Benjoy’s Corner X-10: Define You

If you are trying to shield yourself from what people

Will think or may say about your life’s journey…

Alas, it is nothing but an exercise in futility.

For we have no control over their actions or speech.

Rather expend that energy investing in you

And thrive and on the inherent possibilities.

Fear’s Intrusion (Part I)

Vicious is the apparatus of fear…

For it descends upon you with such awful might

Either in stealth manner or by insidious descent

Then in persistent measure seeks to erode, should one

Permit it to take permanent abode within one’s essence,

The body of hope that ought to propel each one

Into the absolute realm of possibility and beyond despair.

Reject the albatross!

Promise Anew

And although, the dawn of the new year is now but a memory,
As the year itself, unrestrained by time, embarks on its own course
Through the passage of each minute, towards the fulfillment
Of its own destiny within the global enterprise of existence,
The dawn of hope never eclipses or fades into the oblivion of time
Rather, with the unfolding of each precious moment, lies renewed
Promise that knows no bounds and springs to inspire one and all…
Therefore, seize it and maximize its potential to fit your purpose.

Happy New 2015.

Solace Unlimited

When the tempests of life surge
And appear really determined
To overwhelm the desperate soul.
Seek courage in Him who has
Been faithful through the ages,
The Ancient of days, the Almighty
And one True God, in whom
Unlimited power abounds, and
For whom the impossible
Does not exist, for His peace
And His mercy are more than
Abundant to provide sufficient
Solace for all your needs.

Discard Disappointment

Do not let the disappointment of the moment
Linger too long with your soul, my friend …
Commit to discarding its woeful garment and
The propensity to overwhelm the spirit with despair.
Rather, seek within and around you that which uplifts
And in earnest measure find joy, and maximize to your
Own advantage, the treasures of the unique gift, of each day.

Recalibration Required

It is but not a failing to embrace new things
In the quest to advance forward in life…
For when we hit that point, in this terrain
Where the winds of the challenge remain
Steadfast in their determination to incite
Discontent and lack of tranquility, and
Old plans, which otherwise work, yield
No momentum towards progress, then
My friend, it is time for introspection towards
Full recalibration and the utilization of new strategies,
To transcend that which appeared to be immutable.
At this juncture, take heed to adapt, and
Not rely solely on what worked in the past,
Which may not have the power to see you
Through the current turbulent storm.
Rather with courage, try something new
For there is victory in realizing the futility of
The plans that no longer bear fruit.

Wisdom Prevailing

Refrain from courting the seductive enticement

Of the dastardly but evidently harmful trap,

For attendant to and within the darkness of the pit

Lie ills of ruinous and horrendous proportion.

Although alluring it may appear, as it beckons

With the tantalizing aroma of feigned attraction,

Endeavour not to accept its deceptive invitation

Wherein disaster of certain takes sure habitation.

 

Rather, with resolve, listen and follow ardently

Wisdom’s refrain, and pursue ye so earnestly

The alternative promise of hope’s true reality,

And that which is patently of responsible order.

For even though it, may emerge and fully unfold

Only whence its dawning is but timely and due, the

Persisting triumph, over that ominous snare, which

Loomed so treacherously to derail the benign spirit,

Will multiple the reward of faithful patience, and

Coupled with the bounty of a virtuous promise,

Justify the endurance that directed your upright steps

And sustained your days along the propitious course.
