Waking up to yet a beautiful day
I force myself to face the day with new insights
But I feel no strength to welcome this new day
For my strength is melting away in the morning mist
Leaving me chained to my own inhibitions
My stomach swells with toxic fumes of inhibitions
Slowly, the toxic inhibitions shatter my world
With a loud bang that leave my self-worth dismantled
As sparks of negative energy swallow my positive thinking
I spurt fear, and claim the hand of courage
As I walk forth in light of content
I can see clearly and embrace my self-worth
Because I have decided to let go of all my inhibitions
I reject all inhibitions
I denounce finding comfort on the bathroom floor
I accept challenges of life
I free myself from all forms of inhibitions
I find my global self-worth well-balanced
And when I fall, I fall on a solid foundation
Inhibitions will not claim any part of me
My grip on global self-worth is what keeps me stay afloat
As I disgorge all that holds me back
And free my self by elevating my self-concept
Adorned like a flower in a thorny garden
Your undeniable strength shines out to all
When the gardens begin to waste out
You permeate your sweet fragrance
And bring stability
You’re the anchor and the source of courage
You shine light to thorny gardens
And bestow freedom to all fragile plants
Shine out, shine out all blossoming flowers
Your time to extricate yourselves has come
March in harmony and lift the lamp of peace
For you will stand as one!
The gates of democracy are open
And your tomorrows will continue to be
As blissful as a calm ocean after the storm
How do i define my life?
I can definitely say with conviction that every step I have taken has led me to where I am today.
People say life is full of “ups-and-downs,” well, I certainly agree. It is evident that when I look at my life and where I have come from, it is easy to just give up and dwell in my sorrows, but thats not the course I’m taking or leaving for my legacy.
Having this kind of outlook on life, has helped me look at failure and rejection with a different perspective, that is, a perspective of leverage. I have come to understand failure as a prerequisite of success. With that said, every person has got an obligation to either fight back with a bang by staying on your feet and taking a step of confidence or give up and lick your wounds.
In my life, I have fallen many times, I learned to pick myself up and faced life in all its ugly ways. I must confess, I’m still falling, but this is not going to stop me march towards my dreams, because no matter what kind of hurdles are in my way, I know I will eventually get there.
It takes perseverance, drive, focus, courage,persuasion, and hard work to get to where you want to be. And yes! it is not easy, it takes a strong minded person to overcome the hurdles of convenience and laziness.
For instance, my life, took me from Zambia, where most women are defined by marriage. I knew I was destined to do something different, but I had no idea and did not know where my life’s journey will end up to. Without giving up, my little steps of confidence landed me in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Without forgetting my core values, which are: perseverance, drive, focus, courage, belief and empathy, I testify that I’m beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.
Today I’m a college graduate from the University of Washington, with a bachelor’s degree in communications and social sciences. As I walked on 06/15/2013, I knew I was taking a step of confidence into a new chapter of my life, and now the sky is the limit.
I now believe that it is time to join hands with a reputable NGO to help the under privileged. This was the pledge I made, even when I had no idea how I was going to make a difference in the world, since I have the right tools I can do more and I’m so ready.
Finally I pledge to take a step of confidence to be a citizen of the world and join hands with a non governmental organization and make a difference.
