SITES AND SIGHTS

I see droplets of hope, showers of peace, a downpour of overflowing love, yet in hopelessness we wallow in unrest, anguish and hate. I see flashes of light, beads of sweat; as they run down my cheek in her walk with bliss, yet we’re bound in the dark, our gain never to be seen. I […]

Hearty Scribbles

Published on :

Today I woke up not smiling. I woke up grieved in my spirit, I did all what I had to do, I prayed, did my devotion and studied my bible, then went about my morning chores. I did my chores without humming a single line from any of my favourite songs, it was unlikely. I […]
