I Made It


I listened to my heart
Held onto my faith
Never gave up the struggle
Even though it was full of pains and sorrows

My journey of success
I filled it with hope
Didn't let my dreams die
And ignored my critics

I came up from nothing
And made it to something
A smile creeps on my lips
When i see myself flying with the birds like Richard Branson

Thanks to Almighty above
Who has blessed my hands greatly
Like a spider, they spin something out of nothing
For they are gifted like those of Ben Carson

I look up to the sky
Upon the shining of the sun
And glittering of the stars
I say to myself, 'finally i made it'.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
