Trouble is Meant for Human Beings Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Odimegwu Onwumere, Nigeria Dec 4, 2006
Freedom of Expression   Poetry


Are you one of the people who say:
I was not born to suffer,
I was not meant to suffer,
I was not meant to borrow,
I was not meant to lack?
Then you are making a grave mistake,
Because trouble and its consequences
Are meant for human beings.

Sometimes things we dread and fear
Are the things that come our way,
And we cannot do anything
Than allow them to ooze away.

Though there is man-made trouble
And there is natural trouble,
We should dread the one
Human being who builds
To ruin the world.

The trouble we face
Is a step or chastisement to us
To attain the next step
Towards our dream world.
