We may think it’s the end of the world because:
we were treated wrong,
we were conned,
we became incapacitated,
we’re tired, sick, hungry,
we’re harassed and molested,
we feel lonely and dejected,
we’re living with a disability,
nothing seems to be working for us,
and so on and so forth.

And so we beat ourselves up,
we put ourselves down,
we belittle ourselves,
we get depressed,
we even want to take our own lives.

We forget that we’ve come this far, in spite of;
We forget that self-deprecation
won’t motivate us to do better or be better;
We forget that self-disapproval
will only make us to feel inadequate,
unappreciated, incapable, weak,
and just plain terrible.

We forget that we’re born champions,
and champions do not allow barriers
to derail their vision and ambition.
We forget that champions push on
even when they feel as if they can’t.
We forget that champions
compose themselves and run faster
if they’ve fallen behind.

What this calls for then is a change of focus;
to go back and be the champions
that we were born;
and everything will fall in place,
things will work out magnificently
in ways we didn’t even know existed.

We should change focus, despite our problems,
from ourselves to others;
the touch we give to others,
the sunshine that we scatter along our way;
the kind deed we do for someone in need;
the service that we give,
the helping hand that we lend.

This change of focus brings a joy that’s lasting;
just to know that someone’s gladness
is because of us!!

Changing focus allows us to remember that
we’re breathing, while others gasp for breathe;
our life is not all gloom;
our sun is shining, while it’s dark in their world;
we are healthy despite, unlike them;
we’re still strong to toil and replace what’s lost;
we are surrounded by loving family and friends;
and we woke up, while they didn’t.

Changing focus allows us to remember that
over and above all,
we’ve got God on our side;
He who holds the whole World in His hands;
and it doesn’t matter how big our problems are;
they are nothing compared to how big God is.

I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
