Those that needed love killed love

Yet the love they killed keeps loving them

We shed the blood of love

Yet stains of the blood of love cleanse us

The love we did create injustice against

Keeps speaking mercy and justice for us

We break all laws, destroy images of love

Abuse the likenesses of love

Desecrate the institutions of love

Yet love gives us rest at night

And wakes us up in the morning.

I Will Wait (The Original)

The clock is ticking so fast

Yet I will wait for the Lord’s time

Everyone and everything is going very fast

Yet the silent voice says ‘the best is in God’s time’

Microwave, drive-thru, social media, all seem fast

Yet Mama said ‘good things take time’

So though the vision may tarry yet will I hold fast

Cause the vision is for an appointed time.

Love is an Umbrella

β€ͺLove is an umbrella ‬

β€ͺIt covers you‬

β€ͺBoth in the rainy days ‬

β€ͺAnd during sunshine ‬

β€ͺThough umbrella can be red‬

β€ͺLove covering is pure‬

β€ͺAnd though some umbrellas‬

β€ͺCannot withstand storms‬

β€ͺLove is inherently storm-resistant‬

β€ͺSo when knocked down‬

β€ͺNever destroyed‬

But rather, strengthens the foundation

β€ͺCause ‘we are built for this!’‬

What You See

If all you see is what you can see

Then you need a pair of glasses

Maybe not for your optics

But for your heart

Your eyes are naked

They only see what is physical

Your heart is protected

It can see what’s not visible

So don’t live by what you see

Live by your heart

After all, even the just shall live by faith.

My Lost Treasure

Like a lily, you grew up so quickly

Radiating the glory and splendor embedded within.

And like the grass, you withered away too quickly

That we couldn’t capture the true value of your personality.

.

Leaving an indelible vacuum in the field

A vacuum that only wishes can fill

But wishes are never horses

Else I would have been an ostler.

.

When I think of the visions and people you could have reached

Tears roll down my cheek

Yet like Solomon, when I consider the evil in the world

I congratulate and count you fortunate to have left early.

.

I call you my lost treasure

But since you’re not in ‘lost n found’

You’re better called my ‘Stolen Treasure’

As the freezing hand of death has stolen you from us.

.

Your desire to become a world trader was cut short by this aggressive monopolist

Your sun set before the dew of the dawn

And your midday dark as dusk felt like 9:11

Rest well beloved, I will see you at home when I finish the good fight!
