Plain The Body,Train The Mind

What I'm About

Enlightenment for the masses. We hope for Deeper Spirituality for those who are not merely desiring political correctness and also those who have not concluded that right and wrong is defineable only by the popular media.
LEGACY IS ALL

 

                                                      LEGACY IS ALL

                                                        ESSIEN JOSHUA UKOH

 

Three neighbors left the station on the coach

Their visions and vocations a-calling

Well!!...

The tipsy driver did them in

Their friends and dependents made

          losers, mourners and then -

                   Gainers

 

Three neighbors

         -a  farmer

         -a teacher

         -a preacher

The first left wealth for his family

The second his wisdom in many young minds

The third left God’s book

 In a young, but pregnant, first responder’s hand-

                  a young commercial sex worker-

     as his life ebbed away, with a whisper

            “Why don’t men heed stop signs?’’

 A young commercial sex worker.

 A harlot…

A harlot who remembered God, even as Rahab did

Remembered God’s mercy and his call for change

A harlot whose child became an anointed…

            Chosen

                  to stand for God

                  to preach the word

                  to retell the tale

  of how three friends left the station

  and the world

But left gifts for men

       Wealth for a few

        Wisdom for the selected

        and Truth for all men

 

An anointed with a mission to remind all men

That,

Sometimes it’s not what you go out with that matters,

But what you leave behind you

              When you go.
