You don’t choose

The eyes and the heart sees different

you don’t know the outcome of everything

you don’t guess right all the time

you don’t choose who you fall inlove with

 

time changes

Time changes everything

we wait, we gain knowledge and experience

we’re filled with anxiety for the unpredictable future

but with time events unfolds

i’m certain there’s more to come yet to be seen

when i see what wonders time does, i stopped getting in it’s way

i’ve learnt that things we can’t change can be left

to time to take it’s full course, TIME inexcusably fills the space

Between what happens now and what unfolds then.

 

Dreams to Reality

My heart is sore, as i lay down: exhausted

I close my eyes in a bid to sleep, an escape from reality

A vision is shown to me

the hidden things to come to being, revealed

things lacking soon to be in abundance

A blessing, an answer to prayer

I watched in awe, mouth agape

suddenly awake, back to the real once again

this time with hope, relief and expectation

which gladens my heart.

 

Back in time

in the night

under the moonlight

with a little brightness from lampstand

a little light, a little darkness

in a still, peaceful and quiet atmosphere

i digest the contents of my novel with satisfaction

a permanent smile on my lips

after all chaos and noises of each day

i find my peace on the floor at the corner of my bed

next to the window where the cool wind lets itself in

i’m alone with myself for the next 9 hours

in my own world free to do whatever i please.

oh how i cherish those times…

 

Thank you Lord

Thank you lord for this year, thank you for the events that unfolded (good and bad). Thank you for the control you had over everything, so that at the end of each day we could say thanks.

Thank you for the peace we have, thank you for removing our fears, making them unreal. Thank you for your presence that walks with us every now and then, keeping us secure in the edge you built.

Thank you for your banner over us is love, thank you for this love is unconditional, thank you for it’s a love from a perfect father to an inperfect child, which surpases everything we could ever ask for.

Thank you for the things we have, thank you because they were blessings given freely  from you, thank you for the things we don’t have that we ask for, because your word said, in everything give thanks.

Waiting!

How i wait on the lord to direct my path

i can’t see beyond my knowledge even when i try

life with God includes the wait as  time varies according to his will

I  ask myself if a God who waits patiently for me should not be waited for in return

in this words lies my hope  that those who put their trust in God will never be disappointed

while i wait with the passing of time He charges the angels concerning my cause

though the evidence is wanting my faith is put to work

He saves the best for the last like the miracle of the wine in cannan

He gives comfort during the wait with assurance of hope

Daily Prompt: Anticipation

via Daily Prompt: Anticipation

As the days go by i watch, in  anticipation,

of the day my  fantasies  become real

when i’ll read the truth in your eyes

that day is no where near, i think in despair

 

My  need drives my hope, i’m uncertain, if it be a need or want

i’d wait till ever if need be

true love comes once  a lifetime

and others a makeshift

 

when love calls, it calls right.

of this i’d rather be ready when it does

lessons still  to be learnt, experience still to be gained

of this i’ll occupy myself till the time comes.
