Beset with uncertainties of the future
hurling “what-ifs” intensifying gloomy woes…
…tortured minds grieve in affliction’s turmoil 
fearing tomorrow’s insecurity-despair 
longing to be shielded
inside God’s fortress of truth's assurance
against invading skepticism and doubt.

Besieged by enigmas of life’s realities…
…apprehended souls struggle, confronted wearily

“The wages of sin is death”* says God’s Word
Showing man’s transgression-caused damnation
Revealing corrupt, carnal, foolish mind
Midst deceitful heart, gruesomely defiled.

He’s the Saviour, the Way, the Truth, and Life

Genuinely gracious
Through Christ’s ransom for my soul
Setting me free from sin's wages assuredly
Condemned not I to suffer eternal punishment.

Rehashing History: Legendary Lizzie
Lizzie Borden took an ax
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.

Whoever wrote this jump-rope song
About Lizzie Borden got it wrong.
Though she did give her stepmom ax whacks aplenty,

A worthless worm…writhing in wretchedness
Hell-bound creature because of iniquities
That was I: doomed to everlasting torment
Condemned to suffer forever…

Reached down to me wondrously…

Transforming my life miraculously;
Now, like...Read More

Impuissance Seed

Was a more selfish weapon so created
those maleficent hands hold themselves acquitted
and in the brutality of its design
deem luxury to be their self sustainable narcotic

But upon such a fake evolutionary pedestal
would belligerence gain its foothold
yet still the spiritual communal
would decline

I finally watched the much talked-about
R.Kelly interview. And it was off-the-rails crazy alright!

Of his innocence, he failed spectacularly
In fact, he came off like the...Read More

None keeps its inventory
But it creeps into a story
A story of a modern society
Which is plural in nature;
Partly of a rural nurture
Partly of an urban stature
Yet must remain together
Lest it falls a part 
For unity is strength. 

For  peace.

What if peace suddenly broke out, what a bloody scare

I gushed forth eight months after his death,

Shall remain unnamed and acquitted,

For she was not innocent, nor he,
That brazen wolf who found his sniffing way,
