“What a battle He had in us before we would be won! How long He laid siege to our hearts! How often He sent us terms of capitulation! But we barred our gates, and fenced our walls against Him. Do we not remember that glorious hour when He carried our hearts by storm? When He placed His cross against the wall, and scaled our ramparts, planting on our strongholds the blood-red flag of His omnipotent mercy? Yes, we are, indeed, the conquered captives of His omnipotent love.” – Charles Haddon Spurgeon

In light of National Poetry Day (UK), we thought it would be appropriate to share a piece with our readers by a regular contributor at RAAN, Quina Aragon. The piece is written and performed by Quina. “Battle” is the first spoken word piece on Quina Aragon’s free spoken word project “The Eternal Saga of the Saints” which can be heard and read at music.quinaishidden.com
