I awoke in a void of deep darkness
Wondering, “Does anyone hear my cry?”
But one day God saw me, poor and needy
As He studied from heaven with his eye.

He lit up my life like the shining sun.
He made me stronger than I thought He would.
He wiped my tears and healed my broken heart;
Anointed me with fragrant agarwood.

He sprinkled my life with piquant spices:
Imported Nutmeg – Exotic Saffron.
And infused my soul with gentle sweetness
Now I am enviously looked upon.

Anti-Hero | Poetry Interlude

Why are you in love with the anti-hero?
I’m not anything to anyone but myself.
I’m only good when I choose to be.
But you are held captive in your affection.

I wonder at my reflection:
Am I the man you need me to be?

If I made you a bouquet
To represent all of me that I’d give you,

I’d start with jasmine. . .
. . . As a beginning to love and romance.

And I’d mix it with neroli blossoms. . .
. . .For a love that’s pure and innocent.

I’d stick rosemary branches on each side. . .
. . .To guard our love with fidelity and remembrance.

I’d garnish it all with vetiver. . .
. . .To keep us grounded when emotions fly.

And then I’d sprinkle it with sandalwood. . .
. . .To always know and trust who I am.

I wonder at my reflection:
Am I the man you need me to be?
Am I the man I need me to be?
