Humility

Standard

Do I possess enough meekness?

What separates my humility from a weakness?

Where do I draw the line,

Or do I just say it is fine?

To be is an instruction from the divine.

 

Should I allow them to walk,

Over me?

Do I join them in the talks?

Which makes “free?”

Be I a hawk,

Or a bumble bee?

 

Do they see Jesus when looking at me?

No one reaches out to touch,

As I pass them by.

When I do pass, do they even see?

Or are they always in a rush,

And later they lie?

 

Sometimes you’ll be the invisible man

And not a popular among the fans.

 

What we want

Standard

Some things we get easy,

And others we have to fight for,

If the latter we appreciate it more.

 

We can’t always get what we want,

We might think we deserve to,

But we can’t always get the bigger part.

 

Just hang in there, just hold on tight,

Not always easy, don’t give up the fight,

Fight for what’s right and with all might,

Just hang in there, the end is in sight.

 

Nobody said the road will be easy,

Nobody promised it to be the best,

And what if it was,

Where would be the test?

 

Tests and Trials are there for us to bear,

And bear in mind,

Nobody said it would be fair. 

 

Just hang in, just hold on and just trust in His time.

South African SONA 2014

Standard

What will zuma bring to the table, 
Will he say that we are able?
Or that the economy is stable?
This year in parliament
Will it be blessings, Or lament?
Help us get through this again,
As they our taxes spend
As we wait for the state of the Nation Address
We wait and hear the head of congress.
His face seem so stressed, 
As he’s led us into economic distress.
They sing him praise right to his face,
But I just wish they’d cut to the chase.

Let me be meek

Standard

Not because it’s Friday, Saturday or even Sunday

But I want to know you everyday

Not for what I’ve done or who I am

But because YOU are the great I AM

It’s because of what you have done,

Let me praise you through the storm

 

I’m no member of a church,

But let me be a member of YOU

My soul in YOU should merge

Because I know YOUR love is true

 

Not for what I can do,

But I wish I can love like you do

 

On my own I am weak,

But you are mighty to save

Let me remain amongst the meek

But fight the good fight and be brave

 

I know I can count on you,

Because when I’m weak I am strong

And I know I’ll never walk alone

Even in the darkest, YOUR mercies are new

Banana republic or what?

Standard

With eyes on our country

Let’s vote in the monkeys

Like banana republic,

He does it again

First with the arms deal

And now it’s Nkandla

All zuma’s scandals before the ELECTION

 

But he’s got a small puppy that continues to bark

And Makes statements from out of the dark

I shudder to think of watch dog mantashe

He’s like j-z’s very own talashe

But let them beware, just ask mr gwe- there

What they do here’s

Clearly not clear

 

With no education

They run this rainbow nation

From one tree to one tree

He continues to mimic Mugabe

The one from Harare

No one can (re)move him, but fair is not fair

Wait and see

Standard

Who do I choose?

And why do I vote

How do I choose?

 

And where do I cross

Do I jump on the boat?

And cast my vote

 

This is the day

It’s the seventh of May

Do they give their power away?

 

Who will take the seats?

Is this an election to beat?

Who will admit defeat?

 

Will Nkandla lead to change?

Will the DA take the charge?

Will Julius and his fighters continue to march?

 

Where will the born frees be

Maybe this is not for me

We’ll have to wait and see

Nurturing Love

Standard

Nurturing Love.

Love comes with no terms – it comes with no conditions
Love comes with no but(s) or maybe(s) – it has no if(s), no formulae.
Love is enduring; love wants to let it be!
Love is timeless, it’s under no watch – love’s not time’s fool
No time can take it away, if it can – you have never loved!
Love is not bound by time – love is unconditional
Not here today and gone tomorrow
Look after it well for your love to grow
Love needs to be nurtured -
Or else it will stagnate – or even hibernate
One morning you might think it too late
Assurance advises to think it not -
Love never gives up; it is an ever-fixed mark
Plan the dates to be nice, even at a price to sacrifice
Do not end the romance – use it until the end
Love acquire and love require
Love acquire trust and love require sacrifice at times even a little compromise
They say compromise is wrong
But for the right reason, compromise can be extremely strong
If I be big and strong, but have no love, I will be alone and wrong
Be it that I have might and fame, but lacks love – I’d be just a sight of shame
If I give to the poor, or give my life – without love it means none
Love is so patient and love is so kind, it is so unselfish and so very fine
It does not boast of what it’d done, it does not want the best spot in the sun
Love is righteous, truthful, bearable, believing, hopeful
Love is humble – Love is to help one that might stumble
We should have faith, we should have hope, but best of all we should have love!
