Rhyme sonny

Rookie (Accra - Ghana)


One day, I heard a voice clearly in my ears
Saying Sonny, wipe away your tears
Rise above your peers
And do away with your fears
Ii will add more years to your years
And your name will go farther than the Picassos and the Shakespeares

I will take you to the promise land
I will bless the works of your hand
And make them grand
Your name will be a brand
That will go beyond your homeland
I will give you the power to command
And it shall stand
People will not understand

Bring before thee your wrong’
I will correct them and make you strong
I will place you, where you truly belong
I will touch your tongue
And you will sing a song
A song that will revitalize, sensitize and energize
The youth that they are living for a prize
A song that will change the thoughts of fools and make them wise
I said to myself hmm, these are lies
The voice said again, my son, if you are troubled,
Where do you look up to, I said the skies
Then my son, be wise, arise and open your eyes
I have sown in you a seed
That will bear fruit and on it, million will feed
Multitudes that is what you will lead
You will provide them their need’
Just be confident and you will succeed
I received it, I accepted it, I agreed

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
