Emancipation

Never before has the longing for his coming been as strong as it is today

Is it to escape life and its challenges?

Maybe that is part of it

The world has become such a harsh place to live in at times

Pain is inevitable,

Poverty rife,

People continue to live in strife.

HIV AIDs is plaguing our nations

Crime is barricades every station

Prices of food make it difficult to eat

Theft, fraud and corruption conspiring to meet

The seasons are changing from what we once knew

In summer we see the soft winter’s dew

The lightning lights up the mid autumn sky

The birds that migrate are not sure when to fly.

But though there is confusion

There is hope to be found

Amidst all the noise

There’s a joyful sound.

There will be freedom for all those who mourn

For even the earth groans with thistles and thorns

We all are in need of emancipation

From chains that have bound us

In humiliation

Look to the sky

Wait in anticipation

The King of Kings will descend,Image

And give us true emancipation!                                                                       Written 12 Oct 2008

    Hi BFevferley

    Thanks for the follow *, as the reason I write is to share.
    * (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

    # By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Kind regards

    Best wishes from the First City to see the sun (in summer) …and we’re also the first to see the sunset and the stars (in winter-time)
