Die Empty 

How can I be content….

How can I be content with this tide of desires, passions, dreams, likes and dislikes sweeping across my feeble heart??????

I wanna be superman so I can glide with her over the skies

I wanna be Shakespeare so that with my words I can pluck the strings of her heart.

I wanna be Usain Bolt so I can speed my way through school and receive the crown of a big pay cheque at the end of every month

I wanna be Messi so I can mess up the man city defence

I wanna be captain jack sparrow…well just because being captain Jack Sparrow sounds awesome

I have dreams…… With these dreams I lay awake at night and ponder 

But of later have been forced to reconsider

 I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer and given a month to live.

As you can imagine I wasn’t too keen on the idea, I mean die??? Death??me?? Who has got time to die at 21???

Slowly but steadily I have embraced my fate

I said slowly but yet steadily I have embraced my fate and this is why….

I have learnt that the grave is rich. Yes you heard me, the grave is full of wealth…..

Rich with inventions that never manifested. Great women that died prostitutes

Strong would be influential men that died alcoholics

Books never written, life transforming stories never told, records never produced, songs never sang

I will leave it open for you to complete the lines

 I almost realised to late that my dreams are not ahead of me but within me 

No one is remembered for how great they started the race but how they finished it.

So I wanna have a good finish.

 The irony is to die rich is to die empty!!!!!!

Empty because while you lived you wrote the songs within you.

Empty because you poured out your heart into the things that make a difference in society

Empty because  while you still could you smiled until your jaws hurt

Empty because you wrote the songs, performed the poems, baked the cakes, served the community.

Empty because you noticed the needy. Cried with the Brocken rebuilt Shattered  lives

You Played the game rather than being the spectator

Just like apostle Paul I wanna say I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race , I have kept the faith 

Don’t die because of Age, die because you are empty

Don’t die because of disease,die because you are empty and there is nothing left to give.

Therefore accept my smiles, accept my hugs because they represent the best of me

Accept my time accept my rebuke and my apologies, they are my wealth  

Accept my words my concern my counsel, they represent the God in me

Accept my money my food  my love they represent my gratitude 

Let this be my legacy.So to die empty is the plan 


Inspired by Thomas that lost his battle with Cancer.

February 9 True Rest

What's The Good Word?

Image by Kyle Wright Image by Kyle Wright

Exodus 29:1-30:10;  Matthew 26:14-46;  Psalm 31:19-24;  Proverbs 8:14-26

“Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemene, and he said to them, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray”.  And taking with him, Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be very sorrowful.  Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death.  Remain here and watch with me…

And he came to his disciples and found them sleeping…

And he came to them again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy…

Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on.  See the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.”

Matthew 26:36-46

To Look At Me ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~What God Sees ~ DoorPost Verses.com ~

To look at me,
you’d think I was sweet
the nicest person . . .
you could ever meet.

I always have a smile,
never wear a frown
that is until . . .
no one else is around.

Unless, of course,
you live with me
then my sourness
I know you’d see.

That’s when I can be,
oh, so very irritated . . .
for the tiniest of things
can get me, so agitated.

Any one would think,
frustration was my name
as it doesn’t take much . . .
for me, to be inflamed.

Lord, wherever I go,
remind me You’re there too
so my attitude . . .
can reflect more of You!


1 Samuel 16:7

“But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:

for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;

Do not tire

Do not tire of doing good
Do not be too tired to worship
Because God is living and true

In good or bad, worship The Lord
Whether sick or sad
You will not be over drawn
Because God renews your strength

Don’t give up the hope
But cling to the truth
Stay committed to the journey
Hold fast His word

Nothing will shake you
If you hide in The Lord
Since God is your defender

God is sovereign
over all that concerns you
So till the end of days
God will be your all in all.

Psalm 125:2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem. So The Lord surrounds His people both now and forevermore

99th time

It’s the 99th time,
and am still trying
I thought I was able,
Felt I could do it
Could it be that it’s

My veins expand and
contract rhythmically
as if in agreement
yet that still….
small voice remains,
‘It has all been done before
And that is not about to change’

Jesus did it all on the cross
And that is the plain reality.
So I wrestle with myself until
I embrace that reality,
Till I make it my own and
Keep perusing, keep believing

Jesus makes all things new
And issues new grace daily
I guess that is a clue that
I should start afresh everyday
To pursue life in Him afresh daily
use Up the grace for the day
So when my flesh gets in the way today and am down low,
Satan don’t rejoice!!!

Be rest assured tomorrow
the battle begins afresh
I can do all things through
Christ my saviour……..
So that is the plan
Till the day when my Lord
will conquer all.

Lamentations: 3:22-23
22 The steadfast love of The Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to and end
23 They are new every morning great is your faithfulness.

Strength come

Strength come
keep me on my feet
My knees are feeble
and want to give way

Strength come
My hands are loosing
their grip

Strength come
My light is flickering to
the blowing wind

Strength come
My eyes are burning
with tears

Strength come
My bones are stiff and
My mind is wandering to
Places my feet can’t take me

Strength come
I am holding onto you
Strength come

Hebrews 12:12-13
12 Therefore take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your knees
13 Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.

I tend to look at the bigger picture in most aspects of life, or atleast I try.

I know life is a collection of moments and we tend to hold on for as long

as we can on those moments that we consider fulfilling

But some of the moments we hold onto are not those that we have found much pleasure but also hurt and pain.

Some times you wish for selective memory, the ability to remember only what is good and pleasurable, but it often doesn’t work quite like that.

So I tend to look at the bigger picture of the significance of the moments I experience

Whether bad or good, I zoom out of my pleasure and hurt alike and consider their over all impact on all aspects of my life and the life of those around me.

There is more to life than this moment or the next moment and the next.

On the grand scheme of things we are all humans trying to make sense of our surroundings.

Having different experiences, skin colours, backgrounds etc may change the moments we encounter but can not change the bigger picture.

We are all God’s creation and He is the bigger picture.

Incase you are wondering what in the world the bigger picture means,

its quite simple, it means something ever constant, not changed by time or distance

not swayed by emotions, error or bad judgement.

Something that is forever true and not subjective or relative to anything.

That ladies and gentlemen is only God.

Heb 13:8

A Farmer of Words



I want to be a farmer of words
I want to nurture words
I want to plant them in good soil
Cultivate them
Grow them until mature
Make them fruitful
Pick them and harvest them
Squeeze out their nutritious juices
Prepare them deliciously
Give them to those in need of
A good word

I want to begin a culture of
Word husbandry.

I am weary of being weary

Tired of being tired……

I wanna fly to a place so far

ohh better still vanish in air

Solitude hugs my soul and

discontentment whispers in my ears

I wonder in the wilderness

like a man without a vision

like a son without a father

or worse still like a widow

without children of her own

My mind feels like an empty room

yet there is no room for a new idea

so I dance to the music of my aching heart

and rock myself to sleep with  hope

to wake up to a better world.
