True Evangelism

“Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”

 Francis of Assis

You can’t tell from today’s smile,
that last night bore witness to tears,
and tomorrow withholds fears,
awaiting just the right moment to scream out “SURPRISE!
The truth can’t always be told from one’s eyes.
You can’t tell from a man’s chest,
that the heart it protects is broken.

Whether quiet or outspoken,

don’t you dare judge a person by just whatever you might see,
don’t assume to know a man,
till you’ve held his hand,
felt the tremble of one too weak to stand,
and if you’ve ever the chance to do this,
then do it like it was your life depending on finding that good 
Samaritan as one day it very well could be!

Bear in mind, YOU are the only Bible most folk will ever read!

So share your story.
let them see Job in you losing your job,
and David’s passion in your preferred way of Praising or in when your own sin tends to make you sob.
Let them see peace in you even when you’ve no understanding of how the situation will be resolved.

Let them say things like; “You’re way too nice!”
‘cos they’ll only be saying that ‘cos they know not to say; “You’re way too Christ like!”
cos they don’t know him but they at least know you,
and hopefully like man saw God when they saw Christ,
they’ll see the way, the truth, and the life,
when they see you.


Let minds flutter like butterflies,
let time pass like bullets fly,
let hands rest, and feet stay,
let words stay still on your tongue.
let your eyes rest upon me, 
let mine feast on your beauty,
my eyes grow fat from your excess,
yet your frame fits fragility with finesse,
let my heart be steady,
there’s no need for my blood to rush,
yet contemplation of you, leaves me giddy,
like I just suffered a blood rush.
Lord, Let your banner over us be love.
envelop us like a bad red rash,
If you’re a disease I’ve contracted you,
but like a good contract’s due,
I’m fully content and readily renew,
simply continue, no upgrade betters you,
so I blissfully remain on the same tariff,
baby, you made my pain perish,
and for that I love you.
God Bless You.

The Greatest love story ever told

This piece documents a love story in my opinion much better than twilight.
Hope you’re blessed.


Ear to Ear

The simplistic measurements of the grin I wear when He is near.

Which would be every second, of every minute, of every day, of every year,

The permanent location of the expression used in representation in proportion to the emotions that I bear.

Think laughing gas with no tears,

Think purity in no fear.


I count it Joy that He came to die,

Somehow Christians celebrate suicide!

Yet the death of One

Gave life to many

so was it tears of pain or joy that they cried?

In the presence of my enemies,

Hold up, don’t finish that sentence please,

I wish to request some explanation

cos that was plural right, not just one

and by any chance are they still living

cos I know your not gonna talk about preparing no table before me

Like we about to have a party

in the presence of my enemies

why anoint me into majesty

in the presence of my enemies

This really makes no sense to me

But I guess that’s why you ARE holy

What good is joy, If i can only get it when I’m happy

so in the presence of my enemies

He throws a massive party

for my initiation into majesty

I’m joyous cos He died for me

and took the cup of my iniquity

drank it’s judgment, wrath, Punishment, captivity

then filled mine up with salvation till it flowed overly

Healed, Redeemed, justified me

making me Righteous not just for me

but more for He

I’m free, with life of better quality,


and this is what brings Joy to me!
