White doves
fly freely in the sky
lions, wolves and foxes
roam about on land

White doves
in praise of their Lord
lion, wolves and foxes
in praise of themselves

Lions with crowns
aggressive in nature
those who come near
are mauled one after another

Wolves in feathered clothes
substantially treacherous
attacking from behind
those around them

Bearded foxes
ever deceitful
manipulating and deceiving
others within their reach

When white doves
extend their wings
in praise of their Lord
lions with crowns
wolves in feathered clothes
bearded foxes
are defeated eventually.

I revere prophets
for their
spiritual depths
esteem characters
lasting patience
worships and remembrances of God

I revere thinkers
for their
social diagnoses
penetrating analyses
academic rigours
checks and balances of men

I revere athletes
for their
training dedications
winning mindsets
high self-believe
inspires and motivates us all

I revere these people
prophets, thinkers and athletes
for their existences give me
visions and possibilities that I can be
making life very fulfilling before it is my turn to leave.

If you ask a political scientist about social change, he/she would say that election and mobilisation are platforms for it.
If you ask a sociologist about social change, he/she would state that discourse and critique are avenues for it.
If you ask an international relationist about social change, he/she would answer that global governance and great powers are mediums for it.
If you ask an economist about social change, he/she would reply that finance and investment are tools for it.
If you ask an educationist about social change, he/she would mention that nurture and development are ways for it.
If you ask a religionist about social change, he/she would say that worship and remembrance are paths for it.
Thus, actually, social change begins with oneself, using all of the above ways to achieve the social change that we dream for collectively.

Life is like that
pleasures are few
challenges are aplenty
for us to pay heed
that life is indeed fleeting

Life is like that
happiness are contingent
worries are abound
for us to comprehend
that life is verily incomplete

Life is like that
glories are minimal
defeats are many
for us to admit
that life in this world
is just a bridge
to the true life with HIM
that awaits
me, you, them and all of us eventually.

Is it true?, that
by nurturing youths
through systems and processes
they will fight against threats
when the time comes

Is it true?, that
by indoctrinating talents
through propagations and ideologies
they will protect against challenges
when the situation arises

Is it true?, that
by training cadres
through incentives and deprivations
they will rise against risks
when the landscape changes

Is it true?, that
nations and states
societies and communities
groups and organisations
will shield each other
when He blows a single breath
of His Decisive Will and Desire
through death, disease and disruption.

The Road Less Travelled

This is
The Road Less Travelled
the path that I have taken
in search of my uniqueness
to discover my true potential

This is
The Road Less Travelled
the way that I undertook
in hope of authentic achievements
to reach those promised destinations.

The Key

This is the key
to felicity
to trust and be in love
with Him

This is the key

to put faith and surrender
to Him

This is the key
to victory
faith, trust, love and surrender
to Him and only Him.
