Untitled by King Olulu


At times I feel I move as fast as a rock in a flowing river,
But I’ve got to keep moving.
For destiny happens because of us and not in spite of us.
I heard if I can’t fail, it does not count.
I was told failure is neither fatal or final,
I read that, the fact it does not work out every time means it is something that frightens others.
So I need more courage than common sense,
More love than logic
And more faith than fear.
For if I falter in the days of adversity, my strength is weak,
And life never rewards the weak.

aka King Olulu, not from Zulu.
