May the abundant grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, his peace which transcends all understanding, and his unfeignedly extravagant love preserve us in his righteousness through all the storms, joys and beauties of life in Jesus name. Amen!


INSPIRATION: MY next goal after putting the sonnet in my closet is to write a #Limerick, challenging myself to to explore the different poetic forms. The biggest challenge is that limerick is a 5-line poem with a rhyme scheme AABBA which has an introduction to a person or character, their battles and a concluding line that shows some sort of triumph or current situation.

This then presents an excellent opportunity to summarize my one-generation on the planet and as a precious clay in the hand of no mean potter in 5 lines.


I know a young man called MR.CHRISLOVE

Born and raised Christian yet without Love

Spent adolescence as an alcoholic

Bullied into low self-esteem, rejection and vitriolic

Grown up to be a teetotaler, community leader, inspired writer, and an ambassador of Love.

Buy More Junks?

At the grocery store today
I made up my mind to live healthy
But the first item in my cart is a junk.
Like new year resolutions
So died away my brave decision.
It felt like I was in the middle of January
Living in last year I thought I have crossed over
But I ain’t disappointed just a little remorseful.
I got the power to live healthy
But the store is more willing to sponsor my old life.
Junks are almost twice cheaper,
Dressed so fashionable and attractive

Well, D.O.G said the “old man” is always very attractive
And I see the goodnews sounding so unpleasant
Should I give excuses and return to my past?
Now I’m in front of the cashier
Pay for my pride and go with the junk
Or swallow my pride and tell her to take it off?
Now the game has many players
Many are they increased that trouble to keep me stagnant
Or if freedom is given, to regress

I now have many regressively reasonable grounds to give up.
Like Bro Adam in the Garden of Eden
So stood I at the counter starring at the junk food.
But I remember the words of MR.CHRISLOVE

“When there is no reason reasonable enough to excuse your inadequacies, success becomes your inevitable

And I remember that excuses didn’t exempt Bro Adam from the punishment.
So I munch up much courage to tell the cashier
Sadly I had to explain that again to her.
It didn’t feel good to her
Looking like a poor guy who couldn’t pay for all he wanted.
But I’m proud that I beat both my pride
And the good looking & attractive junk
And took the road I less trodden.
As I am concluding this write-up, I am eating noodles combined with mixed veggies.
I know it sounds so minute but I’m glad that unlike Adam, I overcome my temptation 😂🙏👏 👏 👏

If I can overcome my craving for junk, I am very confident that YOU CAN OVERCOME ANY TEMPTATION, PRIDE AND ANYTHING THAT WANT TO HOLD YOU BACK!


Thanks for stopping by,



Over the years,

I tried expressing myself in my heart.

But my heart is only known by me.

I spoke with my mentor,

Mentor said I have to express it in language.

But I’m sure you will not understand my language.

I thought of showing you signs,

But you are not a Jew.

Constrained by my vocabulary prowess,

I tried using English words

But words cannot truly express my heart.

And words are only meaningful

To those to whom understanding is given.

Even when I gather words to say it,

My meaningful words are meaningless to you

Because your heart is not connected with mine.

Wait! You understand my heart

And you are making me go through this agony?

My dear love, but you know that

If I have eternity on earth,

I will spend a million years playing scrabble or crossword.

But even the King get only a thousand years.

Hope you see eternity is calling

And we have to yield the fruits.

I cannot say that I have fallen in love with you

Because loving you is not a temptation that I succumbed to.

If it was so, I probably would have risen again even the seventh time.

Loving you is an integral part of my life.
That’s why I only see myself growing in love for you.
Maybe the metamorphosis is yet to be completed.

There seems to be a million miles between our hearts

But I hope that Love will bridge the gap before perfection.
