I remember when I started working
Very enthusiastic about learning as much as I could
I respected you at first glance.
Reality is hard to swallow.
Only GOD can change your heart
But how do I fight this?
Do I allow you to trample on me and destroy all my self confidence all over again?
I am disappointed in you
Because you still think that you are superior because you are ‘white’
My ‘black’ mistake is a verdict of incompetence to you
My ‘black’ opinion is a verdict of insubordination to you
My failure to pass is a conclusion of my stupidity to you
Tell me, what are you??
Just because I need this job doesn’t mean I’m not qualified
I am NOT your debtor
And you are NOT doing me a favour
I too have a purpose in life
I too have dreams that I’m reaching for
I too have hopes
And I too, want to contribute to the growth and stability of our economy
Even though you will not show me how to do this work
I will still learn
I will not give up
And I will believe in myself no matter what because
GOD is not dead
You employ me because you want to get your equity right
Your leverage is that you can and will fire me if I complain about any unfair treatment
You resent paying my salary
And you will not mentor me,correct me or praise me when i've done well on a task but instead, you would rather invest in criticizing me and keeping a record of my failures.
What have I done?
What is my crime that makes you treat me with such contempt?
You are not superior after all
Do you not realise that?
Your lack of professionalism in the work place is affecting my work, growth and life in this company.
The sad fact is, this is the norm across this country and maybe even around the world.
The question that I’m asking myself today is how to fight this.
Your heart is resistant to change
Even in church, born again and all, you are still Satan.
You refuse to love and bless this world
You just refuse
And please don't pass the buc because you’re not possessed
And it’s not the devil’s fault
You’re heart is just WICKED
How can you meet Jesus and be so VOID of love?
I can't change your heart BUT
I will fight you
I will build with those that want to build this country
And I will NOT allow you to make me feel useless anymore.
I too will rise to take my place of dominion and authority in this world and influence against you - healing what you break and restoring the confidence you destroy in people.
I will prove to you, that you can still be professional without destroying the hearts of the people that work for you.
GOD is Just.
Your own unfaithfulness will remove you
and your ingrate nature will dry all the rivers of blessing in your life.
It is decided
I will fight you with every last breath
and enforce the power of Good in this world
To the death
