Chasing after the wind – Short Poem


Yesterday she was the one, yet today we call her old news,

And move onto the next one, our values greatly skewed,

Drowning in pornography; consume its views for breakfast,

It brainwashes effectively; makes our decisions reckless,

A false promise of no strings, that leave us feeling worthless,

It’s reach is so deceptive, and messes with our purpose,

One late night browse, one late tired click,

A few hours deep, we’re face-down in a pit.

Once bred behind closed doors, and often late at night,

Today it fills billboards, enticing men to slide,

Now carried in our pockets, it’s even more elusive,

Enemy uses all means; money, sex or music,

And dropping our defences, we’re lured away from God,

Instead of looking to the one, who bore sin at the cross,

Oh Father, please forgive us! Our broken generation,

We’ve turned from your desires, from way back in creation,

But seeing our desperation, you came down as a man,

Humble, weak, and poor; fully God, truly man,

Though tempted in your life, you stood firm in the struggle,

And lived a perfect life; our blueprint, our example.

We still chase after things, and miss out on your goodness,

You didn’t come to condemn, but give life in its fullness,

There is power in Jesus, to free us from addiction,

Free us from our sins, to live life in his freedom,

And though we look relentlessly, in search of life’s best,

Jesus tells us: “Come! And I will give you rest.”

10 Month Review: October 2015

So, its a Thursday and we’re in November. Things feel like they’re slowly coming to an end. As I look back on these past 10 months, my overriding emotion is that of gratitude. I’m thankful to God for my life, my family, friends, work colleagues, etc. I might not always appreciate them the way I should, but he’s placed each one in my life for a reason.

I also wanted to thank you all for your continued support of Reposed Thought. It’s been fun connecting with other like-minded people, who inspire thoughts of inspiration. I’m so excited to see how things progress in the future. I’ve found blogging a fun and refreshing way to de-stress, and a more productive way to spend time online. I’d highly recommend it to anyone.


This months review:

This month hasn’t been as busy on the blogging front unfortunately. It’s been a battle between posting things often and posting for the sake of it. As a result, my creativity has been held back a little, but stay tuned as there’s more stuff to come from my draft folder. In keeping with previous reviews, here’s a look back on all posts from the past month.

Blessings! Gome

S.O. – So It Ends

In the world of Christian hip hop music, the release of S.O’s much anticipated album (so it ends) will be greatly welcomed. Following his previous releases (so it begins, so it continues), the lyrical content has always sought to tell the world about Jesus, and offer an alternatively positive message in hip hop. He’s signed onto the Lamp Mode label whose overall mission is to shine light into a dark world with their music. Have a listen, check the album out on iTunes. I’d highly recommend it (I’ve had a listen). Peace 🙂
