MY STRUGGLE by Blessing Michael

Spread the love

I worked so hard to win this race
I had held out my fingers in passion
No platform for myself as an idol of the marketplace
Waiting was never an habit or option

I worked shy, doesn’t matter what the sun said
My body’s thirst knew sweat and tears as wine
I worked not to be held by the sick world
And in the hollow of my palm, I had my mother’s words

Around me were strong and able men
But I worked seizing every golden penny
Because I have learnt from what hurts me
I had seen enough unblinking suffering

So now is the time to struggle beyond wishes
To obtain a life of wisdom,wealth and riches
I will become what I respect
And choose to attract what I expect

As I step into a life of sovereign
I will reflect what I desire
View and reveal what I admire
I will scale through my struggle
