Life is an uphill battle, also an intriguing journey
a sojourner on fascinating trails of soul’s tourney
Life is a repertoire of good and bad, wins and losses
no matter the circumstances humans prevails the tosses
Life is not a lavish road of personal selfish indulgence
but kindly loving acts to each and everyone in accordance
Life is questing and thirsting serendipitous surprises
all defining golden moments that one covets as prizes
Life is a series of devastating trials and tribulations
that toughens the spirit, assurance of transformations
Life is a medley of loves, some unrequited some great
which all human hearts are buoyed with destined fate
Life is much drama sporadic times of ease and leisure
some events better forgotten other moments to treasure
Life is where we feel heights of joy and depths of sorrow
where it alters our attitudes and perspectives for tomorrow
Life is like a river, meandering stream or a gushing rapid
accept whatever destiny brings, the zest together the vapid
Life is the ultimate heartbeat and pulse of every soul
stay true to yourself and to God and you’ll feel whole

While pondering on this, does everyone have this one burning question;
why do we busy ourselves endlessly going round and round in circles
chasing our envisioned pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?
Are there such promises of treasures? The quest and the attainment of it,
does it all satisfy the hunger for fulfillment of happiness and peace of our
inner soul? By the end of it all, is it worth every breath we take and every
minute that we expend our present moments for an indefinable uncertain
future? On the other hand, some of us would rather championed the other
favored route of taking charge of our lives and construct our own path to
success and contentment as to meandering and walking the path which
the Lord God above has mapped out for us.
Patience and Faith is called for while heeding the voice of God in directing
us to which streams or rivers we should flow and swim along. Though all
of us struggle with the long and winding road of life with obstacles and a
whole load of burdensome challenges, just remember that we are God’s
clay and He is our Potter. When we plod along life’s precipices, do not
forget that a Potter is very patient when molding His clay. He needs to
reshape and remold till He is pleased and satisfied that the vessel will be
near perfect accordingly that reflects loving considerate traits along with
a great character. Through the midst of our living, we tend to be shifted
off or misshapen by drifting of from being the original intended shape but
our Potter will always be there at the wheel to fashioned us again and again.
The final product of that special beautiful piece of clay falls praise to the
molder and architect of design of our lives, the *One True God Yahweh*
who sits majestically above in His awesome heavens.
The pursuit of a successful life lies in the perception of the seeker. Though
one might achieve own’s harvest of fame and fortune, one might lose his
valuable time with himself or herself and his or her loved ones. That’s the
start of the growth of distant communication where it grows and grows
and creeps on like the vines until it’s so unreachable that all sources of
connections would have been severed. This will be the domino effect of
disintegration and dissolution of family unity, the onslaught of
misunderstandings and miscommunications which will then result in
divorces and which in turn will affect the psychological and emotional
well being of any child. The cycle of disturbed, troubled and unloved
children will have the tendency of unhealthy living standards such as
diving into alcoholism, drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, vices of robberies
and the list goes on and on.
In the aftermath of all these, societies break down and moral decay sets
in and that will definitely roller coast to a dysfunctional country whereby
productivity and resourcefulness of it’s citizens would be decreased
alarmingly and that’s a heavy critical blow of deficits that will spiral
a healthy economy agonizingly downwards. If this “distance-virus” is
not checked, remedied and healed soon enough, the country will suffer
greatly with the deficiencies of it’s people.
The irony of it all is that, though we are so closely and sometimes intimately
connected with the super linkage bandwidth of computers, there is still that
lingering tarrying wide, open, silent and empty void of interaction hovering
in cyberspace. To sum it up in conclusion, the distance between souls will
keep on germinating and growing until there is only that silent and eerie
stillness of interplay and interchange in the future.

Pray, don’t find fault with the man that limps
Or stumbles along the road.
Unless you have worn the shoes he wears
Or struggled beneath his load.
There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt
Though hidden away from view.
Or the burden he bears placed on your back
Might cause you to stumble too.
Don’t sneer at the man who’s down today
Unless you have felt the blow
That caused his fall or felt the shame
That only the fallen know.
You may be strong but still the blows
That was his if dealt to you
In the selfsame way, at the selfsame time
Might cause you to stagger too.
Don’t be too harsh with the man that sins
Or pelt him with word or stone
Unless you are sure – yea, doubly sure –
That you have no sins of your own.
For you know, perhaps,
If the tempter’s voice should whisper as soft to you
As it did to him when he went astray
It might cause you to falter too.
Three things in life that, once gone, never come back –
Three things in life that can destroy a person –
Three things in life that you should never lose-
Three things in life that are most valuable –
2. Family & Friends
Three things in life that are never certain –
Three things that make a person –
3. Hard work
Three things that are Truly Constant
