I Wish To Be - Poem by segun Johnson Ozique

I wish to be better Christian, be virtuous: Perfection
To open my eyes to His Glory; His Mercy, Holiness and Grace
Quench my thirst for elevation, and purification: Precision
Nourished spiritually to starve the hunger to praise Him all my days

Wish to sing to the world, on rooftops, His praises
Of His presence and spirituality in all human knowledge
Recount to all listening ears His joy, miracles and ways
His saving earth, from man turning it the devil's sewage

To comfort all in famine, say; He'll do as He said He'll do
And to all who thirst; to your ability will be His downpour
But to all who remain in denial, blasphemous; be in dread
All; He'd apportion according to deeds, for all evil He abhors

Be patience all in need; desirous, under the weather, or fatigued
He feeds the birds; cloths the grasses, wont see you strike your toe
You, to whom He assigns the majestic privilege of His semblance,
His promise stands as in creation; everyone to be rewarded to toll
