Speak

Speak, speaks speak to the people

Until I give you no more words

I’m here to protect and guide you

But you’re not looking at me

You have your eyes on man

What power and authority does he have

None compared to me

I have all authority

Promises, promises – Hogwash!

Man couldn’t keep a promise

If his life depended did on it

Lies, lies, lies that’s what I hear

Coming from every direction

But you can’t hear

Because you don’t want to hear

Is death what you want

I’ll give you death

If not open yours eyes to see what I see

If you say no then I’ll let you be

And make sure you have what you want

The lies that don’t come from me

                                            Jeremiah 13

Overwhelmed and Overtaken

I sat there overwhelmed with fear
Badgering and bickering was all I could hear.
Silence pursued me to where
I was overtaken
By the oil of your presence flowing over me
That very oil was setting me free
Being poured as from a pitcher
In a steady stream
Flowing fast and furious
Like it would never end
I found peace in the flow
How, I did not know
Overwhelmed and overtaken
To a place I’ve never known.
