http://images8.alphacoders.com/372/372048.jpgIn the mess that is our own existence,
One simple thing you should keep in mind.
No matter the strength of laziness’ persistence,
If you can’t keep up, you’ll be left behind.

With every move we make towards survival,
Of your own breath always think first
For if you spend time in thine own denial,
From the cup of glory you shall never quench your thirst.

If you will not stand proudly for thyself,
Alone, you shall take the journey,
For your existence in and of itself
Relies on taking a stance for one’s identity.

No one can take your place at the helm
Not even for a moment’s time
If you plan to rule the realm
Take charge, and make the climb.

So oft I hear the question asked:
Why does he have more than me?
Why do I live a beggar’s life
While he swims in luxury.

These questions swim around my world
And yet I keep moving on
I try my best to ignore the noise
And dance off to my own invented song

Thus while they all keep asking
The questions which they ask
I’ll be building my own beauty
And in the sunlight bask.

Rewards aren’t given for the asking.
One must invent them on their own
Hard work, sweat, tears, and dedication
Are the seeds from which success is sown.

While their questions keep them busy,
I sit and plot my victory
And one day looking back at this they claim
It was forever his destiny.

Don’t let them tell you
You cannot do what you want to do,
You will never see it through,
That you shouldn’t dream so vast,
That you  will fail very fast

Dont let them tell you
That you are wrong in your beliefs
That your opinion causes grief
That you should give up while you can
That’s the way to win a fan

You must remember,
You are the one who makes your fate
let the haters spew their hate
While you climb up your own way
To the top, where you will stay.

Their words lose meaning
When they do not support your cause
Don’t let them stop you, do not pause
You must fight for what you dream
Keep on swimming against the stream

With your hard work and dedication,
You’ll be a star onto the nations,
A visionary in the dark
A lonely dreamer with the spark

You’ll rise up to higher things,
Only the victors get to sing
So keep on running to the top,
There’s no reason you should stop.
