FAITH IN GOD

Faith is built Truth is revealed When I feast daily on God's Word
I listen I hear I listen again My spirit hears My spirit sees My spirit believes  My spirit speaks what it sees Firm trust in the truth That God’s Word Is sure and true
I believe I speak I act In obedience Looking unto Jesus Cause He that has promised is faithful

SONG OF VICTORY

Long time ago The young sat And sang While the old nodded their heads In harmony A victory song
The sang loud All alliance heard Of how we won Our freedom
Now same song Is sung freely Listen along Learn the song In full Sing along
No one is silent All singing Willing to sing on And on As long as it is done freely  And in harmony The winning song The song of victory All Rights Reserved © Stella C. Obokoh 2018

I AM A WOMAN - TBT

It's Throwback Thursday(TBT)😊 and my TBT goes to the first poem I ever shared👩 I am a woman
An expression of God’s Love
A show piece of His Excellence
The last of His Creation
His master plan for Companionship
I am a woman
A helper, multiplier, builder
A trainer, teacher, instructor 
A keeper, caregiver, 
A manager, an organizer
I am a woman
I am blessed and loving
I am warm and beautiful
I am graceful, humble and kind
I am prudent, industrious and wise
I am hard and smart working 
I am a solution provider
I am a woman
I am not a weak vessel
I am not a punching bag
I am not useless
I am not a waster
I am not lazy
I am not a problem
I am not less a human
I am not a failure
I am a woman and I say NO to Violence Against Women
I SAY IT, I MEAN IT and I STAND BY IT SAY NO to Violence Against Women, MEAN IT and STAND BY IT. All Rights Reserved © Stella C. Obokoh 2016

TOWARDS GREATNESS By Choolwe Lubaya(Zambia)

Even when down you fall, Grin, and stand tall. Reach your hands to your dream, Dipped in nothing but a patient beam.
Befriend the greats, For paved will your way to greatness: I've learnt in Achebe's Things Fall Apart, This teaching I narrate.
Thanked should be the Messiah,  As you try embracing a bright future. Courage need smother your life And make count each breath.
Stress shouldn't entangle you  From moving through  Your hurdles; Worry not about your struggles.
Music will be handy,  For it will surely to you be uplifting- When low your charisma falls. Do but embrace yourself 
When you reach your destination, Be but other people's inspiration.
By Choolwe Lubaya


VAIN GAIN

Through precepts Story preserved And passed down Of triumph well treasured Victory so value It’s worth and cost Freedom fought for Heroes who stood for it And heroes who fell for it How the shackles where shattered The bleed and the plead The treads and the treaties The Valiant and the vanquish Pass down to you Put in your hands What have you done To maintain and sustain this freedom I see it gradually washed Washed away By the flood of strife I see it gradually swept Swept away  By the wind of deception You stretch your hands And that of your fellow countrymen again To same shackles of slavery You were liberated from For your vain gain Gain of the moment Think again Think!!!

GUIDING LIGHT

Guiding Light Guide my little heart Ignite it Lord And help me shine
Guiding Light Guide my longing thoughts Show me the truth And help me walk in it
Guiding Light Shine on my path Show me the way And help me follow
Guiding Light Guide my decisions Shine on my doings And make me a true reflection of You

MUSE OF A NEW BEGINNING

Freshness fill and active beginning After a long well-rested and fun filled holiday As we get back to our morning running routine Great anticipations Solos and songs of expectations As we get into this new phase All set and eager to explore  And adventure into greater learning experiences Thoughts and talks of new classes New friends, teachers and instructors Expression of fears tickling in as we get set Hush!!! All will be fine All for your good The school bus shows up Excitedly they run off But deep down in me Are parts of me whom I have bonded with Passionately this period Being taken away by necessity As they run off to go become Ones in whom I one day Would be proud I bore and bred Smiles as the school bus zoom With the happy singing lovelies While I sink into the day’s activity Awaiting their pleasant return Into this welcoming arms of mama.

ATTITUDE

The winning one is that person who weans himself of an unpleasant yesterday and welcomes today with an open heart and attitude to win.
Life owes you nothing when you choose to remain bitter over failed attempt at success but owes you fulfillment when you dust off the debris of failure and starting gain.
Waiting for who will lift you after a fall may keep you on the floor for longer time. Get up, do it fast and start again. No one share a dance floor with failure.
