Better Today
They sold to us many
things and it shaped our reflections.
They told us
different tales and it fashioned our thoughts.
They taught us many
things and it made us who we are.
There’s a clause
because amidst all these things were our lives and the reality we faced each
Some of us gave in to
the negligence of becoming more and we settled for who they said we are.
Many of us try to
wriggle ourselves out some succeed and some give up along the way.
Truth is, we cannot
change what has happened but we can change how it defines us. We can choose to
handle our lives differently from now on.
We can choose to do
better and be better. You don’t have to necessarily look for things outside
you, grow your inner self and peace. So yes sometimes it might require us to
walk this path alone, know that you’re never alone God walks these paths with
you, he is always there.
