Ran's nets

Ensnare and incapacitate all who swim in the oceans of life
I tangle thy golden skeins.

The purpose of trials
Written: by Miracle Man

God uses our suffering to attest his power,
and always has a purpose for hardships that we face.
He remains a constant companion during this hour,
not always answering prayer at our desired pace.

When money becomes your god
A prayer is like seduction to your soul
Your church is the glamour the world bestowals
Your bible is the flashy neon lights and billboards
Your truth is the multiplicity of greedy
Your salvation is fruition of materialism
Your retribution is its finitude and lost...Read More

Sounds of war
There is rumbling in the skies
It’s not thunder
Babies sound a chorus of cries
Where is mother?

They have mastered the drill
To take cover
Prayer the only sanctuary, they stay still
Survive or wander

There is no heat to keep them warm
There is just rapid fire

A Prayer for Healing
Dear Lord, in these days of trying times,
I come to you humbled and fearful.
I'm in knowledge of friends, family
And the unknown battling heartache,
Depression, illness and death.

Love in my soul and belief in my mind,

Government treatment of me so indignant
Just a pestilence dreamer

Child Soldier

Everyone was screaming and running
I stood dumb in the chaos, my eyes rolling

My pants wetted, a boot pinned me to the ground

Ogres and Monsters
Give us all a fright
They are always ugly
A really awesome sight
Some have huge dirty teeth
And long matted hair
All over their body
As they mean to scare
All the little children
That cannot fall asleep
Cos underneath their beds
These Ogres and Monsters peep
