I have laboured all my life that I might get this seat but it seems as if the dream is not going to come through.
Through thick and thin, I have been busy climbing the ladder. As I was climbing, I was coming down and that makes frustration set in. I was frustrated down to my marrow that I almost gave up but thank God I did not give up because now I am closer than I thought.
At some point, I was not sure whether I was on the path or I am no longer on the right path. Everything felt as if life is not even for me.
There are days I will look up to the sky and talk as if I am seeing someone. Countless are the days when I will wet my pillow just to satisfy my day and console myself.

I have been given a seat at the seat of greatness. It is now left to me keep my seat.
Like before, no one was ready to talk and it seems there is a lot of secrets about the seat of greatness.
While pondering on what I can do to maintain my seat, I remember the saying,
Knowledge will get you to a position but attitude will keep you there.
That was all I need to know.
If you want your name to remain after you, create value.
If you want to maintain your position, watch your attitude.
Before you fill your cup, learn how to walk carefully first.
Till I cross your path again, I am like a ready made pen in the hand of the creator. I am
