By Tikum Mbah Azonga
Life is a struggle
And that's a fact
From the beginning to the end
Each person must therefore carry his cross
And walk the full length of the journey
There are no short cuts
And no helpers
That's the price to pay
For being a free tenant on God's earth
And freely breathing his air.
Life is also one big bubble
The bible has that for an act
But are we so down-trodden, my friend?
Then how about Jesus' mighty cross
Which could not be sold for money
Nor reduced by here-and-there cuts?
Yet for us he paid the ultimate price from birth
So, when we talk, let's also be fair.
