Other Side of the Jordan

Bright supernatural glory

brighter than the sun.

I dream of,

life above me.

I dream of,

the one.

The lakes and trees:

the great wonder

falls short, of

what He sees:

Miraculous yonder.

Transcending, earthly pleasures.

Matchless, to vain desires

exceeding, natural measures:

Haven of joyous martyrs.


Life, like no other,

I reconsider.

Human order?

I reason deeper.


my imagination, I find:

your nature, truly refined.

My understanding

feeble to comprehend,

the towering


the beauty of the end.

The flesh, repels

strongly, against its gates.

within the wells,

salvation awaits.

Language fails.

What joyous miracle!

The falling of the scales,

the fire shall rekindle.


Water of meaning

baptised, I am, in fire.


In the warmth of your healing

my gracious messiah.

Afar, lies of existence,

embraced, I am, in truth.

Searching, for deeper essence

I find, no greater sooth.

The void, in my soul

I feel no longer.

I watch, unfold:

a garment; holy thunder.

To die; to live,

I must, to see.

The day, the eve

of you, and me.


Cries of the Redeemed Sinner

I have been freed

of evil grasps,

which intended to abuse,

and render me bound.

I wonder, in loud silence:

the outcome,

of the rest of days.

I contemplate

night and day,

how my sorrows:

in the dark,

shall be made, to joys:

in the light.


Proclivities, tingle

in agonising excitement.

I resist;

of resentful will.

I contemplate.

I contemplate.

I contemplate:


only for the dark.

I await:

the joys of the light.


Unaware, I was

of you,

by my side.

Friendly, constant companion.

How long,

have you been there?

All along,

Through the night and day,

He responds.

I am here,

to comfort you,

He exclaims.

And lead you,

on a glorious path:

to the joys of the light, to the joys of the light.



A part of me, to share,

unleash the smile within.

Delivered from despair;

my life is worth living.

Never separated;

though we are apart,

a slice, dedicated

lies in your heart.

The truth, we hate,

feelings, we crave.

Longings, innate,

of mine, I gave.


Far or near,

our love runs deep.

I come to bear

with tears I weep.

The nights, we flew

our minds, in space.

A spark, who knew?

would light my face.

In you, I learnt,

to love my brother.

The times, we spent

will last forever.


The dreams we hold

so dear, today;

rise from, untold

pain, all the way.

To see again;

we swore, to fate.

We play, a game

of love, so great.

In time, we will

be whole again.

To sooth, and seal

the verge of bane.


Why I call you Brother

Desperation, swinging

The edge, I stand.

I’m not alone, you remind,

stretching out your hand.

Great journeys lie ahead,

our paths, deeply intertwined

again, I see, my friend

a love so deep, so kind.

No superficial spectacle,

no pleasure can deny,

the beasts we wrestle with:

dance together, tonight.

My brother,

my brother.

My brother!

Do you see what I see?

On this journey, we face

the same enemy!

Poisonous, but sweet.

Do not be seduced,

for if you are,

your feet

shall surely be bruised.


Tread the earth, you while

but Sisyphean, your search.

For if enticed, you mile,

glory, shall not emerge.

To break away:

you need,

to soar the hill ahead.

No longer

shall you heed

to voices in your head.

In time,

you shall arise

and dine, with worms in dirt.

To set alight,

the eyes:

to lift your smile and hurt.


shall you know and see

the joy of truth, within:

it sets,

the bound free.

To rest,

it leads you in.


I look,

in holy wonder:

new meaning

with my brother.

The journey, we sojourn

with him, I renew.

Contempt, we burn

to bloom, with You.

Alas, I slay

judgement, for I see,

the price, you pay

I shall, to guarantee;

a life, of peace

of love, I must lead,

to have, and squeeze

the vine, of the creed.


What shall we do?

Our road shall one day end

until then, you

shall be

a mirror and a friend.

In you, forever, shall reside

a light of truth, to fulfil.

For in it, if you hide

our arch, you shall conceal



Showers of amity

to sheen the spirit.

The pressing on,

for things unseen.

Waves of faith,

for greater days,

on it, to surf

amidst the chains.

Closet, of the hurt,

the secret place of strength,

to drink, of the cup

the fullness of the throne.


Prisoner of hope

surely, it shall come.

Anchor of the light

brink of morning shine.

Many nights, in blissful silence

many days of peace.

In the bright, there lies a crown

to bind the truth within.

Farther than you dig,

in it, you shall find

a mild consuming fire

guarding through the times.


Legacy of Effiong,

the tree, shall one day yield.

The stairway of grace,

true power of the weak.

A wind, making whole,

priding in tenderness.

Capstone, looked down upon,

in him, shall ye be seen.

Grasses, held as gold

shall die, and be gone.

New wine, quickening,

the pain allows for joy.
