Hi there….so after a very long while…Aanu Odedere is back on stage today but this time she brought with her a lovely yet thought provoking poem. Enjoy and do well to share your thoughts.
Standing still; looking scared
I knew it was a sinking sand
My feet are cold and aching
I knew this was not the place to lay for rest
But I did not have the courage to move.
Passers-by; wondering why,
The beautiful princess still remained there
Even when the wind was going fierce
I knew I could get torn apart
Yet I did not have the courage to move.
I looked around and saw no one left
Trusted allies have all gone far north
I couldn’t move an inch, it was my castle
I knew I could have it nomore
Still, I had no courage to move.
Memories swept through my mind,
Treasures of trust and hope laid up for years
Seems to crumble beneath my feet/grasp
Then I heard the sound again, tick tock
It is time to move, it said.
I looked ahead and saw a brighter light,
Which has been locked out by fear for years,
I moved my feet and ran,
I have lost much, but I will gain more.
Now, I have the courage to move.
#You are strong&able
