the making of a son

This poem is dear to my heart, it was written in 2014, a couple of hours to my 22nd birthday. It was initially titled ‘Reflections’ and has passed through the Refiner’s fire many times. It was ‘performed’ at Ablaze 2015 with over 600 freshmen in attendance.I pray it blesses your heart and draws you closer…

Machseh(Refuge)

As the tides rise And my fears with it My eyes search for the shore Looking wildly for arms made with clay As the waves billow You test the limits of my trust And ask me to come to You With steps barely a whisper, I crawl The ground quakes Disintegrating into a million pieces…

Hidden Treasures

It is a book That tells of history centuries old Of thousands of years ago when life was simple Of obedience, sacrifice and faith Of my ancestral heritage Of my future resting place Each word fits in with the next like pieces in a puzzle Rhyming together, in sync with another Each verse, just as…
