ASSURANCE | by Harrison Okeke and Adekunle Adewunmi

By Harrison Okeke and Adekunle Adewunmi.

Look into the mirror
Now look down
Not on yourself, at your legs.

Who else can fit in those shoes?
Life is not always a cruise
So, don’t strain yourself
It’s ok to fail, you’ll still possess.

Look in the mirror
Picture the future
Say to yourself,
I’d reach my mission.

Life is a mission
Focus not on Di-vi-sion
Gaze on the picture
Maze for the reward.

I have a vision
To impart my generation
Lighten their eyes,
Lead them into revelation
To rule the world.

Chima come, let me tell you a story
I know you are Special, don’t stroll
You must have a story
Before you attain the glory!

The road to success is always lonely
Bid your fears, don’t be weary
Believe in God, make some merry
His blessings can make your eyes teary.

Keep driving
Life’s an unending script, keep acting
Uncountable scripts,Limitless tries

Feel free to make amends
When you deem fit.

So, when life gives you lemon
Turn it to lemonades
Have an Assurance like Chioma
The God of Miracle go make you hammer.
