REMAIN IN THE BOAT
oooo ah, This man called Peter?
It is I, did he not hear the Master?
He doesn't need to prove any point
but he was with Him on the mount
At Tabor a while ago, him a fisher
Suddenly applied to be a constructor
Imagine, building without a plan
He was not even afraid of harmattan.
Because his mouth was in astir
he asked to move on sea expecting no stir
'if it is you,' a statement similar to mockers
Particularly Jesus' enemies
We heard it in his 1st temptation (mt 4:3)
Among those for his condemnation (mt 26:63)
Same d thief at the left hand echoes in confusion
No wonder Peter began to sink
his impetuosity took him to death's brink.
He should have remained in d boat
The master was walking towards d boat
The rabbi had to return him to d boat
And d wind died not until they enter the boat
Pls, don't be lost in wander
because you seek signs&wonders
remain in the boat the Church
Don't jump to avoid a crunch
God will meet you at ur point of needs.
