A Giant Leap

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.

Thomas Jefferson

Be not afraid
to take a giant leap
from a mountain that’s steep.

Only have faith
that a net will form
beneath your feet.

Do You Know?

I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.

Brian Tracy

Do you know?
how many poets
there are in this big wide world.
some of them young, some, very old.
yet all of them so bold,
even in this cold world
that would not hold their hand
when they try to hold, gold
within the lines of their rhymes.


Do you know?
how many pens bleed
to satiate the need
of plenty pensive poets
to feed off writing against greed
so that they one day have the strength
to walk with smile a mile in length
to make the world heed
the poetry of life that has for so long freed
many lovers of life in ages long before.


I know!
poets that have gone mad
off the feeling of being glad
that they actually became sad
like a dad who had
just lost his daughter dead
having bled from being fed poison bread.


I know!
of plenty practitioners of poetry
whose history is rooted like a tree
in losing themselves in a reality
conjured up by their ability
to swim the deep depths
of their imagination.


I know?
there are many poets

some of them young, and some, very old.
yet all of them so bold,

that will not hold their hand
when they try to hold, gold

Ask A Villain to Explain

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing

George Bernard Shaw

Oh! Villain from the train whom i do disdain
For putting me in pain made me strain my brain.
Like an animal in chains i could remain
Only within the bonds of my mental plain
So my thoughts could never soar high like a plane.

“Can you please explain, why you wanted to contain
My merriment by going as far as to drain
My good mood by hitting me with your cruel cane
So that i did gain a sore stain on my skin
That made me look away from the lane of sane.”

To Inspire

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

C.S. Lewis

When the sons, beneath the sun
Have eyes that twinkle not
Because circumstances in life look dire;

Never forget to try to develop a deep desire
To inspire a fire, in the hearts of your sires
And their sons.

Balance

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Zig Ziglar

I am not
more grateful for my pen
that bleeds its blood out, to talk about
practicing to perfect practicing


Then i am
of my paper


Where i wield words
with a will, inspires me to hold, my quill with a skill
dazzles damsels distressed not to stress
and torn man not to morn, when there is less.

Born to Die | Die to be Born

If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.

Napoleon Hill



Oh Tell Me!

Bold baby born into a world so black
It lacks the ability to be bright.
Where in every bad trade there is a mad jack
Ready to steal your smile in the night,
So that he can hide it in his room-
Where everyday he plots your doom.


How in your ignorance you have the sense
To be happy and not like an old man tense
Because he will soon step into his grave
And enter back into mother natures womb.
Whilst you many a year have to be brave
To save the hearts of ladies from the tomb.


I’ll Tell You!

Old man who’s weak hands hold me in his frail arms
Who’s back lacks the strength to stand tall and straight
And who smells of the stink that shall always bait
The lovely lady death to come your way.
As she’s been attracted to all your charms
So she’ll make you for your long life pay.


That i’m happy because long have i been dead
In our mothers womb that’s also a tomb
And i’d forgotten how much life has to give.
Until now when i was born again
Into a world in which there’s much to smile for.

Lazarus Shatipamba
