I woke up, looked in the mirror
and said to myself, ‘self, you are strong!’
When the lizard falls from a tree
it doesn’t feel sorry for itself,
it has evolved a thick skin;
And when you cut its tail
it grows backs.
I applied my make-up, hiding the dark circles
and smiled to myself, ‘hmn! that’s better!’
I decided to climb a mountain.
No mountain is high enough, to sever my joy.
the joy of the Lord is my strength!
I’ve decided to evolve.
And when my tail is cut
I’ll grow it back.

That’s innocence going,
Chaperoned by arm-twisting fear;
as once, trust was her chaperone
her confidence, entombed in love.
Her cries muffled, her radiance shadowed,
Her body conquered by a puppet.
Who can be held responsible?
Her honour, rip-wrenched from her,
her skin vandalised with soap and sponge;
her sleep invaded,
aspirations lost in life’s gridlock.
Leaving her guilty, defeated and unloved,
dying backbone of ardour,
hard-bitten ozone of ultra-violence,
misery and despair,
now her forte.
Wearing lustful shackles,
cold but familiar.
Who indeed can be held responsible?

hinge a psych of perfect ace,
dive swiftly from the cliff of contempt,
ditch your last Romeo’s golden embers;
aye, bury not those smiling eyes!
Remain livid, a luminous star;
nudge cognition, swat the vagabond;
time awaits you.
Dump the mud-clogged annex of pain,
Ashen, the disfigured face of grief!
How could you forget you have strong wings?
Fly, to new heights!

Although the Lord may not always spare us from troubles, he will certainly lead us through so we’re not overwhelmed by it just as He promised in Isaiah 43:2.
When YOU go through deep waters, I will be with YOU.
When YOU go through rivers of difficulty, YOU will not drown.
When YOU walk through the fire of oppression, YOU will not be burned up; the flames will not consume YOU. (NLT)
You just have to keep trusting in him WHOLEHEARTEDLY. Have you ever wondered why there’s 365 ‘fear not’s in the Bible? It’s because it’s your words of encouragement for every single day of the year. This has been prepared before you were born to carry you through every situation you’ve found yourself in, may have find yourself, or will find yourself in. He has promised and His WORD is true.
Take this to heart and have a lovely week!
Why did it hurt so much?
I think I have let you go;
The bruises have healed.
But, they still itch.
I’ve pawned your smile
And lost the slip.
You’ve pawned my pain
And I redeemed it.
‘Listen my child,’
my mum once told me,
‘you’re not alone in this world!
Don’t hold not onto the pain.’

I know everyone will be thinking it’s Eve’s fault, not so?
Looking at Genesis 3: 6, you will realize that Adam was with her when this incident took place. Remember she was created out of man (Genesis 2: 21) who was given dominion i.e. the power to rule. Continue reading So what if Adam ate the apple?
You can’t be of service without a CAUSE. Your cause will give rise to DESIRE which will birth the DETERMINATION to achieve your PURPOSE.
We are called to serve and service is continuous. Just like a business needs upgrades, so do you, as long as you live or exist on this earth.
Remember, you’re required to:
- Speak God’s word.
- Serve Him with all your have and are.
- Praise Him with your whole heart.
- Ask God today, to point you in the right direction.
May God give you strength as he promised in 1 Peter 4: 11.
Down the spiral steps!
It’s hard to find the light!
But I’m not an insolvent.
Maybe, for now, at least, for now.
Need to look up, need to de-clog the ghostly invaders of my dreams.

‘Eye on the sparrow’, those words has always fascinated me. Tiny birds practically insignificant, yes? Like a wasp, fly, or a mosquito?
I was heading home from church one night. As we drove through the quiet road I tilted my head for no reason in particular and saw that one of the street light was out. The light is set apart by a couple of yards. This position is to enable them illume that given space. They have the capacity to brighten that entire space. Continue reading I, Sparrow
We all love to be in control, of our circumstances, etc. When we fall deficient in our lives some of us retaliate my trying to control or be in control of other people’s lives. We are an embodiment of authority that’s why we hate being subjected to serve. We were given dominion but the devil’s deceit has made us misconstrue the real meaning of dominance which is sacrificial, generous and boundless to self, self and more self.
