Uncertainties Abound...

How else do you go through life when the odds are stacked against you?
It's hard to push through when others make it sound like you are not doing enough
It's worse still when you see others go through life and become better with you left behind
How do you change your gaze when hardship is the only reality you see?
Isn't that a good ground to give up and have your discouragement fueled?
How do you see the light at the end of the tunnel when it's pitched dark at the entrance?
Sometimes it's hard to have hope in certain situations
It's hard to not give up with so many obvious limitations
You have had to give up hope with no hope with several indications
But the truth is, God is always there for you in all ramifications
It's hard to believe in humans or even in a nation like Nigeria
A country with riches yet citizens had to do too much to fend for themselves
Where is the government especially when the rules are different for the rich and the poor
Penalties are weighed differently depending on your status
Standards are different for everyone with judgement scale tilting to favour the rich
Certain situations happen without
It's hard to see anything good come out but I believe, still
I don't have to see the whole staircase but I am taking one step at a time
I don't have to see the light at the end of that tunnel yet even with the darkness
I just want to switch on my faith light as I walk through the darkness
With focus on my track, hoping it helps others get through as we both head out of the tunnel
Even though I walk through the valley...He said
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining
I believe in the moon when it is not out yet
I believe in the rain even when the land is so dry and thirsty
I want to believe in Nigeria even amidst bad governance and chaos
Just as I believe in what's happening around with hope it gets better
Believe in your rocky path even with your bruised feet
Painstakingly take one step at a time and look up to the heaven
With your back on the ground, if you can look up, you can get up
Uncertainties may abound...but remember, God is constant through it all


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.
