I strive to do better. I work to be better.
Get what I want, and remain a go-getter.
I’ll never stop struggling, despite what you say.
Yes, I fight a new battle with each breaking day.
I know hatred, anger, depression, disgust
I know jealousy, sloth, grief, and mistrust
I know how self-pity can torment your mind
You impair your own senses, you choose to be blind
I’ve seen the lowest of the low; I’ve been there too
In fact, I’m there often, but I try to renew
My vision, perspective and all in between.
I create my own future, I plan shape and scheme
I choose to persevere, though the journey is long
And I ignore those who think that I do not belong
Learned how to reject poison of my own demise
I can avoid my own enemies in my crafted disguise
I push myself even with no ending in sight
I charge onward and upward, and yes, into the night
I rarely stop for a breath, I don’t stop to regret
Just get out of my way. Yall seen nothin’ yet.
