The Heavenly Calling - Poem by Abossey Allotey

Ev'ry desolate ground, we harrow,
Though constrained on ev'ry way - wide and
Hit by ev'ry weapon: bow and arrow,
Not know'n what await us on the morrow.
One thing we know - joy afta the sorrow.

We ain't d first to be accused,
The fathers b4 us, they abused;
Their preachings - they refused;
More so, their lives, they diffused.

We do not live high and mighty,
But d world sees us guile and guilty,
To them, we are rags and filthy;
They hate us - kill us - sheer cruelty.

In this gospel herein we are charged,
Going all out - God's Kingdom to enlarge.

The truth in our bellies we conceive,
It's from d Lord we receive
And we do no one deceive.

    To see the bigger picture no matter what we have to endure is God's eternal wisdom, to embrace our family and friends and to always show love and kindness on our journey through life, to rise after a fall with God's help.

    These days it's so sad that they are killing Christians,
    yet we know that evil will always be fighting,
    but in the end God must win.
    And so, we are on the winning side.
    May God keeps us all safely everywhere.
    Going all out - God's Kingdom to enlarge
