His mind was like a snail crawling slowly on the ground.
He was behind, confused and lost in his venture to learn.
So many obstacles stood in the way of this little child.
To overcome them, he never once did try.
He gave up too easily without a fight.
He thought less of himself every day and night.
Opportunity does not knock; it just presents itself at the door.
But little did this child know.
He needed motivation to try and move on.
He needed a friend or someone.
He needed to learn how to apply his ability
to grab hold of every opportunity.
His first step to success began with this friend,
who took his hand and guide him to the end.
The words his friend had spoken were his success key,
“Here’s my shoulder, you can lean on me.”
