Contend Discontent

Discontent is fighting
Against content;
In this contest
Discontent not contend
Against content;
But feel contempt
In his
Against that, which is, content

May content

As discontent
Is fighting
May it be

Is intended
To thrive
And to indeed
So that
Can continue

To smile

Biblical Verse Splendour

Foxes have holes and birds of the air nests,
But the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His Head;
Do you not know that you are the temple of God
And the Spirit of God dwells in you?
In My Father’s house are many mansions;
If it were not so I would have told you;
For I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go prepare a place for you,
I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you.
And I will pray the Father,
And He will give you another Helper,
That He may abide with you forever --
The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive,
Because it neither sees Him nor knows Him;
But you know Him, for He dwells with you, and is in you.
I will come again and receive you to Myself;
That where I am, you may also be.
“And where I go you know,
And the way you know”.
A little while longer, and the world will see Me no more,
But you will see Me.
Because I live, you will also live.
At this day you will know that I am in My Father,
And you in Me and I in you.

P.S. >He uses your tiny little puny body as His temple on earth whilst He goes to prepare a place for you in the house of His Father which has many mansions.

Thoughts about lies.

The sun does not rise and the sun does not set. I'd love to live in a world that's more honest about  these things. A world which does not feel the need to incorporate lies into the language that speaks of the things this world does not yet understand. Can we not be content about the fact that there are still some things we do not yet know fully about and as a result should not make up lies to compensate for our limitations?

We are not God.
Our knowledge does not cover the earth.
Let us rather use the little knowledge that we do have to discover it.

To love

To love is to agree with
What was,
What is, and
What will be;
To be joyful always and
Kind to those who
Lived their lives
Not in limitations
Of your life's experiences.

To love is to agree with
What was,
What is, and
What will be.
To hope and
To faith.
To be content
With the reality that
Nothing in this life
Is ever in our control;
Even our own lives.

To love is to agree with
What was;
What is, and
What will be.
To hope and
To faith.


Woah! I can't believe I've last posted something in 2012. But that is understandable. I was in 3rd year and had ample time to kill. 2013 was a busy year. Honours. 2014 even busier. I'm doing my master's now. It's been quite an experience to say the least. And to think that it's going into 2015? Hm! But excuses will never end. So I'm back again. Expect poems, vents and appreciations. Plus I met Masego about 6 months ago! :-)
