Soul For Hostage
I held my soul for hostage,
thinking I could extort from the Lord
and that move that I made,
is one I could never afford
and though He saved me anyway,
I dare do that no more.
I put up for ransom,
that I thought I owned
but He made me quickly to realize
my life from Him is a loan.
I tried to call it quits,
throw in my earthly towel.
I became self destructive,
leaving my soul to be devoured.
Definitely I had had it,
I had given up on this life.
I was angry with the Lord,
access to my soul,
I tried to deny.
He knew what I was feeling,
that I felt so torn apart.
He had planned already my deliverance.
It was prepared before life’s start.
I’m not boasting nor am I bragging
how I turned away from God...
just shouting He brought me back...
but just as loved.
The road isn’t always easy.
At times, it is bitter, cold and hard
but faith is a must have
whether traveling a mile, an inch or a yard.
Bridges were definitely burned.
Curses fervently spoken
but never did my sweet Lord Jesus,
never did He stop His working.
It’s tragic how much time I wasted
trying to fight with God.
How was I to beat Him?
He gave me these two arms.

What makes my books even more unique....
My books are even more unique because they are poetic autobiographies...individual poems I've woven together to tell my story.
(Click here for a brief video describing my books.)
When you read my books cover to cover, they tell a story. The bonus is that my story is made of individual poems. You can always read your favorites or whichever suits your mood or even need at any given time.
