My Mother, My Motivation

She's being there even when I had no idea
She's held me through the dark stages till it's all clear
She's my strength and courage that kicks away every fear
She's my mother,  my motivation, and that's why I share.

Every second, her words keep playing in my mind
She's my search engine to whatever I want to find
She's the most unique being in the universe, I haven't seen her kind
My mother, my motivation, the pace that keeps up my grind.

She's the best friend I've ever had
We're so close that I never miss my dad
Always correcting my wrongs and never making me look bad
Gives me hope in distress; the reason I'm always glad

My mother, my life's greatest motivation
She's the best I've had, my main inspiration
In all I do,  she ensures she makes her little contribution
My mother, the best in the universe not only our nation.

So many things going on yet we mostly tend not to care
We are scared of what of to say; living in perpetual fear
What good does it make if our feelings we cannot share?
Instead, we watch things grow worst year after year

Let’s talk about the selfish leaders in our nations
They’re more like the serpent in God’s creation
All they say are words that lure us into damnation
While we suffer with no hope for our future generation

Let’s talk about the homeless kids on our streets
How do they live, clothe, or even get food to eat?
No shelter, no education; yet we claim they are the future
I really don’t get the type of image we’re trying to capture

Let’s talk about ourselves; me and you…
We never take responsibilities for the things we do
Always wanting others to step into our shoes

And we blame them for not paying our dues… let’s talk!

I know what it feels like

Sometimes people see me as the “has it all” type
They’re thinking my roses are red and my fruits all ripe
Or maybe I was born with a golden bracelet round my hand
They keep thinking things without trying to understand
But they don’t know that I’ve walked bare footed on wet sand.

I know what it feels like to be raised by a single parent
Mama had to pay fees, feed the home and also pay rent
Had to use rope round my waist because there was no belt
Used a pair of shoes for many academic years till it gets bent
To sleep on an empty stomach, no light to do homework, all that I’ve felt.

I know what it feels like to have dreams and it only stays in your sleep
Your heart burns with disappointments and to your pillow you do weep
You toil so hard to achieve success but only failure you do reap
It’s like you’re in a dark hole, so dangerous and deep
You feel so terrible and think it’s best to end your life’s trip

When I say ‘I know how it feels like’, I really do know
I know what it means when you can’t harvest when you sow
The struggles in life are real and they’ve watched me as I grow
I know… I really do know; it’s not something I’ve learnt from some reality show

That’s why I never stay on the fast lane instead I take life really slow.

So many things seem not to be going on the right path
Hoping for a better end but with a horrible start
We all embrace the wrong and neglect the fact
What if we had the chance to take decisions?
How would we act in such position?

What if we were what we constantly criticize?
I mean the people we tag as “devil in disguise”
Would we have step up to act as wise?
Or maybe make the same excuses as the ones we criticize?
Please make time to think and analyze…

What if we all forget about race and religion?
Embrace each other, irrespective of our region
No wars, we all embrace peace and live as one
The world will be a better place with much fun
Cause we don’t really need the bombs and guns

I can be whoever, however, wherever
It’s up to me to say ‘now’ or ‘never’
I can choose to be still or flow like a river
It’s my choice to act stupid or be clever.

You can’t force me off my will
You can never beat me at my skill
You can’t push me to take your deal
You can’t teach me my own drill.

Only I can decide what happens to my life
Whether I choose to stay single or take a wife
Or maybe look at the other end which may not be nice
But it’s my life, my decision to be precise.
We all make choices, whether good or bad
For instance, I disowned my dad
It’s not up to you to tell if it’s wise or mad
Though it comes with a consequence for me to be an abandoned lad.


Noon has its own dealings; night has its own feelings
Having spent a day that has no meaning
Laying down sleepless, looking at the ceiling
Slowly your eyes get closed without knowing
Rising to a new day with a beautiful morning.

Sometimes the morning can’t really be good
Especially when times are hard; no cash, no food
Late night sleep and you wake up to a noisy hood
Neighbors keep calling but you’re not in the mood
You keep hearing “good morning” and you think it’s rude.

You keep wondering, “what has life got to offer you today?”
You work so hard, you can’t tell what it feels like to play
It’s like the more you pray, you become the targeted prey
And your thoughts keep coming, your feelings taking you away
You’re hoping there is no such like “good morning” or another day.

My life has not being what exactly I planned.
The storm has being heavy, taking everything I earned.
I've being all over the place; scattered as sand!
Neglecting all I should focus on; but to my fans I say, I'm sorry..
Please take back my hand.

Sometimes I can hardly understand myself..
I seek things beyond my reach.. I'm more like searching for elf.
It's of late I've realized life is a beautiful thing itself.
To my readers I say I'm sorry as I welcome you all to my normal self.

All this while, I've being acting busy like an ant.
Achieving just a little and it's not really instant.
But I'm all ready to move on; that's the fact.
I'm really sorry from the depths of heart..
