I ask that you forgive ‘them, and lessen the baggage you carry upon your shoulders, for I’ve come to realise that such a thing does no good, but slows one down.

They came at night, lifting their evil banners on one hand, and darts on the other. They paraded streets, looking for souls to abduct, and men to recruit. They chanted perilous slogans to announce their presence, and no one dared to remain outdoors whenever these marauding fellows came to ‘play’.
They were men of the night who caused lives to take flight, they were hijackers of peace, and of course, every man’s nightmare.
I had to leave,
cos tarrying would only
bring you more harm than good.
You call it cowardice,
I call it saving your ass.
This heart has been to a tough war,and there, it got punctured,
there, it bled, and bled,
but never did it die.
The mutilations it suffered,
won’t mar it from loving as it should. Though it seems out of shape,
it will continue to beat perfectly.
Though it looks severely broken,
the love it holds will forever remain whole.
This heart has been to a tough war,
but it shan’t stop reeking of pure love.

some pretty beads
around her waist;
quite a sexy waist,

of the music with
Oh my, never have I
seen a body portray
such mighty poetry.
We once called them wise men, duffing our caps, giving them
all the respect we’ve got, only
for them to begin doing things
only foolish men would do,
making fools out of us.
tranquility amid calamity
is no ordinary feeling,
it’s a feeling so heavenly,
you can’t help but
associate it with God
cos when you really sit down to think of it, you realise HE’s the reason you seem quite settled in a precarious situation. HE’s the reason that storm (even when it turns out to be a hurricane) never seems to blow you away.
your smile is contagious,
you smile, I smile
