A noble lady just told me, A book had changed her life; Can you guess How I felt hearing that? I was so elated; Has a book done that to you? I love books; Or do I say I adore books? Books change lives; Many good books are life changing; They are a gold mine; But not everybody Knows this; Lucky, those who do; Books are a treasure; And good books are The best treasure; One good book, I say, Can transform your life; If you like me to advice, I will tell you: Value books; And give them a chance To change your life. Read as many books as you can; And why not write yours?
I love the storehouse Of knowledge called books; And wonder if anyone doesn’t; And why they wouldn’t; Except from ignorance; What books have done for me, Is hard to tell; No human being has done; And I know it’s same for many. Books are more than A gold mine. And nothing can be compared To a good book. Some books have magical power; Or let me say Something like magical power; They can transform someone; Some books can take you From the bottom of the ladder To the top; From the foot of the mountain To its summit. That is how powerful Books can be. Books are treasure’s hideout; A store house of everything good.
His stumbling-block He turned into A stepping-stone; Putting a broad smile On so many faces; Starting, of course, as charity would dictate, At home; This is a blessing That is no common commodity; It’s the preserve of a few Who possess the transformative know-how To get to the bright side of darkness; Turning darkness into light; Resultantly, they look like A rare specie; If you can boast of this ability, call it skill, Count yourself lucky; Stumbling blocks Are a daily reality, Galore in everyone’s life; Their ugly faces always Show up in annoying doses, Without prior warning; Justifying the raison d’être Of the management skills To turn them into Stepping stones To facilitate instead of impede progress To your destination.
You should be a transformer. When Failure comes to you, Transform it to success.
If you find defeat,
Transform it to victory.
If it is loss you find, Transform it to gain,
If you find a stumbling block,
Transform it into a stepping stone.
If you find a challenge, Transform it into an opportunity.”
If you want to know my bucket list,
What I’d want to do
Before I kick the bucket,
It’s no difficulty for me to tell you.
Though I never thought of this before,
Let me tell you right away;
See my kids well settled,
And be sure they and their mum
Will be fine;
Publish many books
That will live for long,
Touch many hearts
And transform many lives.
Make some good money
And see a bit of the world;
See my blog become a website
That will, millions of lives, transform;
And help make the world an excellent place
For all to enjoy.
