31 DAYS OF POETRY- DAY 26- YOU CAN BECOME- by Oluwatosin Olabode

You can have a heart that forgives
But to do this, you will need:
A person that has offended you
A willing spirit
A heart wanting to be freed from pain
And you, a person that knows we are all but humans
You can become deaf to the evil desires of this world,
The lust of the eyes,
The lust of the flesh
And the pride of life
But to do this
You will need: a sound moral belief
A good and obedient child
The Holy Spirit
And a Supreme God leading you all the way
You can become a responsible citizen of any country
But to be this you will need:
A person with focus
At least a person he is responsible for
A labour market and
A thousand excuses that won't put him down
You can become rich
But to get this, you will need:
A person that knows he is poor
A heart and mouth from which excuses are absent
A hand ready for work and
A sweaty face.
You can make him obtain favour from God
But to do this, you will need:
A gentleman
A good lady
A church
A priest for the joining and
A couple of witnesses
This is just one way
But the best I know...
...amongst many, that you can
You can become
