My feet beat a determined path on the ground.
I am walking towards my future this time around.
There are many obstacles; challenges abound.
So many things are happening, so many ups and downs.
But I walk with my head high; insecurities are nowhere to be found.
Nothing can stop me now, neither lions nor rabid hounds.
I see a future lined with gold, or just Dollars and Pounds.
I am going where I am supposed to be, in success I am bound.
They try to call me back-I can hear the sounds.
‘You can’t catch me now!’, I shout aloud.
The works of my hands will be fruitful; I will make my family proud.
I take deliberate strides towards my future, like a wind-propelled cloud.
