Poem

Magic is the power to influence the course of events

A mysterious and supernatural display

That cannot be comprehended

An art of wonder displayed

A super-higher feature in a man

That brings him before kings

But I have always wondered and ask -

Where is my magic?


As a singer

I have loved the art of singing

Being a soloist to sing like an angel

My quality time have been channeled to it

Seeing people sing incredibly

Yet could not sing like the known professionals

I have always wondered and ask-

Where is my magic?


As a businessman

Sales and profits have been my target

Displaying an art of wonder in the market

But have seen people make unusual sales daily

Their sales and returns are unimaginable

And i have not been there yet

I have always wondered and ask -

Where is my Magic?


As a student

Having an insight and flair for studying

Wanting to be the best educationally

Burning night candles

There are mates that are always above me

They are just unbeatable

I have always wondered and ask

Where is my magic?


As a teacher

Impacting knowledge has been my desire

Wanting to Change the world through education

Spending time reading and improving by books

But there are Pupils or students

That cannot be taught, because they are too slow in learning

I have always wondered and ask-

Where is my magic?


As an electrician

Having a flair for fixing things

Wanting to fix every electrical fault

And have been trained to combat electrically

In troubleshooting and brainstorming

Yet, there are faults I just cannot fix

I have always wondered and ask-

Where is my magic?


Searching for answers

I stumbled upon these words in a Holy Book

“…the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong,

Neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding,

….but time and chance happeneth to them all” (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

Then I understood that there are things

We desire to fulfill

Sometimes they come true in our time

And sometimes they cannot come true in our time

Yes oh....

God has designed us for a destination only known to him, which he reveals to us bit by bit.

Only the designer of a product can produce a MANUAL for his product/creation.

We just have to turn to him for our divine MANUAL in-order to fulfil the reason for our creation.

Thanks !

Romeo's Quill for your comment.

I'm delighted to have you around.

I'm pleased to make your acquaintance, and your verse was quite introspective upon the limitations of human conduct. I sincerely believe that if you are looking for ' magic '(wisdom), then ask God, and it shall be given to you according to your faith, and His purpose.

To serve to one's ability is enough, I suppose, but be careful what you ask for , because you just might get it( along with the responsibility commensurate with your newly bestowed, enhanced abilities) lol!

Thank you;

Yours Sincerely,

Romeo's Quill

Thanks for coming around to read and comment on my poem !

Everything knowledge or skill that we can do displace are like Magic to those who cannot.

Yes, being limited even in what we are educated and very skillful in is not a reason why we can not get to our desire peak and it cannot stop us from displacing the God in us.
