But Kate was my mate; My story in rhymes

In those days when we used to carry our SLATES and be LATE to school because we would go after EIGHT(8am). I would carry the CATE prepared by my mother for my afternoon SATEKate was my MATE.

Twenty years later

I met KATE (now a big woman married to a bank manager), not on a DATE. We talked and she said that even FAITH works at the bank "ZENITH". She ordered two PLATES which she paid after We ATE.  I felt like a BATE, I got home, slammed the GATE, and rushed inside like a NATE. I muttered; what is my FATE? I felt like the figure EIGHT (zero upon zero). No tangible work that silences those that HATE,  single like a singlet and broke like a church rat. I was like a PATE with no RATE. Failure was my STATE. Should I change my TATE? I murmured. Maybe I needed a SKATE to the top? I was like a crystal of URATE that stinks in gout. Should I LATHE my CURATE for prayers? I thought. Maybe I was like a BRAIT waiting to be purified. which SENATE have met on my matter?  Kai!!🤔

In the deep of my silent thoughts while the waves of questions unanswered overwhelmed my soul, then I remembered. JAY whom we used to eat from the same PLATE  is now LATE(dead). KANE, a very bright student in my high school days was a BAIT in a drug deal,  he is lying lifeless in the mortuary where he is on the WAIT for his final BATHE. JANE is now an INMATE in the JAIL awaiting her final FATE 

As I left the bedroom for the living room, I saw the PORTRAIT of the man(My father) who once told me that there is a place for waiting in life's journey.  I went STRAIGHT on my kneels and thereafter, PROSTRATE and I prayed " Lord, I will WAIT". "Even I was in a HASTE, yet I would WAIT" I cried. I gathered myself together, and I said that I would continue the teaching job I was into and pursue my vision as I follow Christ.

The testimony.

He that trusts in the lord will never make HASTE and he will not WASTE away. I never knew what the future was for me until I had a TASTE With a SPATE . I got a federal government scholarship for my master's in the STATE(USA).  I am married and doing GREAT. Now I know that KATE *WAS* my MATE.

The conclusion of the matter is that 

He/she was your classmate

He/she was your coursemate

He/she cannot be your destiny mate

Don't run beyond your shadow and dabble into what is ungodly. Rather, wait for The time of His lifting and focus on the little you have in your hands as you aspire for more. Don't be contented with little but have the eyes of an eagle 🦅. Your time is coming and will come like daily times(newspaper).

Just thinking out loud.  Before you leave this page, just see these

Isaiah 28 vs 16: therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: ‘Whoever believes will not be in haste

Isaiah 40 vs 31:But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Habakkuk 2 vs 3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
