I know I’ve been through a lot
But mother told me
it’s about that time.
Time to shine and be a star
and when it’s hard
I just fight.
When in the dark
use wisdom as your light.
Preserve until you get a reward
Because you know you better than you think you are.

I remember my days in University
getting calls from family.
Telling me to stay strong
and face reality.
If any problem
God is the remedy.
The alternative is to write poetry.
As I write my lines on the margin line
Knowing the difference between what’s wrong and right
As I write what I like and like what I write
with my whole entire heart.
That was straight from the heart.
