make your heart splash
but doesn’t alter the configuration of your face.
It’s like a dismemberment of you
with one hand in the future
and the other in the past.
In effect they dance
as you lose your breath
when you see the mammoth image
of the moon striking the cold night.
Wind’s cold embrace
cracked lips, soft ears and nose
blossoms slowly falling.
Sleek and confident that yielded from ashes
paint shades on the forehead, and cheeks,
and don’t let the silhouettes scare you
because when you meet their souls, they tremble.
I learnt that it’s only as big as you let yourself believe;
the weight of mountains,
the magnitude of your legs shaking on high ropes
and the category of storms you’re soaring in.
I also proved the hypothesis
of the relationship between competency and perception,
in effect it shifts from acute to straight angle
as your goals change when your drive
generates potent energy
because most of your help comes from above.
As you pray that He’ll carry you,
and your family never stops praying about you,
and you’re thankful for them because they even call you every time
you have an exam in the morning.
Not prone to occur,
and is as a result of a blow.
These are elements of s 23 (1) (a) willed acts

“I believe in you”

I fell so short of being worthy of those words.
So I can only thank my Heavenly Father in heaven
for blessing me with such wonderful parents
that support me and love me.
To bring back fire in these eyes

I rode back home at 3:30 am
saying God, you opened this door for me
even when I was too small-minded to believe.
So as I keep soaring to newer higher levels,
I know with certainty that it’s You,
and when I get there
it will be a testament to Your goodness,
and nothing to do with me,
because all I am is a tiny vessel on this speck of a planet,
who can’t see beyond walls of sticky notes, calendars,
and a messy desk with folders and papers everywhere.
As I sit here reflecting,
I’m again taken aback at how limited
our foresight is as ordinary persons.
This only shows how All-Knowing
powerful, and merciful God is.
