Today’s Bible Verse 19.11.2017
Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. — Psalm 73:21-24 (KJV)

The mind of a child

 

DSC_0461 (2)

Uju, Sisan and Yemi out-dancing (freestyle) King David

A mind with tonnage so little yet as massive as the world

Formless and devoid of stereotypes it reaches across walls

Exempt from race, colour, gender, religion, tribe or tongue

A pinhole from which as common unit humanity is seen

 

A mind of reality so real it thaws the hardest of heart

Replicating heaven, a true semblance of the creator

Saddled with a yearning to love with no holds barred

Diffusing artless warmth to everyone threading its path

 

A mind charitable it weeps without bitterness or hate

Parading love standing in the gap like Jesus at the cross

The cry of innocence quick to absolve and reconcile

Spirit of goodwill that disarm the upholders of Hades

  

A mind that snort from depths reaching the undermost  

First-hand and hearty, a soothing wind caressing the soul

Firmness of loyalty even as treachery scuttle to flight

And the mist of bosom fraternity drench the atmosphere

  

A mind dancing it glides through storm like water downhill

Unpractised steps of grace that dwarf biblical King David (2 Samuel 6:14)

Faithful to the honour of a God who relish honest praise

The vast release of joy for life so benevolently bestowed

 

A mind chargeless as air, unrestrained and expressive to a fault

Swinging through superficial moods yet liberated from evil deed

Graceful without season; night and day, homework and play time

A faithful companion at period of plenty or scorching drought

  

A mind constant its timeless truth is nourished for all ages

Wisdom of a child put in words by the only begotten son

Bind not a child for to such belong the heavenly abode (Luke 18:16)

Paradise earmarked for any who like a child incline (Matthew 18:3)
