If you’re wise (Be inspired today 373 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

You look at the sky
To see the clouds,
Not at the ocean
Where you can only see
Their shadow;
If you’re grown up,
Do as grown ups do;
A bee goes to a flower
To suck nectar,
Not to its shadow
In the mirror;
To be a Roger Milla ,
Gird your loins
And do what you should;
You cannot climb
The rungs of a ladder
Standing on the spot;
Or with your hands
In your pockets.
If you’re wise,
Do what you should;
You will be rewarded.
