Destiny beckons

Updated on January 25, 2019

Born in a manger

the world's Saviour, naked and bare

wrapped in swaddling bands

left for men to smile and stare

first came the oxen and then the ass

next, the man Joseph, standing fast

Mary cradled her infant

And the Shepherds did chant

Along came the Magi

With their gifts preceding Herod's cry

All in all -  a normal enough birth

with the trappings of poverty - welcome to earth!

So, sometimes, do we arrive this planet

bawling from our Mothers' wombs like a nine-month comet

Some to a silver spoon, some to gold

and some to a wooden spoon, withered and old

But amongst the lot, irrespective of origin

Champions are born, keeping their generation a-waiting

It doesn't matter the background you come from

What matters is your desire to succeed and break from the norm.

Jesus fulfilled His destiny and so can you

He paved the way for your success and subsequent breakthrough

Being a champion is a matter of attitude

Not wealth, status and enduring solitude

Just aim for the moon - someone once said in my ears

For even if you miss, you'll still land among the stars!!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
