Our journey

The journey for you and I is a long journey
It’s a journey not yet started
Through this journey, we will meet good and difficult times
Down the road, some people will cheer and others will discriminate us
You and I will fight and make peace
But no matter what happens ….we will keep on going
We will go with harmony, passion, determination and commitment
We will walk together hand in hand with the protection of god
Along the way, we will produce fruit and that fruit will follow us
It’s an infinity journey full of promises
In time, both of us will stop; but our fruit will continue the journey
They will carry our genes and legacies
Our spirit will guard them as they match along this unforgiving world
And when the storm is over, we will smile to each other in pride saying “we did it”
Now……I’m urging you to stop playing
Put on your shoes
Take your bag with those fancy things of yours and let start…

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
