My God reigns
My God reigns
He sends the rain so I have water to drink
He helps me to use my brain to think wisely
When I am in pain he is my main source of strength
He protects me from the forces of
He comforts me when I am in a state of sadness
Every morning he wakes me up with gladness in my heart
I put my faith in him because he is a great God and I know
He will take me to the place where he dwells.

You've done what you must
Still left in the dust
Who do you trust?
To break you
Then remake you
And tell me
Who will never forsake you?
Give you a breakthrough
Despite of all the things that you do
And been through?
And tell me, who
Will forgive your wrong
Rewrite your song
Then show you who you were all along?
So tell me
To whom do you belong?
Who do you bring along?
With you on this rugged road
The truth untold
Spoken from the old
Unto the new
And for me
The chosen few.

My pimple and I
A gentle strike I give your face
A glowing pink you bless the days
You are such a secret
A gallivanting joy that scraps my gloomy days
You are brave, you are a triumph
On my forehead
Your cuddle feels like glue on my eyelash
Don't leave me, I walk a blemished road
A path pelted by lies of unbiased love
Stay with me; let me see her true self
I will see her soul when she sees
Ten of you on my face.

He loves me still
Oh, how He loves me
He promised to keep, protect and guide
Oh, how He loves me
He says 'Child, I'll always be by your side'
He told me His will to follow
But I turned from His glory
Enticed by the world and in sin I wallowed
After promising to tell that wondrous story
I wandered off, taking the wrong path
And He didn't shut the door
That really blew my mind
He asked for my heart
He didn't ask for more
'Though your sin be as scarlet
They shall be as white as snow'
Those sacred words whispered in my ear
My Lord still loves me after all I've done
Oh, how He cares
He loves me when I fall beneath His will
He loves me when my vows I don't fulfil
He loves me
I just can't keep still
He loves me, He loves me
Oh, how He loves me still.

Old man's dream
I cant stand up anymore, much less walk
I miss the days when I was in my prime
The days when I used to walk, wine and dine
The days when I could get large and be in charge
But now I am like an old car that sits dead in the garage
A simple walk to the shady park I used to take for granted
Age got the better of me, yes, age has the advantage
I wish I could walk again, even if I feel a little pain
To explore many different avenues, roads, streets and lanes.

My death sentence was handed down to me in my mother's womb
My destiny was already planned, my demise was at hand
While you were ejected out of joy into laughter
I was rejected out of love into sadness
Growing up, I carved my own will, taking no one's pill
Believed in God, but my practice was a paradox
Consumed the things that were toxic
I was radical
I wanted to get all I could
Do all that I should.
There was still shortage, paying rent, not mortgage
I speak from my heart
How did I survive?
All I can say is only God could make it that way
I was forsaken in my first entrance among church folks
They called me crazy when I was used by God
It was just a test, God said, for me to be the best
I plunged through the rejection and the pain
I made my way by the black broken doors
My friends tip-toed from the circle of my existence
How could this be? They were all there under false pretence
They thought this was my end
But didn't know God was my friend
I'm a survivor in the lion's den.
