Treasure Island

Prince Ifeoluwa Daniel ShanuOlu

(1-01-1982 / Lagos)

Pathway to Success


IF you can FOLLOW my PRINCIPLES
You will BECOME the mother of SUCCESS and WEDDED to SAFETY
FILTER your WORDS before they are voiced
CLOSE your EYES to FRIVOLITY and PRAISE
STAIN not your HANDS with EVIL and
BLOOD
LET not your NOSE PERCEIVE ENVY and COVETEOUSNESS
Long not for MONEY, EVE and POWER for these are SLAVES to DEATH
Let not WORTHLESS PEOPLE RENT your HEART,
INCREASE the RENT,
CHANGE the LOCK and KICK them out! Hence they BECOME a WEAPON of SETBACK
GIVE your BRAIN to LEARNING and not ARGUMENT My SON

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
