A Do Something Life, An Ode

By Ifeanyi Odilinye

Affirm not that our present life is a stagnant river

Does it not flow and ebb, Is God not the giver?

Or think you, that we should twiddle our thumbs forever?

Surely not, honest hearts must be in earnest

Or we fail to pass the Ecclesiastes test

Musing not required, ‘doing with all our might’-desired 

Enough of toying with procrastination’s pest

That destroys budding seeds in the heart it doth infest

Hear the trumpet call to present and positive action

Inquire not from the negative oracles of fear and doubt

Note them and face them with Divine unction

God will make a way – see what happened at Jordan’s mouth

Leaning on this staff of Godly understanding

Intending daily to take a bold step forward

Faint hearts now revived are purpose achieving

Endeavour’s rocket propels us onwards and upwards


This, my friends is what it takes to lead A Do Something Life.
