For in foundations-deep this bane resides, From it our sight he brewed. A Lion's den, a burning furnace, An affirmation to this infinity I see. With the last of my embryonic fear Shedding in grace's mighty embrace, Like a parting sea, a prodigal racing to his father, I see hope erupting in violent splatters. Nehemiah … Continue reading To the carpenters first son, Hopelessness’ bane
With God, There is no end, There is no rock bottom, You keep going deeper.Tweet That's Love One of my best verses on love would be Jeremiah 31:3 in the msg version which states, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!" Such a profound statement!A love so unconditional … Continue reading On Love.
You hover in the shadow Of your uncertainties, A portrait of perfection Smeared in pain; No flicker igniting within Yet, A candle lives, Lives in every soul. Delicate yet ravenous, Incandescently burning, Traveling through obscurity Erupting into the beauty Of the galaxy. That candle in your soul. Let's ignite lives With addictive hope; Giving life … Continue reading That Candle In Your Soul.
My best authors are those who write in circles. Where Goodbyes are Hellos And there's never an end to the beginning. Today, As Deserts whisper with tales of seas they once held, I see mountains; A one time proclaimed lava Boasting of precious days. It is then I declare, For real this time, The Earth … Continue reading Earth: My Favorite Author.
I have always wanted glasses for as long as I can remember. Glasses are for the brilliant, I would say. I saw people with glasses as people who were in touch with some form of divine intelligence and I wanted that. The thing is, my eyes are small, if you've ever seen me reading you … Continue reading Intelligent People Wear Glasses.
I was safe in the embrace of fear I thought, As pines pricked and slimy branches choked Spilling blood for remission, Distorted salvation! In the mist of illusion, a known pain is better than an unknown. But you see Hope; The match of faith just wouldn't stay still, With one yea, it lits! Engulfed in … Continue reading Dear Old Hope
Flip! Flop!! Grandma's rhythm, An angry doorbell screaming; Callers of patience running scarce. Aunt Freda; Gossip's lantern, Everything is hers to chew. She steps in with a bag full of news, Are they true? Can you prove? Try if you may, to a naught would be your end, The best place to be Is out … Continue reading Gossip’s Lantern.
I wrote this in Kaduna last year and never got to post it. Plan B is working, would write about that when I can. Enjoy.
Some growth we barely see But they be. Roots carving through rocks Born from liquid strength, An eruption to an end But what end? An end is a start if I’m asked. Does Earth leave void? A finish without a beginning? Or a beginning without a finish with a new beginning? Tell me! This hope … Continue reading Hope Lives Here.
Parable! Parable! Sow on fertile it says, But Desert I see. Can I say more? Can I harvest here? Quick sand! Quick sand! Dynamite?Who cares! I do sometimes no pretence, But listen child, even in an arid Desert Oasis exist. ©LifeasChristy . . "I always search for the Hope in seemingly Hopeless situations however hard, … Continue reading Parable!
Silence kills? Kills the negative I would say. Flip the rug and let them in, Intense as it may be. Breathe in;Leave it You would live after it I promise. Counter-clockwise? Why does West sway When North breathes East I asked Pressure I would say, We connect by a thread. So, keep in check the … Continue reading Silence
You are about me Like vast vegetation surrounds a mountain, Your love envelopes me like clouds envelopes Karshi hills. I am engulfed but not scorched, With barefoot I draw near. I am diving in, At the end is where it starts, From death was where life sprang, I perish? I perish. But like always You … Continue reading The Fourth in the Fire.
