It’s the last day of the year,
Be happy and of good cheer.
The Lord has kept us thus far
Through trials we didn’t think mattered.
2015 was a ride,
We conquered the bumps and hurdles with pride.
Now we glide into the new year,
Another time to wish the ones I hold so dear
And everyone reading this
A 2016 of Joy and Bliss.
Happy New Year!

Hi there! I’m back again haha. I’m really sorry for this ‘on again-off again’ thing I’ve been doing, you know school and all, but I’m glad to be done for this term and it’s almost Christmas (yay!). I’m not really a fan of the holidays (I know, weird), I just don’t really feel any vibe when Christmas is here, coupled with the fact that I don’t really do anything special for the holidays, just stay home and watch TV.
I’m not saying that the idea of Christmas is vacuous or anything, in fact it’s the total opposite of that as it signifies the birth of Jesus Christ, the one who God sent to die for the world. So why don’t I feel the vibe? It’s because Christmas has lost its meaning over the years. I tend to forget that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus and focus on all the partying and food (btw I don’t eat that much and I get bored at parties haha). So with that on my mind, I tend to almost dread the coming of Christmas, but with time I’ve come to realise that Christmas is not just about the eating and drinking…
Christ was born in this season;
Heaven sent, this is the lesson,
Remember this, take time to reason;
In Bethlehem, born to die,
Sent by God, bringing redemption from the lie.
Think about this in your heart, because in the
Midst of all the merriment and party,
All this is about Jesus,
Sent down for a great cause.
So with that in mind, Give, Love, Rejoice!
Merry Christmas in advance!!!

Gingerbread cookie kisses,
“Never again”, I said
Every single time I cried.
I kept saying I wouldn’t go back
You had left on me a scar, a mark;
Broken me inside, a thousand pieces
Shaken by a series of shivers and sobbings.
“Never again”, I promised myself
To leave our past on the shelf
To gather up dust. Memories
To be recollected by occasional reveries
Of when you had brought me back,
To you it was just a lark.
“Never again”, I promised
But that statement was missed,
Lost in the swift enchantment
Of your fast-dying Love and commitment.
But oh what a supreme blunder
As I was back crying, sad as ever.
“Never again”, I say,
Meaning it with all the rays of May.
The final curtain’s been drawn,
That chapter closed and gone.
Never again will I lend you my heart,
And that I mean with all that’s left of my Might.

Tangy Orange kisses,
Hi guys! So I’m starting something called the Sharing Wednesday where share poetry or any work of art I found interesting in the past week. Enjoy!
So this is something that was written by my very good friend, Israel. I really loved it so I just had to share it, it has no title yet though but I just had to!
A question that sometimes drives me hazy,
Am I or are the others crazy?
I hear and see a lot of persons
Utter the words:
“There’s no God”,
“God is dead”,
And each time,
I wonder, are they drunks?
Are they possessed?
Or simply ignorant of the fact that God is just merciful? That’s why
They can still breathe after uttering such.
You went to bed last night
With no idea how you were gonna wake up,
But, you did wake up,
Now, tell me, who made that happen?,
You go about your daily activities and nothing harmful comes your way,
How did that happen?
Your wife takes in and in the space of nine months,
A new being, well formed and designed is born,
And yet you’ve the nerve to say there’s no God,
That he doesn’t exist,
How dare you?!
The sole reason why you were created was to bring glory to his name,
So, if your life is not preaching God, then you’re being ungrateful.
Restitute your ways!
You shall succeed.
Oreo chocolate kisses,
No serene place, no spot
Where I don’t have a flow of thoughts.
My pen always seems to dance anywhere
I know my inspiration is near,
Doesn’t matter if my piece is long or short.
The devil’s weapon,
A draft, my saving grace when thoughts come
So they’re not forgotten by the morning sun
And washed away into extinction.

Today’s Writing 101 prompt was to make a list. Here’s a list of things I learned from Job.
There was a man called Job
Who lived in the town of Uz
A long long time ago.
He was upright, that’s no news;
Of him the Lord found it right to boast.
His heart was pure,
A pact he made with his eyes not to stray
So he would find favour with God,
Who would show him the way.
He didn’t think bad thoughts towards anyone.
Integrity was his watch word,
He stood by what he said,
He stood strong in faith in the Lord.
Even when on the sick bed,
He wouldn’t utter a cursing word.
He was an encourager,
A comforter to those in distress.
Do you help make situations better,
Or help to make them worse,
By the discouraging words you utter?
He was a worshiper,
He gave praise even in trouble,
Not complaining every hour
Of how his life was rubble,
Even sacrificed for his sons and daughters.
Job was generous,
He gave with his heart.
Do you make people smile or find sadness humorous?
Do you play your part,
Or rejoice at others’ loss?
