2021

2021 in view…


Year of greater glory.
Beauty for ashes.


Honour for shame.
Gladness for sadness.


Gain for pain.
Joy unspeakable.

Favour for labour.
Grass to grace.

Divine restoration.
Divinely arranged.

Blogging – Your Voice & Wings

Blogging will give you a voice
To speak to the world in your own way.
The voice you always knew you had
But never knew how to use.

Blogging will give some wings
To fly with your writing goals.
The wings you never knew you had
Let alone knowing how to fly.

Blogging will be the online channel
For you to let out your thoughts & feelings
The ones you’ve bottled up for so long
To the point you are bursting at the seams.

Blogging will take you to new destinations, and back
Where your feet have never touched before.
Sharing with people across the continents
And across many mountains and seas.

With blogging, you’ll see life afresh
In a new and inspiring light.
You’ll feel a sense of significance
Sharing your stories in your own words.

Blogging will give you the feeling of control
Of being incharge of your writing life.
You can write whatever you want
And post it whenever you want.

Blogging is pure freedom of writing
That you can hardly find anywhere else.
Many people are embracing it
Whether as a hobby or as a job.

Speak The Truth

A poem on speaking truth
Photo credit: Joel de Vriend/unsplash

Speak the truth and never speak a lie.

Speak the truth even if it’s to your hurt.

Speak the truth even when no one believes you.

Speak the truth and you won’t have to worry about remembering what you said.

Speak the truth but don’t force anyone to believe you.

Speak the truth, but do it in love.

Refocusing From Temptation

Oh temptation
The more I try to resist you
The more you seem to persist
Making the fight look so tough

Oh temptation
You started like a thought
Now you are so overwhelming
Pushing me so I can fall.

Oh temptation
You got my attentions
Now you want my emotions
So I can give you some actions.

Oh temptation
You cannot overcome me
I’m refocusing my thoughts
Far, far away from you.


*This poem was inspired by Pastor Rick Warren’s Daily Devotional of 7/7/2020, entitled, Instead of Resisting Temptations, Refocus.

The Resurrected Saviour

In His birth
Divinity became enwrapped in humanity
For the salvation of mankind.

In His death
Divinity suffered in the hands of humanity
Paying the price for the salvation of mankind.

In His resurrection
Divinity had Him forever established
As the only Saviour of mankind.

Now That The Year Is Over


Now that the year is over
We are all crossing over.
A few more hours away
Will be a brand new year, day.

Now that the year is over
It is time to move over
To a brand new beginning
With joy, without whining.

Now that the year is over
Lay aside the hangover
As we begin again anew
All of us, not a few.

Now that the year is over
Let not your heart quiver
Be calm, be firm, be strong
Stand right, don’t be wrong.

Now that the year is over
Away with doubt, be a believer
Do not rest on your oars
Flying as the eagle soars.

Now that the year is over
Give your attitude a makeover
Renew your mind for a fresh start
Enter the new year with a new heart.

Our Love Will Last Forever

I am yours.
You are mine.
Our love will last,
Till all ages pass.

You gave me Your best
When you sent Your Son
To die for me on the Cross

You spared nothing at all
To win me to Your side
You’re my loving Father
I will love You forever.

You gave me the living hope
While I was perishing and hopeless
And all I had was nothing

You’ve given me Your all
So I can be one with You
This love we share between us
Surely will last forever.

Prove Them Wrong!

Succeeding beyond expectation

They said you would give up
Prove them wrong: stand strong!

They said you would fail
Prove them wrong: succeed!

They said your marriage wouldn’t work
Prove them wrong: make it work.

They said your life is impossible
Prove them wrong: make it possible

They said you have nothing more to offer
Surprise them with new and innovative ideas

They said no one has ever done or achieved it before
Prove them wrong: do it and achieve it

They said there is no way
Prove them wrong: find a way

They said it is over for you
Show them you are just getting started.

They said they have given up on you.
Shock them: don’t give up on yourself.

They said you can’t walk a mile
Prove them wrong: run ten miles

Whatever they said against you
Prove them wrong: be unstoppable.
