    For pending change to become a reality
    It must in reality be boldly made
    It can't be experienced
    By those who remain afraid
    And continue to hold on
    To outmoded past days
    And keep on travelling
    In the same limitted ways
    Who won't open their hands
    And turn loose what they are now holding
    Who cringe in shame and fear
    Terrified of an anticipated scolding
    From the ones who are thwarters of change
    The ones who selfishly seek to hold back
    The blossoming future's promising wealth
    Who continue to threaten and attack
    For they don't see for themselves
    Any place in the promising scheme
    So they selfishly seek to destroy
    The reality and the dream
    For the ones who have promise
    If they would only let go and soar
    Would move to the limits
    And through future's rewarding door
    And realize that what they hold
    Is miniscule placed beside
    What is eminent for them
    If they conquer their fears and ride
    This they really need
    To be bold and succeed

    I am speechless right now because it just verified my need to just remain faithful and believe that whatever is ordained for me will be revealed as long as proceed without worrying about others'.

    Thanks for this enlightening moment.
