Inspiring Poem

Did you know that the month April is recognized as World Poetry month.

In honour of this and also because I'm a poet, I'm publishing a self-written poem titled, I'm a Youth.

The poem identifies the carefree lifestyle of youths of this generation. I wrote this poem through accumulated experiences, how I feel at times as well as what I see in many youths. Hope you are inspired;

Poem: I'm a Youth
I'm a youth
This means I'm young
I'm growing
and developing

I'm a youth
This means I can be shy
I can be immature
I can do insensible things

I'm a youth
My mum says I'm strong headed
I love to do things myself
and take orders from no one.

I'm a youth
My dad gives me responsibilities
I grumble, groan
and cant wait to be
in the company of my friends.

I'm a youth
This means I'm always concerned
about my looks- shape, clothes, hair
I try to be updated on the latest trends.

I'm a youth
I love to listen to loud music
dance all day
and waste away valuable time.

I'm a youth
I feel I have a hundred years ahead of me
I enjoy not having the weight of life on me
Adventure is my only call

I'm a youth
I'm ignorant of my potentials
of my capabilities
and my worth.

I'm a youth
Life is all about fun for me
Life is sweet and cool when you're a youth.
You never hear the clock ticking.

I'm a youth
I do anything and everything
but the things that'll make me better.
For me, life is to be enjoyed.

I'm a youth
All I need are drinks, tv, food and friends
stupid imagination
and a daring heart.

I'm a youth
I am soon to wake up from my hallucinations
and realize that there's a mountain
at the end of the smooth, fun road.

I'm a youth
about to not be a youth
and to realize that the clock was ticking
and energetic life had gone.

If You feel confused

I was so confused some minutes ago. Last year I was very undecided on if I wanted to be a science or art student. Now by God's grace and wisdom I chose science. I've decided I'm doing a medical course. But I'm just not sure which 😖.
I started imagining myself having a bleak or unfulfilling future because I wasn't sure what I wanted to be or do.
Negative thoughts started playing in my mind. I'm very happy I didn't stay in that condition for long 😊. I remembered a quote from my favourite christian rapper KB. He said:

I don't know what tomorrow holds but I know who holds my tomorrow.

Suddenly so much faith and confidence rose in me. Every doubt and negative thought cleared my mind. I still may not be sure on what I want to be, but I have trust and faith in my God. I know He's with me every step. I'm sure I'm in safe hands and therefore I have no cause to worry.

Matthew 6:25 : “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
English Standard Version (ESV)

Just Take a Step

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’m the shy type. Extremely shy type. Well when it comes to certain stuff anyway. I’m much better than ho...
