LIFE

Life is fragile, Handle it in prayer. Prayer is to the soul As breathing is to the living; Much prayer much power, Little prayer little power, No prayer no power.   We can never give much For Him who sacrificed all. Every temptation, An opportunity to run to God. He will never withhold anything, Beneficial to you. Trust in Him always.   God’s love is like a stream, Which withstands seasons, A fountain that never runs dry, And a sun that never sets. His love is limitless. Abide in him, And he......

THE BRIGHT LIGHT

Far beneath the mountains Glee a huge golden plantain Beautiful she is like bonny lass In melodies and coo of merry of the dawn The tiny twilights and the stars go home As the queen shies away Dice in size she dims Her way to go home too The queen has traced out her dark kingdom It is day time The cock crows The king reins and the heat races high It is noon and the climax of his prowess But a war is being bred Slowly the clouds take over the......

LEANING ON JESUS

LEANING ON JESUS     It took Jesus for us to be saved Worthy for us to lean on Christ No Christ no hope All other ground is sinking sand Christ is the only foundation Therefore, lean on Jesus.   The journey is rough and weary Jesus is thine strength In life when battles wear you out You will find Christ; your comforter Therefore, lean on Jesus.   In times of faults and failure Christ forgives you When friends forsake you Christ sticks closer than a brother When trials seem to overcome......

THE FACE OF GOD

I saw the face of God In the streets of Nairobi He had a big smile I could see the last Tooth What a smile that was! He was genuinely happy He said “thank you” I smiled back I forced that smile Because my heart sunk I couldn’t stop feeling Feeling that what I gave him Wasn’t worth all that appreciation I should’ve given more I should’ve given it all For that big smile The smile of God Maybe next time I’ll give more than that bread I’ll give him clothes and......

POETRY: VANITY OF THE WORLDLY THINGS

As he said vanity, so vain say I Oh! Vanity, o vain all under sky; Where is the man can say, Lo, I have found a brittle earth a consolation sound?   What isn’t in honor to be set high? No, the like beast and sons of men shall die, And while they live, how often do they turn their fate: He’s now a captive that was king of late. What isn’t in wealth great treasures to obtain?   No, that’s but labor, anxious care and pain; He heaps up riches, and......

How is a Leader in Christ?

Like a flock of sheep under the guidance of a shepherd, Are God’s people, a congregation- like a herd, Two or more together, requires one a leader, In spirituality and faithfulness, word of God; a reader, Steering the wheel informed with knowledge   Like Jeremiah; identified and chosen before birth, By the blood of Jesus, separated from God’s wrath, Like Joshua; guided by God’s command, Running purposefully, eyes fixed on the reward, Qualified before existence, filled with God’s spirit   Day in day out is faced with a fresh challenge, Like laborers......

INDISPENSABLE MAN…author unknown

Sometime when you’re feeling important; Sometime when your ego’s in bloom; Sometime when you take for granted, You’re the best qualified in the room. Sometime when you feel that your going Would leave an unfillable hole; Just follow this simple instruction, And see how it humbles your soul. Take a bucket and fill it with water, Put your hand in it up to the wrist; Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining, Is a measure of how you’ll be missed. You may splash all you please when you enter, You can......

Cut To The Bone***Lucy Mwai

Colleen, meticulously made, the beauty of the world, With a therapeutic smile, That brings life.   Colleen, As colorful as the rainbow, From man, Your descend.   Colleen, Why did you let in devourers into the garden of grapes, to squeeze to the last drip, off the delicacy?   Colleen, now the vineyard dry, scorched as a farm in famine the famine for life laying desolate, the scar eternal.   Colleen, the ants have started to creep, the mad man has his way but with no food to eat, they die and......

FOR THE GREATER GLORY….by Ken Sigodo

Posted on July 28, 2014 by luciemwai When the day comes And the voices become hoarse With dirges and sad chorus They announce my pass They cry and moan They sadden and frown That too soon am gone With the wind away blown They recall and speak The deeds that in my life peak And on the low ones quick Coz like any man sometime was weak I lived, yes I lived Like it was my last day I believed Right and wrong I sieved To commit only the good deed I......

Six humans…..By Jackline Waitherero

Six humans trapped by happenstance, In black and bitter cold, Each possessed a stick of wood, or so the story is told. Their dying fire in need of wood, The first woman held hers back, For the faces around the fire, She noticed one black. The next man looking across the way, Saw one not of his church, And couldn’t bring himself to give, The fire his stick of birch. The third man sat in tattered clothes, He gave his coat a hitch, Why should his log be put to use, To......

DarK WorlD….

It’s so close to us In the vicinity around us Hovering all over us Day and night Come rain, come sunshine. Some find it hard to believe Others see it in their dreams Others talk about it in hushed tones It’s here with us, more than ever. I thought demons were a fairy tale That a human can turn into an animal! To many; A traditional story around the fire place To scare children from going to the jungle Till I came across them Inhabiting an innocent child’s body So violent, Causing......

..THE ENEMY..

The alarm alarmed, The noise so loud, With rage I worn, That was a short one. The head I bowed, To cry my mind, But i was so away, There was an enemy. I had a lot to say, Had a petition to sigh, An intercession to sight, An Name to exalt. But there was an enemy: the devil. BEWARE!!!!!!...
