Keep Your Friends Closer - poem (27.03.2011)
“We are not enemies, but friends.
We must not be enemies.
Though passion may have strained,
it must not break the bonds of our affection.” - Abraham Lincoln
We are all together in this.
We are together, all one family.
It is the closeness that we share
that will keep us tightly compacted together.
One unit, one body, for all we have is each other.
Although it may not seem a lot
the truth is, it is greater than anything else in this world.
For we come from an even greater family in another realm.
So let us join hands, and hold on with our dear lives.
With all of our strength.
Because it is with the help of each other that we will survive
This mean, nasty, cruel world in which we live in.
The one that is under the evil doers spell.
The reason why so many of us are destined to hell.
But when we depart from each other
and fight like enemies
we cause ourselves to fall, like Adam and Eve in Genesis.
When we have world wars
and refuse to help our brothers and sisters
the distance between us becomes greater
And we never find peace
Because we have shunned peace away
and so we are left alone and astray
This is why we must not be enemies, but friends.
When we are friends, life becomes easier to bear
And no more will we have to cry tears.
Even when trouble comes our way
andthough passion may have strained
If we are close, surely we can still maintain?
That everlasting love between us all
For we shall not let the bad things break the bonds of our affection
And instead, continue on with devotion and determination.
So march forth, oh yeah people
Into a world named Zion,
And carry on I tell you, carry on.
Into a world full of hope and promises which can never be broken
Because they were made by an unbreakable person.
Beauty - poem 08.2011
Beauty is more than what the world perceives, but we were made to believe what we see on tv. Mankind failed when it tried to create perfect, tried to rebirth it, for an ungodly purpose. We were told that if u do ur hair like this, put on ur make up like that, u would be accepted into the popular crowd. If you ate less calories, tried the atkins version of ‘dieting’, to the point of even starving, you wouldn’t be labelled as a ‘fatty’. But I don’t believe beauty is what we all see, I believe it is the unique qualities of a human being. The way a person smiles, the twinkle in their eyes, the lovely words that may come out of their mouths. Its that rare moment as you look at a person who you wouldn’t label as ‘conventional’, and realise the blessing that God has placed before you. As it clicks in ur heart, and ur lost for words, ur so startled, you even wonder if this is even possible. Its not only the physical we should find appealing, as the personality is the the greatest quality of a person. So strong, so powerful, it could transform them into the unimaginable. Stop looking at the worlds definition of beautiful and turn to the Bible. ‘You are beautifully and wonderfully made..’, unlike the world that says a big bum, breasts, huge muscles, light european face, and that’s it, ur saved. Wrong. I could go on and on about the faults of the world, but ill stop here, and let you think about it for yourself.
