Contentment’s Motivation

Do not sacrifice the laurels you earned
Through hard work and sweat equity
For want of dreams that have not yet
Come to pass, rather treasure that
Which reflect the reward of your earnest
Effort, and use them without any reservation to
Motivate and propel you to the goal of enriching
Your gift of life and that of others, and therefrom
Find contentment, which in itself will supplant
The void of unrealized dreams with hope
Which in time will yield the bounty of peace.

Promise Anew

And although, the dawn of the new year is now but a memory,
As the year itself, unrestrained by time, embarks on its own course
Through the passage of each minute, towards the fulfillment
Of its own destiny within the global enterprise of existence,
The dawn of hope never eclipses or fades into the oblivion of time
Rather, with the unfolding of each precious moment, lies renewed
Promise that knows no bounds and springs to inspire one and all…
Therefore, seize it and maximize its potential to fit your purpose.

Happy New 2015.

Recalibration Required

It is but not a failing to embrace new things
In the quest to advance forward in life…
For when we hit that point, in this terrain
Where the winds of the challenge remain
Steadfast in their determination to incite
Discontent and lack of tranquility, and
Old plans, which otherwise work, yield
No momentum towards progress, then
My friend, it is time for introspection towards
Full recalibration and the utilization of new strategies,
To transcend that which appeared to be immutable.
At this juncture, take heed to adapt, and
Not rely solely on what worked in the past,
Which may not have the power to see you
Through the current turbulent storm.
Rather with courage, try something new
For there is victory in realizing the futility of
The plans that no longer bear fruit.

Refocused

Focus not on lost opportunities,

Rather, focus on the new promise

Yet existing in the present, and

The hope still contained in the future.

Positively Stubborn

Adamantly refusing to give up on one’s dreams

But pursuing them, despite the challenges

Or difficulties, that in unrelenting manner, stand

As sentry to prevent the valiant effort of dedication

On the path forward, and attempt to submerge hope

Within the looming and treacherous valleys of despair,

And yet, refusing to lie vanquished, the determined spirit

Still persistently pursuing that which it yearns to achieve,

Negotiating no alternative but committed steadfastness,

Is a commendable positively stubborn attribute that all must

Endeavour to embrace and strive to earnestly uphold, to

Guard one through the rugged terrain of life, to the victorious

Plains of never giving up for want of those dear and personal dreams.

Curb The Negative

Do not let the ripples of irritation in life
Be they constant, or intermittent, detract
From the promise and joy of living earnestly.
For they, possess the power and proclivity
Of attempting to consume or overshadow
Life to the disadvantage of sustained progress.

Therefore, make diligent entreaties towards
Focusing on the nature and promise of hope.
Accentuate that which inspires the spirit to soar.
Convert the destructive into positive momentum,
And propel yourself forward to the realization
Of the dreams you envisioned for the fullness
Of the bountiful gift of the life that is yours.

How’s Enigma

The riddle of when how became how
May not be as confounding as
How simply, how became how
Or how, how manifests as how.
And may not be as troubling
As what in its essence came first.
How it evolved, or how it was once.
Or what was, before how became how, and
What transpired for how to assume how, or
What came to be, for how to develop into how.
Nonetheless, whatever the order or transpired,
What how may be now or came to be, may not
Necessarily be as important to decode as
Whether how should remain how.

Eternal Comfort

They may assail your being…
Take all your earthly possessions.
Unjustly curtail one’s liberty
Confiscate all they think you own
And trample on one’s humanity
Even unto the cessation of mortal life.
Yet, they cannot even if they try
Touch the Almighty God and Creator
Who provides the divine assurance
Of Eternal bliss, even if they try.
Thus in all matters, rely completely on
He who is greater than greatness, and
The generous benefactor of all grace.

Courage’s Pull

When courage’s conviction visits thy habitation
Will thou in earnest, welcome and adopt it fully,
Or will thou dismiss its valiant entreaties, to stand
Ramrod under its auspices, for its just and fearless cause.
Courage precipitates the flourish of advanced audacity.
Thus, imbibe its virtue, don it ardently as shield and sword.
As shield, to proceed valiantly when its essence is required,
Or to protect you, from the putrid tempest of ugly repression
When eventually you are counted amid the virtuous assembly.
As sword, will you deliver from the pulpit of righteous indignation,
Rendition, powerfully piercing through the cloak of brutality, to
Challenge the venomous sting of atrocity spearing tormented souls.
Tarry not, courage still beckons to all, zealously seek to embrace  it,
To its fullest dimension, and emboldened by it, confront that which
Is intent on destroying all that is of positive measure in humanity.

Wisdom’s Trails

Where lieth the true essence of wisdom.

Does it just accompany the chronology of age

Simply because the years turn into decades of life.

Is it found through one existence defining experience

Or amid the multitude of challenges encountered during

The phases shaping the course of our fragile mortality.

 

Is it manifest in considered circumspection, probably

Applied in varying degrees to ensuing circumstance and events.

Is it the unique province of a few who then impart it wisely

As revered sages to the expectant seeking its solemn direction.

Or is it a derivative of the collective thoughts, then spoken, or woven

Into bound volumes of scholarly accounts for the edification of many.

 

Could it be, that it is encountered in the calm solitude of the walk

Through the parks and gardens of contemplation, or arises from

Deep within the routine of the communing with the supreme being.

Possibly, it may reveal itself in one of or a combination of these.

Yet, the one who finds wisdom should guard it utmost jealously

For in its midst, is contained the invaluable compass to navigate life.

 

Thus, irrespective of where its imprints are encountered,

When indeed in its time, it attends to your discernment

And commands by its very stature one’s rapt attention

Court it fully, and abide wholeheartedly by its doctrines.

With astuteness, hold firm to its priceless undeniable virtues

To guide your judgement, utterances and all undertakings.

That its essence, may steadfastly illuminate your course

With its sagacious attributes to your enduring benefit.
