Dark roots help me to see higher sky!
My heart beats, and pumps red blood, moist, yet, iron dry…
I am as loyal as wolves by your side.
I am as strong as wind, piercing in, through steel scrapers.
Peel a layer, and see my heart willing to die for a value.
I gave up on the pursuit of the 400M, yet, I did not throw in the towel.
Courageous, because I will find a way to compete and give my all.
Walking with my head held high, but sometimes I look down low…
Ashamed, because I did not reach the goal.
But something else happened, something else occurred!
My soul reached a maturity, which could not be solely expressed by words.
It’s a mysterious feeling, that’s it. It’s a feeling achieved, that’s all I can say.
Knowing I gave my all, for reasons kept private and sacred.
Now I carry new strength for something better in its own right.
I am a man of love, passion, and patience.
I am a man of God, declaring my blessings.
One day at a time, I will reach a new goal, and will keep on expressing.
A good friend and supporter, told me that it is all a mindset.
Well through these poems of expression, I want to thank you, my friend.
I knew that secret, I guess I just got down on my luck.
Luckily, I have two passions to draw from within my soul.
Writing and expressing, has been something like that of Gold.
With each new day, I will write with progression.
Until I reach my new succession, football.
I learned many lessons.
One most important and simplistic was this one –
Never lose yourself, in a pursuit of a mountain high achievement.
Take your time, because things will present itself to you in seasons.
