An End Of An ERA, The Dawn Of A New HOPE

A wise old King without a CROWN in Zimbabwe once taught me

My daughter, ‘royalty is the blueprint of God, it’s a calling’

So I sit here today, upset at those who mock the death of a PRINCE

Do not mock what you understand not

Lest the Lord sees it and it displeases Him

Fear God and honour the KING

For it was David who said, touch not his anointed

So at the fall of a King, the Psalmist of Israel mourned

It’s the End of an ERA

As the Iron Duke finally put his hat down

The end of a life well lived

An end of a purpose well sought

A Prince who knew what it meant to be homeless

A Prince who became an orphan when his Ma and Pa still lived

With no penny in his pocket

Or a change of clothes

But still royal blood gushed through his veins

So he arose and stood and searched his calling

A royal Prince born on a kitchen floor

So humble was his first breath

So cruel was life in front of him

Fled his home like Moses, in a cot made from an orange box

A mother’s real love he never knew

For his dear Ma was but a troubled soul

And needed him more

But fate took the Prince away from home

And brought him to the land of hope and glory

He gave up his throne and chose his DESTINY

When the time came, it was destiny over crown

A true love’s first kiss broke the spell

As a beautiful Princess fell in love with the lost Prince

It was the moment the IRON Duke of United Kingdom was born

He had left his home, his people and his Crown

A noble Prince of Britain he became

An honour he earned without seeking a crown

He married a woman who would shine brighter than him

But humbly he stood behind his QUEEN

A rock and fortress to her he became

A wind beneath her wings so strong

So she shone brighter than any STAR of her time

Because the Iron Duke held the candle for her

And allowed her to fly like an Eagle

So go well Oh Duke of Edinburgh

The HOLY city will shine brighter than ever

The bells of Jerusalem will sound again

You served, you conquered and you lived

It’s not just how you ended, but how you began your life journey

Thank you oh Old grand Duke of Edinburgh

Do put your HAT down with Pride Sir

For the life lessons you taught the world

Your story will be told to generations to come

To all races and cultures and peoples

That there lived a man who conquered what life threw at him

And served a people he chose as his destiny

A husband to a Queen

The longest serving British consort in History

A life well lived, a purpose well sought

It may be the END of an ERA for you Oh Iron Duke

But to me your END is a dawn of a NEW HOPE

The Genesis of The Revelation By
