    If you give up
    The shadows will show up
    And the light you should be shining
    Will be put out b your crying

    Never give up!
    Shout out to hope
    Whats up?!

    And May our souls not be lost on its journey home
    because we were searching for rent
    in a condemned world

    Someday
    The rain will hit me
    And I will not
    Feel it
    People will walk on me
    And I will not
    Get hurt
    The door will be closed in my face
    And I wouldn't care
    Not because I returned to dust
    But because I became light!

    Lockdown

    ...Was God redeeming time
    Because the days are evil...

    Did you seek forgiveness
    From your once loved ones
    Did you look in to
    forgiving yourself
    Did take that retreat to
    purge yourself of bitterness
    Did you find out why you
    are still mad at the dead
    Did you realise that
    Justifying your sin is devilish
    Did you think about purpose
    And did you give yourself to prayer
    Did you take the meditation medication
    Did you close your eyes in silence and listen to things that speak without moving lips
    Did you have a change of heart?
    Or did you trade redeemed Time for entertainment and Tik-tok

    Time;
    She heals nature
    and seals the sore on stems
    She changes the seasons
    and brings beauty to earth
    She replenishes the oceans
    and make them better...

    But when it comes to us,
    She just passes by
    She seems to be against us;
    she doesn't heal us, or change us or make things better for us

    She only gives us chance to be consistent and intentional
    Then we will heal, then we will replenish, then we will be better

    Dear young man,
    The older you grow
    The better you'll understand what it is to walk in your fathers shoes

    Do something different this father's day
    Whatever hurt
    Whatever pain
    Whatever anger
    That you hold against your father
    Forgive him, pray a heart of love towards him
    Let of caged rage toward him for failing you
    Do this for the love of God
    Do this for your children
    And if you can't think of God or your children, how about doing it
    for the peace of your own soul!
    You may never understand your father's plight
    But do not hold on to where he failed
    If you believe you know better, then be better
    Forgive and heal...
    Happy Father's Day

    Dear papa,

    I celebrate you daily
    Can I even help it;
    Walking around looking like
    a female version of you?
    You were my first cheerleader
    Cheering me on till I won my first race
    With a prize of existence
    You carried me inside of you first
    And gave me these small eyes and wide smile
    Suffice it to say, you were one fine man!
    Papa, I honour for being there
    Some leave because being it can be very inconvenient
    But that was never an option for you
    It was 'till death do us part'
    and so it was;
    But till meet again
    I'll keep sharpening and using the tools you gave me...

    Happy Father's Day!

    There is a man who lives
    Far far far far away
    And all I need he gives
    Yesterday till today
    This man that lives far away
    Cares more for me than I can say
    Someday he'll come
    And take me home
    Where hearts don't beat
    But the love's so sweet

    Him:
    Imagine we were all blind,
    dumb and deaf
    And we could only
    communicate through
    pure love for one another
    And could not fake it...

    Me:
    That's a poisonous imagination,
    Yes, poison is real,
    but I just won't drink it.
    I won't

    It's easy for a person who challenges you to be better to become an enemy when your heart is not right...
    No one knows it all...
    Be humble
    Learn
    Grow
    It's the best thing you can do for your soul if you truly want to serve!
