[Mission 2022] InstaMotivation@9pm –  If You Believe By Abimbola T. Alabi


When your mind is set

On a splendid thing you want to do,

There are some who will shrug,

Like you don’t have a clue.


When you proceed,

Some will say it can’t be done

And that there is really no need

For you to take it on.


And halfway through,

Some may deem your progress small,

Or others will ask if what you’re doing

Is even worthwhile at all.


But when you succeed,

Then with flattering tongue,

The same folks will say they knew

That you’d do it all along.


Now, folks may mean well

When they say it can’t be done,

But then who is to lose

If they are actually wrong?


But if you take note of why

Some doubt your point of view

And stick close to those

Who see the strength in you,


If you put your faith in God,

No matter how tough it may seem,

If you work hard, if you believe,

You will achieve your dream.


For what others think,

Whether or not you’re strong or smart,

Sometimes, doesn’t really count

As what you believe in your heart.
