I SEEK YOUR FACE

Fallen in the desert of the unknown

Aided by water

And the daily murder of plants and animals

I look up and I see the skies;

House of clouds, sun, moon and stars

I look down and I see me and my likes

And all that we are harmful to

Then I seek your face

II

I seek your face

But I get blocked by many channels

I seek your face

But I get lost in many ideals said to be You

I seek your face

You who legends say have the power to create and take

I seek your face

Although I know, except in name

None has lived forever by Your authority

III

Show me Thy face

So I will know my now and all my paths

Show me Thy face

So I can clean all my dirts which I unknowingly threw

To taint its state

Show me Thy face, so like a bird, I’ll know my nest

This settling unsettlements

This cooling boilings

This flawed perfections

Of knowing less for protection

Sits not in the guts of my thoughts

I seek Thy face

Show me, so I can access your crown

And heal my frown

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)

I am in such a quiet place spiritually right now. It’s good to read this fervor to know God I know this will pass because I’ve been here before. I am a fickle thing but God is not and somehow, I’ll learn something important from this…lull? It seems that it is conflict that sends me running to Him. I wish I could just stay there without the conflict. We human beings are something.

You have a wonderful day, sweetheart. I should be asleep. I haven’t been feeling so well. Say a prayer for me. That should be enough to stir some fervor for God but I just feel quiet…and full of Prednisone. God bless and keep you.
