EXPRESS YOURSELF


I’ve always loved to express myself with songs and poems. This feeling particularly springs up at a time of extreme emotions - joy, laughter, tears, peace even hunger.

I wrote this poem at a time when all seemed dark and lost but as always joy does come in the morning. This is an out pouring of my heart and I hope it blesses you.

Have a lovely day!

I want to write poems that have soul,

Reaching deep within to make you whole.

Words that pull out your feelings,

Expressing thoughts ambitious with meanings.

I want to write poems that have devotion,

Lines of letters to pull your emotions.

Drawing out laughter and love from the heart,

Treasuring memories of people present or past.

I want to write poems that sound like music to my ears,

Makes my mind travel with every passing year.

To know as long as you have today life can be better,

Throw away your regrets see your world is sweeter.

I want to write poems that make me a dreamer,

Yet never lose sight of my redeemer.

Whose hands I hold in this journey I travel,

To help us find peace in ourselves to value.

- Anita Ebhodaghe

I have never really been into poetry unless it rhymes or is funny. Perhaps i shouldn't be saying this out loud :) But reading this just now, it resonated within me and I started thinking of how to set it to music. Thank you pastor for sharing

Thank you Pastor. You are a true definition of a Christian. I love this poem. When the world expected you to respond to some of the uncomplimentary remarks leveled against you, you kept your cool and refused to condescend to the indignity of yielding to the "low life." You still exuded very sublime and christian virtue of self-control. I will ALWAYS LOVE YOU. Over the years, you have demonstrated consistency in Christian character and conduct. You thought women worldwide how to reverence their husbands. Your humility is second to none. God will reward you openly and abundantly. I was compelled to making my comment today because i felt keeping quiet will be tantamount to hypocrisy. GOD IS NOT UNRIGHTEOUS TO FORGET YOUR LABOUR OF LOVE. YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN PER EXCELLENCE. I love you

Thank you Pastor Anita for sharing your gift! I really love this "I want to write poems that make me a dreamer, Yet never lose sight of my redeemer. Whose hands I hold in this journey I travel, To help us find peace in ourselves to value." I want to dream, but not outside my redeemer

Hmmmm! that's not the end, you can still make amends with your husband.God is not angry with you at all just go back to him or through your Pastor, but go on your knees first to seek guidance from the Holy spirit. I'm really happy for you. May God help and see you through..love you so much.

Thank you dear Pastor for making us dream again. Now I know it is not too late to pursue those dreams i dreamt of as a child and not be swept away in the face of pressures of adult life. Keep being radiant Pastor Anita.
