Poetry, Video

Extra! Extra!

I recently found an upbeat song by Lecrae which has been released this year. Man, it’s totally awesome!


This video reminds me of a poem that I wrote many months ago. My poem is about calling up all creative beings to rise up. Why did I write that? Well first of all, I believe everyone is creative; God’s put His creativity in us. It is like, like father like son thing, if you know what I mean. Secondly, I simply want to encourage people to fan up their passion and live life the fullest.

You know it is amazing how we are made so different; some of us are made to compose music and sing beautifully, while the others may be good at creating films, sculpting, painting and anything else. I believe that God has designed us for Himself and calling people back to Him (our Creator / Father) is our purpose.

Here is the poem: For The Time Is Now

When you hear some melody in your head,
Don’t be afraid,
Pick up a pen and write it down,
For the time is now.

When you see yourself move along the beats,
Don’t just imagine it,
Go on dance and make your Daddy proud,
For the time is now.

When you are drawn to colourful things,
Don’t skip the ideas that ring,
Grab a paintbrush and paint better than Picasso,
For the time is now.

When you find yourself pretending, miming, making noises,
Don’t stop that joy,
Get a camera and take a bow,
For the time is now.

O rise up all you creative ones!,
God has given you breath so you can touch (the others),
Go on spread like fire brighten up the world,
For the time is now.

Folks, if you are reading this know that you are so creative. What is it that triggers you or stirs you up? Do you like to build? Do you wanna dance along with the beats when you hear music? Do your fingers move along your air instrument when you hear some melody in your head? Do you like to sing with all your guts with or without people seeing you?

Let us fan up the fire in us…

    I love it! I have a passion for singing and writing lyrics. From the lyrics that are my most inspired, I know they come from God and for now I just share them through posting so others can know God is always right Here with us ♥.
