Silent Change

Poem By Victor Pratt

Inevitable change, surely expected, a mirror of
life’s shifting desires before birth, in youth, in
Maturity, in twilight unto eternity;

For what is change but purpose in rhythm with
life, inseparable; as time goes in oneness with tide,
unstoppable
as a new dawn, new hopes,
new era.

Like fleeting wave it beckons even from afar,
evokes imagination, drives innovation in
boundless value creation, value exchange, value
addition to greater good;

Breaking new grounds, charting frontiers in milestones as Nelson
Mandela’s long walk to freedom, Mohamed
Yunus’ banking the unbanked, Safaricom's
M-pesa in mobile service to masses;

Blazing platforms
in candid exchange unmasking truths
unspoken, commonalities abound, possibilities
unlimited, partnerships for change in motion,
inequalities on the mend.

In silent embrace it lingers, nurtures dreams,
clears pathways; for in men, women, even
children dwell precious life, talent, passion,
wisdom;

Ah, the promise of open one world.
