Like an avenging angel
from the east,
bright blue light streaks
across the evening sky.
It comes unanounced
unforseen and discreet
to spread a blanket of comforting signs.
No place is too far, deep, high or wide
that it cannot reach,
it must tear down diseased despair,
my peace I give to you.
So no fear can reach
from anxieties you are released,
just believe
that you have received
this gift so precious
so vital to your increase.

Think in Peace

Think in Peace

I sit in the garden,
the garden of peace,
and rest upon the Lord.
Then a great rushing voice
like a might wind
spoke gently to my soul

"Think in peace, 
and live in peace
and know that you are blessed.

Rest contented,
be at ease,
you know you are defended
by the master and His elects.

For here in this garden
there is no burden
only salvation
of this you can be certain".

Peace is My Weapon

Peace is My Weapon

You want to fight?
Go ahead.
I wont stop you
I wont lift a finger
to help you.
You there,
huff and puff
while I sit in the shade
watching the clock
go tick, tick, tick.

Not done?
Let me then
lay a little in the sun
tell me when you are done
playing the Hun. 
Tell me when you are ready
to take up peace and bury
the poison in your heart,
so we can have a clean start.

Be Blessed!

Be Blessed!

Be blessed:
with friends that love you
all of you
so you can be true
to you.

Be blessed:
with a body
that functions
even with the aches and pain
there is still a peace inside
that takes that rain
and make you sane.

Be blessed:
that you can  be content
with just enough
even with the fluff
and all the no sense stuff.

Be blessed:
a favour bestowed
even when you feel low
because you already know
the best is yet to come.

Be blessed,
and so it goes
row after row
and feel those rupples overflow...

Not Everyone can go Up the Mountain

Not everyone can go up the mountain with you.

I am sure that at some point you dreamed about who would be there with, at each milestone. Yes there were some you knew for sure, who would not make it. But, there were others whom you were sure would be there, who would always be there no matter what. However, as time goes by people start disappearing and you begin to wonder what happened? What could you have done to hold on to them, to make them stay?

I am realising now, just now, that not everyone will be with you in the end. Whether it is family, friends or the ones you have grown so attached to. Because you had started thinking life would be unimaginable with everyone still there, you may get stuck when they leave you.

The truth is, not everyone was meant to be there at the end and not everyone were even there to cheer you on. Some were there to prove to you that there is no greater power than that of The Most High. Some were there to remind you of how strong you are when they betray you, to remind you how easily you can be tempted, how weak you are without the support of those who truly love you. Some are there to remind you, to remind us, that at the end of it all we are all just people, trying to do the best we can, which is incomparable to the experience of others.

Going up a mountain, I can only imagine, can be a daunting enterprise and we need the human chain that can never break. We will need those who will be willing to lay down to ensure that our path will not be too rocky, We will need some who will push us up when we can go no further and drag us along when we consider stepping back; when we think of letting go of that seemingly impossible dream.

Not everyone can go with us up our mountains, we may lose some along the way but it is okay. We will never forget those who helped to get us there, those we lost and those who showed their true colours. There may be some pain, pain so great that you think you cannot bear it; but you will make it.

And when you get to that mountain top and look over at the other peak, you will just be grateful that God provided just enough of the right people to help you reach that milestone. You will be glad that it was those few special gems who got to experience it with you and who will help you along your journey to the next mountain.

Impotent Rage

The Problem:

Have you ever felt as if you are drowning under the a wealth of raw uncontrollable emotions?

Eva Hoffman Quote: “Anger can be borne – it can even be satisfying ...

When you try to catch a breath, you draw empty? Somehow all the air has been sucked out of your world and the only thing you have left, is deep and shameful inadequacies.

Have you ever felt as if you have been encased in a layer of thin ice? You see all who walk over you, leaving their imprint but they never see you. You call to them but that thin layer of ice is just too thick for you to be heard, too thick to break through.

There are moments where without the bars, you still feel like a prisoner, without the chains, you have become a modern day slave. You shake so badly that your teeth seem as if they are having a good old time in your mouth and just below the surface the lava is licking your insides, causing steam to shoot out from the very depths of you. Confusion assail you and you don’t know what to do. Where is the solution, how can you stop the fire from burning you down, to dust. Do you feel as if in that moment nothing matters except that burning red haze that blinds your vision?

Your voice gets louder, your temperature rises, but no one can hear you, because no one listens to you. You plot, plan and construct all the ways you can rid yourself of this deadly haze, to see clear blue skies instead of boiling hot monsters, huffing and puffing to blow everything down!

Is there nothing that can be done. no cure for what ails you at those moments? Are you doomed forever to suffer in your sense of impotent rage?

It only takes one match to light a spark or to burn down a forest. It only takes one careless act to destroy another person’s life. Just one moment when you forget what it requires to be a human being and to see beyond your own needs. If you cannot see beyond your own problems then the hurt you inflict on another to solve that problem, could be the feather that breaks the camel’s back.

When the back is broken there is a wailing of anger that you try to cover with words of kindness, smiles and fake humility. You sit in your corner and are fed upon by fear. Fear becomes your constant thorny bed upon which you lie and bleed slowly, continuously.

The Cure:

The only cure is to shed false virtues of loyalty to the thing that brings the fear. Renounce and find your voice to speak out, no matter what may come. Take the time to discover if this anger is just or not, and what you want to do about it. Or, may you need to exit stage left to find that you are happier without the blinding lights of a bad situation. Make an escape plan and work until you get it right, then go far, far away and never come back.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.
Psalm 1:3 )

Or you can find peace in the only place you can; in the presence of The Almighty.
