A MATTER OF TIME

I had once heard of a child of nobody,
Who later become a renowned somebody.
Albert Einstein was once the class
dullest,
But later recorded as the world
brightest.

Ben Carson was once regarded as
nonentity,
But he later esteemed as a celebrity.
And Barrack Obama, who is now being
celebrated,
Was formerly scorned and humiliated.
Certainly, Life is a
matter of time.
That you look like a beggar,
Not necessarily mean you can’t be a pillar.
Even if you sometimes score zero,
Doesn’t mean you can’t be a hero.
That everything seems rough and tight,
Doesn’t mean your future is not right and bright.
At times, when you are driven to the
wall,
Just strive hard in order not to
fall.
Since success in
life is just a matter of time.
Therefore, neither
be in a haste nor in a hurry,
Even if success
depends on accuracy and capacity.
If your life experience now is disappointment,
Doesn’t connote you can’t be rewarded with
an appointment.
Even if your
endeavors bring fruitless effort,
Your consistency and
persistency can bear fruitful result.
Remember, anxiety in life can make one to
be deformed,
But through hard
work and prayer, one can easily be transformed.
Since everything is
a matter of time.
Thus, don’t succumb to any devastating
condition,
As you will soon be crowned with a
pleasant position.
Remember, there is always a long
pleasure,
At the end of every tunnel of
pressure.
Therefore, erase
the terrible picture,
That the world
is painting on your colourful future.
Your obstacles
can turn into miracles,
And your
barriers can bring wonders.
Wait for God’s time,
things are made comfortable.
