Wellington Chiobvu’s dream is to be a writer, a poet to be precise. He is a creative and his prose comes from the heart.

A Village of Hope

During the formative years of Wellington’s life, his love of words was honed through the Village of Hope in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Education, training and opportunity provided by the VoH helped propel Wellington into a future of possibilities. Jocelyn and I sponsored Wellington for eleven years through a program called, Child Care Plus.

In June 2016, Wellington turned 16-years old. He wrote to us about his dream: to see his poems published on the internet.

Like any proud family members, we wanted to help Wellington’s dream come true. Every dreamer deserves a platform.

REVwords isn’t world famous, but it is a platform. Together we can make a difference. Do what you can to share Wellington’s dream. Read three of his poems and share this post on your social media outlets.wellington dream

Stop Falling My Tears

Things happen for a reason

Do not fall my tears

You broke my heart when

You fall.

Sometimes you

Fall with anger that

You cannot accept.

You are a one of a kind thing

That God created to comfort.

You comfort me and lead

Me in the right path.

Even when I am in trouble you

Give me hope

Tears, tears, tears

Fall with hope

Tears fall with happiness

You the best

Now stop falling my tears.

Why Not Me God?Wellington diamond

Why not me God

I cry everyday for Your presence

In my life

I wish to have a long

Life and keep my family

God why not me

Take me and make

Me as Your servant

Use me and bless me God.

Things come without

Warning but You know.

Why, why, why not me

Give me the same wisdom

That You gave to Solomon

And make me great

I thank You

The Golden Sun

Wellington sunriseWhen I look at you every morning

I Smile. You rule the day.

You are the best.

You shine with power over my life.

I wonder how God made you.

You rule my life and shine with hope.

Your light gives me hope.

Thank you for your light

And the new day you give me.

Thank you golden sun for your light

You are one of a King

You are unique.

You are sophisticated in all ways.

You are my hope for my future

Thank you for your light everyday

You give me light to learn

New things and experience the world.

I love you the golden sun.

    I love the second poem (Why Not Me God). It touched my heart – as a Psalm. Very well written 🙂

  • bob jones says:

    Thank you, Susan!

  • Bonnie says:

    Pastor Bob you must be very proud of Wellington. I would like to share the first poem with a young man that grew up in the orphanage in Mexico and is now pursuing his dream to become a worship leader. He is a musician and writes songs. I think that the tears poem would make a beautiful song.

  • bob jones says:

    That would be awesome, Bonnie. Kindness and generosity go a long way.

  • Shirley Bidnick says:

    These are lovely heartfelt poems, beautiful expressions of well controlled emotions. I can’t help but think Wellington has tremendous potential. I pray that God will give him the opportunities he needs to develop his talent and succeed.

  • CD Mayo says:

    So very beautiful! It is truly a blessing to read that you feel like family to Wellington. I feel the same way about the boys we sponsor. We speak of them and wonder how their days are going.

  • bob jones says:

    Great to be a sponsor, eh? Enlarging our families and our hearts. Thank you for reading and commenting, Calay!

  • Wellington says:

    Thanks everyone for helping me

  • Bob Jones says:

    You are welcome Wellington. I’m glad you read the post. Keep on writing and dreaming and trusting God.

  • Shaan Hagglund says:

    Loved reading your poems Wellington and was very pleased to learn of your dream of becoming a writer like Pastor Bob. What a noble career to choose to speak through the alphabet and pen to paint a picture in the mind of a reader. I would like to share a writer’s work with you who inspires me to read more. F.w.Boreham. His work called A box of blocks is one of my favorites. I hope you read it and it speaks to you as a writer and a Christian…..
