You’ve Gotta Change

Anyone who enjoys doing the same thing over and over and yet expects a different answer could only be termed foolish. This is why we preach for change.

A man who always preach for change is not quick to adapt, because they are often scapegoat for any dissatisfaction.

Everyone understands the need for change in their progress, yet we never fail to exhibit our character as creatures of habit; enjoying our comfort and will do everything possible to escape uncertainties.

Scepticism is in connection with new ideas. Yes, the past is powerful. What has happened before seems great but perhaps we need a little twist today to make it greater.

Our human psychology consists of many dualities; one that values the essence for organisations and people to change and another who is always irritated and upset by changes when directly affected.

We all know change is necessary and relieve us from boredom but deep inside us all, we might cling to the past. Gone are the days when men depended on communication centres for important calls but now we do them right at our comfort zones.

Gone are the days we journeyed several miles to explore places outside our scope to explore geography under demand and at times out of men’s inquisitiveness to explore knowledge. Evolution of technology has made this a thing of the past also, replacing it with Google maps in our pockets at all times.

Change in the abstract, we desire, but change that upsets core habits and routines are deeply disturbing.

When the masses inevitably yearn for the past experiences in organizations and from individuals, we need to realise the past is just a text which need to safely insert our own lines to suit the change we advocate.

In conclusion, change is inevitably an uncomfortable discipline to master, nevertheless, how fast you excel in life and in any venture is dependent on how quick you respond to change. It is a choice to make; choose right!

Value Your Own

Wishes carried on a tray

Not long after it fray

Oh God this only one I pray

And it will begin my days of play

Longings in the secrecy of heart

Desires buried in silence land I unearth

And oh the tears of seas

That only God sees

Inside the heart of a gentle soul;

The sheer ecstasies and fallacies in sole

Today I write of

What I had I never valued

One afar I passionately wished for, even another’s

Everything was wrong with mine

Everything was right about what I longed for from afar

Another was lucky to have that

I’m unfortunate for mine

It was beautiful from afar

Unfolding before me was the potency of desire I barely knew of

What seemeth afar drew close

Every nigh and night

My desires serving me as will a knight

What I didn’t know;

The sun’s beauty from afar

Doesn’t make it all beautiful within

From afar we chase

We draw close and we wished for the distance

Hunted by what we were running from

The long embraces of the cyclic pasts

Long enough to forever seem to last

Inside silence is the buried words for a million page book

Today I return to tell a tale

A tale that will leave trails

Setting men to sail

Of the distance deception I reveal

And that I say;

Value your own

Just Do It

An Aunt’s love for ants

She will never advice except for an ice

Today’s tale began on her pale

It’s a tale I must trail

Today I will sing

And will hope it sink

Today is sunny

Today is warmth

Today I’m strong

I know I could do it today

But I can do it tomorrow also

Why not do it tomorrow?

Today I let go

Tomorrow I shall do it

Tomorrow is not mine to predict

I’ve got to make it today

But a little more sleep I longed

A little more play I prayed

I fail to take opportunity of today

Hoping tomorrow will be today’s synonymous brother

I left it to chance tomorrow

When I had control over it today

I’ve got to worry about tomorrow

I’ve got to fill my mind with anxiety

I left it to chance; I left it to whim

I failed to see that today is the present

And that I can see and control

I should have known

I couldn’t tell it all tomorrow

It might be sunny today

But it might not always be sunny everyday

I am strong today

But I might not be strong tomorrow

Why not do it whilst I’m certain I can?

Today I live

Living to take control whilst I can
