17 and GU15 titles.... a very good haul...

"THE BATTLE ISN'T MINE!!!"

The battle isn't mine
I'm thankful Jesus will make everything turn out fine
And he keeps everything in order and in line
whenever I need him he knows exactly what to say
It doesn't matter whether it's night or day
For all his mercy and grace I couldn't ever repay
My Jesus always knows exactly what to do
I'm so glad that forever his words are true
And he knows exactly what I need
For at the right moment he knows what words to feed
No matter what I'm going through
Jesus always knows exactly what to do.

The Battle of Armageddon

This world and all
 of it's confusion.
Shall one day reach a
 dramatic conclusion.

All of the wars and battles shall end.
That day our Messiah returns
 to earth again.

So much has clearly been 
said and written.
Concerning the final battle 
called Armageddon.

Have you been paying attention
 to the latest news.
Concerning the country of 
Israel and the Jews?

Israel will be alone that dreadful day.
All of the Jews will bow 
their heads to pray.

All at once... They'll look
 up into the sky!
Behold!  Their messiah 
returns from on high!

On a white horse...  Jesus and his 
army shall prevail.
All of man's weapons will be 
destroyed and fail.

He shall reveal himself, along 
with his pierced hands.
And will reign triumphant
 throughout the lands.

He shall rule and reign for 1000 years.
There'll be peace and ;joy. 
 No more tears.

Will you be with him when he returns?
Or here on earth... as this world burns?

Heaven or hell.  Which will be
 your home?
The choice is yours.  
And yours alone...

Battle

Why these battles present themselves? Unknown...
Out of my control, 
Gotta let it roll,
What can I do?
Be honest and true,

Sometimes doesn't seem right,
Comes day by day,
Learning which ones to fight,
That's the trick

Dwell on the wrong,
Or concentrate on the good,
Have faith in your choices,
All will be mellow in the hood

The Battle Within

What I want to do, I do not. 
A war rages like no other kind. 
What I do not want to do, I do. 
A never-ending fight for my mind. 

That which is evil that which is good, 
is part of the devils affliction. 
Can anyone out there rescue me 
from pain and hurt of my addiction? 

Will the good overcome all evil? 
Will evil ultimately prevail? 
I know within my heart what to do. 
And I try, but always seem to fail. 

Like two dogs fighting inside me. 
One black representing a bad seed. 
The other white, representing good. 
The one who wins is the one I feed. 

Who can deliver from this mayhem? 
Who can deliver from my despair? 
The answer is in the Lord Jesus. 
Who can be found with one simple prayer!
