Hill of Courage

By Oloyi Kehinde Thompson

Let the wailer wail
Let the disgruntled mumble
Let the bitten cry
Let the resentful groan

But the brave don’t cry
The wise don’t pretend
A fighter is a victor
Life is the arena

Challenges are spectators
A true victor ignore
Grittily gaze the goal
Glory is the prize

Valour is the virtue
Wisdom is the weapon
Endurance is the strength
Success is the judge

Don’t give up
Don’t ever give up
Don’t ever ever give up
Life is stubborn
You can’t be cold

  1. Very inspiring…one confusing stanza:
    Challenges are spectators
    A true victor ignore
    Grittily gaze the goal.. should this be Challenges as spectator/A true victor ignores/Grittily gazes the goal
    A victor would not be a spectator to the challenges but would deal with them. Otherwise, could you explain Challenges are spectators…
