Oh Lord, Wean Me Now   Leave a comment

O Lord, wean me!

O Lord, wean me now,
From the spirit of pride.
Why must I be proud?

Wean me Lord,
Before it becomes
   too late
From the spirit of pride,

Do I have Power?
Is it absolute?
Lord, wean me now!

It is on record
   in your Word,
that All authority
   has been given
You in heaven
and on earth. (Matthew 28:18)
You are not proud.

Lord, wean me now!
Do I occupy a position?
Can I receive it, if it
  had not come from heaven?

Lord, wean mw now!
Do I have wealth or
   riches?
Is it by my might or
   power?

Wean me, o Lord,
You possess the earth
   and all its fullness,
The world and those who
   dwell therein.

Wean me, o Lord!
The Proud rich man
   ended in hell
Lazarus, the poor but
humble in paradise,
Help me Lord.

Am I too old to serve the
    young ones in my generation?
Am I too Big to do
“Little and filthy jobs” for You?”
Wean  me Lord!

Does a veil cover my pride,
To accuse others of arrogance
When a cankerworm of pride
   had eaten deep into my bones
   and marrow?

Wean me o, Lord
Help me to turn a search light into
   my heart,
To know and uproot that hidden
   root of pride.

Wean me, o Lord!
Before it’s too late
Because it may soon be late
   In that you will come soon,
Do not meet me  in such a state!

Lord, wean me now!

Help me Lord, 
Let me not replace 
   You with myself in
   The lives of people
Let me not replace You
   with people in my life.

Melody Of Love   Leave a comment

In the month of Mercy, May,
I did not know what to say.

The Holy Spirit came to help,
To begin a journey I must keep.

On the twenty-seven of the month,
Together we met, Mercy and Truth.

In a place of rejoicing,
Eating, drinking,dancing.

For which animals were killed,
There, righteousness and peace kissed.

Hesitantly, reluctantly, unwillingly,
Exchanges were made hopefully.

Goodness and Mercy ought to follow,
As love and peace may grow.

To flourish like a fruit tree near a river,
And blossom as the tree will never wither.

May the Lord bring His will to pass,
To bind us together to flourish and blossom as each day pass.

A Fool Is A Fool   Leave a comment

A fool is a fool,
Dont be a fool.

A fool can be rich,
He remains a bitch.

‘I, me, my, myself’
Are the words of a fool.

A fool, a rich fool,
Who thinks not of others.

A fool is a fool,
Don’t be a fool.

A fool can be married,
And have children.

She may have a home,
She will pulls it down:
With her own hands.

An enemy of her children,
No compassion for the young ones she has.

A fool is a fool,
Don’t be a fool,
That your labour might not be in vain.

A fool is always a fool,
Lifted up, crowned or
In a place of authority.

Don’t be a fool,
For the foolishness of
A fool will mar him.

Don’t be a fool,
’cause a fool will wail
Like a jackal
And mourn like an Ostrich.

Don’t be an Ostrich,
Whose wounds are
incurable.
And will lick her
finger forever.

Therefore,
Seek peace,
Seek rest,
Seek wisdom,
Seek knowledge,
Seek understanding.

Do not resign to fate,
Loss is not your lot.
Seek peace! Pursue peace!
Until your Jerusalem has peace.
