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.
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’.
