A healthy blend of realism and positivity!

I saw from afar

A man struggling to stand

But I saw beside him

Several bodies trying to pull him down

But there he was, not relenting

But so determined and focused


In his right hands, were 37 states

In his left hand, 774 local governments

And a total of about 170 million people on his head

Yet he still believed he could stand

Because his foot were guided

By several bodies of water

Thousands of natural resources but solid and liquid

And his foot stool was a green fertile and arable land


So with keen interest, I looked further

And behold on his head

Were great scholars, technocrats and leaders

Working tirelessly to show him the path

And provide all the encouragement he needed

But also, I saw clearly the bodies

Tied around his waist and pulling him down

Bodies of corruption, greed, deceit and misunderstanding
