The Malevolent Wind - Poem by Anthony Obaro

There is a wind
that blows spears and swords.
It's been blowing
since the world saw
it's first day
and first night
sweeping susceptible souls
to where they abhor to be.

I know I possess no power
on my own
to withstand this wind.
But I beseech Thee,
oh, lord,
grant me grace
not to waver
but to stand solidly
till the trumpet sounds
or till my earthly journey ends.
