Every Day Inspiration, Day Three: One-Word Inspiration

Day Three:  One-Word Inspiration

When the world says, “Give Up,” 

Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”_ Author Unknown

Today I choose hope out of the six prompts I’m given

Each time I want something I think of belief,

Next question is faith the only way to  realize my dream?

The reply is no it’s not a good enough reason.

I was twelve, I lost my father, I left my most

beloved city because Mom wanted to go back 

to her roots where she grew up with her family.

within six months we landed in Grandpa’s 

house, this is where I spent nearly a year

Mom was happy, we the siblings explored

Grandpa’s village and were happy.

There was no school to go to, 

no fear of the nun for spending our 

days idly, in the middle of all this,

my mind was pre-occupied with 

the longing of studying in England,

perhaps it was a lofty dream,

given the fact I was in grade eight

when my father died, I didn’t even 

complete High School, how dare I have 

this ridiculous ambition, 

around that time my little 

sibling won a lot of money in 

‘get a word,’ competition, he offered to

pay for my trip, I instantly refused,

my wish is to win a scholarship,

which I knew was possible if I continue

my studies and reach a point where I 

can apply for a scholarship!
