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.

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’.
