ONE MORE LEAP

Like thunder jolts
The voice of the referee bolts
On your mark, get positioned, GO!
Athletes like wave, race towards the finish line
They move their fist ahead of them
Being propelled by the energy within

Phew! An athlete outruns the next
Then another and another and another
Steady and strong he seems
But for a while
Suddenly,his limbs fail him
As it is when a bowl is placed on a broomstick

In agony he groans
Leaning his mass on the earth beneath him
Seconds tick
As competitors seem to approach his spot
A spin of fear grasp his mind at the sight of another
Who seem to be ahead

In dogged determination
He supports his weight on his hand
Slowly but firmly, he pulls himself up again
Devoted to his dream
He continues the race

Getting ahead of the others
He stands less than a meter away from the finish line
His bones seem to crack
As his legs wobble underneath him

Like rushing waters
A flood of courage surges through him
In the might of a conqueror
He takes just one more leap
And he becom…

THIS TIME WILL PASS- poem

Silence embraces the still of the night
The gentle breeze races from east to west
The stars twinkle as the night lay still
A peep through the window
The sight of moving clouds are caught
They move like packages assigned to a port of delivery


In the dead of the night

I toss myself from left to right
Praying the night to roll by fast
The grief of my soul possesses my thought
The walls of my throat strain from groans
I gnash my teeth
Crying, yet quiet
So as to keep the dead of the night


I am tempted to wish for death
Because i think no one understands
I try to hear the words of the SPIRIT
But i hear woos and woes
A peep through the window
The sight of moving clouds are caught
As i stay my look on them for help
I hear the voice so still from within

"This time will pass
This time will pass
Day and night are constant so long as the earth endures
You can be sure to smile
When the clouds give way for the sun
Hold on my child", it says

A sense of peace fills my heart
When i remember tha…

THIS TIME WILL PASS-word

Sometimes, we go through experiences which makes us think that the "promises" don't match with the "purposes" of God for our lives.
Purpose is the thing that an event, process or activity is supposed to achieve. When God gives you a promise, he permits events to help achieve his intention for you.
Personally, i av been through times when confusion seem like the only emotion i could identify with. I suppose you've been there too. One thing is for sure, many lost their minds after they had the same experiences as you. Here, you are being able able to at least remember your name.
You might be going through some really dark hour, feeling so cold and alone.I may not be able to identify directly with your exact experiences but i know what it feels like to get to that point where counseling, sermon nor "speaking in tongues" just won't do.
Listen, i got a fresh news for you- THIS TIME WILL PASS. After the night comes the morning. Stay strong! Put your…
