Read Poem: Paint yourself, by Phil Utumapu

Freedom calls my name like a mother searching for her lost child.

Do not chastise me with criticism, instead, free my spirit with love and understanding.

Discipline me with your wisdom, showing me the path with actions and deeds.

Anyone can tell a good tale, but proof walks in your shadow.

For the picture you paint of yourself will show the purpose of your life,

and your purpose, may save my life, in the end.

BY, Phillip Utumapu

Thank You Very Much.
