A young man once sat
On the shore of a gurgling stream
Falling into the arms of thought seduction
He began to swim across the vast landscape of the Earth
Indeed, the Earth is great why can’t I be?
There are mountains taller than Everest
hanging freely in a parallel universe
You will keep thinking you are at your peak
till you move into space.
Alexander the great,
was mighty not by virtue of age
but for his courage to venture into unknown space
Yeah! he moved beyond his comfort zone
He conquered territories
as vast as the ocean
because he learned to utilize his brain.
Regardless of your race, gender and size
Let greatness be your drive
when small minds try to limit your potentials
Look to the moon
and remember they are heights taller than Everest.
Aim for the skies,
Dream of walking on the Nile.
Records are meant to be broken
You can be great!
If you put your best
to the little things you do.
Little drops of water make an ocean,
Rome wasn’t built in a day.
It’s all starts with a spark
like the Big Bang
It goes ‘gbosa’
Ignite your passion
Chase your dreams even when they look out of fashion.
When the storms get tough as it sometimes will,
remember the greatest force on earth is the human will.
Achievers never surrender
my momma always tells me.
There is no limit to who you can become
How do I get there?
relax boy as we go down the hill.
Speaking to young minds,
I know right now you got a lot on your mind.
I could see your defeat
am here to tell you don’t retreat.
Drowning in the ocean of depression
and your imaginative power is about to go on relegation
Think of greatness
Let it consume you like flimsy paper cords in a furnace.
Hold on to your dreams when no one sees it
and nurture it when no one feels it.
As greatness possesses your mind
You would rise above the horizon
And not only be stars
but will light up your galaxy.
