NAME: MADU CHINELO 

WHO IS LIKE GOD

 

Mother recounts the innocence,

the purity my new eyes bore

Father talks of the enchanting flow

of joy in the labor room when I cried

Which shall I say is the reason

that I earned a question for a name?

 

My name echoes in the whispers

of a yellow leaf to the bumblebee

It resounds in the distance

where children dance naked

to raindrops on parched roofs

The maze on each finger print

describes a precision unrivalled in creation

And when I stop to think of the Creator

all logic and reasoning fail me

Who is like God?

 

Once I stood on the porch

Lost in the chill of breeze and bad days

The street lay dark and silent

And the clouds seemed also encumbered 

by my heart's full gloom

Boom! a flash of dazzling cracks

Like fireworks in the vast grey sky

With thunder bellowing again

Who is like God?

 

In that brief ecstatic moment 

With closed eyes and deep sighs

I paused to contemplate this wonder, 

this very subtle reminder 

That for my name,

 No answer suffices

 

 

 

 

 

NAME: CHUKWUEMEZIE FRANKLYN CHIEMEZIE

 

I woke up in the morning to admire the sunrise

How beautiful are your creations

I can’t but admire your good deeds

Then I asked, Who Is like God?

 

The tranquility that transcends beyond

The radiant star of the sea

From the unknown, it brightens the day

The heavens are telling the glory of God

The wonders of his work displays his firmaments

You lived before inception to ages of eternity

 

Echoes of Happiness, I hear

Lines of smiles greets me

Bouts of joy astir me

Cloud of peace prevail over me

In you I found joy and happiness

And I tend to say, who is like God?

 

 

In my prayers I encounter you

You always assure me that someone is listening

Who understands and knows my intent even from the start

The hopes and fears that fills my heart

But many times my heart finds sudden peace and rest

Because I have a God who cares

 

Day by day, God walks with me

And my burden he helps to bear

Each step I take along the way

My loving father is always there 

In the entire universe, no one is like God 

 

 

 

NAME: Ebenezer Mikwene Mowete

 

WHO IS LIKE GOD?

God of fire, Love’s fierce radiance,

Drive through the deep until the steep waves part,

You have undone the dragon’s sinuous influence,

And pierced the clotted darkness in my heart,

You have dispelled the despair you found there, you have broken the spell,

And overthrown the tyrannies of Hell.

Who is like God?

 

God chose for chief, his champion Michael,

When as the prince of angels puffed with pride,

stirred his seditious spirits to rebel,

God gave Michael charge the host of Heaven to guide,

This dragon since let loose, God’s church assailed,

and she by help of Michael’s sword prevailed.

Who is like God?

 

God, I see Your tender love in all the things around me,

With blessings that I cannot count, with grace beyond all measure,

I feel your comfort when I'm down, and know that You surround me,

With mercy that I don't deserve, with things that bring me pleasure,

May I be used in some small way to teach Your grace and glory,

Help me to show the world Your love, to spread salvation's story.

Who is like God?
