Make It Yes Make It - Poem by Habib A. Zakari

Today you lie and do nothing
Is worm is better than you
It crawl here it crawl there
And your mind can’t make you move

You can do nothing yes nothing
The mind tells you and tells you
Then you believe it and sit again
And you agree you can’t reach it

But oh no that’s not the way
Make your mind jump out of sleep
Make it give you the way to greatness
Wake it up yes make it work
Yes yes open its eyes to things so great
Shake the hazy thoughts off its eyes

Rub it well and banish its sleep
Sleep of the mind infect your progress
How it tie the spirit of dreams

Oh stare at your chances
Not like an egg to the breaker
But as a thing that nothing breaks

Yes yes clinch that space
The top they say is rare
The type that lifts
Than the fastest jet
Come come come
Go and conquer
Oh oh go go go

If choose to stand
You can walk then and learn to run
If you learn to hug the speed
One day you shall sprint
Oh you can make your mind clinch
That great thing that you desire
