Where I stand


Where a man stand will tell how successful he can be. This poetry preaches on looking for a solid base to lay our foundation and build on. The stronger the foundation, the longer the structure stands the test of time.

Where I Stand

At the point of conception,
I spoke out to the far limit,
‘I am greater, born for that top
Where nothing less I choose to choose.

For here I stand. Here I must remain’.
I stand on the peak of hope,
Where tomorrow is seen in the shadow of faith.

I have created truth, love and loyalty,
And built up the strength of an eagle.
As far as my eyes can see,
I have sustained space for this victory.
For I have dined on the table of patience,
I have bought the tabernacle of dedication,
Nothing else can derail this moving train.

My fate should vex no one
For I know not how she was established for my sake.
I am everything I hoped for.
I am still on the journey to the paradise of ‘more.
And lo, where I stand is far beyond the peak of that mountain.
I am far rising above this limit
Challenging man, beast and nature.

No one can stop me now,
For this position is a mystery,
A mystery for the ordinary to comprehend.
Where I stand is on The Solid Rock.

Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands take heed lest he falls

Bible I Corinthians 10:12
