God Of All Creation |The Anthem Comission

30 Day Poetry/Prose Challenge |Day 6

 

Oh God of all creation / Bless this our land and nation / Justice be our shield and defender / May we dwell in unity / Peace and liberty / Plenty be found within our borders.

Let one and all arise / With hearts both strong and true / Service be our earnest endeavour / And our homeland of Kenya / Heritage of splendour / Firm may we stand to defend.

Let all with one accord / In common bond united / Build this our nation together
And the glory of Kenya / The fruit of our labour / Fill every heart with thanksgiving.

 

-Lyrics by Graham Hyslop, G. W. Senoga-Zake, Thomas Kalume, Peter Kibukosya and Washington Omondi (The Anthem Commission)

Of Life’s Journey & Courage|Thomas S. Monson

Life’s journey is not traveled on a freeway devoid of obstacles, pitfalls, and snares. Rather, it is a pathway marked by forks and turnings. Decisions are constantly before us.

To make them wisely, courage is needed: the courage to say, ‘No,’ the courage to say, ‘Yes.’ Decisions do determine destiny. The call for courage comes constantly to each of us.

It has ever been so, and so shall it ever be.

Africa, Arise |Kwame Nkurumah

30 Day Poetry/Prose & Spoken Word Challenge |Day 20 

 

“Countrymen, the task ahead is great indeed, and heavy is the responsibility; and yet it is a noble and glorious challenge – a challenge which calls for the courage to dream, the courage to believe, the courage to dare, the courage to do, the courage to envision, the courage to fight, the courage to work, the courage to achieve – to achieve the highest excellencies and the fullest greatness of man.

Dare we ask for more in life?”

30 Day Poetry/Prose & Spoken Word Challenge |Day 18

 

Many a night from yonder ivied casement, ere I went to rest,
Did I look on great Orion sloping slowly to the West.

Many a night I saw the Pleiads, rising thro’ the mellow shade,
Glitter like a swarm of fire-flies tangled in a silver braid.
