Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

Fighting God

You promised to take care of me like a new cherished bride I cling to it, waiting until at the point of suicide now your expectations and my anger collide because your blessings seem to always find a place to hide I try to be my own guide then you caution me and call it pride very little, you want me to decide and you say I’ll be okay by just being on your side I’m tired and have kept all these talk aside following my own path and taking my ride my self belief has beaten faith landslide everything about you in me must suffer a genocide your rules and ordinances, no more will I abide if serving you comes with trials then I wish my loyalty had long died and the dividends of my worship to you, just divide Lord God! Now I know twas an uneasy stride now I understand, your blessings and my discipline must coincide now I’ve seen that your love is so high and wide and hating you is like becoming the voluntary victim of a homicide I said you do not care, please Lord, I lied Your ways are mysterious indeed You searched my heart and all you saw was greed because only my desires and blindness I feed and you knew among the wheat, I’ll be a weed. Despite I, not taking heed You were still patient and ever ready to lead You never gave me what I wanted nor stick to my timing but at the appointed time, lavished me with all I need while watering my entire efforts’ seed. Thank you heavenly father! Leaving your presence, I now forbid and serving you wholeheartedly is henceforth my utmost deed.

The Christian I am not

I have been a Christian  for many years,
Hiding behind the mad poet has drenched me with tears
For I am a sinner the chief of them all
Writing poetry that has made me feel appalled

I have coveted, lied, hated and stole
Indulged in adultery with an innocent sole
I have broken my family, and now live in separate homes
While writing perversions of my conquests in poems 

The thing that worries me, is that I feel nothing at all
This is what scares Sidney. C  Hall
I see the ten commandments almost all broken
Save for killing  no words of remorse that are spoken

Am I destined to a life burning  in hell?
As part of the masses with speeches that make heads swell
Denying God and not seeking his Grace
Awaiting the day to say “I have no excuse,” to his face

Or believing a lie that there is no forgiveness
And just going along my ungodly business
Ladies and Gentleman my soul is in turmoil
Sin runs through my veins causing my blood to boil

I say to myself Sid you need to change,
Then the next minute something take me out of range
But I feel nothing, so how can this scare me
If I feel nothing , why is fear in hell, I see

Could this be God preparing my final years
I hope and pray soaked in tears

Jerusalem

Jerusalem, in the white of night,  
  with all the ages steeped upon your shoulders, 
  and the tombs of fading kings; 
  history has been unkind to thee, 
  and the desert sea laden with endless enemies ----
  thou shooting star who shawn too bright! ----
  how wan the dying rose with Mecca roaring in the wind! 
  how it whispers a new witchcraft.... 

A new shackle the zealots bring, on hallowed ground.... 
  where angels fear to tread, lest they spill blood,
  like the lot of man, the rockets shall bring peace, they say!
  and from the east the Palestian, crushed like grapes in a winepress,
  betwixt Hebrew and madmen; 

'O Jerusalem, how the Lillie's lilt in thy wan shadow, 
  how the purge of men shudders to hear your final breath....
  no sun shines on thee like a risen Christ; 
  no banner he bears but love, 
  no weapon formed but wisdom to silence paranoia;
  lay down your swords, and he shall rebuild thee in three days

'O Jerusalem,
  you old arrid hero,
  who needs but the nectar of peace to heal thy ancient bones,
  an old name whispers on the wind.....

The Hypocritical Christian

I am the hypocritical Christian.
I say I follow Christ,
But I'm still consumed by my demons.
I go to church on Sunday,
But I refuse to invite someone back.
I want to serve on mission,
But I'm too afraid to act.
They think I read The Bible,
But I just fall asleep in it.
They think I'm positivity and smiles,
But underneath I'm death and addictions.
They think I'm clean and pure,
But I'm broken and mistaken.
I say I'm not worthy of His love,
But Jesus will never let me be forsaken.
I pray long prayers,
But inside they're empty repetition.
It might look as if my faith is strong,
But my core is too easily shaken.
I say the things I'm supposed to say,
But don't follow His actions or obey.
I speak the truth the church wants to hear,
But deep inside on matters I don't know what to believe.
I walk in shame as if I'm not good enough
To be loved by God and saved through Christ,
But there is nothing I could ever do to earn His peace;
It's a free gift.
I accept;
Now forgiven, changed, and released.
Thank You God,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Holy Spirit!
In Jesus' Holy Name,
We pray,
Amen!

