Catch me if you can
Tell me, what`s your clan?
Time and Chance did happen
Lines and Pounce made ambles
I am saved
I am graced
You say ‘I`m hot’
I say ‘I`m not’
The one with Him is all
The world minus Him is null.
RISE ABOVE IMPOSSIBILITY
The sea of Humanity looks up to you;
You are her standard,
The shoe of mediocrity is a misfit on you;
Remove it and stand hard!
Impossibility is intangible,
Like a mirage, it is immaterial.
Impossibility is ungrabbable,
Like a mira, it is aerial,
rising as high as the ladder of one`s irresponsibility.
Leap over the aerosol from the “Springboard of faith” with agility.
Enveloped in wonderment’s wide arms
Eloped from wantonness’ s wild harm
Let the glory fall
and Kindle this Holy hall.
Oh no, it won’t fall like from some storey
‘Cos the glory already made the hall holy
The glory is resident within me
His blowing is evident, believe me.
I am the hall, the glory is the third in trinity
I was the fall until the glory befriended humanity
Now I am forever incandescent
For the Spirit is ever efficient.
