Talking to Myself...Again

Don’t daintily tread each timid footstep,
Or carefully cajole your heart’s desire.
You see if you know now then you knew it then.
No relief will come but your soul will tire.

Don’t blindly beckon to what you think you
Want or to your beliefs become a liar.
Never travel a course not of your own
To what others but not you aspire.

Do not wantonly act against yourself,
Or prevent your own dreams from reaching higher.
From deep within you will smoulder away
‘till your true destiny burns in the fire.

So trust yourself, you know all that you want.
Don’t put your faith in a figure of speech.
Don’t come to envy all you missed in time.
Reach high, reach far…just, reach.

Well, my poem was just a work of imagination, how a sadist gives pains... anyway, it is not true, cant be true cuz I cant even harm an ant.... or even pluck a flower....however, I write many things that I dont do...or cant do...just imagination..nothing else...anyway, thanks for commenting.. :)

    "Adeleke, i was a joking with you, pretending that i was hurt by it- otherwise i would not have ended my comment with "but is actually quite funny""

    Well I think you have to be careful with the way you ttalk to strangers especially on matters that have to do with personal opinion. I am not a Barcelona fan. I just wrote the poem “ red devils defeated” as my own way of being creative… take care
