A lonely soul

Everyday I see someone like me.

And everyday I wake passed you.

Your always alone.

 

When I see you, I stir at you.

My eyes meet your soul.

I can see your heart.

I can feel your loneliness,

It causes my skin to  quiver.

 

Today I walked passed you.

And this time, I saw me in you.

I paused for a minute,

And walked towards you.

 

Looking for any excuse in the world,

To take away some of the loneliness.

Hi… I said with a smile.

And my smile made you smile.

Joy entered your bones.

And loneliness fled the scene.

And a beautiful conversation started.

Little eagle

IMG_7976set free, made alive.

cage opened wide so

I could fly out the cage

like an eagle longing

to go home.

 

The sky is it’s home.

where it feels the wind

go through it body.

and the higher it soars

The more at home it feels

 

I flew to close to ground

while i was meant for the sky

My wings were clipped

by self condemnation.

 

But this little eagle was set

free and told to live life to

the fullest in freedom

Void

I don’t feel okay.
okay.
It’s okay to not be okay.
My light dimmed in lightest day.
Today is dark, as day become void.
No space in this vacuum of life.
joy, happiness sucked away in a bling.
day turned to night.
The clouds over shadow my my inner being.
light overcast by a storm and quenched.
It’s cause I do not know.
It’s origin I do not know.
But what I do know is what i can feel it.
It’s okay not to be okay.

Me in You

your are in me and I in you.

when I am lost, one look at you.

I find myself in you,

you are my map home, you are home.

Complete I am, when i’m with you

 

when I thirst, I drink from  the fountains of your love.

I’m in love with loving you.

Like a drunken man who let go of the bottle.

Like a baby wails for his mom.

as much as or even more than I love my life.

I LOVE YOU

Reflection

fefa0d96-ea85-4264-98d0-6d39599eea4f

I am brunette

I am beautiful yet gorgeous.

And I am always on point.

 

Tall long legs,

Blue eyes.

Slim waist

Evenly toned skin.

 

Every day I face the mirror

It’s reflects truth of

How I look?

It tells me what works,

And what doesn’t

 

Its opinion is non bias.

10 min in day.

It judges my look.

And hands me the final vote.

 

When I leave Mirrors reflection

I am own my own.

Unable to view self (me).

I reflect back on what mirror showed me earlier.

 

I don’t forget my image,

I took a snap shot and

Stored into my memory.

Memories remind me of my beauty.

 

Mirror reveals.

Mirror tells truth.

Except the hearts reflection.

And how fare the heart?

Been thinking on What James said in James 1:24-26. We as people use mirrors every single day from brushing our teeth to calming our hair and for the ladies who use the mirror to do makeup. After all is done with we leave the mirror knowing that we look okay. You definitely won’t forget how you look. Like the way we look at ourselves in the morning we should look at it like the Bible, not just seeing it or browsing through it but be doers of what it says.

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

I love women and the role the play in society. I love the strength and the unconditional love they have to overcome trials and obstacles, which I have seen from my own mom and the friends I have around me. Like people MJ, Dineo, Matevhu, Tshili and others. Women should be appreciated and valued more. I appreciate you guys, lots of love.

My favourite food

Food, Food, Food.

Food is so delicious.

My mouth becomes watery.

I drool at the sight of food.

 

I know all kinds of food.

Food that taste good

Food that taste amazing

And the food that taste terrible.

 

Oh Food, Food, Food.

It comes in all shapes and sizes.

It lifts you up when you’re down.

It comforts you when you’re alone.

But we have so much to choose from.

 

Do I go with chocolate or ice- cream?

Steak or ribs?

Chicken or beef stew?

Vegetables or fruits?

Pap or rice?

 

We all have favourites.

Favourite this!

A favourite that!

A favourite person!

 

Favouritism is all and well.

Except people favour.

Favour discriminates people.

Favour shows prejudice.

 

 

Having favourites made me a judge.

People put on the stand.

Choice put in my hands

Who I like and who I don’t.

My choice has consequences.

Whom shall I choose?

The answer is neither!

This was inspired by the book of James in the 2nd chapter, where Paul speaks of favouritism. He says that we as Christians should not show favouritism to anyone be it the rich or the poor. A comparison of this would be between, high politician and an everyday working class person. To bring it down to our levels in today’s world, we all have our favourite people. And we would say “this or that person is my favourite person” to others. I know I have. I’m guilty as charged. And it’s okay to have close friends or even best friends but we should be objective when it comes to making decisions. Even if it means choosing between the side of your best friend and someone you barely know. Favouritism in the church of Christ can cause division. Many people have been hurt in their families by the statements that parents make when they say “this is my favourite child” in a family which has more than one child. We don’t want that. Let’s leave the Judge which is Christ to judge not us, because we are definitely not qualified.

 

James 2:1-13

The power behind a story

When I read story of man of faith and all the obstacles they went through but never doubted God. It’s so inspiring and amazing . People like Joshua who went into war and God gave him what he promised. Joseph who was sold into slavery but he never wavered in his faith. Not once does it say God why have you done this to me, he turns and worship God through his situation. Through his faith in God, God provided for him in his worst and he prospered. David who defeated a loin and a bear having complete trust in God.

But in this day and age, we doubt and our faith is not strong the situation we face and the things we have seen affect us and may make us doubt. We may have the Holy Spirit who guides us all into truth but we would than say it was not him or such excuses. In times like this we need to press deeper and look at what the Word of God says and look at the examples that remind us of Gods faithfulness and promises.

Stories that were written, where written for especially me and you. To give us hope. To lift up our faith. To move from the impossible to the possible.

A while back I read to story of Joshua and that did something to me on the inside it showed me that despite my circumstances I don’t have to lose hope. Word give hope and reading a simple story can be life changing. Read a something that’s good for you and brings value to your life.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

‭‭John‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭NKJV‬

Patience

I was never be the one to be patient
I hate long queues that eat my time
Like I got nothing better to do.

 

It’s long been said be patient,
I hope I have one bone of patience
somewhere in my whole body.
In my wait I will imagine myself
In the comfort of my home relaxing.

 

On the other hand who ever dead
Of being patient? No one. I guess being
patience is just a part of life. We have all been there

and not always liked it unless you disagree.

 

If maybe there could be an award or prices given out for being patient.
The wait would so be worth it. Hopefully patience will one day very soon, shape my character and make be a more patient person. It sure would solve a lot more masses that I normally would have caused.

Venting-Blowing off steam

We all need to vent to blow off some steam. Life is not always easy and is full of complication, challenges and problems that we all have to face everyday.

A good friend of mine one said to me “Kindness it does not always mean when I say something to you, I want advice or the works but just to get something of my chest”. Than it hit me we all need that be it writing on a blank page your deepest raw emotions or be it painting art work that depicts your truest self .

For many of us we have our friends. Well that what there are there for right. But things never turn out the way you want , if we can get them to keep quite a bit more and listen or agree with what you say at that time no matter how wrong you where.

If you keep something long enough on the inside it will eventually explode and you would not want that happening in the wrong place. So when you feel the kettle is reaching boiling point. It about time to find that person to vent too, if that fails pic up a pen and just write or screaming could work for you too. You never know.

How do you vent ?
