If there was any word I was scared of while growing up,
It was that word. Even up till this moment, I am still scared of it. Yea! You heard me.

They made me believe I got to present myself perfect & if I can’t, I should just remain in the shadows.
It kept me as a supporting speaker in debates I was meant to be the chief speaker( don’t just create any idea in your head about …)

I ran
I seriously ran,
This was more than the Olympics,
It was a battle of survival for me,
I thought that was the best way for me to remain safe.
I ran from responsibilities.

Guess what,
I was badly affected by them( you thought so too right😊),
Spiritually – don’t make me climb up the “pulpit”,
Physically – don’t beam the lights on me,
Socially – I think my been alone should suffice,
Materially – I have no idea how that should manifest.

Ghen! Ghen!!
I am still scared yet beginning to embrace mistakes,
Its skins were hard at first but it seems I’m beginning to rest in it,
Coz I know mistakes are pathway to progress and not a hindrance,
And growth is actually CONTINUAL throughout existence.

  1. Great one bro. Mistakes are pathway to success. No failure no success. The man that invent bulb tried so many times, but at the end he succeeded.
