Welcome to heartbreak ( Lamentations )

Questions ( Why )

One man dies; a baby is being born
Life is a hub of happiness and a place of sufferings
Floods destroy while others cry for rain
10pm in Accra but already tomorrow in Cape Town
Too many people watching broadwalk empire
Narrow gate is too small for us to find
Bible said we’re created in the image of the Lord
God is love yet love and lust we can’t tell the difference
Love don’t go the way it came
Man starts seeing girl his daughters age
Wife is sleeping with son’s bestfriend
All they share now is the house they live in
Love don’t go the way love came…

You are the plague to my being, the pain of my thoughts
I am the scourge of your flesh and only the devil is greater
My heart is crushed, your spirit is broken
Your soul is lost, my body weakened
We’re caught in the state of after love
Locked up in the county jail of ignorance
Your eyes can no longer cry
I’ve never seen you wetter baby
Nocturnal emissions have shunned
I’ve never been so sterile baby
I see your desperate plight and feel your grip loosening
“Quick do something?”
I bombard you with hopeless X’s and O’s
With the hope of saving you from falling
Afraid of being lonely, I hug you the more tighter
Isolated in your fear, you pray I do not let go
Suffering from abandonment issues
We’re perfect for each other
How bitter is our fate!
“I shed my light for you
You shared your life with me
In the hope that one day, maybe one day
Eternity smiles upon us with love”
Our happiness has been captured
And taken to distant lands
My pain has become my master
No one to help me
Your beauty is like a starving deer
Searching for pasture
All you do is groan and hide your face
Our eyes grow dim with tears
Hearts heavy with load
Souls empty and desolate
A place haunted by jackals!
“We’ve risen to the height of success
This should be forever baby
Search into my eyes and show me who you see
You’ve stolen my heart to put me in a cardiac arrest
Look inside my heart and tell me what you find
I’ve captured your mind causing a trauma to your brain”
I always thought that we’ll be together
I always knew we’ll be together
Open up your mouth and take a sip
I pour out my heart to you
Now we find our thoughts fleeting, knowledge anemic
An empty heart for a thirsty tongue
I lament for roads untraveled
You weep for sights unseen
My carelessness has wrecked our thrill
Your range of vision has been reduced to endless suspicion
My feelings told me all is lost
The body said to fight for love
I’ve led you to the lion’s den
You’ve placed me in the fiery furnace!
“This could be forever baby
Never seen a face that brighter
I give myself no rest
Grant my eyes no relief
You are the thesis of my prayers
The basis to my living
I am the nucleus of your image
The sunrise to your day and only
Jesus Christ is greater.”

He Let Go

He lies on his bed thinking back and reflecting how a once perfect affinity has now become whatever it has;

What went wrong he whispers looking at the ceiling as if staring at the stars;

Not long ago he thought, no, he knew they could conquer the world together;

Each day brought more beauty he never knew existed;

He always knew he had a deep affection for her;

Clearly at first it was a crush, but with more time together grew a tree blossoming with fruits of love;

But he couldn’t bring himself to tell her how he truly felt fearing the worst;

He thought it wise rather to write a story about their connection only to get what he feared most. Rejection;

How? He thought. We definitely had something or was it I alone?

A whole lot of emotions swelled up in him ranging from anger to embarrassment;

He swore to avoid contact with her altogether but everyday was harder than the last;

And then he knew he couldn’t avoid her;

There she was looking ravishing as usual;

He saw her, she saw him, but the shame he still felt was lingering and he could not muster the courage to talk to her;

She clouded his thoughts the whole day and he finally gave in and texted her at night;

But he knew they weren’t going back to how they were before and it irritated him much;

And with all that frustration lying inside him, he unleashed on her unsuspectingly at her most vulnerable;

Strike 2;

This clearly isn’t what he wants, he hurt her real bad with some harsh words and the pain burned him afterward;

The once confident boy had lost faith in himself but swore to make things better;

Trying too hard at making conversations, and the ‘no’ he gets when he asks her out cripples his self faith;

He now feels sorry for himself and is lacking in ideas;

He reflects on his mistakes and always grits his teeth at how many he’s made regretting each one severely;

Pathetic is what he has become;

To make things worse everything around him isn’t going great either;

He suddenly realizes how weary he has become;

Then he knows it’s time to let go, in order to move on he knows what he ought to do no matter what pain it may cost;

Once he knows what to do, his self pity automatically deserts him;

He knows deep down he never meant harm and hopes for the best in her endeavors.

He smiles now because he knows the old him is back and even better than before.

Love Left Undefined

Much has been made and said about the word love. Right from the beginning the world was set in love. Sin tried to come between this eternal bond between man and his creator. Jesus’ mission on earth was made complete by the crucifixion and ascension to heaven.
Surely this isn’t a new topic for us to discuss but then again the attributes and characteristics of this four letter word is rather too much for our brains to ponder on. What is love then? Personally, I don’t believe there’s just a sentence to define love. It is an emotion that cripples and overwhelms the recipient.
I am writing this not attempting to explain anything or unravel any hidden mysteries on the word. Rather this piece is written to just babble over something as amazingly beautiful. Love is a feeling when felt, lights up the darkest of tunnel. Love is light and light is God, for he sent his only begotten son to come and die for sinners and devourers of his holy name. Love is when Abraham, provided with a miracle of a child still listened to and obeyed his Maker when asked to kill this very son.
1Chorinthians 13 doesn’t in my opinion do justice to the word as the simple term ‘agape love’. Imaging ticking all the points made about love in that passage. OH WHAT A FEELING!!! And God our father ticks all these and a trillion times more than we could fathom. Love can’t do wrong; it is a force of nature that is in to stay. And we are encouraged to love thy neighbor as thine selves. What I find interesting is that the bible’s report didn’t say like but instead love. So now let’s make reference to the incomplete list made in Corinthians and see if we project such feelings to our selves. Do we love ourselves or has saying this sacred word already become a cliché. If we don’t agree that we love ourselves that much how could we replicate this(whatever this enigmatic feeling entails) towards others. Have we truly felt love, then why would we not want to share this happiness *another understatement* with our fellows? Let’s fix our selves before we could move to our neighbors. I trust that God open our minds to make us ask for the greater gifts(faith, hope)and the greatest of them all – imagine that – love.
