Commissioned Life Poem by Valentine Mbagu


Father grant me a clearer vision of my mission,
To you, the world and my nation;
That there be no omission.

My life thus commissioned,
With full submission;
Paying full attention.
Defying all obstructions.
Ambitions, passions and obessions,
May be to your glorification,
To others an inspiration;
And all through generations,
Worthy to be mentioned.

And in all entirety,
Ensure that l a celebrity,
Do not sink into oblivion;
And die a nonentity.
But from obscurity,
Like sunshine;
Shine unto eternity.
