I SPEAK

I speak to the patient who intends to take his last breath. And I speak to those who think theyve exhausted their last help. I speak to the baker who just baked her last bread. As she prepares to sell to the man on the street who just has his last cent. I speak to […]

Apex a sharp and slippery slope and I AM grappling with air, competing with no beast for the elusive spark pleading with invisible for succour a nipple will do, a godly one oh lay my rushes across the soft help me to my sinking through rest my heavy boulder deep…

MOTHERS FORGET

Many, many sleepless nightsI often wonder how uncomfortable the experienceOf bearing a child on the insideThe vomiting, the baby kicking and all the nuisanceThe burden of carrying another being in your wombAnd being easily noticed immediately you step into a roomWhen your feet and face are swollenAnd it’s obvious that you are bloating Yet you […]

STAND OUT

STAND OUT

STAND OUT No two words could better slap today’s Christian in the face. When sin knocks at the innermost desires of your flesh do you stand?

WORDS FOR TOMORROW
