Father’s child

I am my Father’s child/

Whether I am tame or wild/

Whether I am strong or mild/

I am my Father’s child and He goes the extra mile//

He picked me from the sea of billions of faces and said “you”/

No matter how fast or slow your pace is- “you”/

No matter the back and forth, your pacing-“you”/

Regardless of your status, your payslip-“you”/

I choose you for salvation/

Rise up!

Jemima Sumgong
Kenya’s Jemima Sumgong crosses the line to win the Elite Women’s Race during the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon.

Jemima Sumgong.

That is one name that I will remember for many days to come. In case you are not Kenyan or have not heard about her, she was the 2016 London Women’s marathon winner. The win was and still is so phenomenal because she won despite having suffered a bad fall that left her head bleeding and a near altercation with an onlooker who ran onto the track after she had fallen.
