Repentance

Going to church religiously
Listen to the Pastor attentively
With paper and pen on hand
Taking notes
Never miss a service
Or even late

Know the word of God
From beginning to end
Quote the word of God
Like the back of hand
Sing songs of worship
And praises
Feeling of euphoria
Soul uplifting
Tears roll down
On cheek
Feeling the love
That’s been freely given

Good and kind
In every deed
Help the needy, feed the hungry

Looks like everything is perfect
But somethings missing
You never repented
From your sins

You could worship Him
And read His words
Love both neighbor and enemies
Even forsaking the world

But without repentance on your part
The word of God
Is of no effect
At all

If I, Would You?

If I tell you that
Christianity  has to nothing to do
With worldly prosperity
Would you still wan to be one

If I tell you that
The path is narrow
That leads to heaven
Would you still be interested

If I tell you
That to follow Jesus Christ
Means to deny yourself
To serve rather than to be served
Would you still
Have the ears to listen

If I tell you
That to be a Christian
You would be rejected
And forsaken by the people close to you
Because you offended them
For speaking the truth
Would you still keep the faith

If I tell you
That you would be beaten,
Spit on, curse upon, forsaken,
Jailed and even death
Would you still proclaim the gospel?

If I tell you that Christianity
Commands you to love your enemies
To bless those
Who curse you and pray for those
Who spitefully use you
Would you think that would be insane

And yet that’s what Christ exactly did
For every sinner
That includes you and I
And every living soul on earth

Now
Would you still
Want to be a
Christian?

All About You

So much for planning
So much for hope
So much for faith
Or is just fate?

So much for understanding
So much for forgiving
So much for second chances
Is change ever coming?

Days have gone by
So are months
And years
Decades
It’s still the same thing

No matter what I do
No matter what I think
No matter how I feel
No matter how convince I am
It’s just you.

The Emptiness

Sitting on my bed
Things going through my head
Expectations are illusions
Like a smoke, a dust,
Like a silhouette, like a mirage in the desert
Hoping to fill that thirst
Only to find emptiness.

What does life revolve around?
The money, the cars, a big house
Perfect family, caring friends
In which I have none
It’s not enough
Something is missing

Listening to music
Stare outside of the window
Having a thousand yards stare
Through the clouds and beneath the horizons
What is beyond that
Is there someone there
Or something
To fill the emptiness
To fill the void it created

Everything to be desired
Have been fulfilled and exceeded
The more you have
The more burden
If desire is not there
Would it make you stop
To feel like a human

What now, what then
The emptiness.
