I signed in as a writer for a competition,and so I wrote this poem,knowing fully well that not all,will make it to the finals.
I wrote this to support and encourage the ones going to be dropped out of the competition.
And well,the good news is,I made it through to the finals.
You ain’t the best in class but you’re in for the finals.
You were once mocked for being a failure,but you made it here
You started from the scratch,now you made it to the top
You were perplexed,deppresed,felt like giving up,but hey you made it.
And the haters? What about them? Can they stand you now?
Now you’re celebrated for being a survival,for failing to be a failure.
And even if you don’t make it tonight,you’re still a winner
Because you carry the sword of a warrior,and you speak the words of a legend
We all here ain’t graduating with a first class but we have been tagged talented ones.
Can’t you see there’s a hero in you,you were born great
You can move mountains
Many of you may think this is Just a saying,but I speak firm words
Great ones,the time has come to unleash that potential you carry.
you’re not ordinary,You’re extra-ordinary.
There’s a potential in you,the world hasn’t heard about. Be ready to get your class strucked and elevated.
There’s this hidden gift,that hasn’t been activated,go! Get them captivated it needs the inner you to get the fire burning.
Some say writers are nobody,but I’m somebody. I’m precious
I’m challenged whenever I see great poets speak
It brings out the best in me, and I’m encouraged
Never think you have arrived to deprive,you ain’t there yet,until you’re everywhere.
There’s a big field out there,go ye there in and cultivate,and reap the fruit of the land.
You possess so much more. It’s in you.
The world awaits a great hero
That hero is you!
