This is where my grief met Jeremiah's lamentations
As far as the east is from the west, that’s how far the Lord has removed our transgressions from us?
Why do I feel not far removed from my sins or the sins of others?
Suffocated by faults and indiscretions of human-ness that lacks discretion
Of fearlessness; the lack of intuition
Of childishness but a child born in the wrong time?
But God’s timing is always right?
Can you see this Lord?
Is heaven mastering this disaster only for our inferior minds to finally resurrect from the shambles?
And realise that You have been building us a new city all along.
I believe in the Author of fate so maybe that is where my hope springs from
Or from the crippling fear of the effects of reality
Is this how feeble we are as humans?
How our chromosomes, blood cells, alleles all created from dust can just wither away when one gust of wind comes before we can find shelter
How our intangible thoughts are invisible holograms that effect nothing
Our father who art in heaven should we lose faith while we are on earth because there is plenty in heaven?
Will we make it the pearly gates with our infirm humanly wrongs and all the cavities punctured in our teeth
And speak to the guardians in low tones of how we praised the Creator on earth forgetting to mention how our own faults in the sweetened land He placed us in; have led us to corroded incisors
We consume more sweetened sin than soured heaven.
I cannot stare at my reflection in the mirror because I feel like a ghost
And legend has it that once the undead return they leave no shadow
They simply exist among other human humans
Who put status updates on their whatsapps saying ‘be still and know that I am God?’
It is easy to be transfixed in the same position when the walls around you are not caving in
I feel I have been saying much without saying anything,
Because maybe this conversation should just be between me and Him
But I do not know what to say to Him
My human human-ness has failed me once again
So maybe He could just look into my laden heart, desperate thoughts and fearful mind
And decide where I can go from here
Where they can go from here
Where we can go from here...
For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever

All are dying be it young or old
We should say "here lies our dearest dearest friend"
But, this is not the truth being told
What lies here soon shall claim the Earth to dust once again
And he my brother is left in heart and mind lingering as thought
Wherebe the rest of him? Now and forever abiding with our god
To this still moment's finality is an inquisition
Did our loved one pass this test; the divine examination
All the answers lie in hopes for he, thee and myself
That in the end we must go on until we shall find out for ourselves

Here a little there a little
Anyone out there...
Can anyone see me?
1 2 3
Its inside you and me...
Can anyone hear me?
A sign I give for free
It's meaning etched on me
Here a little there a Little
A face you will surely see
What may come..also began with me
The riddle is a lifelong mystery
Summarized by a big three
1 2 3
Once a father..came a son...to be born
And raised ..so all may learn
The mystery of the 3
Holy and apart of me
The father the Son the spirit
Reflect for what may become a perfect image- 8
Do you see..
Eye glasses I have given to thee
Do you remember me?
Is anyone out there?

Oh beautiful earth that never stops moving
On earth is where souls are grooving around
Earth is where these bodies shall lay to rest
Beautiful earth that gives birth to flourishing flowers
Wonderful flowers that can do wonders on righteous
Flowers that grows from special soil with pleasant smell
Roses that light love with sweet compelling fragrance
As Sun set leaves trails of glowing red like scarlet metal
Out on the stars that gloats with light over oceans
Oceans that relief those envious souls filled with wrath
The ocean that talk with the most elite individuals
And mountains so humble yet aging gradually
Looking upon us as darkness deceive many individuals
Far beyond the horizons there is a dancing sun like burning furnace
It leaves earth with darkness which conquers over weak souls
But the holy moon gives earth faint light like dying candles
The night is called and handles all the stars to their delightful light
Soon when dawn calls be the first to see the dews drop

In a loveless patch the seed was sown
A barren field of thorn
Then tears rained down from Heaven's face
Where heavy hearts have scorn
If harvest time is near for us
Why are we afraid?
Fruits of joy were ours to reap
Had not Genesis we betrayed
New life alone must struggle now
In Garden's tainted soil
Roots defiled in passion's play
Where lofty lusts have spoiled
Why have we in True Love's name
Made this new one's strife
That he must live to bear the Cross
To redeem our sacrifice?

Like the tick and wine of the Clock
Like the Rising and Setting of the Sun
Rising from among the multitude
To disappear like the thickest of Clouds
But just for a while.
Yes! You Reigned
Surely the Oracle did Reign
But! That was yesterday
You Reign as if you will forever do
But just for a while
MJ You Reigned
Like the foreign goddess on stage
A god unknown to everyone
With unbelievable walks across the spotlight
But just for a while.
Our fathers Reigned
Our forefathers Reigned
But neither of them do today
Who will Reign forever?
Who can? Today and tomorrow.
Even the World they say
Don't last forever
Hence the wise note the saying
Make Hay while the Sun Shines
And take Rest while the Night lasts.

I have been sequestered amongst the desert sands
like the Israelites before they claimed Canaan
Wandering about right beside my homeland
All for some kind of cosmic lesson or training
The unsatisfying, brackish water of this cactus
Has given me just enough energy to walk a little more
Yet I feel this is all prologue; it is merely practice
So I wave to Zacchaeus as I climb the sycamore
From such lofty heights I can see a formidable plateau
On which most men sit back and rest on their laurels
I hear the legato breaking the walls around Jericho
Likewise, I hear the Pharisees speaking about morals
I see a man scribbling something odd in the dirt
And abruptly everyone holding stones drops them and flees
I see freedom from bondage with but a few words
And I see myself rise above by dropping to my knees
Finally, I see all the world aflame and begging for another Flood
I see Two Lampstands standing before God and the earth
Many could have been saved if they had just washed in the Blood
But they new only of value and nothing of worth