Money

Money money, ringing in your tills,
Calling us to worship,
The hundred dollar bills.
Bend our knees in wonder,
Bow our heads in awe,
At the power of the liar,
Who now controls us all.
From the darkest deep caverns,
To the stars in the sky,
From the infinite universe,
To the strangers passing by.

From your inner most conviction,
To your laughing in the night,
From everything you 're  seeing,
To everything out of sight.

The new God has risen,
To claim the holy throne,
The one that we have emptied,
Our hearts all cold as stone.

The throne that we have emptied,
We killed the rightful king,
Sold his crown an sceptre,
Pawned his sacred  ring.

Raised his bleeding body,
Up on that bloody hill,
The silent lamb still bleeding,
As the money fills your tills.

God of Light

God of Light

I awaken 
In the dark of night,
And face my lord
The God of Light

Who guides me 
Thru the haze of pain,
And takes on him
My guilt and shame

My comfort 
As he takes my hand,
And shows me
How to rise and stand

Sinless, blameless
Once again,
Because He chose 
To call me friend

A wretched man
Though I may be,
He offers fellowship
To me

I lay no claim
To being just,
He gives me grace
In trade for trust

Impossible 
For any man,
Without the mercy
Of “I Am”

The song of God 
Is in my ear,
Calming each
And every fear

He sings 
His weary child to sleep
This loving shepherd
To his sheep

Protected from
All earthly harm
As I slumber 
In his arms

No longer frightened
By the night
My father
Is the God of Light

Christians

On this night before Christmas
As I sit here alone
Thinking of Jesus
And all at his throne

I bow my head silently
And pray just to you
Lord Jesus your help
Is needed it is true.


There are people who think
Our Faith is not true
And want me to stop
Believing in you.

They push and they shove
Their beliefs down on us
Making laws that remove you
From schools and such

They say there is  no place
For you in this world
And if we believe
Then we have all been fooled

They have made it illegal
To say even your name
In schools, at work
Or even a game.

The faith of all others
Is fine they have said
But Christian Religion
They want to be dead.

This country was built
On Christian belief
And most arrived here
To get some relief

So now it is said
That saying your name
Offends those that don’t
Believe in the same.


Your life you have spent
Delivering this word
Will not go unnoticed
Even if they could

You died on the cross
You died for our sins
We’ll stand up for you Jesus
It’s time to begin

As Christians we’ll unite
We know what to do
We’ll stand ready to fight
To believe in you

We won’t be ashamed
We won’t hide your name
This Christian belief
Is not just a game

Lord Jesus the strength
We know comes from you
And proudly we stand
For we know  you are true.
Amen

Coming Signs Red

On the Passover Lord 
Almighty blood
In our salvation
four back To back
Bleeding in the Heaven's
 
Eclipsed in blood
Sea waves roar 
Upon your throne 
On the Passover 
Hailing from the clouds 

On the feast of the tabernacle 
I bow to you my king
The moon bleeds 
Almighty power 
Forgive us our sins 

Eclipses the new year
A sign of great glory 
From the eclipsed moon 
On the feast of the trumpets
Falling to the last moon 

The Passover
Feast of the tabernacle 
God's sign
Unto mankind 
Salvation his Holy name

He who believes
shall not perish 
Instead drinks 
from the chalice 
of everlasting Life

Pray It comes
To Passover
in the end

Lord, I've Been Hurting

		
	
Lord., I've Been Hurting!

This one thing I am
 most certain…
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.

I trying to do right, but it 
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?

So many people
 pass me by.
Sometimes, someone
may say;  “hi!”

I don’t know if this message is
 getting across?
I feel so confused and 
completely lost.

A message of “help” has my
 prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!

He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
 filled my soul!

