Am I Nearly There Yet?

 

 

Satan stalks and harangues me

Struts about in front of me

With the confidence of a ‘has-been’

Revelling in past glory.

 

He showed me my failings,

Pinpointed my weaknesses,

Reminded me of others—

Colleagues, neighbours, former friends

Who’d fulfilled their dreams.

 

He poo-pooed my aspirations

Questioned my commitment

Dissed my endeavours and

Doubled over with mirth

At the idea of my success.

 

But…

 

Faithful Father-God came alongside me

And staunchly upheld me

Declared that He was with me

Despatched his Holy Spirit to help

Comfort, counsel and encourage me.

 

So…

 

I climbed out from the place of self-pity

Forsook Procrastination’s highway

And trudged the path of Perseverance.

 

My journey may be long and arduous

But I will grasp that trophy of achievement—

Since sooner or later, I’m bound for success!
