English is the new Latin

The English language is the Latin of the modern world, because it is one of the most spoken and recognised languages in the world. Everyone speaks English and those who don’t speak it wish to do so, so that they can join the international work force. This mass common language however never happened by accident however and there are a few interesting things I’d like to point out here which is why I am writing this article.
Latin-The language of Rome and the language of one of the first super-powers of the world (so to speak.) Every Nation that that came under the control of the Roman Empire spoke firstly the language of their people and secondly Latin, the language of their conquerors. Why did these people know how to speak Latin when they themselves were not Roman? Because Latin like English was the language of Government and education and in order to climb the social latter and better yourself one must speak Latin.
Because Latin was such a largely understood language of ancient times (along with Greek) and I can say quite confidently that many people who were brought under “Roman protection” probably has some if not fluent understanding of it.
I am even inclined to believe that our Lord while on earth spoke Latin fluently because it mentions in the Bible that Jesus “spoke” with Pilate. It doesn’t say “translated through” but “spoke” with his own mouth to a Roman whom I doubt had any knowledge of Hebrew.
Because of this vast linguistic knowledge, word can spread quite quickly…from village to village and from Nation to Nation. Latin unlike many other ancient languages also had a written script which enabled people to document historical events and transport them over a large amount of space. This perfect storm didn’t happen by accident.
In fact I believe it was created for a purpose…The purpose being that a common language within the world would allow the Gospel of Christ to spread through Jew and Gentile like wild-fire and it did spread very quickly and efficiently through the preaching of the Apostles and others like them. The common language at the time though-Latin is what allowed this to happen and it was for this very purpose Latin was such a common and wide-spread language.
The Empire it belonged to though-Rome was an evil and idolatrous nation. It’s perversion stretched from the Senate to the peasants on the street. Its greed, gluttony and sexual immorality I believe was close to resembling Sodom and Gomorrah…and that is the reason why it fell and was handed over to the Germanic tribes of the North, the Goths, Visigoths and others. I am sure that the day the world heard that their Tyrant was no more shouts of joy could be heard in the heavens…freedom had come again to the world, their enslaver has been enslaved by a Nation that was never conquered by them.
Latin now (although studied) is an extinct language. It fell into ruin and became no more along with the Empire from which it originally came. Only for another language to develop and become a dominant force within the world and that would be English. Whose very origins stem from the people who plummeted Rome. The Germanic tribes.
I doubt that many people give much thought to the history of this little linguistic tale but I find it quite interesting and wish to bring it to note.
The Celtic and Germanic people (which are one and the same) dominated North Western Europe for as long as time began (or should I say since Babel happened.) I won’t go into this evolution/monkey rubbish because that is all an invention of a truly lost and spiritually void man.
These Celtic/Germanic people even though divided by dialectal difference and Clans…they were genetically one people. These people although at war with one another quite often in the end united in order to fight Roman rule in their countries. The Celts (or Gauls) of modern day France were over-taken by Julius Caesar. What he wanted from that country is beyond me but I’m not discussing what motives he had for conquering Gaul…but merely acknowledging that he did. I read later on that Gauls even when under Roman authority were never trusted in Rome and that people considered them to be an “untamed nation”. Untamed meaning that they wanted their freedom.
The Germanic tribes although known to Rome and whom the Romans fought were a people largely untouched by Latin influence. I heard somewhere that the borders of Rome ended once they reached Germany and there literally was a road (all roads lead to Rome etc..e.tc..) that stopped and lead on into the never ending forests of German territory. Because of this European nations went on developing their cultures and languages without the influence of Roman culture and I can safely say that I am sure our Norse, Slav and far North Celtic ancestors never knew what a Roman was let alone fought them or spoke Latin.
These untouched people (so to speak) could not be converted to Christendom…through the Latin language and indeed they weren’t because Northern Europe were some of the last people of the Western world to be converted. The Vikings being pagan as late as the 10th century AD.
There clearly needed to be another common language that could be fluently understood by all people from every walk of life. This language would be English and even though in its infancy Old English would only have been understood and spoken by its speakers the Anglo-Saxons; It was to become the ancestor of English and the language of another super-power the British Empire whose borders (like Rome) spread across the world and whose language people strived to attain.
So here we have another vast, commonly spoken language with a written script in which the Gospel and truth of Jesus Christ can be spread. This cannot be ignored. The purposefulness of this. Latin was the language used to convert the ancient world as English will be the language used to convert the modern. Latin and Rome is dead…its influence is forgotten. English has taken over it the way the Germanic tribes took over Rome and it is through English that people will bring souls to God because it has become the Latin of the modern World and one of the most spoken languages of our time.

Jamie’s Girl

Aye! I’m Jamie’s girl! To him I wish the world.

My thought’s at day are of him, my prayers are for his care!

It twas that day in April when my mind was in a whirl,

I met a man so lovely it sent my world into a twirl!

