Questions You Make Me Ask

How is it that a year feels like a day 
and an eternity at the same time?
Does love reach across time, 

and defy the laws of nature? 

Tell me if you know, how is it that our live
only continues to grow? 
They say that cultures collide, 
and that races divide.
But how is it that even 5,000 miles 
couldn’t keep us apart?

To fix our mind on Christ. That is the only thing.
Keeping our gaze, determined on Him.
No distraction, to shift us off course. Continue reading “Fixed”

Ambagsman Van Liefde

Lief Here – liewe Here – lieflike Here
Ambagsman van liefde
Bereiker van volmaaktheid
kompoinis van saligheid
Direkteur van volwassenheid
Lief Here – liewe Here – lieflike Here
Arties van ons ewigheid
Breker van ons goddeloosheid
Connoisseur van ons persoonlikheid
Dromer van ons vryheid
Lief Here – liewe Here – lieflike Here

“Holy” Suicide

Kill desire
To live the lie
Castrate passion
In hopes of freedom
Drown ambition
To fit the bill
Suppress emotion
To keep appearance
Gag action
To avoid mistake

Continue reading ““Holy” Suicide”


There is a great General. Master of battle. Lord of armies. Commander in Chief. He sets his gaze upon the earth, looking, yearning and asking: Who will serve me? Continue reading “Who?”

Reserved for One

Idols abound in this life. Worthless Idols that do us no good*.
Carved out images of powerless beings. Detestable forms of unholy things. Mute, dumb, blind, senseless. Cold stone, lifeless eyes.
Oh yes. “I renounce these things!” says Mr. Christian. “Who do you think I am?  Would I behave like the heathen of the east?”
Then he goes and sets up idols in his heart.*

The Great “I AM”

He does what He does
He wills what He wills
He goes where He goes
He says what He says
He moves what He moves

Composing Salvation

God of my darkest hour,
See see and see again!
Forever my Strong Tower.

God of my final moment,
See see and see again!
He’s there to make atonement. Continue reading “Composing Salvation”

Die groot god ewolusie

“Daar is geen skepper, alles het vanself ontstaan,”
sê die skepsels, “die aarde, son en maan –
aanvaar nou sonder rusie,
dis alles die werk van die groot god ewolusie.
Hy weet niks, sien niks, en kan niks voel,
maar hy stuur nog altyd af op sy doel. Continue reading “Die groot god ewolusie”

Psalm to Him

You hear my unspoken prayers,
the desires of my heart are all seen by you.
To my silent vows you hold me accountable.
To my thoughts unspoken,
you respond with care.

When I speak in the language of my soul,
You respond with the love of your own.
When my heart is stripped bare,
I find your own finding me there. Continue reading “Psalm to Him”

Beware Pagans

There is a religion
A religion which shoves itself down your pagan throat
A religion of the righteous, unlike you
You third world barbarian

A religion which fights terror. With worse terror
A religion of the majority, outvoting the minority
A religion of rights, the right to kill, the right to war Continue reading “Beware Pagans”

This man in his youth

Look you here
This man in his youth
Slender and tall
Admired by all

Look you here
This man in his youth
Passionate and strong
Loving no wrong

But look you here
His innocence is gone
His vision has died
His soul has cried Continue reading “This man in his youth”

I’m sorry, but there’s no such thing as independence

Independence does not exist. We only think that it does.
It is a mirage on the horizon of our pride.
Nothing and no-one can be independent
Everything and everyone must be interdependent

Continue reading “I’m sorry, but there’s no such thing as independence”

Community Well

Your body’s not a community well,
That’s a path which will lead you to hell.
If you want to sell your soul,
You will have to pay the toll.

So fall on your face,
Accept your disgrace.

Let God into your broken heart,
With his true love healing will start.
Your body’s not a community well,
So stand up from whence you fell.
