S A L V A T I O N

MAG #104

i remember myself
lying there
thought i was alone
thought i am deserted
but later i realized
there are millions of us there
still, as if dead
floating naked in the cold
crawling in our stomach in hunger
some are positioned up side down
trying to gain our strength
to once again
get up and continue
until
a bright light came
and shone upon us
Oh God!
the prayer is answered
the help has come...

I am dedicating this post for
Whitney Houston...
May she rest in peace
in the care of the Almighty God.
Amen.

  4. Nice. And this: "trying to gain our strength to once again get up and continue" so telling of what life is. And the dedication is apt.....what a tragedy her life became.
