It rained last night and I saw it down to my face,I was surrounded by the crowd of witness and they witnessed my falling down of my face and failing to shout out because I was scared it was one slip way from the tongue from loosing it but that did not affect me very much because I knew when you have nothing to loose and you, care less about things around you,but still you can give it a moment.However,it was one more hit than a wonder of thoughts in my life but I remembered what my father once told me please son ,understand that there is no one depressed in this house, we are not interested in the possibilities of defeat,because they do not exist and that gave me courage to rise and never to have fear ,because I was told when you became a man have patience and everything can be treated on fashionable theory and sometimes gets well in spit of the medicine because anxiety,fear and angish can not rain on real men.In this world I came to know that dreamers are the saviors as the visible world is sustained by the invisible,he who cherishes a beautiful vision,a lofty ideal in his heart will one day realize it. when I became a man,I came to know to desire is to obtain;to aspire is to achieve. Can man's basest desires receive the fullest of measure of gratification,and his purest aspirations starve for lack of sustenance? Such is not the Law. Such condition can never obtain, "Ask and receive". When I became a man I was told dream lofty dreams,and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be,when I became a man....!!!!!
