Because I Dared To, I am!

By ‘Dotun Olalusi

I am a singer;
Not because I was born to;
Not because I’ve the sweetest tune;
I’m a singer because I DARED to sing
And I will never stop learning how to.

I am a writer;
Not because I can write a hundred pages;
Not because I published books and ‘s a g e s’
I’m a writer because I DARED to write
And will not stop learning how to.

I am a dancer;
I know I haven’t got the best dance moves;
Neither have I t h e n e w e s t dance shoes;
I am a dancer, because I DARED to DANCE
And I will always learn to improve.

I edit
Not because ‘I am so grammatically perfect’
Neither is it because I know all literary precepts;
I edit, because I DARED to start
And I will always seek to improve.

I am a poet;
Though, I don’t have a thousand publications yet;
Neither do I’ve a million feathers in my nest;
I’m a poet because I DARED to
And I will not stop learning things, anew.

I always win;
Not because I was born to;
Not because I know a thousand rules;
But because I DARED to learn ONE rule
yea, because I LEARNT one rule, a thousand times.

the ‘ONE RULE’ Is the Bible: Phil 4:13, Matt 25:14-30
Praise BE to God!

I am!

I can do all things through Christ!
