Cistern of Treasures

A Poem in the Book

Come what may,
to watch and to pray
is what I will chase

Why should I run,
from where I can turn
to get grace for my case?

Why should I wander
from the place of power
because of a fleeting phase?

Is it not to be stronger
that many people seek after?
‘Tis what I will chase!

May not be popular desire
But to keep the fire,
is what I will chase

About the Book

This and the other poems in the book are not your usual flowery language poetry. They seek to speak to you, in simple, accessible language about the realities of our life and our world. Some are inspirational, motivational, insightful, witty and funny; while some others are serious and instructive.

But here’s the deal, each one has a clear and deep message that you can reflect upon; each one is rich in meaning. Like you, I also like variety. And that’s why these poems come in various forms. From rhymes to free-verse and prose poetry, everyone’s covered. Although I have written with a tint of Christian perspective, the topics this collection cover, resonates with every one of us and you should find it a worthy read.
