The poem I’m about sharing is going to be on cerebral palsy. Before then, I would like to define cerebral palsy. 

Cerebral palsy commonly referred to as “CP” and described by loss or impairment of motor function. Cerebral palsy is actually caused by brain damage which could be of brain injury or abnormal development of the brain that occurs while a child’s brain is still developing before birth, during birth or immediately after birth. 


It was time again  for another birth

A child cried and everyone smiled

This child was heaven’s special 

She grew up and the whole world saw her. 

She was not broken but beautiful 

Challenged not challenging 

Her progress may be slow, accomplishments she may not show. Though she will require extra care, she is not a burden, she is Blessed. 

At the play ground she will see her folks run here and there. She may not be able to run or laugh or play. 

Her thoughts may seem quite far away. So many times she will be labelled “Different”, helpless and disabled. 

Yes she may be Different but not less. 

To the world’s eye, she may never be normal but she can be better than normal. We all have the same smile on our face. 

She is strong not because she wants to be but because she has to be. 

Cerebral Palsy is not a choice but Acceptance. Though it can be defined, having cerebral palsy does not define the person that has the condition. 

PS: It is their disability and not who they are. 

This is Kobby kyei, CEO of ptus_foundation, a new NGO. 

He is a strong advocate for cerebral palsy and physically challenged children. Let’s help in supporting him.

    Attacks will come in many different ways and some of these will come against your happiness. Sometimes our words will be twisted, sometimes we will be ostracized for our views, sometimes we will be deliberately misquoted, sometimes we will be the victims of a whispering campaign where we cannot even pin down the things said against us. 

     The point to remember here is that, these things will happen from time to time. It’s part of what it means to be human. A thing I know, “plainly”,we won’t always get along with everyone. You might want to patiently put up with each other, but in so doing, know that you are going to have to put up with a lot of nonsense, so you better get used to it.

       Sometimes people hear what they want to hear and believe whats ever been said regardless of the facts. Do not be overly surprised when despite our best efforts or actions trying to prove them wrong are criticized. It’s possible that in our haste to defend ourselves, we will talk too much, too soon and with too much emotion. Sometimes it will be best not to explain yourself. 

       You know you are in the victim mode when you feel wronged, usually by friends involving unfair accusations, where you cannot get your side of the story fairly told. The whole thing eats at you day and night and you become consumed with the issue until you lose your focus completely and may say foolish things that hurt yourself and others and nothing is solved.

      Though you are falsely accused, always mind what comes out of your mouth, do not say anything in a heated moment that you will regret later.

     Even if they are unfairly judging your heart, do not presume to judge theirs. Sometimes the Lord uses these very painful times to move us on to a new level in life. I do not think we can always see in advance what God may be doing in these times of trouble, but He’s always there to support us. Just be calm, pray and leave the results in God’s hands.

           The Rage

It boils within 

Slowly poisoning all that it touches 

It is all consuming 

Anger does not desist from destroying sensibilities 

It feeds upon itself and burns a flaming 🔥 red. 

Anger is not love 

Anger is self centered 

Anger takes control 

It makes you hate

Anger wants you to hurt

Anger makes everyone walk away from you

Anger holds you back, especially from healing. 

The best thing you can do for yourself is to be validated for your feelings and shed your anger.

PAIN WITHIN (& how to cope)

The pain within this heart ♥ 

The pain you see through my eyes 👀 

Pain is knowing that you will never be mine, though I once would have been wholly yours. 

My eyes 👀 are like a burden that you can see right through me. 

A pain you know of, but cannot explain 

A pain so fierce, you go insane. 

The unknown pain that clutches your heart ♥. 

No pain I ever felt was that one single broken heart ♥ that had been felt behind and never got a chance to be healed. 

There is a way out of this pain but somehow I cannot see it. 

But the light 💡  and hope within these wall of pain, I can hear it say; 


Feed your soul with happiness and never let pain consume you heart ♥. 

If you always say there is no way out, then it will always lead you to more suffering and sadness 😔.

Gratitude is strongly and constantly associated with greater happiness. Try to cultivate a spirit of good thing that comes to you. 

   And all because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your  gratitude. 

Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

If you are not grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more, the greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. 

Happiness comes not from merely saying thank you occasionally but from having a grateful disposition. That, in turn, protects us from feelings of entitlement, envy, and resentment, which would alienate people from us and rob us of  joy in life. 

Read Hebrews 6:10, 1Thessalonians 5:16,18.

At the end of the day let there be no excuses, no explanation, no regrets. Be you, Be free, Share and Be grateful.

           For so long I have lived in a

         misery, hit the bottom of the sea. 

      There wasn’t anyone in the world 

       who knew what was happening 

     to me, and it didn’t feel like anybody 

        would  help me or even cared. 

     All I had was my own self, I felt I 

                 wasn’t good enough. 

          Time was ticking, pain was

         increasing, the further I run, 

        the more I’m getting nowhere,

              I denied to see my fears.  

       Cheating myself with the words 

         ” I am fine”, but behind those

       eyes of mine, I see pain, I feel so

      disconnected from the world. No one

                       notices me. 

  But nowadays I learned to accept the 

    truth, I learned to open up my eyes. 

 I notified am getting stronger in this

  fight, amazing as it is, the PAIN dies.

             (A GIFT TO SHARE “☺ “)

How do you respond when you are given a beaming smile?, you mostly smile back and probably feel happier too. 

Genuine smiles, whether from friends, a family member or total strangers are infectious and evoke good feelings. A sincere smile indicates positive emotions such as amusement, happiness and pleasure. 

Smile, indeed is built into our nature. You do yourself a favor when you smile, it increases your confidence and reduce feelings of stress. 

Perhaps, you may feel that life’s anxieties give you little cause for smiling. Remember, though, that feelings are usually preceded by thought. (Philippians 4:8,9).

As hard as it may seem, try dwelling on positive and pleasant things whenever possible. Do not wait for others to smile at you. Take the initiative – add a little happiness to someone else’s day. 

See your smile for what it really is; a divine gift that enriches you and the people around you. 

KEY: the words “Happy” and “joy” and their derivatives occur hundreds of times in the Bible. Try reading a page or two, who knows? You may also find yourself smiling more often. 

  • Matthew 5:3,10
  • Philippines 4:6,7.

His heart is as cold as ice 
I try my best to cave through but everything freezes. 

Let me in! I beg. 

His heart; consumed with fear,

Too drunk within his emotions, coward he is 

His walls are up again 

With emotions scarred into his skin with markings of a pen. 

Voice shaking, confused and lost in his thoughts. 

He tells me goodnight, talk to you later. 

My heart screamed No! 

But my lips moved, only for me to say okay. 

Tears well up my eyes

I got sucked into his darkness. 

I let my heart deceive me, believing in something that is long gone. 

And now all my tender parts have departed:

  • Icy frost
  • Rock cold

They do not mind when you fall behind.

They do not mind when the world crashes down around you. 

They do not mind when you strive to have a better life.

They do not mind when you are locked up in jail. 

Nobody really cares when you live a life full of shame, when you are troubled and hurt. 

I see them coming after my soul because I had no one to lean on. 

They wanted to take control. 

They wanted me to believe in all the material things like my life depended on it. 

They say it is only what the world had to offer. 

This burden I bare is so hard. 

I know I want to get the most out of life, but if trouble must come, let it come because I am protected by the Most High (JESUS). 


In order to survive 

I rise on a prayer everyday,

That is all I got to take me through .

“PRAYER”; ……. Helping me free myself from everything that holds me captive. 

I will not give in because I AM NOT AFRAID.
