Expected Transformer

A person that acts as

The modifier of his environment

The changer of decayed lifestyle

The converter of evil to good

The extinguisher of corruption

The promoter of comfort

The conductor to prosperity

The modernizer to development

The Pacesetter to posterity

The Trendsetter to a happy people

But, have you ever wondered -

Who is the expected transformer?



I hear some say

Their fathers are just not the best

Because their wrongs,

Are way more than their rights

If only they have opportunity

To father a child

They will train and nurture their kids

To be useful and worthwhile

Well, it is a good dream

But, if I may ask

What change have they caused?

To those around them

That is useful and worthwhile?


I hear some say

Their teachers are not just good

As Educators of persons

Because their teachings

Are boring and unexciting

If only they are employed into teaching

They will make their classes or lectures

Interesting and Attention-grabbing

Well, it is a good prospect

But, if I may ask

How many people around them

Have they caused to be interested?

And attention-grabbed by them


I hear some say

Their leaders are the problem they have

They make so many promises

But none or very little

Have been fulfilled or executed

If only they have the opportunity

To lead in same position

They will solve all the problems

Of the people they serve

Well, it is a good proposal

But if I may ask

What solutions have they implemented?

To their environment or the people around them


I hear some say

Their leaders are the problem they have

They make so many promises

But none or very little

Have been fulfilled or executed

If only they have the opportunity

To lead in same position

They will solve all the problems

Of the people they serve

Well, it is a good proposal

But if I may ask

What solutions have they implemented?

To their environment or the people around them


I hear some say

The government is corrupt

They use pen to steal public funds

Inuring resources for their family

If only they have the opportunity

As one of the government official

They will channel the funds

To the expected destination

Well, that is what we ever pray for

But, if I may ask

Have they stopped cheating with their pen?

And receiving of cheats

In their exams hall while writing


I have discovered that

Most people above us

Seems to be doing the unexpected

We must not be there

To cause a transformation

But, we must be transformed

To be the expected transformer

We should also remember

That science have discovered

That there are forces everywhere

I believe if we can deal with the forces

Around us and with people around us

Only then, can we be the Expected Transformer

An interesting piece. God is the supreme transformer and perhaps with His strength we, too, can be transformers in a small way.

It is so very easy to say what we would do if we were in that position, when and if we ever reach that pinnacle, would we know that God is the giver and transformer. Knowledge is the key...Thank you for a very thought provoking piece...
