THE C.V.

The sparrow’s songs. The jackal’s laughter.
The lion’s roar. Eve’s allure.
Adam’s strength.
One string through them all.
I am the one in all.
I am.
Me.

I’m the greatest artist of all time
Way before Shakespeare conceived Juliet
I had you in mind, my Jewel, yet
Unlike Juliet and her Romeo
My romantic tales with you end with no woes.

I am Lover. I am Writer.
Warrior drenched in blood and sand.
Ten thousand chariots, one rider. Me.
I created light. I am Light Himself.
Within, outside, and beyond time.
I am.

Stand in awe before me. Beauty Himself.
Most Amazing. Most Intelligent. Most High.
I am the One who was, who is,
Who always will be jealous for you.
I just am.

Notice.
That organ beating beneath your rib cage?
It sings my praise.
Each and every breath you take
Is a testimony to my genius. No tease.
And when a strand of your hair falls, I notice.
Note this.

I am the grandest musician ever
See, I set your heart beating
And those strings that play each time you blink
I made those long before
Beethoven ever played Duh Duh Duh Duh!

Duh!
For you, I am haven.
For your problems, I’m a monster.
I’m your most primal craving.
Though you know it not.

Forget Ali. I’m the greatest.
I call into your depths. And you answer.
I cancel your debts.
I destroyed your death.
I’m the depths

With a staff, I divide seas.
Dry rod flowers. Ax floats on water.
The bulldozer. I am.
When I nod, the mountains melt.
The seas? They flee when I breathe.
I do the impossible.
I am impossible.
I am.

I am.
I touch your tongues, and you spit flames.
I make you hot. Make you look hot.
But if you’d rather look warm
Then out of my mouth will I spew you.
Who’re you kidding?
I took the punishments due you.
I call many. Choose few. You.

I am.
I’m Tsidkeneu. I make you new.
I am Creator. Crazy Romantic.
I am Theos. Yah’owah. The Vyevo-Vyavo.
The Lily – not of the valley, cos I made those too.
I’m the Lily. Period.

I am.
I am the beginning. I am the end.
I am each and everything between zero and infinity.
The infinite. The without-which-not.
I am not just God. I’m also the Just God.
The God of justice. The God that just is.

I am.
Yahweh. Shaddai.
Omniscient. Omni-knowing.
Omni-sabi.
Na only Me sabi as e dey do you.

I. Am. God.

Grace

Laud my Lord

Too good- this God is
Sinners He has called His
Not changed by time
Not timed by change
Not asking for a dime
Aint that too strange?
Love-drunk Son of Man
‘Tipsy’ for sons of Men
A drop of Love’s heat
Steams off His heartbeat
Battle of my life- so I
Dig six feet high
Okay, low- and Behold
Changed- strong and bold!
Covenant tied;
My groom’s pride.
Above Prince and Palaces
In Beverly places.
That’s my Lord,
Rise up and laud!

THANK YOU

I have known the Father’s love for me
God has been good to me
He’s been good.
Through it all, He has been there for me
God loves me
I didnt earn it
I didnt bribe Him for it
He just loves me.
Years roll by,
Situations come up
Giants threaten me…
But, He has always fought for me…
I do get scared at times,
But, He has always comforted me…
Securing family and friends for me…
Providing for me,
Protecting me,
Building me…
Doing it all for me.
If all I can say is ‘Thank you JESUS!’
If all I can say is;’Thank you Lord, God Almighty!’
Then, I better say it well…
Cos’ my God has truly been good to me.
