The Plank of A Nation (6.2.09)

“A nation should rejoice in celebration of its birth.

A nation should know of the purpose for its creation.

A nation should be grateful for a history with a Lion.

A nation’s plank of creation should be an object of thanksgiving,

                                              should uplift the peoples thereby committed,

                                              should give security of tenure.

A nation’s plank of creation holds a vision for the future,

                                              has signatures bound in agreement,

                                              has brevity with wisdom,

                                              has hope laced with trust,

                                              has sharing of resources that neither favour nor deprive.

A nation’s plank of creation is the start of a new beginning.

           The journey of a nation never follows a straight path.

           The rearward glance at a nation’s footsteps is there for all to see.

           The rearward glance slows a forward journey,

                                             causes a conference of souls,

                                             spreads missions of dissent.

The creation planks of nations rarely have splinters at their birth.

The creation planks of nations are hacked at by the greedy,

                                                 are whittled by the wily.

The creation planks of nations are spliced for expansion,

                                                 are bonded to abstraction.

The creation planks of nations are later heard to utter what the tongues of the signatures never spoke when signing.

The creation plank of a nation is not open to re-interpretation when the journey’s well begun.

The creation plank of a nation is to be honoured without equivocation.

The creation plank of a nation does not change according to discoveries,

                                                                            according to the self-aggrieved,

                                                                            according to the benefits that fall into the hands that labour.

The creation plank of a nation does not fluctuate in intent because of more recent values.

The creation plank of a nation is not to be splintered to rejection,

                                                 is not to be splintered born through malice,

                                                 is not to be splintered born through murmuring from those with their own agendas.

           A nation cannot be of one voice if the plank of its creation is later filled with splinters of injustice.

                      The journey of a nation is as according to the divisions of man.

                      The forward glance at a nation’s future encourages a vision made known.

                      The forward glance shines as a light on a way of life with wonders,

                                                      speeds all to a common goal,

                                                      brings unity of purpose not easily distracted.

The creation plank of a nation is steeped in hallowed ground.

The creation plank of a nation speaks to the present of the past,

                                                 speaks to the present of the future,

                                                 makes possible a vision on a tablet for the herald with which to run.

The creation plank of a nation speaks of The God that first invested in a plank,

                                                                                that invested in the builder of the nations,

                                                                                that was invested with due reverence within the lives of those who knew.

The creation plank of a nation should not be readily overturned.

The creation plank of a nation stood before the faces of men who swore that it was so.

The creation plank of a nation stands before The God who witnessed it and knows.”
