Word of Gold Poetry: Who are we?

WORDS OF GOLD (FROM DAD AND MUM)

WHO ARE WE?

We are standing on an apocalyptic threshold
A threshold of real possibilities
Where the dreams that hold the past are past
For the realms of the future have come fast
The uncertainties of the past crumble to dust
The fears of the years are no more
But the tears of hope rise up more and more
Now our thoughts call the shots
Strength of mind clears the blinds
We are drenched in strength as with the dew
Our time to shine is due
We are letting go of the failures of the past
We are dissolving the uncertainties of the future
We are rejecting the merchandise of falsehood against us
Peddled on the rumour market for centuries untold
Oh woman, take the bull by the horn and keep honking
Until you are heard
Until you get ahead
Until you become the head

We are WOMEN UNITED
We are WOMEN UNDAUNTED
We are WOMEN UNLIMITED

WHO ARE WE?

We are THE STANDPOINT

(Excerpt from the poem “WHO ARE WE?”)

We all have experiences in our past that we wish we’ll never remember. Whatever your story may be, the promise of glory will not be fulfilled by throwing a pity party with dishonourable guests from your past. You rather have to seize the opportunities in the present and hammer them with skill, consistency and endurance so they can dovetail perfectly with the high demands of the future. The present is a present; a gift. Work hard in it and with it so your future will be glorious.

Painting Title: GLORY BECKONS
Artist: SENYO K. ADZORO
“GLORY BECKONS” is the story of the everyday woman who may have something in a past that’s not pleasant. She however decides to focus on the greatness ahead of her. She decides to look up to the greater power that lives within  her.
