In the throne room with him

In wonder, for what do I have in me
what are the promises I treasure and keep
In wonder, how do one receive salvation?
what do I have to deserve the throne?

The promises i received i kept it within
embedded in my heart forever i will sing
I was lured to deception and temptation
but I have built my foundation from stone

When storms come, I stood still
When the consuming fire burns, Im in peace
When the enemies attack, I have salvation
Behold, know the word that I praise, I only rejoice

I am just a mere flesh with a willing spirit
my only desire is to be forever with Him
I think of His steadfast love with adoration
I think of the day He comes with a sword

It might seem dim but He’s renewing everything
Finally, I’ll be in the throne room with him
I’ll keep singing beautiful songs
Forever, I’ll lean on Him all day long

The promises i received i kept it within
embedded in my heart forever i will sing
I think of His steadfast love with adoration
I think of the day He comes with a sword

It might seem dim but He’s renewing everything
Finally, I’ll be in the throne room with him
I’ll keep singing beautiful songs
Forever, I’ll lean on Him all day long

Relentless Woman

This is a woman i want to be
a relentless one
She knows what her identity is
in the eyes of God

No one gives her insecurity
For she never crash
In the past, she failed miserably
Now, she’s towards God

Relentless woman only flourish
She knows what’s true love
She knows it’s not about the physique
but clinging to God 

At night, she speaks through her tears and grieve
From mourning, joy comes
Her identity’s securely sealed
For she pursue God

This is a woman i want to be
a relentless one
She knows what her identity is
in the eyes of God

To the relentless woman i will be
For I pursue God
I can only say nothing but cheers
For I see the light

Be Patient

When I look at my past
all I can see is wrath
all I can see is dark
Oh for who’s fault but mine?

I write my heartaches
and burst out my anger
the dangers of rage
Oh when will I be patient?

When I look at me now
my heart is still undone
Oh when will i run back
like the prodigal son?

Silent at this moment
A whisper from heaven came
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
In your affliction, be patient

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

Heart starts to beat louder
From the heavens,
A gushing flame of fire
Behold, reap the harvest

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

Stand firm on your faith
Know that I am able
In your life, it will be evident
the prophecy, always remember

I choose the time
Rush of wind from above
It is I, It is I
The one and only Alpha

In your affliction, be patient
In your test, be patient
In your challenges, be patient
But in everything, pray

~ M. Salonga

Together Forever

Your love overtakes
it feels like heaven

All of my days
your name will be praised

You are my secret place
my safe place

To lean in your chest
Oh this experience

The love in my veins
I cannot contain

Nothing can separate
We’re together forever

From faith to faith
Always growing stronger

In my weakness
You are my help

How could I forget?
When you saved the day

What can I say?
I am speechless

For your love overtakes
it feels like heaven

All of my days
your name will be praised

You are my secret place
my safe place

To lean in your chest
Oh this experience

The love in my veins
I cannot contain

Nothing can separate
We’re together forever

~M. Salonga

Until only you are seen

Have been humbled for a while
Seen my own iniquities
But here I am still alive
With such wanting and longing

To be deeply in love
Until only you are seen
have our lives intertwined
To keep my heart steady

Wandering in the oceans
Persevering and waiting
I don’t understand it now
but soon, it will be revealed

Have some patient little one
as you have said in my sleep
For you know Im still undone
So I trust your artistry

The slow moving of the sun
Makes me thirsty, Makes me seek
Process me in the desert land
Until only you are seen

To my dearest one above
In the process of waiting
Let it all fade away & be gone
Until only you are seen

~M. Salonga

Anchored

I have been tossed by the waves of emotions to and fro
I was lost in the sea of confusions and the unknown
In the life of fear, I have made horrible decisions
The tears that was shed, grieved for the sake of my own soul

Hear my mourning for I need a champion out of Sodom
Blinded by my own depression hoping for tomorrow
I offer this empty life for im nothing and alone
Going back to the source of salvation and redemption

In my anguish and cries, the heavens responded a roar
the champion of heavens rescued me out in the lowest point
From resuscitation to redemption, one, two, three, four
A new heart started beating, A new heart has been bestowed

As I get up on my feet, I did blow the loudest horn
I could see it coming down, my own walls of Jericho
All I could see, unending opportunities and hope
To my champion, I will remain and strongly anchored

For my champion listened and responded with action
For he loved me in my darkest and lowest and gave his all
For he swam down the confusions and showed his favour
To my champion, I will remain and strongly anchored

