MYSELF, MY HOPE! By Abbakar Danladi

Myself was there for me when no one cared.
The world seemed heavy hunched on my back.
Scorched, unease and fretted but no one cared.

Because I had nothing and was no one but me.
I felt the lonesome left far from a cliff.
Where I could see their backs turned on me.

Going down the hill without beckon.
No one turned to take one last look.
No one cared to know if I will stay strong or break.

I felt a bulge in my heart.
Protruded that made me rage.
Burn in flames of fury for left alone.

Like a lone outcast wolf.
Saw its pack left whole.
Because he was himself and no one else.

Where it to howl, bark or bleat.
No echo could hear him, less reflect.
My conscience dropped on its knee.

Raised its hands above for beseech.
All it wants to know is what wrong it did.
That it deserved be left for dread.

Asking what unearthed curse is that.
But hope came from me within.
That I be sad not for what I am.

I am what the Lord says will be.
It’s never an end nor its edge.
I was promised that I will be what life makes of me.

The better and strong all manned up.
Because myself was there for me.
When no one turned to see my fate.

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
