Since this will be my first entry, I thought of sharing one of the things that I'm very passionate about which is poem-writing.To start it of, the poem which you will be reading is written a month ago (02-02-09) as I prepare myself for this Holy Season of Lent.The poem is entitled "The Prodigal". I'm assuming that most of us are familiar with the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32).Lent is a time for coming closer to God, a time to return to the very heart of our Father. Though, the point of this poem might have sounded so typical or just another cheesy reflection on the parable and on this Lenten season, this poem is written in a different angle. There's a twist! I wrote this not from the perspective of a Son but from the Father's. Enjoy and feel free to comment. Godbless
Walk now my little child,
Go on and embrace the life you have
Fear no more, for love, to you will guide
Just walk now my little child.
Feel the wind rushing and blowing
Take time in breathing, inhaling, exhaling
Be calm, endure the breeze it’s giving
Just feel the wind rushing and blowing.
Run now my child as if there’s no tomorrow
Leave behind all of your fear and sorrow
Face the sun, its light you have to follow
Just run now my child as if there’s no tomorrow.
Go on, little one, don’t you stop moving
Let the world k now that you are still living
Turn your heads up high, forget about hiding
Just go on, little one, don’t you stop moving.
Take a look; see what you’ve been missing
The birds singing, the earth’s own breathing
Watch the people smiling, the young one’s playing
Just take a look; see what you been missing.
Forward, follow where life can take you
Don’t let hills and rocks hinder you
Let your passion and dream strengthen you
Just forward, follow where life can take you.
A little more and you’ll soon be there
No turning back, don’t let your soul wander
Contain yourself; you know you are no further
Just a little more and you’ll soon be there.
Enter my child, at last you are here
After moments of anticipation, you’ve arrived my dear
The place you once lost, is here to stay forever
Just enter my child, at last you are here.
Come closer, calm down your heavy heart
Smile little one, for you have found the lost part
Don’t be afraid, for we will never be apart
Just come closer, let me calm down your heavy heart.
You’re here, where your love will once again can bloom
No more worries, for here you have your own room
I’ll keep you safe, never be away from my bosom
Welcome back, welcome to the place you once called home.