#NeverLettingGoNoMatterWhat

When we finally walk away

Inhale Exhale, Inhale Exhale
Look at him one last time
begging a glimpse of his face
but my mind stood the ground

letting go and walking away
reminding myself never again
from all the pain I‘ve felt
craving to find my soul again

For chances were given
Convincing myself to stay
trying to fix whats already broken
taken for granted once again

The power of courage took over
has made me stronger than ever
Saving myself from heartbreak
To finally give my heart a break

~M. Salonga

Life is an Ongoing Recovery

Wanting our hearts to heal
To live a life of milk and honey
But this life’s full of shit
A place where rest is a sin

Life’s an ongoing recovery
Face all kinds of pain everyday
To cry, pray, and think
laying down in the bed broken

Shouting to the heavens
with so much trust and faith
To let the winter end
and may summer rise again

Time will tell us when
the pain would go far away
A notebook and pen
A companion to depend for days

To be angry or to be happy
feelings in a roller coaster ride
This is truly damaging
for our little fragile minds

Wanting our hearts to heal
To live a life of milk and honey
But this life’s full of shit
A place where rest is a sin

Life’s an ongoing recovery
Face all kinds of pain everyday
To cry, pray, and think
laying down in the bed broken

Shouting to the heavens
with so much trust and faith
To let the winter end
and may summer rise again

~M. Salonga

Loving someone broken

We fall in love with vulnerability
Not aware that it can painfully kill
We see the good but afraid to see it all
so when we jump we lost it all

Loving someone broken is truly a challenge
for we never know what might happen
ending up both confused and depressed
Not knowing leads to both wreckage

Many issues are tackled and confronted
Solving problems by flowers
Many issues came back over and over again
Discovering flowers aren’t the answer

A shattered glass wounds the fixer
accidentally cutting himself
Loving someone broken
Loving by carrying the burdens

We all fall in love with vulnerability
Not aware it can painfully kill
We know how this story ends
both lead to their death

~M. Salonga

Memorable Hong Kong

You were so memorable Hong Kong
You somehow help me moved on
to the things I can’t let go of
I have traveled to many attractions

I thank, how it somehow moved the pain away
when I booked the tickets right away
with my family who would love me in any way
and who would be there for me anywhere

You were so memorable Hong Kong
I get to see lots & enjoyed the most
I would cherish this amazing joy
even when I am already at home

Friend that Listens

This is for our friend that listens
listens to all the pain and sorrows
Being burnt and hurt in most events
can make a blood to boil

Adorations and exaltation
For their patience is astounding
Realisation and Appreciation
For having them is a gift

A word not even uttered
yet the heart stays overwhelmed
knowing that my voice is heard
Help that gave my heart a rest

Shoutout to our friend that listens
We were unwell and they run and came
We’re grateful for their care and love
They did not know they have saved a life

I fell in love with Melbourne

I fell in love with its beautiful streets
and happy with the company I keep
If it weren’t for these peeps
I would face the journey feeling lonely
with such big fears
So for this peeps I love, Cheers 🍻
We did some drinkin
We did some big shoppin
We did some roadtrippin
We did some food explorin
We did some sight seeings
Oh Melbourne, you weren’t in my list
But I can say you’d be truly miss
Took some pics and bought some gifts
You’ll forever stay in my memory ❤️

I Need You Still

On the run feeling numb

For I am losing the sun

Slowly losing my breath

Just trying to do my best

My eyes filled with tears

Self-pity and overthinking

All these demons in my head

Here I am, frightened

Know that I need you still

I try to keep myself still

I hope you remember

the love we spent and dreamt

We used to live for tomorrow

Chasing after our own rainbow

Now we’re just strangers

In a place called nowhere

You have always seen me

You have always loved me

Know that I need you still

I try to keep myself still

Monsters are now my companion

No ones going to catch when I fall

I only see a beautiful dead end

If I live, the only fool is myself

For every memory crushes me

I can only hear broken symphonies

My beating heart hurts like hell

I’m just pining for death, my friend

~ M. Salonga

Write My Cries

I cried one at night

I cried waking up

Praying loud to God

To help me stand up

or just end my life

All i see is black

For there is no love

I could think of mom

my last straw to life

but were miles apart

Alone in the dark

with my thoughts & mind

so i write it up

my way to survive

I am a Christian

might be in the light

but my sight is blind

or mind filled with clouds

Keep moving forward

says my little heart

Just please write it up

a way to survive

says my little heart

~ Marianne Salonga
