Be strong in the lord

Posted: 22/07/2016 in POETRY

​I am sick and tired of this life that has no meaning,

I am weak and weary of this life in sinning, 

So in the lord I take anew beginning for in Him there is no sinning but there is winning,

For we are  fighting an invisible war, a fight for our souls 

So I don’t wanna utterly fall, Instead I want to depend on the lord, 

Who is my stronghold, For without Him can’t even crawl, 

So i wanna be strong in the lord not physically but spiritually,

Cos to Him I belong so I get along as long as I am strong,

For He is still on the throne,

So I don’t wanna abuse my youth,

Instead I follow ways of truth,

Girding up my waist,

Having put on the breastplate Of righteousness,

Functioning in a Godly mind,

To walk and be the most kind,

Coz without His light I am blind,

I can’t see am left behind,

So I take up the shield of faith, To remain intact, 

Exact, Infact having  a clean heart, full of light,

To block out any darkness, 

Coz He is my strength in ma weakness,

He fills me with the right spirit in ma emptiness,

So to Him I remain immovable, 

My faith unshakeable as I put my trust in Him,

So be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, 

Be equipped with His armour,

So you can win the fight, 

Blessed are the people, who put their trust in the Lord 

and go out to the battle,

with his shield and sword. 



The biggest obstacle standing in your way it’s you,

Coz it’s you who keeps saying keep can’t make it,

It’s you who keeps saying No I can’t achieve it, see it’s all about you,

When Obama say yes we can, you are still there saying no I can’t,

When papa God say give me your hand,

You are still on the ground you don’t want to try and stand,

When G.O.D says this is my command you still don’t want to follow and understand,

So it’s all about you,

You are therefore the biggest problem facing yourself,

You are too negative about yourself,

You say there is no point even in trying,

You say there is point in praying,

Be born again and become brand new,

Be positive and start believing in you,

So believe that the only person better than is you is you,

So then reinvent yourself,

By getting rid of your negative self,

Start building bridges between yourself and success,

And therefore you will see the progress and prowess,

Coz the only person qualified enough is you,

Other people have mere opinion about yourself but you,

You have facts about yourself,

So translate your thoughts into action,

And start working towards it,

Coz one step in the direction of your dreams is better than a thousand descriptions of your dreams,

One action will do more for you than a thousand intentions,

So if you started you are the right track,

Be encourage by the fact that you are no longer where you were,

Be inspired by the fact that you are getting closer to where you want to be,

plan well so that you can hit your dreams running,

And do not be among those who are still planning,

Coz hardwork, accountability and integrity

Are the driving forces towards us reaching our goals and dreams?

Wake up call

Posted: 15/01/2016 in POETRY

I have decided not sleep again,
Instead i wanna wake up,
From this sleep of laziness,
From this sleep of Aimlessness
From this sleep of Procrastination,
Cos i want to see a clear direction,
So i stand here with a warm heart,
I put away fear and tear it apart,
Cos i know that failing to plan is planning to fail,
So ilet the words go,
I let the words flow,
I let the word blow,
Your direction for you to know,
that i am speaking out of my pains,
Like the blood in ma veins,
I let them go with rhythim of my heartbits,
Yes in bits then statements,
Which make sense and thats where my sentence commences
That everyone who got where He is has had to begin where he was,
So i start today coz i know that nobody can go back,And start anew begining but anyone can start today and make a good ending.

Happy new year

Posted: 31/12/2015 in POETRY

New Year is the start of a new life
Without forgetting about last years failures and disappointments
We will not enjoy another year if not for the guidance given to us by God. He is the Supreme Being who leads our every step.
New Year is God’s way of letting you know
That there is still a chance for you to change for the better.
Have a blessed and prosperous New Year!


Sometimes trouble comes along our way and we feel alone. All we can sense is darkness all around us and fear may tend to creep in. We feel like we are all alone and God has forsaken us but how wrong we are because He promised to never leave us nor forsake us. It is those moments that you turn to Psalm 23 to remind yourself that the Lord is your shepherd and you shall not be in want.
I came across this Psalm 23 and it encouraged me a lot
The Lord is my Shepherd – That’s RELATIONSHIP!
I shall not want — That’s SUPPLY!
He makes me to lie down in green pastures — That’s REST!
He leads me beside still waters –That’s REFRESHMENT!
He restores my soul — That’s HEALING!
He leads me in the paths of righteousness –That’s GUIDANCE!
For His name sake — That’s PURPOSE!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil — That’s PROTECTION!
For you are with me — That’s FAITHFULNESS!
Your rod and staff they comfort me –That’s COMFORT!
You prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies — That’s HOPE!
You anoint my head with oil — That’s CONSECRATION!
My cup runs over — That’s ABUNDANCE!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life –That’s BLESSING!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord –That’s SECURITY!
Forever — That’s ETERNITY!
How reassuring to know that my relationship with God has such depth. May that sink in today and make you see your relationship with God from a whole new perspective

Who are the lunatics?
Is it the ones who see horror in the hearts of their fellow humans and search for peace at any price?
Or the one who pretend they don’t see what’s going around them?
Don’t practice what you preach if you are not the type of person you preach to,
They say they love me,
But in real sense they hate me,
They say they are ma friends, but in real sense they are enemies,
You were once ma best friend but now you won’t get best of me,
So don’t bother to criticize me,
Cause if you look inside of yourself you will find plenty of hypocrisy,
One day there will be judgment and then we will get to see,
Coz you say you are happy with my success but in real sense you are angry with ma prowess,
So am left wondering,
Coz all you want to do is just squandering,
Ma belongings and everything mine is just scattering,
Left alone gathering,
They laugh at me when I cry they discourage me when I fly,
All they do is just say but their actions portray something on the other way,
Yet they still got the courage to say they love Him,
Whom they have never seen but hate me the person they see every day,
Men that bits logic coz it’s illogical,
They hide their smiles behind their No,
They portray being good when they are really bad, so that no one can see,
When they speak they lie,
Promise but do not want to keep it,
Make mistakes but do not want to admit it, our words should be our bound,
What we say must measure what we do,
Coz talking the talk is easy but the achievement is when ones walk is reflected in their own talk,
Always practice what you preach or what you preach will fall on deaf ears.

Just a little prayer

Posted: 24/06/2015 in POETRY
Tony the poet

Just a little prayer God is ever there for those,

Who really care
He helps dispels your cares and worry,
With just a little prayer,
Invite the lord into your heart He has much love to spare,
A love He gladly would impart,
With just little prayer,
Let Him know when things go wrong,
No matter when or where,
He can fill your heart with song
With just a little prayer,
It matters not your race or creed,
God does not compare,
He can fill your wants and needs,
With just a little prayer,
No power on earth can give to man,
God immortal blessings rare,
With just a little prayer

Who is she???

Posted: 22/06/2015 in POETRY

Her eyes are like diamonds that are shiny and bright

Her hair is so soft and black as the night,

Her legs are long and her body is slender,

when you holder her close she is warm and tender,

Hiding amongst the shadow so tall,

Looking much clear she’s not there at all,

Always in trouble with her curious way,

She stays out all night and sleeps in all day

Creeps into your room and sits up on your bed,

Gives gentle kisses on your nose and your head,

Always expects you to open the door,

There isn’t a sound as she walks on the floor

She will not come over when you call,

Walks straight past as you are not there at all,

If you want to work she wants to play,

Doesn’t care if you forget her birthday,

Is she your wife or is she your lover?

Is she a friend or is she your mother?

She is none of those things I can tell you that

This beautiful creature is only but a cat
