KEEP AT IT

 


I want so much to scribble,

As my pen I glide on the sheet,

With the ink flowing ceaselessly,

Yes, there is so much I could pen down,

However, the lexicons elude me,

They avoid me like a plague.


Everyone keeps saying it is in me what I am give,

For now at my table I am seated,

Trying just to string together some phonemes, morphemes and words.

For in not giving up, the goal we attain,

In persistence, the aim we achieve,

In diligence, the height we reach,

And surely, better we would become at it.

As I intend to lay down my pen, alas, one last sentence I've got to string,

With a message as clear as crystal,

Keep at it dear friends,

For then you'd feel the joy of fulfilment at the end.

Yours in scribbling,

NURAINI, NAFISAT ABDULRAHMAN
