My strength


My strength didn’t come from lifting weights, my strength came from lifting myself up cause most times in my life I have been let down and most people I trusted with all my heart ended up disappointing me.

Nobody really knows how many times I’ve sat in my room all alone crying when all hopes seem to be lost.

Nobody knows how many times I’ve had to hold back my tears cause the people I love and trusted always seems to let me down.

At times I feel like giving up on love because my life has been a scenario of no love lost no love found and this world to me is filled up with lots of fake and deceitful people.

At times I feel like giving up on my hopes and dreams cause the struggles and pains coming my ways are just too much for a young guy like me. 

At times I feel like giving up on kindness cause lots of people I came across in my life has been very cruel and heartless to me but I was raised properly by my mother with good manners showing others respect and the zeal to always help those who need my support. 

There’s a beauty in being rejected, neglected, unsupported and disappointed by people cause this has taught me to only rely on God and learn to uplift myself upward creating my own sunshine and happiness myself.

I have made a decision in life which I have chosen to shine eventually after all the storms I am presently going through because I believe if I can shine from within then the spotlight will just be a plus to my outstanding qualities.

I know my past and present life might have been filled with lots of sorrows, pains, and agony but I confidently believe in my future filled with lots of joy and prosperity

I know that everything will soon be alright and that eventually, things will work out for good in my life.

I know God’s promises and covenant in my life will surely come to the past and whatever is meant for me will surely be mine.

I know all I need is consistency, perseverance, and more dedication believing in my prayers and hard work.

I know working on myself and attaining perfection can be one of the hardest things in life but it’s always good to invest in oneself because so much more comes afterward and with God all things are possible.
