“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

 

Mother Teresa

I wrote this a while back, and just decided to share and edit it….

*I do not seek to have riches like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must have let it be like that of Solomon.
*I do not seek to believe or have faith like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must let it be like Abraham.
*I do not seek to be versatile like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must be let it be like Otto Paul Adah.
*I do not seek to have wisdom like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must have let it be like Solomon..
*I do not seek to be a father like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must be let it be like Abraham.
*I do not seek to be a living legend like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must be let it be like Nelson Mandela

….Greats have come and gone after leaving a mark, I’ve seen and read thier stories. But now is the time for mine, my own way..
For I don’t need to walk in the shoes of any man on earth but in the the light of He who made the earth
I’m Unique…
I’m UNCOMMON!!

 

..The essence of this was to get myself to confront the status quo. And publishing it now is to get to others who can relate to this. Ever been in a position where you were applauded but felt deep down that you didn’t do you best? Knew deep down you could much better?? Well get out of that place, remember “in the land of the blind a one eyed man is an idol”. You may need to change those you spend most of your time with, you may need to upgrade you friends and colleagues. You can do much more, no body is better than you, just like the greats you’ve heard about you too have a lovely story the world would love to read about. Be Different, Be the Best!!

I wrote this a while back, let me share this here now…

I’ll give you a testimony about my friend

He taught me a lot and brought a lot of my problems to an end

When he was here it was like he did no harm

Even in difficult times he remained calm

When I expected a sigh he gave a smile

..The first time I saw him angry

Was when he caught some folks messing around with his fathers property

…. They plotted to put him away

And I must confess they had thier way

They put him to death

But…. But it didnt end there..

They didnt get the whole story

They didnt know that by killing Him, they only activated his mercy

And released his glory

Now, I don’t have to walk with him physically

He lives in me, like pharoah lived in misery

With Him I have more power than Ceaser

…. Folks, the name of my Friend is JESUS !
