Behind the scene there are a lot of unspoken words,
The part of the Story untold to the crowd.

Behind the scene only few understand,
The truth of the struggle to reach the destiny they have.

Behind the scene the director chooses the best,
The one that will attract market but secure their Pay.

A lot happens behind the scene
But only few sustain the Power it bears.

It remains of importance to have it behind the curtains,
At all costs just for feet that can wear the size.

Unveiling it only when it is safe,
After reaching the cost calculated from the start.

Jesus knew why He died at the Cross,
But stayed with the secret until the Holy Ghost opened our eyes.
Moses at the Mountain conversing with God,
Didn’t tell the purpose until commandments were written.

When in marriage keep things inside the walls of your home,
When in school avoid speaking out things of your mate.

We are trusted for few,
Faithfulness will only upgrade you.
Watch what you see behind the scene.
Be careful not to say it in public.

Love, C.S

Or the black pepper anger

Poured in maximum quantities

Dulling our senses Continue reading

His Ultimate goal being to spread the Message of Christ as the Hope of Glory for all, Elandre strongly believes that if his Music does not have God in it, it is as good as tins making crazy noise.