Spending time with Jesus
 is time well spent!
It was for you and me that 
Jesus was sent!

Pslam of a Christian

My Lord is my reliance, sole
He claimed a body that a mother scorned
His termoil testifies me whole
His spirit has me not forlorn

Yet satan deigns to me instruct
My every path must he obstruct
With a ruthless tongue
He devices wrong
And counts upon my every fault
Every virtue to assult

And so I seek my death with zeal
My death like hidden goods I seek
A broken temple bears my sovereign's seal
Son of David mild and meek.
Jesus heal me who am weak.

THE I AM apocalpse

I did behold the vision
one like a daughter of man
singing before the armies of heaven

I did hear what the seven thunders said
said they put on your war robe LORD and go
then go and cleanse the earth with your sword

The Flight

I awake to the dawning of another day
To my knees, I kneel and begin to pray
This prayer is different unlike any before
All of the sudden a sound outside my door

Upon my feet, I run down the stairs
I open the door, is anyone there
Nothing to be seen, all grows still
Dark clouds gather, the sky is filled

As a dark overcast, shadows the day, 
Not a hint of light, not one sun ray
All of the sudden what do I hear
The sound of a trumpet echoed my ear

From the distance came a great shout
Graves burst open with spirits in route
The dead in Christ have begun to rise
As legions of souls take over the sky

All of the sudden my feet left the floor
As my body floated up and away from the door
All that I held heavy has become so light
The day has come, I am taking my flight

I look to the left, I look to the right 
Family and friends taking their flight
I look beneath, and what do I see
People screaming, falling to their knees

All of the sudden planes fall from the sky
Death comes to many in the blink of an eye
Cars missing drivers, as they flip and flop
Trains without conductors, refusing to stop

Children in search of their missing mother
Wait some are even missing their father
Sisters and brothers, where have they gone
Many seemed to be stranded and all alone

Screams cease, the chaos no longer I see
Flying through the Heavens, I have been set free
All memories of lost loved ones have been erased
As I stand and look upon my redeemer's face

I stand before him in a robe of white
As His appearance shines with glorious light
He opens the book and judges us each
Our crown sits before us just out of reach

Judged by our works, each jewel is placed
The numbers vary due to our spiritual race
Did we strive with our best, was the battle long
Did we sit in fear and refuse to stand strong

Did we testify to a wicked and dying world
Did we share the truth, God's holy word
Did we preach the sermon, Jesus is the way
Did we allow our fear to silence our say

Did we stand alone for God at all cost
On our knees did we pray enough for the lost
Did the choices in our life, glorify His Son
Did we turn our backs to His truth and run

Every crown tells it's own story
Each stone representing God's glory
Some with many, some with few
Our reward given as it was due

With our reward placed upon our head
We are now redeemed from among the dead
We no longer have to watch and wait
As our feet step inside the eastern gate

As I look up, what does my eyes behold
Mansions grand and streets of pure gold
Is that grandma and grandpa, I look to see
Their arms opened wide running toward me

Oh how I have missed them, it has been too long
As the choir in Heaven, plays redemptions song
Angels guided us to a throne so bright
The holy seat of God, what a beautiful sight

Angels surrounded the throne shouting holy holy
As the souls in Heaven praised God with much joy
I stood before the throne amazed and in awe
Energized and transformed by the greatness of God

His glory shines as Heavens only light
No nights, only days forever bright 
No sin, no sickness, never to grow old
In the arms of loved ones forever to hold

No words can ever explain the beauty of Heaven
So much greater than my mind could ever imagine
Colors so vibrant, painted by God's own hand
Walls of precious stones surround the land

My eyes can't behold all there is to see
The greatness, the worth of this great city
Beneath the tree of life, I see my Jesus near
I run to Him, with joy and eyes filled with tears

I fell before Him, on bending knees
I thanked Him for all He has done for me
His arms extended, as He held me so tight
He spoke my child, you was worth the fight

We walked hand in hand along the crystal sea
Admiring all that He has prepared for me
Paradise in it's beauty, I will forever roam
With my Jesus, My Savior, I am finally home

How I Need Jesus


Dear Jesus…  I realize
how much I really need you!
  I want to honor, 
love and trust you!

