The Breath of Life- Guest Post

We have our very first guest blogger at Agape. Adam aka Aashith. I got to know Adam through our blogs. He has 2 blogs Lyrical Melancholy and Thoughts...An attempt at understanding ourselves. Both are an intense expression of himself, one through lyric, the other through verse. He has also written an interesting book, do check it out here. This incredibly talented writer has contributed two wonderful posts to Agape, one in lyric the other in verse. Here's the first post-
It's truly a privilege to have you at Agape Adam!
Job 33:4

"The Spirit of God has made me;
the breath of the Almighty gives me life"

I lived in a time of fear whence,

My wisdom was in abeyance.

It is now I tread in absence of fear,

Wiser that He walks beside me here.

From dust to dust, the truth - an adage,

Molded in form to His own image,

The life He has given can see no real death,

A Life that is not just the passage of breath.

In valleys of shadows, in alleys of dark,

Wisdom ensues His words, akin a spark

That lights a million lamps, all at once,

He shines forth his light on all my runs.

Today I arise to the sounds of the fall,

Chirps and rustles bind them all,

His breath, my life; He will keep giving,

Return to dust I will, but keep on living.

The Breath of Life


  1. Thank you for your kind words Shirley. All the best for your Agape Series!

  2. Lovely Post! Everything that Job may have felt is expressed beautifully. I especially love the way the essence of some of my favourite psalms is captivated succintly.
    Fantastic Adam!!!!! Very few think of creation and the whole process of illumination as you have brought out so well.
    Waiting for the next post!!!!!
