Featured poem: “The difference” by Emmanuel Ibok

This week, I am featuring the poem of a great poet and friend who also dubs as a brother in the person of Emmanuel Ibok.  The poem “The difference” is one that is educating, inspiring and revealing. It reveals the prowess of the poet as he preaches the theme of inspiration. Dreams are divine when they become realities. Please do visit his blog at: http://lordemmanuel.wordpress.com  

[Ibok Emmanuel in 2009 during an award’s night outing)

“We dream not so we be called Dreamers
but so tomorrow we can make it a reality.

We plan not so we occupy our time with something
but so we have a framework of things to do.

We work not because it’s mandatory
but because we are determined and we must work to prove it.

We achieve not because it is written in the stars
but because we dream, plan and work towards it”.

  3. This is a poem that hold a lot of insight. It is generous
    of you to give tribute to Emmanuel’s work. Very nice …

    Perhaps, you might like to read a story I wrote in
    tribute to my father and his hard work. The word “work”
    in the poem stood out for me.

    Thank you for posting and for stopping by my blog.
