I liked the first stanza. It was captivating. It made me drop my phone, to think for a while and pick it up again to continue reading the rest of the poem.

I love the 3rd stanza.

And i got caught up in the last line that says "we're looking for help but in fact it help that really looking for us😲.

It made me realize that every little action makes a change.

The description of the marriage of confidence and articulation is the highlight for me: "That you thought you were the one looking for help, when it is help that is looking for you".

What a nice piece!!

I felt touched by the third poem which says β€œThat you thought you were the one looking for help, when it is help that is looking for you.” Reason – I think deeply and thoughtfully I found out that a lot of people just like you took upon them the spirit of help to help others.

Verse 2 is more than it seemsπŸ”₯πŸ”₯…. I had to read and read over it again before I could get hold of it. This is what I was able to derive from the verse

β€œThat success requires a combination of persistence, attentiveness, patients, (The ambulance is experiencing Lagos traffic...), and trust in oneself and one's abilities.
