An Approval - Poem by Martin Ntsako Manhisa

I had a plan
Yes, said my old man,
I said Amen.

I had a proposal
But no approval.
My mum sounded skeptical.

I had ideas
My friend had no ears,
I think he said yes.

I had an interest
With a confused heart.
It said, be glad I still pump blood

I had a vision.
I needed permission.
God said that's my mission.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

If you are seeking approval from any other source rather than God
you will get different answer and opinions which ends up confusing
yourself.
But God always knows what's best for you.
