See You in Tomorrow.

.

I admit. I have made so many mistakes

I have twisted my life with my twisted ways

.

I did things before they should have been done

I run when I should have sat. I sat when I should have run.

.

There’s no way to turn back the hands of time

What is done already cannot be undone…

Till it can.

.

So, stop dragging me through yesterdays

The damage is done, but I’m not done yet

.

It is not too late – these are only delays

Did I tell you I knew the Maker of Days?

.

You too need to focus on how far you have come

And stop crying about how far you must go, so…

.

If you don’t plan to carry on – stay out of my way

Your fears have been slowly poisoning my faith!

.

There’s too much at stake. l must walk away…

Doubts can only take us back to our yesterday

.

See You in Tomorrow.

I Pray that I Meet You There.

Better, Faster, Stronger

There’s a type of pain that makes you cry

You might even feel like you’re going to die…

.

You’re looking for help, but there is no point

You’re feeling a pain no one felt before….

And the ones that felt it cannot give a hand

They’re too busy fighting their own type of pain

.

So,

Your mouth is now widely shut, but

Your eyes must be open – looking up…

There is God!

.

Suddenly,

You become better, faster, smarter & stronger

Your mind is much clearer, your body lasts longer

.Finally, you may rest… Finally!

.

And after the rest…

There comes yet another ‘friendly’ type of pain

Your growth must continue. It must start yet again ♥

.

She is Not Her Past


Here she comes with strong legs,

Strong arms & her tough-skinned hands

Though they’ve never seen a gym…

Her brown eyes –

Too scared to look into their brown eyes

.

She’s assumed to be a mother of many

Shared by way too many, in her past

They assume & assume

With no courage to ask

“What’s your name?”

.

They have a box ready for her

They have a spot called ‘her place’

They say, “remember your rights”

They mean limits & lies

.

Why must she feel sad & shamed?

She knows she knows better, today

She knows where from & where to

She knows what’s false & what’s true

.

Her story is being written still

As we speak…

Choices of today are made

The future is on the way

.

It is a fight for her family’s life

And for faith – hers and theirs

It’s a fight for Love…

 ‘Let them think’ she thinks

‘I’ll stand firm within Him’

.

Their silence & gaze are loud,

But they are too dark

To outshine her light

To confine her mind

 In their own confines

.

“We will make it!” She says

‘Right in front of their eyes’.

Story of a Broken Friendship


umbrella and girl

Once upon a time, a fine umbrella was left behind

It happened so fast, a man jumped on his train

Forgetting his fine umbrella

That had sheltered him from the rain…

.

Umbrella laid motionless on the station’s bench

Frightened it would be picked up & thrown in a trench

It was closed, no longer open, very very sad –

Unable to understand why life got so bad

.

It remembered the early days of flaunting its price tag

 “Wait! You have forgotten me! I’m not in your bag!”

.

Questions and a guessing game forced it to contend

Yes, okay – during a strong wind I do tend to bend,

but I have been good to you. I am a good friend?

Could you please forgive me? I’m sorry I bend 😦

.

Confused, emotionally drained,

Silence feels so loud…

The umbrella bursts in tears

Whilst its sadness turns to wrath

.

“I’ve been there for years & lasted through many a storm!

Why have you abandoned me?! Did I not conform?

Will you now exchange me for a friend that’s fake?!

You know how they are – tiny winds & they break!”

.

The umbrella’s heart was broken & needed to mend,

so it wrote a ‘goodbye’ letter never to be sent:

.

‘Though I’m truly sorry our love had to end

Thank you for our time together

You were a good friend

I pray the Sun shines

When you’re off that train

I pray you are not alone at the time of rain

I wish you another faithful and a solid friend

One that wouldn’t break, although it might bend’

.

The end.

.

Oh wait, wait, not yet…

.

A girl sits down on the bench to wait for her train

She looks up & thinks, ‘No doubt, it will rain.’

She picks the umbrella up, with joy in her eyes

She opens it up & flaunts it in front of the skies

 ‘I’m back in the game!’ The umbrella thinks & smiles. 😊
