Story of a Broken Friendship


Have you ever lost a friend?

Well, listen to the story about an umbrella which had lost a very good friend and really took it to heart. This story has a happy ending though. 🙂

Sometimes, when friends leave it is only to make space for the new ones. Yet, the umbrella had to go through stages (sadness, anger,  grief and forgiveness) to be ready for the new friendship which was just around the corner.

Be encouraged by “The Story of a Broken Friendship” which I’ve recently shared with the “Live and Unplugged” audience in London. Thank you for having me, Live & Unplugged! You were a good friend. 😊

The video is a little shaky ☹, but the audio part is really good, so I hope you enjoy it. For the written version of the poem please CLICK RIGHT HERE if you like. B Encouraged 

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’.

Treasure in a Girl

.

She wants to be pleasing to her mum and dad

She feels like she’s not…, again and again

She’s their little girl, and although they love

Often times, they fail to express it well.  

.

She’s a beautiful girl, and a mighty force

Her name’s Wise and Strong.

There is wisdom hidden deep within her heart

It just needs to grow… to show…  

.

Her big eyes express pain, joy and faith

She believes… though she makes mistakes

She dances while counting during hide and seek

She’s so animated – her heart skips a beat!  

.

She begins the search for her mighty friend…

She finds. She begins to blaze trails…  

.

Daily, she leaves behind a positive trace,

She’s a mighty warrior serving in His Grace –

She learns to control her strength. She is strong.

Father smiles each time when she sings her song.
