When I was younger, I loved attending parties, wedding parties, birthday parties, end-of-the-year parties, and Christmas parties, just name it, they all gave me joy. You know, there was always this joy and fulfilment that came with attending parties for me. It was always interesting.
The day gave birth to the night
The moon swagged in the air
In a world full of darkness
Light wraps me up in its flame.
My sanity drove them crazy
My purity brought them harm
They are irritated by my power
Disgusted at my move to empower.
Insult were sent, rumours was brewed
Traps were hidden in places
‘Angel on Earth’, they mocked
Jealousy has eaten deep into them.
Time flipped like pages
My eyes blindfolded with veils
Warm embrace became their culture
All I felt was their heart inflaming with rage.
Since they’ve vowed not to rest
Until they pull me down
My spirit wishes them to see
The light I carry for Christ’s sake.
I pray for grace through the storm
To shine till the very end
My message wrapped in gold is
Light like this, can’t be quenched.

One score and two, United and standing…these tush themes were dancing around in my head till “let it shine” stuck as chewing gum does to cloth.
I don’t know how you hear from God, but I knew this was it when it was it—the final word.
Shining your light might mean doing what others can’t do. You know, we’ve had enough of all those equality talk and blah blah.
Books, novels, comics, academic books…all summed up as books are a necessity to humans, especially you who are reading right now. It doesn’t matter what genre it is, whether self-published or not, it doesn’t even matter if it’s a bestseller or not. Books are great companions in times of solitude.
To me, nothing beats having a tangible book in my hands even though we’re in an age where one can read across many devices. Do you like paperbacks like me? Read paperbacks or, you just can’t stand the burden of carrying big books that would make you look like a nerd?There are books in PDF formats, epub…blah blah. You might even be the all-powerful mom who manages a family and a business, there are audiobooks just for you. You have to make your choice.
