Not Today, Contributed By @Olawalium

in #poetry2 years ago


You thought the love of your life would leave you
You thought life would crush you between the weights
You thought you would cry your eyes out
With fleeting moments of joy and happiness
You thought this is how you would go out of life
With only memories of your failed attempts
You thought there is no strength left for you to go on
You imagined yourself in the house of your choice
But reality stares at you in the face every time you wake
You thought it would forever rain and sunshine will hide
You thought this day marks the end of your life
I am here to tell you that it is not today, why?
You have so much to live for; you only need to look inside
Choose your gaze and focus on what’s working instead
You will die, yes but not today because the years are still ahead
And countries afar have not even started singing of your exploits
Not today, my dear friend and tomorrow is another day of exploit
There won’t be a crisis this week; my schedule is already filled

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn’t bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.

Average human mind expect the worst to happen. I can say it is inherent in human nature to think negatively. Just because we have no money now many believe that is the end of the race whereas it journey just begins. Just because we were being forsaken by our friends, we thought we couldn't meet up again.

Our past suffering will be alleviated one we make up our mind today to take drastic action to improve.

You are right. We need to improve on ourselves and that begins with choosing our focus right because what we choose to see will determine what we are going to get. Life sometimes tries to knock us down but to have any meaningful story, we have to rise above it. The world won't remember those who didn't leave any mark.

Thanks for that, brother.
