“The Blessing”

Thank you,

for not suppressing

the Blessing.

For confessing,

exactly

that which

Faith, Hope and Love mean,

through decompressing

your Soul.

For yielding control

to

the dreams,

on your Heart.

Thank you,

for, simply,

having the courage,

to start.

For sharing the secrets,

the how-to’s,

with others,

without spin.

Thank you,

for letting us in.

For fighting the impulse

to stay

in a comfort zone.

For going it,

alone,

with Grace and with Truth.

Thank you for owning it.

The Gifting,

in which you fit,

so perfectly.

Righteously giving,

of your special blend..

and defeating the urge,

to make a mere brand,

from the honour

of Living.

Thank you,

for leading the way.

For showing the passion

to keep digging in,

when many,

would choose not to stay.

Thank you,

for knowing the time

to move on,

when the growing,

from the present season,

is done

and committing,

to unknown horizons,

to help,

without need, for a reason.

Thank you,

for all that you are…

and,

for all, that you do

The World,

would be less than,

if it were not present,

and filled,

with the Blessing

of you.

“The Secret Place”

Sanctity.

No time,

nor space,

for vanity,

nor,

triviality of Gifts,

intended to

heal rifts

and harmonise,

through Higher Truth..

The only frequency,

that sifts

the sacred wheat,

from hurtful husk.

Sheds light, on dawn,

from dusk,

of doubt.

Illuminates

the Secret Place,

the Tabernacle,

of Celestial Grace.

No rushing this.

Creative testimonial

we, now, embrace

and

trace our Reverence,

to an Eternal portal,

where Immortal reigned,

before the World began.

Before the seas took steps.

Before forests, yet,

had any depth.

Our treasured roots,

once slept..

But, then,

formation, it occurred..

of Spirit, Body, Soul and Mind,

through

His Infinite Word.

“The Reason”

For a reason,

do we wake, at night,

whilst others,

are at rest.

We are capturing new visions,

with which,

we have all been blessed.

For a reason,

do we wake up,

with an urge, to greet the day.

With a, deep-seated, desire,

to see dreams,

come out and play.

For a reason,

do we pace the ground,

processing every plan.

It is,

in the name of details”,

turning cannot”, into, can”.

For a reason,

are we overwhelmed,

sometimes,

until we cry…

Feeling stuck,

within the “wherefores”,

and the “what ifs”

and the “whys”.

For a reason,

do we take a breath,

until we realise,

that,

these long lines of inquiry,

are solutions, in disguise.

For a reason,

do we practice,

do we mirror

and repeat.

We are searching

and fine-tuning,

every moment, every beat.

For a reason,

do we sing,

and act,

and dance,

and paint

and write.

We are living

our creative works

and giving,

with delight.

For a reason,

do we state that,

“It’s enough!” “Last time!” “The end!”

Then, proceed,

with more ambition,

for our ideas

to ascend!

For this reason,

we all do it,

as, a hand fits in a glove.

Call it passion,

or vocation.

There’s a reason,

it is

Love.

“Magnificent”

Know,

that you are loved.

As you lay awake,

before the steps

of your new day,

you take,

know this Truth,

that will not break.

Understand,

that you are adored.

You leave

the constellations floored,

as,

from their

lofty carpet,

they observe,

how you endure,

increasingly, more.

Remember this.

You are,

undeniably, magnificent.

You can not be ignored.

As shadows appear,

have no fear.

For you are meant

to be here.

You are revered.

Sea vessels,

change the course

they’ve steered,

to catch a glimpse,

of your Essence…

Paint the plimsoll line,

just to float

at your level.

Revel in it.

As the breezes

sweep the dust of dusk,

to view the finery

of your

Divinely-decorated Spirit,

know this….

…The World

and all Creation,

long, to dive

your depth..

and marvel

at the profundity

of your stillness,

within it.

“Soul-fie, Not, Self-ie”

The day has arrived.

As sun rises,

it has

dawned upon you,

that Now,

is the Time,

to heed the warning.

Time,

to take your stand,

against

any woman or man,

who tries to

ride, roughshod,

over your

Super-Nature.

Oppose,

those,

who seek to

use, confuse, abuse,

your

Goodness.

Reject

the misappropriation

of your meekness…

through accusation,

of its weakness…

For this,

is

a,

blatant,

lie.

You,

are power,

under control.

In Divine defiance,

of anything,

their words seek

to imply.

So,

hold your ground.

Face forward,

to the Light…

…and,

in this position,

find your rest.

Select,

only, the best.

Stand,

poised,

as you pose,

to take a Soul-fie…

…and recognise,

within your Spirit,

how richly,

you are

Blessed.

“Tell Your Heroes”

Do not spend them,

solely,

in thought.

Let those waters flow,

with words,

that cannot be

for any other.

Speak,

in wholes,

not, thirds.

Sound the sentiments,

which stem,

from elemental

frequencies…

…And,

do it,

frequently.

Knock fear,

off-kilter.

Let those machinations,

from the brain,

be filtered,

by the Heart..

… and point them,

in direction of

the root

of

your affection.

Hesitation,

is,

no longer,

ratified.

Straightway,

is the attitude,

to take.

The stance, you make,

to bless your source

of inspiration.

Leave them, gratified…

..with,

not a modicum

of room,

for doubt.

Oh,

dear, friend

Tell every hero,

boldly,

that

you Love them.

Get it out!

It could be

the

most crucial

message,

that you,

ever,

send.

“In Good Time…”

There comes a time,

when urgency has passed.

False Expectations Appearing Real,

disappeared…

Into the ether of Love,

dissipated…

Knowledge of mind,

settles into the new home,

of Heart…

When skin does not hold in,

nor tether you to ‘limit’,

rather,

becomes the precious vehicle,

propelling you to Greatness.

No more,

definitions of magnitude,

taking precedence.

When recognition, not relied upon,

is by-product,

of shared Blessing.

When Motivation waves Intention onward and upward…

Where Light is presence,

in spheres of influence…

… and Life spares no expense,

in gifting Honour…

but swims to depths and lengths,

his Brothers and Sisters to lift…

… bench-pressing gratitude of incremental weight,

’til the Soul sweats.

There comes a time, when this is Eternity…

and it is now, dawning,

that this kind of

Faith, Hope and Charity

is, truly,

the best that it gets…

“M.G.A!”

Women of Grace,

dynamic elegance,

diverse style,

adopted me into their hearts,

like their unknown child…

…covered me in narratives

of life and love

of a man, of a star,

who has always been one with them,

whether near or far…

One glorious venue,

united in sound,

creatively dressed-to-the-nines,

all around,

pulsed with drumbeats and patterns,

soul-stories in song

and bound this community,

all night long…

Call and responsiveness,

laughter and tenderness,

Truth and Transparency,

pain-painted lyrics stressed

nothing was being held back…

No message was lost in one note of a track…

Metaphors, similes,

soared to the rafters,

pleased all who had, long, left their seats…

some dancing,

some pouring their tears into words,

which described life’s rich triumphs

and subtle defeats.

In one breath,

then, next,

inspiration and joy sent them soaring,

as memories rolled down their cheeks.

Peace, mixed with pace,

transfixed in this space…

… as the room smiled,

the precious group glowed…

… and an army of Family,

legion of Fans,

joined their South London Champion,

in toasting,

to all that was shared…

… making merry, as the saying goes…

They were beautiful,

powerful,

this M.G.A…

… his Most Glorious Aficionadoes.
