Inspirational Poetry by Stephen Obinna Abara

THE LIGHT AND SALT OF THE WORLD

 

In a world filled with tribulation
In a world filled with hate and crimes
In a world filled with evils of all kinds
Yet , a man born in the home of animals
came to rescue all to salvation

Many have argued about this miracle
yet, can’t make a sense of why they argue
miracles have been done year in year out
just by pronouncing ‘HIS NAME’
believing and working in faith

Amazing Being ever created unto Himself
gave life which man and woman often take for granted
they kill, persecute, tell lies just to be on top lols.

HE must be watching and smiling on these
crazy creatures though astonishing beings of all times
JESUS IS THE NAME! To God Be All Great
 

 

 

 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

( Inspired by a friend -Mr. Eric Partanen)

 

 

At the crossroad of life and existence (pause)

Lies opportunity to meet likeminded souls

Just like their maker

 

At the crossroad of thought and faith (pause)

Loving, sharing ideas, and given unconditionally

Love unconditional, is Love given, and love cherished

Highly priced, yet unknown by many

 

Love unconditional, is love that bears each other’s burden

Who dwell on the flesh, and within the blood?

The spirit is in touch with this unconditional ‘FORM’

Yet, the forms of Life, is the designs of Love

Designed to suit Love itself

Being cherished, all at once

 

This unconditional surprise is melting the Earth

With subtle consideration undeserved

This form and designs are, and where, present even at birth

Nevertheless, ‘IT’S truth per excellence

 

Unconditional love smells like the rose around your enclaves

You’re an inspiration to humanity, and to my ‘inner child’

Whose real consciousness was once in tune with?

The earth, the moon, the sun and the stars

But now, in check to measure up once again lols

 

Thank you for your unconditional love

‘I AM’; and, are willing to embrace this love

 

ABUNDANCE OF GRACE- HEAVEN ETERNAL

(Dedicated to Aunty Helen)

 

Have ever met Madame ‘Grace’ and Mister

‘Love’ all together working in your life?

Think very deeply about your life from

Birth till today and feel the impact of this

Grace and love surrounding your person,

Your spirit, your soul and your body.

Many are called but few are chosen.

Though we choose, and are free in liberty

To be or not to be, we are still called to be

In the Lord at all times

In being in the Lord, Unconditionally, we are charmed to Love to embrace the Grace sufficient for us to live good lives and come in contact with the Lord.
The miracle we enjoy every day in our lives

Are due to grace of God in our lives. We

Can’t pretend that it doesn’t exist, nor as if

We can do all things without ‘HIM’- our

Everyday ‘MIRACLE. God is our strength

With our worldly challenges and in our

Spiritual journey and when we are

Enjoying the fruits of our labor.

When you come to learn about grace, you

Have nothing to fear again, and when you

Come to learn about HIS LOVE, you are

Entirely free in his presence to enjoy your

Life and get ready to meet the Lord.

 

 

GRACEFUL HEART

 

My sunshine, our sunshine, and our country’s Pride
The rare gem whose exist is immortal glory
Let it go! Let it go! While worry when you can pray?
Let it go! Let it go! While worry when you are full of

Grace?

My sunshine, our sunshine, our Christly pride
Enchanted with love above ready to calm a soul
To sobriety, and ready to challenge a mind to think

Right

Our sunshine, the beauty of the earth, and of the

Heavens

Be in the Lord-Rest in the bosom of the Most High!
