After 50 years the legendary Frank Alcorta receives gallantry award
Best not to believe politicians until we check their facts

Mere Man


An entry in the 2016 Crocodile Prize

I've tried harder and harder to improve
But I'm always convicted, defeated
The course of sin is much at work
As a virus inhabiting a poor soul
Sucking out all the good I try to do

I persist in vain with these shackles
And the yoke, so overpowering
Everywhere I turn, sin is not absent
It dwells in three dimension in the world of living
I am not a perfect folk

I am still climbing this mountain in my weakness
I felt conviction, deep, internally
The deeds I do lack integrity
I struggle to overcome this battle of good against evil
I fought within, without, exposed
Letting go of hatred, greed, 
Embracing forgiveness and love

Yet forgiveness is painful, a thought of my weak soul
I am truly a wrecked ship
Anchored on a reef, waiting, waiting
For a genuine life Saviour.

Lord, I am drowning and lost
In the ocean of life
I need genuine help!
