Forgive Me My Friend
Forgive me my friend of the wrongs
I have done you
Put them behind you for heaven sake
And let us reason for a while
Look in my face
I know you can
Don't let the devil tell you you
That is his plan to keep us apart
Forgiving each other is God's delight
Don't be too stubborn
Don't be too hard
Come let us face the task that is so
hard for you to tackle
Let us begin and do it
To forgive me my friend is not that
you are weak
It is the beginning of healing the heart
From heartache that will cause you to suffer great pain
God will forgive you if you forgive
It is the first step to a new start
If you truly forgive when you are
Your heart will be glad
Your burden will be light
If you don't forgive
You are killing yourself
And you will live in torment
for the rest of your life
V. O. Ricketts
A Man of Dreams
Unapologetic, without remorse
A man of dreams I am
Masculinity, ingenuity, seeking opportunity
A man of purpose and discourse.
Butter toffee palms to caress a woman
I am highly favoured and well flavoured
A man with two hands to never hit a woman.
My wealth of brewing thoughts percolates class
The taste of a man that appeals to a woman
I will not choke on society's bitter taste in ideologies
With lips that will not kiss the posterior of society.
Upon this land whereas my young shall birth
Chiselled beneath my chest weights respect
Extraordinary how my feet court the earth.
I am a man and my journey has begun
My progress is not stitched in a suit
But sewn in vision, determination and action.
If you have breath, if you have life
Then be a man living a legendary life
A man of dreams I am.
Sandre O. Lowers
"What a friend we have in Jesus
ALL our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything, ... everything to the Lord in Prayer"
if it helps
if it hurts and can't heal
the hand of the surgeon
does not wound,
diseases instead are
"faithful are the wounds of a "friend"
but deceitful the kisses of an enemy"
time longer than rope
but don't tie too easily that noose
shift before it's too late
if the coast is clear
Battle of the Mind
Why is this doubt lingering within my heart?
Surely I know that Christ died on the cross
When I know that this world we will depart
I ponder and think back on the millions I have lost.
Tears begin to well up in my eyes
And as the sweet gospel music echoes in the air
I lift my head and look to the skies
And search my heart and know He is near.
That old satan is a liar from the pit of hell
I remembered the miracles and the angels above
Surely there is a God and I will tell
All the breakthroughs I had from the Saviour.
