Encouragement Poems

Be What You Want To Be
and Love What You Have

Poet Grant Ngobean


I believe in life we should be grateful
Of what we have and who we are.
A human being means be alive
And being alive means taking authority of your life.


When you meet challenges stand your ground
And donít be moved by the wind
A human being is like tent,
Has no foundation, when it rains it gets wet
When the wind blows it goes to
whichever direction the wind takes it to


With time it gets torn and has to be patched up, that is a life of a man
We go through different challenges in life;
They should make you and not break you
They ought to make you strong
And not discourage you; do not hold to the situation
Go through it and live on,
But remember the lesson learned through it


Live according to Gods calling; move in love, love peace and happiness
Life is too short to live in bitterness, anger and negativity
Empower yourself
And take authority; stop looking for wrong in others
Treasure the little that you have, work on it,
be happy and appreciate life
Do what you do best,
Last but not least humble yourself,
and let people see God through you
