Who said life’s going to be tough?
But why do you expect it to be a cake walk?
Nothing is hard, when there’s a genuine will.
Let the world be,
Be who you shall be.
Why memorize the words of others,
Make your own dictionary.
Why do you have to chase those worries,
Peace open armed stands by your side.
Why do you believe what is false,
Then hearing my truth?
I know life is not easy, not appealing, not always the way you desire,
but that’s the thrill.
Remember, to DO it. Face the fear,
laugh at it as it crumbles to nothing.
Do what no one thought,
let those who underestimated you,
gaze at you in awe.
Maturing needn’t be pleasant, nor as smooth as you thought,
But know that it’s not as rough as we fear.
You worked, so keep going,
don’t let these mischievous demons
let in nor soil your potential.
Kick ‘em off, you have a life uncharted,
Write it on your own, with your own hands.
For your own path.
