A born winner
Destined to touch the stars
But behind the broad smile of success,
Were hidden childhood scars..
With no one to guide
Or show what is wrong or right..
He worked through endless days;
He was tested time and again
Until he surrendered to God; heart and soul
And the merciful showed him the path
That lead to his goal..
But success never made him proud and greedy,
He lent a helping hand to
The distressed, poor, and needy..
And God rewarded him,
For all the nights he prayed and cried.
For he is now a man of fame and honour
With a heart truly content and satisfied.
