Rising in the dark

When your mind is floating inside
silence and darkness,
under African stars.
Roars turn into whispers,
whispers begin to creep,
dragging their feet towards you, just be yourself.
People will always roar at you.
Just turn a blind eye,
it is the best pill to take.
Just rise and shine,
so you can smell success.
Become that star up there shining in the sky.
Because that’s what you are.
Don’t fall, keep on growing,
because a plant doesn’t stop growing.
But if you slip…
Tell yourself that
“Losing is temporary”
You can never guess it,
“Victory strike”
Because you wanted to side with defeat.
Life is easy,
but only if you walk tall like an ostrich.
Never lose faith in your valley.
Life rising in the dark is easy
