True Definition Of Self

29 November 2012, 14:37

In my two decades of existence I was never really able to define what DEFINITION OF SELF truly meant let alone the TRUE DEFINITION OF SELF .In a world where we’re forced to accept mediocrity and forced to believe that your least is somehow your best. I’ve grown to understand that I have greater purpose in life, than being worried about where my next “zol” would come from, or even worry about which “chick” I would “gibela” next. I’ve rather become more worried about being one of the few in my family to ever get a diploma or even be the only one with a degree. I’ve become more worried about the “kasi” kid who can’t read, let alone one who might never get the chance to see or read this. I’ve become worried about how many people’s lives I touch during my cause on this earth. Most importantly I’ve become more worried about the little things that people always sweep under the carpet in the name of just “simply following protocol”.

I was told that since my dad was “nothing” that I too would follow in his footsteps and make the same mistakes that he made and even make the same decisions as him. I was once labelled as a “Lost Cause” an “Outcast” or even as “Like father like son”. Bare in mind that from the above text, there’s no mention on how I as Nkosana Prince Mokoena view or even define myself; Well allow me to define ME.

I’m Nkosana Prince Mokoena and I basically want to be to the world what Dr Nelson Mandela was, I want to be what Wole Soyinka was to literature, I want to be what Patrice Motsepe was and continue to be to the South African economy and above all I want to be what Steve Biko, Malcolm X, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe and Martin Luther King were to the human race.

I’m a world changer, an activist and an analytical thinker. I’m a boyfriend, brother; son and friend but most importantly I represent the TRUE DEFINITION OF SELF.

 HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOURSELF????