I  know that others will
disappoint me…
I know that you’re here….  
And will take care of me!

  Your principles of holy
living is what you taught!
Love, Joy and peace…
is what you brought!

 May I bring honor 
 to your name!
Your message of salvation,
I need to proclaim!

Dear Jesus…  You’re all I need!
 And so much more!
It’s you that my life 
was meant for!

 I offer to you, my lord, 
praise and thanksgiving!
For all you’ve done,
 And the life you’re giving!

You all I’ll ever need!  
The anointed one!
There’s victory in YOU!
Life’s battles are won!

My Kiss

by Walks In Shadows
(Motif: spiritual)

Let me kiss your face,
Oh beautiful child,
Before the crack of the whip,
Before a sponge touches your lip,
Before the betrayal you will sip,
Before your blood must drip,
Lord, can you feel this?
It’s my kiss.

Untold Bible Stories

Of a child growing up without a father
And the love and nurture of a mother
The struggle for food on less than a dollar 
In a world of abundance poverty still a ruler

Dried up wells and contaminated streams
Life on the brink in a desert of dreams
Knowledge like water, how rare for some 
Education and schools taboo (Boko Haram)

Remember to pray my son, mother said to me
There’s so much evil, airplane crashes and terrorism
And Islam and the perversion of this religion
The focus and fear drives us from being Christian

Remember to call on God the only true referee
The one who can guide us to unity and victory
He seeks neither an election nor a campaign
Forget His love we remember only hatred and pain

New Creation

From bottom to top, 
my house was decayed. 
Through thousands of years 
of commands disobeyed.  
I girdled my loins 
to rebuild my home. 
I re-laid the foundation 
stone by stone. 
Brick by brick 
I rebuilt the walls. 
House was renewed with 
many victories small. 
I painted the house 
with colors of new zeal. 
I furnished it with 
virtues that heal. 
I planted the garden 
with flowers of love. 
I installed the fountains 
with waters from above. 
I sat in the garden 
admiring my creation. 
At last, to God 
I offered adoration.

A better friend I can never find

A better friend I can never find

One so loving, caring and kind

Even though I let Him down

And cause His face to have a frown

He still loves me in spite of all that

And on my back He gives a pat

And says, "It's ok son, I still love you"

Most people know Him as a carpenter who was a jew

What makes Him different from others was the mission that He had

To please the Father in heaven, to make Him glad

By sacrificing Himself, so that we could be free

The second person of the Holy Trinity

Stripped of His glory to become like one of us

The wonderful counselor, His name is Jesus

He didn't care about the pain that He had to endure

Because His love for us was very pure

A crown of thorns was placed upon His head

He took our place on the cross and died instead

So that we could be free from the wages of sin

All we have to do is believe in Him

Believe that He died for our sins and rose again

Then we can all become born again

And spend our eternity with Him

In a place that is far from grim

My Spiritual Strength

When I embraced my Christianity
It brought me closer to serenity
God has been the best friend I ever have 
And I can depend on Him and His love

I found in this life a much clearer light
For God made my existence all things bright
He gave me the love of a family
That I will treasure for eternity

As I walk over joyous and sore times
I can feel His divine presence at times
Lifting me up and guiding me at length
Giving me hope and spiritual strength 

