Light
by Okunola iyanuoluwa

In the darkness,
God light my path,
For I'm drawn to his light.
Like a moth
to a flame,
For I'm not fazed, nor,
doubted the might of his light.
But in his light.
i see the way,
for he leads me and guides

That Miracles Mens faith do move,
By wonder and by prodigy
To the dull angry world let's prove
There's a Religion in our Love.

God, A Poem
by James Fenton

A nasty surprise in a sandwich,
A drawing-pin caught in your sock,
The limpest of shakes from a hand which
You'd thought would be firm as a rock,

A serious mistake in a nightie,
A grave disappointment all round
Is all that you'll get from th'Almighty,
Is all that you'll get underground.

A Death-Bed
by Rudyard Kipling

1918
This is the State above the Law.
The State exists for the State alone."


Some die shouting in gas or fire;
Some die silent, by shell and shot.
Some die desperate, caught on the wire -
Some die suddenly. This will not.

Cleared
by Rudyard Kipling

(In Memory of a Commission)

Help for a patriot distressed, a spotless spirit hurt,
Help for an honourable clan sore trampled in the dirt!
From Queenstown Bay to Donegal, O listen to my song,
The honourable gentlemen have suffered grievous wrong.

Their noble names were mentioned -- O the burning black disgrace! --
By a brutal Saxon paper in an Irish shooting-case;
They sat upon it for a year, then steeled their heart to brave it,

His Love Is Never Far
by No Name

Despondent from the hurtful things she said,
The words of anger ringing in my head.
Upon my bed I cry and pray to You,
And often wonder if Your word is true.
But who am I to doubt Your tender love,
When You have shown me mercies from above?

The God Who made the world, the sky and sea
Sees me for who I am, and still loves me.
Almighty One who calls the stars by name

One Hair
by Jeff Bresee

I thought to change one hair tonight
from white to black, atop my head.
It seemed a try would be alright
while lying here upon my bed.

I called out to the powers that be
in all their forms amidst the sky,
but nothing changed at all for me
though I had given my best try.

The Value Of Time
by Brian Leversee

The sand has passed through the narrow glass
And barely a grain remains
The ticking arms of ten thousand clocks
Strike out a quickening pace

The days which seemed like years are no more
And years that were as decades now fly
And all of our hopes and dreams and fears
Have no longer a place to hide
