Have you renewed yourself?
What do you do
When the paint of your house looks old and dirty?
You renovate;
When you work
And are tired,
You take a rest
And renew your energy.
Do same with your mental power;
Do same with your spiritual power;
Renew and gain new energy;
You will deliver better.


Take your place (Be inspired today 405 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Once you have discovered
That energy source
Which you can tap
To lift yourself up
To the moon,
Waste no time;
Go straight for it;
Harness it;
There is a magic touch
Some people have
In their hands
That turns all they touch
Into gold.
Look for it;
That should be yours.
You have to take your place;
The place that is designed For you by the Divine Master.


I am exhausted but happy;
I am exhausted but satisfied;
I am exhausted but don’t
Regret it;
The work I’ve done
Is rewarding;
It has solved a problem
That we faced
Because of IDPs.
Do you know what IDP means?
Internally Displaced Persons;
We have received some IDPs
And have been making provision
To accommodate them;
That has kept me busy,
Until I am exhausted.
But I don’t complain;
We owe them
A duty of hospitality;
And that is what we are doing
With plenty of joy.
Thus, though exhausted, I am fine.

Young people are my blessing

What a wonderful blessing!

To have so many inspiring

Young people around me!

Bustling with youthful exuberance;

Who will not like to be like me?

To have such treasure, such gold;

See how they inspire me;

They teach me new ways

Of seeing, knowing and doing;

How can I ever run out of steam?

They inspire;

They motivate;

They energize me.

Oh God!

Thanks for all these sweet, young

And brilliant ones.

Bless them O Lord, to conquer

More and more everyday!


I was inspired to write this poem by the young people who interact with me on SIWO. I am grateful to them.

Be busy doing …

Are you busy doing something
Or you are busy doing nothing?
To be busy doing nothing
Is to waste both time and energy;
To be busy doing something
Is effective use of time and energy;
To be busy doing nothing
Is to get to the end of the day
Exhausted with no results to show.
Hard work is, for sure, recommended;
But it should be geared towards results.
A little work with results
Is better than a lot of work
With no results;
Never be busy doing nothing;
Always be busy doing something.

Wasted knowledge

Knowledge not used
Is wasted knowledge;
What then is the use
Acquiring it?
If knowledge is wasted,
The time spent acquiring it
Is wasted;
So too the energy used;
Then you have
Wasted knowledge;
Wasted time;
Wasted energy.
Knowledge should be used;
To build not to destroy;
The only way
The world can be built;
The only way
You can advance in life
Is to use knowledge gained.
