How I survived.

I use my hope to chain down harmful fears

While designer perks in my adornments operate as visual metaphors for my expected ends

Faith keeps me anchored to the oncoming solution

Till desperate fighting finally separates the treasure from the trash.


Life is calm, then it’s turbulent

Sea dragons and rough seas conspiring against my peace

Though my ears are filled with the loud boasts of unrepentant adversaries

My solidity is unshaken because I have an Advocate behind the Holy Veil.


I smile at the wasteful efforts of the wicked

I watch their labours of hate fail one after the other

My ship keeps sailing unperturbed

For the High Priest behind the Veil keeps interceding for me.


2020 becoming 2021 doesn’t cause problems to morph into testimonies

Every day without God is just another day in the troubled paradise of the earth

Except the Rock of ages is your strength and hope

Everything else you stand on is sinking sand.


So never seek the comfort of satanic strength

Never drink from it’s poisoned chalice

Every gulp you take drains sanity out of you

Lest you end up in hell where sorrowing and lamenting are wardens to the hopeless.


To read another prosetry Wisdom is stronger than might

So what’s your anchor as you journey through this changing world. Talk to me in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Till next time.

On Christ The Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand and dashed hope.