Both of us so tortured by our demons so possessed.

We could only tell each other-we were the calm to our unrest.

Ah! I’m Jamie’s girl! To him I wish the world.

My thought’s at day are of him, my prayers are for his care!

Song’s of love and laughter filled my teenage mind as Jamie’s jokes

so jolly-dried the tear drops from my eyes.

I never would have drempt it, that this world it made for me

a man so full of passion that fit me perfectly.

Ah! I’m Jamie’s girl! To him I wish the world.

My thoughts at day are of him, my prayers are for his care!

Alas! I love this laddie…he is mine to keep but tears I shed

in worry that to him I’ll never reach.

For an ocean it divides us and our troubles still so strong,

the day when we see eye to eye tis’ true may never come.

This man I love so deeply, in dreams that I adore,

shall never be with nor near me, to keep me safe or warm.

And I do fear my arms will be empty all my life, for after meeting him,

I’ll greet nae…my soul shall never touch nae-one ever again!

Aye! I’m Jamie’s girl! To him I wish the world.

My thoughts at day are of him, my prayers are for his care!

Last Night’s Dinner

Last night I had my dinner;
It was afraid of me…as I cut into my steak it ran red blood-LIKE ME!!!
And while I ate I heard it’s cries, I felt it’s sorrow and pain and guilt, regret and
bitter remorse slowly filled my veins.
How was his last moments, was it a girl or boy, when was he born, did his Mother scorn
like our Mother’s do us? Did he feel happy, did he cry and did he laugh…was it his Mother’s name he called
when the Butchers blade did slash?
 
How is it ever justified to bring into this world a life, knowing that before he’s born, he’ll suffer, moan and die?
How can we live with ourselves when throughout the day we devour the carcases of someone’s body away?
It is their blood we split, and upon our hand’s it stains. Eating meat is madness now in the modern age!
 
As I finished dinner, I went home to pray asking God’s forgiveness for the life I ate away!
The Master never intended His creations to be meat, to be enjoyed on someone’s plate, to be called
juicy, delicious or sweet! Never again shall I indulge on someone who once breathed, who once was just as loved by God as God loves me.
Last night I had my dinner;
It was afraid of me…as I cut into my steak it ran red blood-LIKE ME!!!

These Eyes

When I look into my eyes…I see the tears of millions cry;

the poor, the hungry, the misunderstood, the banished, the brave,

the lost souls who died during the famine, the clearances, the killings,

all of their pain is still in my suffering.

Do we really get over the evils of the past? Does the damage done to our forefathers within our fibers last? Why do I feel so deeply for a land I’ve never been? Why do I weep when I hear the pipes sing a mournful tune to me?

Does somewhere in my soul recall the pain of starvation and lost when the coffin ships came? Does somewhere in this young heart of mine remember the murders, rapes and misdeeds done to those so long ago? Does somewhere in my memory does revenge and hatred grow-for those whom I’ve never known.

When I look into my eyes…I see the tears of millions cry.

the poor, the hungry, the misunderstood, the banished, the brave,

the lost souls who died during the famine, the clearances, the killings,

all of their pain is still in my suffering…because what is left of those millions

are these eyes of mine!

Only For Tonight

It is only for tonight my dear wipe away your tears. 
Your pain is done, your battles won-don’t repeat your fears.
Darling girl you’ve cried so much throughout the night you’ve shed 
and in the day your pain does stay and your guts how have they bled.
Those vile thoughts of grand temptation of tasty treats and sweet delights,
but alas! Those few nibbles and shallow bites will make you wish you dead. 
Too many nights you’ve spent in terror thinking about the demons, while waiting for the hell that comes and feeling so forsaken. 
 
Tonight I know you’ve fallen but its only for tonight my dear,
wipe away your tears for a lesson is taught with each mistake and
a LESSON is LEARNED TONIGHT my dear!

The End

And so this is the end?
I knew I’d never win,
the choice to sink or swim…
the waters deep.
I held my breath and ne’er
a soul did speak.
And so this is the end?
I knew that there and then,
a life in vain I’ve wasted,
and anguish I have tasted…
now death is but a whim.
And so this is the end?
Hope here it seems dim,
mine whimsy’s caving in and
I’ve fallen to despair.
AYE, ALAS! You’ve met me there,
the fate foretold to me
blinded to all others, they
just couldn’t see.

To Mother

Your love is mine and it is finely tuned, like a delicate instrument I am yours to groom.

Your breath and your soul is what my heart adores and without you I’d vanish like a fading flower. You’re mine and you’re thine and your whom I do sing, every lyric I write to your joy I hope to bring.

The heavens created me, the form God did give to delight and to brighten your day to day whims. I am ne’er to to live a life of my own, don’t you see I’m your doll your one and true own! The pale porcelain portrait,the girl with no age, forever she’s waiting to play all your games and when you’ve grown tired of the doll that was given, she’ll shrink and shrivel and go back to heaven.
