CHIDINMA: BITTER TRUTH

share on:

Nobody will know your worth if you do not believe,

In your mind and your soul and your laden heart.

They can not peer into your head and see your hopes and dreams,

For all they’ll see are frozen pieces of make believe.

 

No one cares about a troubled, wounded alien soul,

Because for most, they’ve trudged that path and they are now on top,

So next time you go around, thinking they owe you much,

Remember this and best believe you are truly on your own.

 

Yesterday I had a dream that made me realize,

That all I need to start my walk has been always here,

I may start slow and may not know how to improvise,

But here’s one truth, the steps I take will help me run someday.

 

I have a dream to be a name that all want to hear,

I have a dream to be the best at everything I do,

To live my dream I have to start by telling me the truth,

For with knowledge comes a brother, whose name is clarity.

 

Clarity is knowing that you have to quickly grow,

Leaving back the urge to stop when you hit a block,

It’s tackling matters in your life that keeps limiting you,

With an urgency and a fever only you can bring.

 

I know this piece might just confuse what loyal readers I have,

For they might worry about the turn my writing skill just took,

Rest assured for I’m only trying out some abilities,

While letting you into my private space just once again.

 

So if you are reading and you think this post has struck a chord,

Just leave a note right below in the comment box,

Dare I say I missed my space and flat at 360nobs.

I’m glad I came home, I truly hope you all did miss me too.

I am the personification of Brutally blunt and Witty. I love my jokes funny, my music loud and my gists, colourful. I live my life by rules- my rules- and make no apologies for why I act the way I do. I define creativity as the act of evolving and evolving... Suffice to say that life and I are on first name terms- he is crazy about me too!

  4. Aw, this was a very nice post. In concept I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make an excellent article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and under no circumstances appear to get something done.
