Rookie (Accra - Ghana)


Sometime ago I was wondering
How to get my daily bread, I was struggling with life
My heart was trembling
I was suffering
I was drinking, lying, backbiting people killing and quarrelling
I realize my whole life was falling and crumbling
I needed someone who is loving and caring
Who could do all my supplying?
In a moment, listen, my eye was twinkling and focusing on the most high God
I went on my knees and started praying
Lord, take my soul I need your healing
Now my days have started multiplying
My path is just as the light shining
My life is blinking and sparkling
There is a new song in my mouth which I will be singing
And as I sing, I will do the jiggy jiggling dancing
I have hope in the Lord my heart is not troubling
My cup is overflowing, it is amazing
I will pray morning, afternoon and evening
And as I pray
I say
Lord show me the way
And I will obey
Grant me peace especially today
You are with me, I will not be dismay
Because you will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
Before I was afflicted I went astray
But now I have kept thy word and I am in your presence to stay
You brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay
You cleansed me, clothed me and served me on a tray
Blessed be the Lord for not given us up as prey
For their teeth, for your thanks
I can’t invite you for a buffet
I can’t present to you a bouquet
If you name a prize, honestly I can’t pay
All I say is glory be to your name for not casting me away

Poem of the Day

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
