One More Step


There is a need to put in one more step in all that we do. This article encourages us to always strive to move to higher ground at all costs.

An old man lying sick in bed is a million times better than the young fella lying in his grave.

African Saying

The truth is relatively available, but, the consumption is limited.

Believe me, there is more to life than an overabundance of what’s seen.

It is time we started grooming ourselves for the impossibilities ahead.

There is no man with nothing, you know.

Even an empty cup still contains air and light, which are more important than wine.

The golden eagle flies; the lion runs, and the same is the busy tiger.

The gorilla’s joy is in the jogging field, while the elephants prefer to walk in a herd.

Frogs, toads and grasshoppers hop out ways to make waves in the sand of time.

Well, the wise tortoise understands my tale, and so is the lazy sloth,

They must creep day in and out to survive.

Snakes and even the unstable worms still crawl.

The plant that lost the wind’s grace ends up dancing to the tune of the golden flame of fire.

Put out the light of impossibilities, take a space and still the ground.

Don’t be condemned by the self, take hold of you, and make you work for you.

In any condition, make sure that one more breath is possible.

This is enough to keep you going one more day and another.

Who said that you can’t fly?

If you’d tried only but a million times and it’s not working, then run.

After all, half a loaf is better than none.

If you feel running is nothing, jog my friend.

The kangaroo bounces off trouble to gain remarkable joy.

Still, if you can’t jug, learn to walk.

That’s what most people do anyway.

It’s quite easy,

Raise a leg, move it forward and also the other.

Do it again and again, and you will notice you’re moving forward.

If you can’t walk, please hop, hop out a way.

If hopping is an impossible task, try crawling.

Even babies already know how to crawl from birth.

Well, all the fingers are not equal.

If crawling is far from the possible, neither can you creep,

Please, my friend, beg a friend to move you.

Who knows if this act might move you to fly!

That which actually keeps you dead is hidden in the abyss of stagnation.

Just make sure you are moving.
