Don'T Be In A Hurry. - Poem by John Onyeme

Like my Mama used to say
Never be in a hurry young-blood
Everyone is not born thesame
Let not your ostentatious friends sweep you to regret like flood
You mustn't sell yourself to hell
All for you to get fame
They that did so,
Their story was obscure to tell
Until dead they had to go
Indeed, what wealth without soul?
Wealth without godly source,
Will take no time to be sore
Just when you start getting the joy
What need is the wealth that can never last?
Young-blood, you wont enjoy such time of wealth; it's too fast
Stay in good health as you work hard
In God's hands leave the rest
For He sees your strength and your needs in your heart
Hope in Him, for His time is the best
