Poem

I started this some time ago, by the sounds of it, it wasn’t the brightest time in my life… today I finished it 😀

I feel asleep one night
and down I fell
a dream of bugs and bells
The fire burnt bright
the shadows grew deeper
I hope i awake to daylight strong
and an ever deepening understanding
and voice for your song

Clearing out my laptop sharing the poem and thoughts – mostly half finished so they’re gone from my computer but not lost forever.

*

Find the soul of the lost
Taste the hour that eclipses
Know that tomorrows walk will add blisters on to blisters
Time shall not bear easy on you
Nor shall the road be smooth
Fight for tooth and nail upon the rocky path
For tomorrow will not be easier
But maybe it won’t be harder

You have called me
All that I am
Put me here in this moment
Standing with the lamb
You gave me a map
And You ask me to pray
To work with you on my direction
Everyday
You ask me to intercess
For my fellow travellors
For their paths and directions
Are important to you to
For we all serve your glory
The glory of the king
Our direction faces into you
To you our praise we sing.

To the glory of your name
I bring to you my life in praise.
How can you accept us?
I’ve seen the work our hands have done
Crazy shameful moments
Time wasters, life suckers
Criminals, hypocrites
Murders, surfers.
Middle class mums
And high class dads
Working class aunts
And vagabond uncles.
Brothers and sisters lost and in pain
Wandering feet and wandering spirits
Life with incredible limits.
Boundaries and walls
I can’t imagine how they can fall
How can your inexhaustible love
infiltrate into this pollution
into a world where you can be moving
yet few see you
and fewer seek you
Such disunity and helplessness
 But Lord I have seen your people
Connected, praying, loving
Not judging.
I have seen their passion for you
Their love for your people
Who have answered your call
And stayed true to your word and work
I have seen hearts break with love for these people
And I have seen hearts mended here
I have seen people walk in humility
Walking ever closer to you
They have their eyes on the goal
And are solid in their foundations
Based upon the one true Cornerstone
They are a living for you Lord
And you supply and bless
To the glory of your name
In response
I bring to you my life in praise.


Will I

Hello you,
 How are you?
 Can you see me?
 I can see you!
 Will the sunshine tomorrow
And the rains keep at bay?
 Will you be here to see me
And love me all the same?
 Will the journey be so much easier
Or will be harder day-by-day?
Will each step be springy and light
Or held with drudgery and fear?
Will my voice be strong and true
Or a whisper faltering here?
Will I look on boldly forward
I truly know my way?
Or will I tentatively reach out slowly
Arms length away?
Could I wake up tomorrow and this is gone?
Could I walk away and forget?
Could I ever gain a love like this?
Could I ever run on forwards?
Will the questions get easier?
Then, I suppose, the answers get harder!
Will the disappointment be an honour?
Will my shame mean pride to you?
Will an answer mean new armour,
Or a brick wall between me and you?
When my hair goes grey and my walking is hobbled
When I grow to tired to sleep
Will I wake and wonder still my Lord
Or will you give me the rest I need?
I understand I know little
I understand, I’m not sure I wish to know more.
All I know
I am Yours
This is sure
My Lord.

Poem/Song

I wrote this poem whilst on camp, and one of the leaders and the boys turned into a song. I have the copy with the chords on kinda but as I don’t understand chords….

Flames of the Spirit, burn my soul
Cleanse my heart, make me whole.
You’ve taken my burden
Carried me far
Come O Lord set me on fire
Fill me with your Holy Desire
Water of the Spirit, carry my soul
Clean my heart, make me whole.
Washing away my burden
Carrying me far
Come O  Lord Wash me a new
Give me more desire for you
Wind of the Spirit, blow on my soul
Bless my heart, make me whole
Blown away my burden
with me till a far
Come O Lord breathe on me
Make my desire you to seek
Loving Lord and Spirit, you have me soul
Yours is my heart making me whole
Gone are my burdens
You are with me
Come O lord, Come O Lord
I ask: be my desire forever more.

Startfragment

Its not the end point the journey?
Its not the its the end point?
Its never the start!

We race towards the goal, but we walk along a narrow path. We all started somewhere.

Start fragment. End together. Journey… still being undertaken.

People please bare with me, we all started at different places all on different paths going to one goal. My map might not read the same as yours.

One step, dare you.

One step, dare you.

Then just another,
Keep on walking,
Past the crowd.
Everyone may be watching,
Some may even take notice,
Some will walk against you,
Some will never see.
Dare you, keep moving,
Keep moving, taking ground,
Solid foundations,
No faking these relations.
Look around see them moving with you,
Listening, different paths,
One destination.
Dare you.
Keep Moving.
Dare you.

guess what… a poem

like a firework
ive zoomed across the sky
flown high
wondering
pondering
falsifying
and terrifying
but not at all undiluting
but ever so likely
that one day i will go boom
a bright fright
for you all