I hope that I will know more of Him still
And to live life according to His will

The Joy of being a Christian

The joy of being a Christian

Is that we have Jesus within

To pick us up when we fall

He loves us all, both great and small

He's always with us wherever we are

Even though sometimes we feel that He's far

He speaks to us through His Word

He is the Wonderful Counselor and the Great Shepherd

He loves us with unconditional love

That's why He came down, and left His glory above

To die for sinners like you and me

So that we could be saved and be set free

He shed every drop of blood to save us from our sin

So all we have to do is believe in Him

Believe that He died and rose again

And then we can all be born again

Live for Him and follow His plans

He has promised us that no one can snatch us from His hands

So we should be thankful that we're His children

Coz when He comes back, He'll take us with Him

Submission

scratch, scratch
strike a match
throw it in
and burn the batch

lies, lies
an orphan cries
loveless words
made to despise

scare, flare
from here to there
likely tale
that goes nowhere

books, cooks
bishops, rooks
games played now
by saints and crooks

lies, flies
a prophet dies
holy writ
as moon star rise

reason, season
almost treason
heralding in
a winter season

death and flies
loveless beast
in light’s disguise

wake, shake

Why I love the Lord

I love u Jesus for what you've done for me 

You died on the cross of Calvary

You didn't think about your self

Coz you wanted me to be saved from hell

The crown of thorns upon your head

And the fact that for my sin you bled

When I think about the pain that u bore

I start to love u more and more

Words can't express my love for you

You've changed my life made it brand new

So now I have a place secured in Paradise

I'll reach there when I close my eyes

I want to live to please you Lord

Coz you are the maker, the One true God

No reason to be sad

There is no reason for me to be sad

Coz Christ is with me, He's my heavenly Dad

When I think of Him it makes me glad

Coz He gave up His life for the undeserving and bad

I was once like them having friendship with the world

But in a moment, like a swirl

Christ changed me and made me His

Now day and night all I want to do is this,

To please my Saviour and to live for Him

Rather than being gloomy and grim

Coz I was paid for with a price

It was my Lord and Saviour's life

Because He went through all this shame and pain

I can believe on Him and be born again

Now I'm saved from the power of hell

So it's my duty to share the Gospel.

To tell everyone about His amazing love

Coz He came down and left His glory above

So that He could save sinners like you and me

All this is true, it isn’t a story

We're Never Alone

While watching the sea breathing in and out
nagging truths lap at the shores of my doubt.
And I search the sky for traces of God
amongst trillions of stars scattered about.

Walking upon the same sands martyrs trod
I view their restrictive beliefs as flawed.
For I do not believe in damnation
or else the concept of love is a fraud.

Morals form the soul’s primary foundation
sin is yielding free will to temptation.
And these thoughts cascade like unceasing waves
as I contemplate hell and salvation.

Obsessed by what may lie beyond our graves
we willingly become religious slaves.
And seek guarantees scared of the unknown
reassured by the belief Jesus saves.

I cannot comprehend God on a throne
or that we are born with sins to atone.
For I believe that God's eternal love’s
unconditional, we’re never alone.

Child of God

I'm a child of the One who gave the earth it's design(created)

When I think of it, it blows my mind

That the God above would come down for mankind

Heal the sick, the lame and the blind

Preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to come

Tell the world that He is the One

The only way to Heaven above

And that's why He came down because of His great love

He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities

Suffered to the point of death, such a loving person was He

So that those who believe in Him can spend their eternity

With Him in heaven that's where we'll always be

A place free of sorrow, pain and calamities

That beautiful moment when Lord Jesus' face we see

Our bodies will be glorified and we'll be the same as He

All we have to do is to Admit, Believe and Confess

And the Lord Jesus Christ will take care of the rest

Change our entire life even though it's a mess

Coz He is a compassionate God full of kindness

So once we are saved we must become witnesses

So that others can also share in our happiness

He is coming soon to take us home with Him

So we should live a righteous life one which is free of sin

No One Came




When I was in dire straits,
the heartbeat of my life fading away
No one came to my rescue
When I cried out for help,
calling on the calvary ... 
vision of a cross came to me
It was dripping with blood,
not my own
The blood spelled a message on the ground:
Pick up the heavenly phone,
and call 764 before all hope is gone
Son of God
He can save your soul,
but you can’t be afraid
of letting this life go
I did what was revealed to me,
I called on the name of Jesus Christ urgently
Suddenly my pulse of life
started to get stronger,
and I was determined to hold on longer
Made a vow to help others who were in trouble,
emergency situation
Gave them the Doctor’s number on the double,
prayer call for salvation
The Son of God came to my rescue,
when I cried out that fateful day
If you see the message of the cross,
I suggest you do what it say
