Many feel that we are in the beginning of the ends of day. There are others who are growing weary of waiting and feel that since it has been so long in coming, that Christ is just not coming back! Christ told us this would happen. He also knew, and made known to us, that the time of His coming would be at a time we did not expect, known only to God. “45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 24: 45 – 51 (NKJV) “6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, ‘Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’ 7 And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.’ ” Acts 1: 6 – 7 (NKLJV) Christ Himself has told us to be ready,regardless of how long the wait may be. We are the servants and He is our Master. We should live each and everyday as if He was returning at any moment. I do not know when that will be,and neither does anyone else. Yes, the prophets have given us hints and happenings to look and watch for. Despite all that, we still must remember that God works on His time not ours. The prophecies seem to read as things happening over a period of time, some in years. What is the year of man, as compared to a year in God’s sense of time? I do not have the answer to that, and I do not believe anyone has a full comprehension of it either. There may be hints and indications of that sense of time, but nothing, to my knowledge, that states it as a positive fact, given by God. The point is, there is nothing to tell us, so we must work and testify to the world, as if Christ was returning in the next few seconds. That is what the master expects of His servants. Those who do not persevere to the end, will be found wanting, and will be surprised by His return, whenever it happens. They will receive the reward the Master determines they deserve. Pray for their perseverance, lest they receive the reward of the hypocrites. Those who persevere to the end, shall also receive the reward of our Master. He has appointed us to serve as overseers of His word to the world. He has apponited us to keep, and add to, His flock, till His return. We are to feed them with His word and truth and love. We are to care for them, till He returns and brings His Kingdom with Him and His angels. It will be a wonderful and glorious day when we see Him coming on the clouds of Heaven. We wait with anticipation for His calling to us, to bring us unto Him with the sound of trumpets and song. HE WILL RETURN WHEN GOD WILLS IT – WE MUST REMAIN FAITHFUL AND TRUE UNTIL THEN! WILL YOU BE READY?

I have been asked several times why I choose writing poetry and motivating people. Well, my answer is simple: If you find yourself in my side of life, you'll definitely be grateful about the simple things life offers. You'll come to understand that every single day is an opportunity, and a reason to be grateful. I love what I do not because I generate a flow of income from it, but because in what I do, I can define my life and at the same time give meaning to someone elses life. As a poet my perception to life and the things that happen around me is quite endearing. I see life from the angle of possibilities. "Having overtime understood that drooling over situations never change the results, I choose to be optimistic at all levels and sphere of life." Born into a humble background, where my Destiny helper took the pains of seeing me through school as his last born and integrate me into his blissful family. gave me quite the necessary lessons I needed to become the man I have grown to be. Life is simply amazing when you see situations as a class and a needed lesson. I am simply an observer, I try my best to sketch out my tomorrow from my today's views. As a motivator, I see every experiences as a needed tool to help my friends, acquaintance and the entire society towards making the right choices. When you appreciate the person you have become, you can easily define your life's journey from where you came from, having a clear vision and understanding of your desired destination. Self-discovery means many things. It means finding your purpose in life (we all have a purpose), it means digging deep into your childhood and revealing the experiences that shaped you... good and bad. It means realizing what your beliefs are and living by them. The effects of self-discovery include happiness, fulfillment, clarity and maybe even enlightenment! The journey however is not always an easy road. The journey includes fear, confusion, misunderstanding, doubt and literally re-visiting all your choices in life. I like to refer to it as reshuffling of the mind, your emotions and your surroundings (including the people in your life). It requires making some tough decisions and sticking to them. My journey so far has seen me cut people out of my life. I call them the “takers.” They were takers because I allowed them to be and it wasn’t until I realized that many of these relationships were one-sided — self- discovery — that I decided to cut them out. It has also seen me completely change the course of my life and start to follow my true passion and purpose (poetry and motivation). I have also started to set intentions and no longer have expectations from others — okay... this one is really hard for me and it’s a work in progress — but instead I have started to look within for answers. I’ve had several set backs along the way and I have no doubt I will have many more but, I’m not giving up. What I know for sure is that the journey is worth taking. I am slowly becoming my true self, more aware and more tolerant. I am learning how to pay attention to my feelings and understand myself better. What I know for sure is that I have had several unrealistic expectations, which have set up for disappointment. Apparently because I lie to myself. Why do we do this? Why do we lie to ourselves? And more importantly, why do we allow ourselves to get away with it? When someone else lies to me and I find out about it I freak out. “How dare he lie to me? Does she think I’m stupid?” but, we lie to ourselves profusely and even cover up our own lies by accepting them as truth in order to reassure ourselves that it’s okay!!! What I know for sure is that being true to my feelings and accepting the poet and motivator in me and also acknowledging him as well as validating him has released so much fear in me. It has released my fear of not being good enough as well as my fear of not living up to the expectations I set for myself. What I know for sure is that we are usually our own worst enemy. We hold ourselves back in so many ways and accepting who I am, helps me move away from that pattern. The freedom you will feel within yourself starts when you accept the person you are or have become without being bias. However, the universe will give you back in rewards when your passion and obsession for who you are and what you believe in supercedes the challenges and discouragement that comes from your distrators.
