Mansion (hurry)

“If you want to built a hut, you can hurry; but if you want to build a mansion, you must take your time. We never hurry to build a mansion except you want it to crumble shortly after.” (Romilia Quotes)


It takes time (Be inspired today 278 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Don’t forget the time
It takes
To build a mansion;
Maybe not a hut,
But a mansion;
You can build a hut
In one or two days;
In short,
You can build a hut
In a very short time,
But when it comes
To a mansion,
Be ready to be patient;
Be ready to struggle;
Be ready for the discouragement
You will get;
To which you must not succumb;
To give in will mean
No mansion;
It’s like a great life;
You don’t build a great life
In a day or a week or a month;
Not even a year or two;
It takes time and hard work;
A lot of hard work;
Patience, persistence;
A lot of time.

Frustrated bitter sad

I am frustrated;
I am bitter;
I am sad;
I come from the village;
I am a village boy;
I want to go to the city;
I want to live in the city;
I want to be rich;
I want to live in luxury;
I wonder if I have a chance;
I wonder where to begin;
I have no job;
I have no education;
I know nothing but poverty;
I was born in poverty;
I have grown in poverty;
I swim in poverty;
I bathe in poverty;
I live in poverty;
I see people living in opulence;
I see them in mansions;
I see some in ivory towers;
I admire them;
I wish I could be like them;
I think everyday about my life;
I cry every night;
I know not what lies ahead;
I see no light ahead;
I really want to succeed;
I am worried;
I am frustrated,
I am bitter;
I am sad.
I want to succeed;
I want to shine as others;
I want someone to help me.


If you want

If you want
To succeed,
Do not waste time
On things that
Don’t matter.
Manage your time
If you want to
Make the world
A better place,
Do not spend
On your own food
When many
Are going hungry;
Do not buy
Too many cars
When many
Cannot afford
Food to eat
And money
To buy medication
When sick;
Do not build
Too many mansions
Because you really
Don’t need them.
Do not be greedy;
It is not good
For anyone
Not even for you.
Do not think
Only of yourself;
Think of others
As well.
Do not fear
To put your trust
In the Lord;
He is the only one
You can trust.
If you want to win,
Do not fear
To do your best;
Do not fear to win.

One brick at a time

Brick by brick, I will build my mansion;
As step by step, a journey of 100 kilometers is made;
If you see me putting one brick at a time,
Do not laugh at me;
I will make it;
One brick takes me one step closer my goal;
Therefore, no brick shall I minimize.
