I hear you calling, from a place, i vaguely remember...
Memories shoved way down low... push up, try to sprout...
My pride... denies... green shoots to thrive...
The succulent dies... 'neath my vigorous strut...

Come and play... life is but a day...
No worries mate... she's a hot date...
I shine brighter than a million suns...as long as the silver runs...

Take care my son... with whom you run...
Urgh!! there it is again! i said i'm away!
How far must i run, to be unfettered from His rung...?
Let me alone! i must find a home! out there, away from your stare...!

This ore is running low; perhaps i'll try to sow...
Now the land is cursed... by the million sun strength...
Of a life spent... away from His Grace...

'Neath my toes, i see some green peas...
Not for me... tho' the swine are fine...
How did i arrive here?... lower than the unclean...
Where did i go wrong?... who played me like a song?...
It's me... i now see... selfish & self centered, oh Lord, hear my plea...

I sense a long forgotten form... drawing me, to my home...
I set out, upon my knees... to ashamed to ride on high...
I follow His Voice, leading me to that vaguely familiar place...

From a great distance, you see my shamed face...
Oh Father, Father!... i feel your embrace...
Oh, i am so ashamed,so sorry, so shamed...
Your breathing is heavy, your heart beats fast...
Oh, how i hope this moment will last...
My son, my son... how wonderful! you're home...
I love you more than you know!

Break out the Bread and the Wine...
And let's party, Holy Reunion Style!!

I've read through all the poems that you have posted, so far. There is power in the words you choose that tug on emotions.
Wole Oladapo 17 Apr 2010
Many a time our souls within us prodigalled around the streets of doubts and fears, but the daily whisper of Christ's love does lead our strayed souls back to our Shepherd. God is still busy calling prodigals home. Thanks a lot.
