Here you are again.
Depressed, and punctured by pain,
Telling yourself it’s the end;
You’ll come to an end.
Knowing that you can stand
And fly again
Be like wind
Quiet and unnoticed on Sunday
Though it carries rapid blessings like Mayday
Smooth, calming and delightful on Monday
But knows when to exercise its strength
Seek its desires on Wednesday
On top of mountains or in oceans of May
Be like wind
Finishes chores by the snooze of Friday
As new adventures wait on the Sun’s day
I’m me, who are you?
Do you skate, do you dance?
Do you look at a person’s mind like taking a glance?
Do you find yourself on the half court and still take a chance?
Do restrictions hold you back? Do you climb the fence?
First day, we hope for an easy pass. We’ve been hoping ever since
We get caught and bs-on-the-spot. Ain’t got time to plan in advance
You don’t walk into class and hustle
You don’t say something in Latin as if you were fighting evil
Do you argue in seminar like you’re in a battle?
Or declaim and take everyone to another level?
Do you wear a tie knowing you came from the ghetto?
Do you get hungry in class and eat cereal?
You don’t know.
We wake up expecting struggle
But walk down graham and smile when others say hello
We think it’s bad…badder than the devil
But this is TBLS so, are you going to lose or win this war like a pro?
Think of a child with a Lego set or some building blocks. What do you see? The child will try to put the pieces together and bring whatever they have in their imagination to life. Not letting our ideas remain ideas, is the morality in this quote.
You have to find the strength and courage to not let your thoughts remain thoughts. Ideas rule the world but if we only go as far as having ideas, there would be no progress in society. Stop letting whatever it is keep you from achieving your ideas, dreams and the things dwelling in your imagination. You can’t let your fears prevent you from pursuing your goals. Tell fear to go sit somewhere and leave you alone. Do not let anyone tell you that you’re thinking too big because it is only the people who think they can make a great impact on the world who actually do.
No idea is too big, too small, too smart or too dumb. An idea is an idea. When you realize the thoughts you have hold the potential to make a great change, whether in someone’s life or the world, making a difference (even in your own life) is right around the corner.
Please, tell someone, tell yourself to do the world a favor and not restrain these amazing thoughts from becoming something more than a thought. If a thought is not forgotten, it will surely go to the grave with you but, once you express it and do something with it…that something might live on forever.
If you have an idea, chase after it!
Everyone: yourself and the people you consider a friend, have an immense level of potential to do a lot of things. You have to realize that the best you give today can be the worst you give tomorrow; “May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.” – Jay-Z.
Each one of us is a flower: ready to bloom with every might as soon as spring comes by. So, quit telling yourself you cannot do something or something was not made for you, though you want it. You know that is a lie. You have to believe in yourself, believe you can achieve greatness and if your time to achieve greatness hasn’t come yet, prepare for when it arrives.
“What if I don’t want to wait?” Well, some plants also grow in other seasons. Try to achieve your greatness now. Patience is good but, if you know you can achieve something right now, what are you waiting for? Let now be your spring and let yourself grow and bloom into more beauty.
Tell that to a friend as a reminder or to someone who is losing faith in themself. Let them know that, they are at their worst but their time will come. So keep your head up and soldier on!
The journey is tough, I know, but an arrow has to be pulled backwards before it plunges forward.
