Curb The Negative

Do not let the ripples of irritation in life
Be they constant, or intermittent, detract
From the promise and joy of living earnestly.
For they, possess the power and proclivity
Of attempting to consume or overshadow
Life to the disadvantage of sustained progress.

Therefore, make diligent entreaties towards
Focusing on the nature and promise of hope.
Accentuate that which inspires the spirit to soar.
Convert the destructive into positive momentum,
And propel yourself forward to the realization
Of the dreams you envisioned for the fullness
Of the bountiful gift of the life that is yours.

How’s Enigma

The riddle of when how became how
May not be as confounding as
How simply, how became how
Or how, how manifests as how.
And may not be as troubling
As what in its essence came first.
How it evolved, or how it was once.
Or what was, before how became how, and
What transpired for how to assume how, or
What came to be, for how to develop into how.
Nonetheless, whatever the order or transpired,
What how may be now or came to be, may not
Necessarily be as important to decode as
Whether how should remain how.

Eternal Comfort

They may assail your being…
Take all your earthly possessions.
Unjustly curtail one’s liberty
Confiscate all they think you own
And trample on one’s humanity
Even unto the cessation of mortal life.
Yet, they cannot even if they try
Touch the Almighty God and Creator
Who provides the divine assurance
Of Eternal bliss, even if they try.
Thus in all matters, rely completely on
He who is greater than greatness, and
The generous benefactor of all grace.

Wisdom’s Trails

Where lieth the true essence of wisdom.

Does it just accompany the chronology of age

Simply because the years turn into decades of life.

Is it found through one existence defining experience

Or amid the multitude of challenges encountered during

The phases shaping the course of our fragile mortality.

 

Is it manifest in considered circumspection, probably

Applied in varying degrees to ensuing circumstance and events.

Is it the unique province of a few who then impart it wisely

As revered sages to the expectant seeking its solemn direction.

Or is it a derivative of the collective thoughts, then spoken, or woven

Into bound volumes of scholarly accounts for the edification of many.

 

Could it be, that it is encountered in the calm solitude of the walk

Through the parks and gardens of contemplation, or arises from

Deep within the routine of the communing with the supreme being.

Possibly, it may reveal itself in one of or a combination of these.

Yet, the one who finds wisdom should guard it utmost jealously

For in its midst, is contained the invaluable compass to navigate life.

 

Thus, irrespective of where its imprints are encountered,

When indeed in its time, it attends to your discernment

And commands by its very stature one’s rapt attention

Court it fully, and abide wholeheartedly by its doctrines.

With astuteness, hold firm to its priceless undeniable virtues

To guide your judgement, utterances and all undertakings.

That its essence, may steadfastly illuminate your course

With its sagacious attributes to your enduring benefit.

Overwhelming Grace

I am overwhelmed by your grace, oh Lord

For your mercy consumes my soul with joy.

You have constantly been attendant to my cries

And you have heard my silent weeping in the night.

Although, errant are my ways from your righteousness

Even yet, thy favour present and sudden embrace me.

Amid all the cares of this great universe under your charge

You in mercy incline thine ear unto my pleas, and in the

Abundance of thy healing power with blessings surround

My being, despite myself and despite my sins.

You with your faithfulness, cease not to part the

Red seas of my life, and with thy angels land me safely

On the promised side, according to your time and will, in awe,

My mortal frames acknowledges thy wondrous supremacy

And that through all life, thou are more than sufficient unto me.

Rejoice oh my soul, for the Lord of all creation, has in

Faithful covenant, manifest yet again, His love for me.

Blessed be the name of my God, the Almighty Jehovah

Ever present, mighty and ever victorious on the battlefield.

All praise, glory and thanksgiving be yours, my King

Forever and through the ageless age of eternity.

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.

Elevated Relevancy

We are all elements within the greater cause.

Therefore, we must seek and find our roles

And points of positive connection with others,

Towards the dignified respect of, and certainly

For the advancement of the cause of humanity.

Your actions count!
