    Foolishness

    Who can judge your ways or correct you on love? Who has a better perspective than you who’s above? Who can teach you about righteousness or wisdom? Who thinks you’re only real if their sins are forgiven? Who weighs your mercy and finds it lighter than theirs? Who demands you justify yourself...

    My Burdensome Friend

    My burdensome friend, harassing me daily, If I don't watch you you'll rush to betray me. Slipping open my secrets and my negativity, Never freely doing good unless it's serendipity. My burdensome friend, when needed you're silent, You hinder my kindness but help me be violent. All the pain we've...

    Many will say...

    "Lord Lord! How we glorified you at our church service! D'ya hear our sermons about how your Law's worthless? Have you seen our great love towards immorality? You must be so proud of our overseas charity! We've ensured your old anger's kept safe undercover, But as for Paul's writings, may we...

    Views on the Sabbath

    Gratitude The bride of the seven, forever adorned, A time to appreciate all that's been formed. She rushes to meet us with gifts of repose, Like the seventh prepares an octave in notes. She suspends the cycle before it resets, To help mind and body from all that besets. She’s leaving so...

    Peter On The Shore

    Man, I'm exhausted...These crowds are horrendous! And if I dream it’s of a sea of faces that's endless. They push and shove, in this heat! And argue or sing, Shouting their requests over the voice of my King. I miss the days at Cana, when I had a minute to think, When we spent time together over...

    CommUnity

    To see another's faults reflected within you, To hear their ways echo all they have been through, To hold their dream dear and try to assist them, To believe in them when all others resist them, To give them your time like it's theirs to begin with, To trust they mean well when they seem...

    Clouds

    A one-time event, never to be repeated, 'til day is far spent or their light is depleted. Blown in the blue canvas, spreading a story, Consuming the sun or shied by its glory. Practically still from wherever they departed, Trails, islands and whole worlds left uncharted. And who can behold...

    A Grand Symphony

    Every bird with music on its tongue, Collaborates in a united song, A resonation from across the blue, An endless melody composed for you. The crashing waves outline the score, The trees and wind sweep and roar. The beats of thunder, a cricket's chirp, A grand symphony for you, from Earth...

    Woe

    Who is this son of unknown, teaching us on the Law? He keeps filthy company! Traitors, lepers and wh*res! How does he speak thusly without our education? And why do so few of his words ruin our reputation? We're getting shady looks now, whispers when passing, Though we prove our purity in...

    Broken & Built

    We must be broken to play the part of a servant Only then we can bring a heart that is verdant We must cast aside all that once truly mattered And watch as our pride and strength's duly shattered But all this works in our favour, given the fact That an image reflects more in a mirror that’s...

    That Morning at Sinai

    I've hardly slept in two days and got a cleaning fixation, Sometimes I couldn't even breathe because of anticipation. Will God really appear on top of that mountain? Or will Moses say “No, because you all doubt Him!” But this morning is different, the sky's a strange colour, All these dark...

    The Narrow Path

    How narrow is the path that leads to true life, With logic to the left and reason to the right. “We’re under grace so come out to play!” “No no, you’re wrong, and it’s Sabbath today!” These two crowds keep the true path compressed, Too left or too right, the truth's far too suppressed. But...

    The Stubborn Heart

    The root of a tree supports its skyward branches, Knowing not of the wind or how sunshine answers. It refuses to budge, creeps without contrition, Assuming its survival is the proof of nutrition. Its crooked network is deep, entwined beyond reason, That’s the way it is and will be, regardless...

    Hiw weak I am

    How weak I am, how utterly pathetic, My life is a sham and probably heretic. I have nothing to bring, no skills to offer, Except feeding the moths and blessing the robber. Guilt overwhelms me and I’m filled with dread, Imagining being shown who I should’ve been instead. Though within and without...

    The Word (Water & Fire)

    Your words surf through time and distil upon paper, Like the blessing of rain upon the faces of nature. Encompassing our lives like the seas to the islands, Bestilled for the meek but a flood for the tyrants. Your Word’s a blazing lamp, I see its burns in our past, Flames chewing up the kindling...
