When they denied you a seat at their table, you walked away and made your own table complete with enough chairs.
When they slammed the door on you, you came back and bought the building.
When you fell, you rose back to your highest.
When you lost , you gained much more
When you got shot,you pulled out the spear, redesigned and shot back many more.
When you knelt before Him, you stood before millions
When no one stood up for you, you got the strength to stand up for millions.
When they broke you, you healed and moulded many others.
When they thought you had died, they watched in wonder as you got up with an army.
When they tried to put out your light, they ignited your raging fire.
When they moved you a step back, you got forward a million steps.
You slowed only to speed up.
What was intended to kill you, revived you.
You turned lemons to lemonade.
Every stone they threw at you, you built a pillar for your mansion
You left. You were never left.
You ate, you were not eaten.
When you spoke, you thundered
You intimidated, you were not intimidated.
You didn’t show up, the room showed up when you appeared.
You were not counted, you counted.
You were not simply seen, you were felt.
You were heard even with your mouth shut.
You didn’t try, you did.
You didn’t fail, you learnt.
You didn’t look at them, you let them look at you.
You didn’t follow, you led.
You didn’t lose, you let them win.
You didn’t shame yourself, you stretched yourself to new possibilities.
When life thought had put you down, you showed up, smiling war to ear and thundered “Niko kadi”
You cried rivers during the nights, but got up in the morning bright, resilient and resolved enough and accomplished the task.
It has always gotten better. Every set up not meant for good, turned up as a set up for a greater comeback.
Growth is a choice and life knew better not to leave you with no other choice but to grow.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE YOU.
