I could see so clearly

I would like to introduce Undiscovered Poet
In his blog he wrote a poem that cought my attention so much

Focus on what lies ahead
as you wander afoot.
The horizon may look bright
and sparkle in the distance.
Many things might catchyour keen eye,
but lo!
sometimes what is most important
lies directly in front of you.

I hope he would not remain undiscovered, as his poetry has so much to tell. You can read about him in ~ L I P ~
With his teaching on focusing ahead, I find myslef seeing things so clearly



I Could See So Clearly
On a dead end
All tears and pain
No way out
All doors are closed
No gleaming hope
Seems the sea, so vast without a shore
I could see so clearly now
A new horizon
After every smile there are tears
After every pain there is relief
Life is a miracle by itself
The unforeseen trials
I’m here living it all

Dhahiri Naweza Ona

Mwisho usojulikana
Yote ni machozi na maumivu
Njia ya kutokea hakuna
Milango yote imefungwa
Hakuna mng , aro wa matumaini
Yaelekea bahari kubwa mno iso ufuko
Sasa dhahiri naweza ona

Fikira mpya
Kila baada ya tabasamu kuna machozi
Kila baada ya maumivu kuna faraja
Maisha ni shani
Majaribu yasiooneka
Niko hapa
Yote kiyaishi.
(Swahili Translation)

Like taking a step back to get a different perspective of what lies ahead. A vision that encompasses more.

Life is a miracle by itself

And also blessedly unpredictable. ^_^
