Poem – God Bless Texas – Standing strong against Harvey By Emeka Chiakwelu

God Bless Texas – Standing strong against Harvey
By Emeka Chiakwelu

A meddling dew night
Disastrous darkness shrouded in duplicity
Destabilizing wind deepen with wrecking flood

But what are you?
Wind, rain and Yes a flood – a voracious evil
Multidimensional devilish character

Houston is in its place – beautiful and evergreen
So is our Texas
A beauty that beckons the singing of angels
Then the enemy came

Roaring like a mountain lion
It came as a wind
It came as rain
It came as flood

Our LORD set a bulwark
Because whom our LORD has blessed cannot be cursed
Creating a bulwark against the enemy
Texas triumphed – Yes Houston shines
We came to together to defeat the enemy

Spirit of Texas simmering, glowing
Lone star energy – wax stronger
Yes! Love of freedom capacious

As the root endures
and leaves blossom on embrace of Texas sunshine
God bless Texas and Houston – the strong one!
