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......

KWAHERI DADANGU CHANYA

Naanza kwa jina lake, mtukufu maulana Atupe rehema zake, atuongoze bayana Kila mtu ana yake, sikuye hawezi kana Kwaheri dadangu Chanya, pema mola akulaze Umeyatenda ni mengi, Agnesi hadi Loreto Chuoni pia kwa wingi, bila laiti majuto ‘Katupa furaha nyingi, yenye sifa ya uzito Kwaheri dadangu Chanya, pema mola akulaze Tabasamu yako tamu, kila mara hadi sasa Kicheko ja kilaamu, chenye sifa ya kisasa Maneno tamu hamamu, hekima bila siasa Kwaheri dadangu Chanya, pema mola akulaze Twakukumbukia wema, ulotenda ni kathiri Na mengi uliyosema, hatuwachi kukariri Mola akulaze pema, peponi akusitiri Kwaheri......

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......

MEN ALSO CRY

That night he came in unusually early, Never been that sober in a long time. Fear rushed through my weakly body, Just the other day i watched in silence, As the beast of a man in my Uncle, Held my brother from the back. From the back he thrust in and out, Moaning and groaning, Panting and sweating. Then kicked him to the floor. This night, It was my turn, My bad!   He came in through the front door, All smiles. I hated this sun of a gun, Turned us into......

GUILTY MADE INNOCENT

HALLELUJAH The song starts and my blood stirs; My choices are not always the greatest but I stand there like am the purest, pretending to grasp the heavens with my bare hands while in fact  I came  with  a bare heart. I feel so empty yet I look so full, convincing all that I am with Him but the truth is, I don’t know where I lost Him. And it goes on and on and on……… The guitar sounds and I swear I can feel Heaven and for a while I am......

IN YOUR EMBRACE

  When my plane cruises in dark skies And my ship sails across turbulent waves Beyond the control of my prudence Where technology gives no providence Fear remains unknown to me For in your embrace, I rest   When strong winds come Sweeping dark clouds across the skies Intense rains, flooding the result Washing to the oceans every living creature Firmly unto you I will hold For in your embrace, I rest   When intense heat in the core Producing strong seismic waves Shake the whole earth, disturbing all waters Shifting the......

WHAT WERE YOU LOOKING FOR ZACCHAEUS ?

Climbing that sycamore tree in haste As the crowd gathered to follow Him Up in a distance as there Jesus came So I wonder, I seek to understand What were you looking for Zacchaeus? Did you desire to see a prince or a miracle worker? What questions did thou have? What ran in mind? Probably you only sought to see what you heard? Only now you He sought; to drive and be with Atop that fig tree did you know He would notice you? Even now He seeks; up the tree, down......

PRAISE HER! SHE WHO FEARS THE LORD!

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord, she is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30 She is of impeccable birth For a daughter of the King she is Her antecedents are pure For she traces her heritage to the father of heavenly lights Her fear of God keeps her from trading the paths of wickedness She who fears the Lord is to be praised! She is of noble character Not only does she reflect the image of God But she also has inner beauty unmatchable With......

CAMPUS

Walking Along the pavements Past the beautiful lawns Well-tended flower gardens An indispensable effort Of the custodians of our environment Thinking Not, maybe a diversity of thoughts in my mind Observing Observation, the skill of an intellectual. 2. A wave, a passing storm on dry land The noise, of high heeled and flat heeled shoes Pounding perfectly on the ground Young lads and gents, scholars Eyes fixed to their destinations Hoping the lecture halls are not packed to capacity Minds thirsty of knowledge Yearning To quench their brains From the fountain of......

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......
