*Title Of Poem* (TOP): *Life At Forty* - (LAF 2024) 

It's been roller-coaster journey,
Even in the womb of begottenment.
Indeed, like a field of tourney
This is new-life commencement 
I need His divine direction,
So I pray thee, every day
To bring about His maximum protection
Thus, every foot-print-step on the way
*Life At Forty*,
I ask for God's life-span of longevity.

Well, I reminisce the hood of West-Side-Amanful
On such suburban street of Takoradi.
At times awful, sometimes beautiful
I can't compare Accra's place called Labadi,
But, both lies along the coast
Child-hood weekends at the 'Boat-Asi' beach,
With some folks not to boast.
Yet, we often learn and teach
*Life At Forty*,
I ask for His wisdom and integrity.

Father, let your chap have destiny-helper.
Right-rib-partner, so as to live together
In peace, love and harmony it'll be proper.
Better-half with compassionate heart like a mother.
Let your giftings, skills, talents, abilities and capabilities bring success.
May your goodness pave-way of good-gig on every platform.
Hence, I holdfast your faith to ensure progress.
Regardless of the sickness you lifted me to perform.
*Life At Forty*,
I ask for your divine-maturity to reach eternity.

Four-decades on this planet-earth,
It's your mercy of super-special grace.
In good-health, we'll create wealth,
As I pray and seek your face
With respect to this unique addition of age.
You've made it possible to be alive.
I testify to thank God and all at this stage.
Heart of spirit-songs, I sing to live and survive.
*Life At Forty*,
I ask to eschew poverty but ensure prosperity.
