Broken Glass


Pheeewww… Hhhhuh…  sweet sigh of relief

Are wondering where I am coming from?

Hmm (nasal)… Great experience, I just cannot believe

Look all over me, especially my arm

Check out the cuts; it’s simply a miracle 

I was caught up in this glassy crazy cycle 

 

And I just needed to break loose

But the escape plan had incredible rules

I hope somebody here feels me?

Honestly, you don’t need to go so far to see

That I needed the Maker of the rules

Or better still, One to whom they were inapplicable

Like the One to whom the earth is a footstool

As it is written in the Bible

 

Wait! merewo fufuo no; nnom ho nkwan

Don’t be in a rush to conclude like Einstein

Whether you have a wife, a husband, friend or concubine

Oh wait the last one is not Christ-like so I redefine

 

Whether you have a wife, a husband, or friend

Just remember that life is a relationship

Put another way, we relate to each other in a ship,

Which is this world

This is not a rule anyone can amend

 

What keeps us alive in this ship is love and respect

Perhaps, they should have been a single word, in retrospect

Respect-Love, Love-respect, Resplove, or Lovspect

However you want it, but don’t bisect

It is like the waves and the ocean

Is the latter fierce because of the former?

Or is it… vice-versa?

Either way, don’t you admire their coordination?

 

When Holy God is descending into Eden

It is love and respect animated

When the man and woman are clothed in coats of skin

It is love and respect animated

When God takes up the very nature of depraved man

It is love and respect animated

When Christ Jesus suffers Himself for crucifixion

It is love and respect animated

When I read first Corinthians thirteen one to thirteen

It is love and respect animated

 

Whilst of this irrefutable truth, I was ignorant 

I kept wallowing in a pool of self-deceit and folly 

My soul was afflicted with the pain of reciprocity

Although on the outside I remained buoyant

 

So, if I will not hurt and disrespect my own flesh

Why would I the one with whom I am one in body?

If I dare not disrespect God whom I confess

Why would I the one created in His image and glory?

I relate to all people through Him and Him alone

For my eternal freedom thrives on this truth
