»I have learnt«

by Tsholofelo Mooketsi, April 23, 2009

I have learnt to live my life expectantly
Even in my dreadful journey of darkness
I have learnt to positively sustain myself
Regardless of the hurdles I stumble upon as I live life
I have learnt to believe in the energies of the universe
And to define and clarify my purpose through these energies
I have learnt to trust my inner desires to guide me through life
I have learnt to loose myself in my imaginations
As it is this mental pictures that fuels my desire to achieve
I have learnt to dream because dreams make me
I have learnt that life is what you make it
And that your ability to achieve is measured by
The amount of your love and commitment to your goal
I have learnt that things become impossible in life
When we start to believe that they are
Otherwise everything always remains possible
I have also learnt that one remains uninformed
Until one makes an effort to seek information
Finally, I have learnt that your life is in your hands
And only you can shrink it, stop it or let it happen
I choose to make mine happen!

Free my heart from the chains of my unfulfilled life / My life of living with no zeal for life / My life of living with a dead soul and a distorted mind / My life of breathing with no air to my lungs / Living life with no purpose is like living no life / Going with the flow of life with your heart  sign in to read more »
