Tear stains on my glasses
Smile for the masses
Everyone expects it.
The classic, "I'm okay" with a happy emoticon
For if you say you're not, you've sinned,
You've committed a grave wrong
Yet, I've read my Bible cover to cover
And those are verses I have ye...Read Full Post »

My smiling lips and yet sad eyes are only the tip of the iceberg for this person that you see
Beneath my everything that makes me me
Is my inherited insecurity
Melanin has rendered my skin darker
And has subjected me to the darkness of humanity
The depths of how devastating misinterpret...Read Full Post »

Hey everyone !
So, in our culture, there is a lot of emphasis on finding your "soulmate". But, I've come to realise that the creator of my soul is my soulmate. Think about it, Ephesians 1:4-5 says:

It's Good Friday, the day we choose to really reflect upon and remember Jesus' death on the Cross for our sins. Here's a poem that I wrote earlier this week that I felt should be shared today; It Is Finished.
The cross hanging from my neck is heavier than anyone will ever know.
When I wear it,
It's not my status as a Christian that I'm attempting to show.
How could I ever show-off my salvation?Read Full Post »

Hey all <3
This is a poem that I wrote - according to my IPod - 604 days ago, though it feels like just yesterday because a lot of the emotions still ring true. I guess that's because we are never truly done confessing to Him. We will always have things to bring to Him.
Proceed with Caution: this poem is not filled with pretty emotions, but it's honest. I was debating whether to post it or not, when the Holy Spirit nudged me and used someone in my life t...Read Full Post »

1 Thessalonians 5:16 tells us to "Always be joyful" (NLT).
A lot of the time, this verse is skipped over for those that follow it as someone preaches about prayer and thankfulness.
Or, it may be skipped over because it seems too difficult.
Come on, who can honestly stand up and say that you've always been joyful?
