Treasure Threshold- Dedicated to Institute of Petroleum Studies, University of Port Harcourt

    

Excellence of spirit begets
Excellence of mind.
Innate in some it resides
Others strive to imbibe.

Climbing a mountain requires
Skills commensurate with the task.
Energy sapped, discomfort induced
Food eaten, transforms to vapour.

Friends abandoned below 
For the joy of mentors above.
Looking not below still
Focus placed above ever. 

To the uninformed observers
Such unpardonable self-hate.
Yet the ascension unabated
Leads to a glorious beginning.

Exhilaration marks the arrival,
The arrival goads inspiration,
Inspiration steers to fulfillment,
Welcome to the centre of excellence!


  Peter Edoziem
