Poor village boy (Be inspired today 391 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

What attracts you
To the poor village boy?
Surely, not his poverty;
What is attractive about poverty?
It must be his toughness;
His resilience;
His ability to sail through
The rough,stormy sea of poverty,
To the safe shores of riches;
Braving it through
The fearpacked tunnel of darkness
To the bright land of riches
And success;
His determination;
His faith;
His effort;
And his spirit of perseverance;
To stick to it;
To persist
Are what have installed him
In the ivory tower
Of the esteem of others.
