Only a few

Yesterday was not
My best day;
Take note!
I have not said
It was a bad day;
I only say
It wasn’t
My best day;
Ask me what I mean;
I will tell you;
Many things;
Only a few things
As I expected;
Only a few;
Let’s end here.
But my spirits
Remain strong;
I will not crumble;
The load of discouragement
Will not stop me;
I will keep my head up;
And keep going;
Till my destination.


My footprints

If you want
To pass here unnoticed,
Like a thief slipping in
Through a side door,
You are free to do so;
You make your choice;
You do as you like;
As for me,
I won’t go that way;
That is not my destiny;
It’s the wrong road for me.
To go unnoticed
Is not like me;
To throw myself in mud?
And get my body soiled?
I refuse with all my energy;
I will stamp my feet
On the ground;
And make the world
Know I am there;
I will rock the boat;
And make a loud noise.
Why should I tiptoe,
When I can leave
My foot prints in bold,
On the dust of time.
I am not a lamb;
I am a lion;
I will roar,
Be it in the valley
Or the hill.
I will play my role.

Are you determined?

Who is determined
Like me?
Who can be determined
Like me?
I am determined;
So determined;
Extremely determined;
I am determined
To make it big;
I am determined
To shine;
I am determined
To be a source of
To many;
I am determined
To be a winner;
I am determined
To be a role model.
What about you?
Tell me about yourself.
Are you determined
Like me?
What are you determined
To do?
What are you determined
To be?

Nobody can stand On your way

You will meet people
Who will try
To put you down
For no other reason
Than that
It will make them
Feel fine?
You will not do anything
For them to want
Your downfall;
But they will want it
Watch out
For such people;
Don’t let them
Succeed in their diabolic plan.
Twart it;
Prove to them
That nobody can stand
On your way.
In fact, nobody can.

Don’t wave me aside

Don’t wave me aside;
Don’t look at me
And conclude
That I will not make it;
That I will not amount
To much;
Because I look so;
That will be an error;
My determination
To make it is strong
And unshakable;
And it is hard to know
What a person can do
With such determination.
There is virtually no limit.
If you wave me aside
I will surprise you
By making it big;
I will prove to you,
What I am meant to be:
A great individual.

Quite amazing!

I am delighted to know,
That progress,
You’re making;
It is quite amazing;
And all because you’re. determined;
That is what determination does;
The fruits of determination
Are abundant.
Once you’re not determined
Forget it;
But once you’re determined,
It works out;
One step at a time,
And a very long journey
Is done
Before you know it;
It is never all in a leap;
But with confidence in God;
He takes control;
And your every single step matters.
One step at a time
It’s done.

I am old but (Be inspired today 390 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

So what if I am old?
It doesn’t mean
I am dead;
I am old, for sure;
But still waxing;
And fully determined
To live my life;
Don’t tell me I am old
And should give up life;
Am I dead?
Many things I can do;
And do them well;
That is how I will enjoy
My life;
I will not do
What I cannot do;
I will do what I can do;
Where I can excel,
I will go;
Where I will not excel,
I will not go.
So you stop saying,
“He is old.”
“He is finished.”
“It’s over for him.”
Its not over yet;
I am not finished;
It’s not finished.
There’s still a lot to do.
