LITTLE WRITER GIRL

LITTLE WRITER GIRL

 

Little Writer Girl

I see your pain

You sit in the shadows

You pour out your heart in ink

Your sheet is filled

Your lips may be pink

But you speak no words

All you do is sink!

You sink into an abyss of sorrow

You glance at the mirror and see another

A wrong reflection!

You see the “you” you are creating

A picture of a girl lost in the woods

A child forgotten

A lion injured

You sit on your favorite chair

You spill ink like blood

You stain the sheets of white

Every word tells its own tale

You block out the world

And dish out words

You are disappearing with every written word

You don’t even know it

I see the art

But the image of you is faded

I squint to really see you

But it’s blurry

Where are you?!!

Where is the girl I used to know!!!

Come back home!!!

Don’t be lost in the world you are creating

You are needed here too

Don’t relocate to your world of fiction

Someone here needs you to be great

Someone needs you to see herself clearly

But you are far away

Your words remain

But you are fading

What’s going on?

Wake up, Writer Girl!

Come back home!

Love awaits you on this side

Love you will never see if you fade away

Love you deserve

Love you don’t need to earn

Come back, Writer Girl!

Come home!

I’M SURE YOU LOVE ME

I’M SURE YOU WANT ME

JUST AS I AM

OH, HOW I LOVE THEE!

FROM A GIRL WITH SO MANY WORRIES

TOO MANY…I CARRIED THEM IN LORRIES

A SWEET OFFERING LAVISHED WITH INCENSE

I’M ALL YOURS

CALL MY NAME AND I’LL YIELD

I’LL JOIN THE WORKERS IN THE FIELD

I’LL WORK THE FIELD

I’LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU

ONLY FOR YOU

CALL MY NAME AND I’LL YIELD

CALL MY NAME, OH LORD!

I’M YOURS

THIS IS MY LOVE SONG TO YOU

I CALL IT, “GOD AND I”

THE WALL

the-wall

 

She gave a lot of excuses

So many reason why…

Reasons why she couldn’t try

She would sometimes cry

Make a scene

And go back to her life of sin

Cheating herself

And nobody else

She thought she was smart

And she would tell them this and that

She told them about the wall

The wall that was responsible for her fall

She would exaggerate about its height

“Oh! What a sight!” she would cry

“It’s so tall!”

But she was only fooling herself

There was really no wall

Her fears and imagination had teamed up

They created a wall

They built it

She supported it

And to her, it existed

What a prey…on her they feasted!

She was her own worst enemy

Building nonexistent walls all around her

Walls that would deter her…

…Walls that were stopping her from being who she should have been

A figment of her imagination

What an evil creation!

A wall seen

Seen only by her!

 

What a waste of talent!

What a waste of a beautiful destiny!

Why!!!

Tear down the walls, pretty one!

Recreate a new path!

Forge on!

Don’t hold back your greatness!

Be the you you were created to be!

The you you were called to be!

Not the you decorated with fear!

You are great!

Created perfectly by God!

Be the you He created you to be!

Not the you the world wants you to be!

A HARMATTAN LETTER

a-harmattan-letter

 

As the dust settles on your windscreen
I appear
I’m here!
I’ll write you a harmattan letter
Yeah, that’s me!
If I wish to be naughty,
I’ll draw you a caricature
I’ll write you a love message
Or maybe I’ll instruct you,
“Wash me!”
“Dust me!”
“Clean me!”
Or
“Please, love me!”
Hehehe…
I’ll write you a harmattan letter
And then, I’ll run away!
Far enough to watch you scream
To see you shout
And curse your heart out
How amusing that would be!
Mischief at its peak!
Oh! How I love the harmattan!
Dusty and dry!
Brown everywhere
Dust on cars
Dust on my car
Dust on your car!
So as you read this poem
Please check your windscreen
You’ve got mail, honey!
I sent you a letter
A sweet harmattan letter
Read it with a tender heart
Hehehe…
Lots of love from me
Your sweet sweet Harmattan Joker
XOXO

Keresimesi

keresimesi

 

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Jesu Kristi (Jesus Christ)

The reason

The reason why we celebrate

The reason for the season

A King so great

The birthday that causes all to unite

Friends and family we invite

A day of love

A season of love

Gift giving

Busy kitchens

Carol singing

And great thanks we’ll be giving

Keresimesi (Christmas)

A day of delight

Kind thoughts

Warm hugs

Warm pots

And happy children

Summon them to come worship the King!

On this great day

Summon them to come!

A beautiful song we’ll play

So much singing and dancing

So much excitement

So much laughter

Joy right now and hereafter

Jesu Kristi (Jesus Christ)

The reason for all the merriment

Jesu Kristi (Jesus Christ)

The birthday of the King

Great gifts we bring

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Let’s sing a song of praise

The name of the King we raise

A song of gratitude

With a jolly attitude

We dance tirelessly

We laugh carelessly

With love in our hearts

Compassion and generosity

We spread the love

 

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Come let’s worship the King

Keresimesi (Christmas)

Come let’s worship

He Never Woke Up

He Never Woke Up.jpg

 

Everyone woke up

But he never woke up!

They went to work

But he never woke up!

They came back from work

He never woke up!

They went to bed

He never woke up!

 

They woke up again

He never woke up!

They went to work

He never woke up!

They came back from work

He never woke up!

They went to bed again

But he never woke up!

 

He had a dream

He had a big dream

But he never woke up!

So, he never accomplished anything

SHE WAS NO ORDINARY GIRL

she-was-no-ordinary-girl_small-for-blog

 

She was no ordinary girl

But they had no clue

They stepped on her toes

And laughed at her dreams

They called themselves her foes

And moved against her in teams

But they were unaware

So unaware

That……

She was no ordinary girl

 

He was no ordinary boy

But they had no clue

He was mocked about his talk

Living in a world of dreams and hard work

No one could comprehend his drive

His zeal to thrive

But unaware they were

So unaware

For……

He was no ordinary boy

IT’S ALMOST MY BIRTHDAY

its-almost-my-birthday-fw

Oh, snap!

Have I been taking a nap?

Wake up!

Wake up!

It’s almost my birthday

What can I say?!

Another year of great things

Another year of big wins

Another chance to fly high

And bid failure goodbye

It’s almost my birthday!

Some might call it, my cake-day

Oh well!

My story isn’t yours to tell

My King tells it better

His Word is all that matters

Oh yes!

I have a list

My birthday list

Yes…I’m like that

I want a bank account so fat

And lots of gifts so pretty

Yes…I’m like that

So, see you on my cake-day

Sorry…my birthday

Say a prayer of love for me

And thank you for loving me

It’s almost my birthday

I’ll be a year younger…

…not older

I’ll be a year younger tomorrow

PLEASE STAY

please-stay

I need to go

Please don’t say no

I’ll be back

But not right now

I’ll be away

But not for too long

Let me sing you one last song

A song that will make you smile

I really want to be with you

But I can’t take you with me

The storm would hit me so hard if I do

Please don’t cry!

I know…I know I should try

But not right now

He’ll pursue me

He’ll run after me

He might hurt me

I don’t want him to hurt you too

It will make me cry

So, please stay

You can’t go with me

I’ll come back for you…

…But not now

One thing is certain

I’ll come back for you

And then

We’ll be together again
