Naive Sovereigns

Naive Sovereigns

Naïve Sovereigns

Sad, broken and depressed I felt. 
On dead streets full of hopelessness, 
I walked. 
A hole here, a tear there, I see

That man with a sack full of holes, losing 
precious seeds every step
That woman has an issue of blood, 
she will not last the night
That young boy bearing a load too 
great for his fragile back, no one 
could help
That young girl embedded in darkness 
so dense, a knife could cut through

Who is in charge here? 
Are there helpers around?

I see the cruel taskmaster now, 
he is insane
He delights in woes, he ruled with 
an iron fist
He eats the slaughtered as food and 
the tears of his captives? 
That is his favorite thirst-quencher 

The naive sovereigns brainwashed 
into captivity by a nonentity named “Sin”
Woeful stories of devastation and 
destruction, typical in every place in 
sin’s domain 
This is the normal in a world full of 

We are a people in need a deliverer, 
I thought

A mile walk and there goes a man 
wrapped in majestic aura. 
He must be the son of a king
Two miles away strolls a beautiful 
woman with neck and hands draped 
in expensive jewels of joyfulness. 
Her presence commands authority, 
she must be a queen.
Another mile and I beheld a young 
boy with sparkling apparel ecstatically 
playing a tune on his flute. 
He must be an angel
Two miles away, here comes a 
dainty young girl oozing gracefulness, 
at her approach all impurities on the 
street disappeared. 
She must be a cherub

Who are these people? 
They looked typical yet so striking 
and fascinating. 
Divine entities esteemed by celestial beings 

A melody flittered into my heart 
It aroused  a nostalgic feeling of an 
abode entrenched in my eternity. 
A harmony loud, like the rhythm of 
a gigantic heart beating for love. 
An infinite kingdom, such effulgence! 
Distant nonetheless nigh. 
Beautiful nevertheless indulgent. 
I belong there, my heart screamed
Fear arose like a tempest, it tried 
to stop me. 
Worries raged like a ceaseless blizzard, 
willing me back into the abyss. 
I do not belong here, my head whispered. 
I am broken, dismayed, and rejected.   

Then I saw Him. 
The One sitting on the throne as 
dazzling as brilliance. 
The radiance of an emerald encircled 
His throne like a rainbow. 
I saw love! 
My steps hastened by Mercy towards 
Then He smiled and opened His 
arms wide. 
I fell in love! 
A filthy me in the arms of the 
Distinguished King? Can it be? 
Then I looked at "me" through 
the eyes of Adonai. 
Arrayed in white with a magnificent 
crown on my head and a scepter of 
power in my hand?
 Where is my mess? 
Where is the brokenness? 

The King loves me! 
Out to the highways I ran, 
to the dead I called. 
Adonai wants them all. 
One came, thousands came, 
and billions came, into the kingdom 
of Yahweh an endless army trooped
Power changed hands. 
The taskmaster kicked out, the 
unending sovereignty of the ones 
delivered commenced 

Note: The love of the Father awaits you. 
He loves you just as you are. Come to 
Jesus today. He wants to love you. 
He will make you the King He has 
destined you to be. Come into His 
love now.
