Went right by your face but you spaced. Down the road it goes. What did you see? Did you learn, no, that's not what you yearned for. The lesson now, will come later leaving a burn. Keeping your eyes open cures the sweeping motion that life can bare on one not ready. Paying attention can ease the tension of going through life. Don't just stay alive. Pay attention and thrive.
"It’s not what you look at, but what you see.” -Henry David Thoreau
It's burning a hole in your pocket. But you won't pull it out and stock it away. Lack of self control won't concede as you spend frivolously. Seemingly, you get to a point that your impulses have created repulsive actions leaving you with no traction. Heaving you down a road of uncertainty, The only relief is your next check. And once again, you lose control and wreck.
"It's not extra money. It's your futures money."
You wake up and twiddle with this, messed with that. Time goes by and you don't notice. Priorities out of focus. Think times on your side but it's not. It doesn't care bout the goals you got. Be aware of how you use your time. It doesn't wait, care, or whither. It just tics, tocs, tics some more, ticking away. What are you doing with your day.
"You don't have all day, but rather, the rest of it."
It's been painted on the wall. Tainted vision building, Yielding your responsibility to your future, hoping for it to mature. If only you were paying attention. If you'd stop and mention to yourself, this is important. Courting your future wouldn't be so tough. Remembering where you've been is important to knowing where to go.
"You can't see where you are going if you haven't been paying attention to where you've been."
They're not listening, so you whip 'em. Forbid they learn from conversing, teaching, a good example. Instead, driving fear into them, spanking. A dishonest person in the making. Scared of what the truth bares on them, the beatings. Their words become false in hopes of escaping the wrath of the truth. Creating a dishonest personality. That only looks for their next move.
"Refusing to spank creates trust. 'Cause they're not afraid of being beaten. This, in turn, builds an honest character."
You want to escape reality, letting your mind fall into the abyss. You won't see what you miss. Blocking yourself from the situation at hand makes it hard to understand where you're needed. They yearn for you so you concede and start to believe but then there's reality. You can escape and become static forsaking your future or you could be the suture of your reality. Succeeding creates an understanding that reality is too, a good escape.
"Find happiness in success, not refuge."
It's not always gonna be alright. Even when your dreams slip out of sight, continue to fight. Renew your confidence daily, see through each coincidence, learning from it. Rise above your doubts 'cause every second counts. Don't rush, time won't crush under pressure. Let it play out, you'll find the treasure. And if you you're not pleased with where you are today. There's always Tomorrow, you just gotta believe.
"It will be ok in the end. If it's not alright, then its not the end."
It is a goal you set but the road is a test. Even if you do your best the pin of victory might not rest on your chest. making some quiet. Only in their head now will they riot. On the other hand it could be you that continues to stand, marching on. Not knowing the road ahead but still won't stop. You have drive that keeps your hopes alive, digging, crawling, holding on when its crippling, knocking you around but not down. When others make excuses, you don't make a sound. You know tomorrow's a new day. A new chance to make your dreams a reality.
"You can determine the value of your burdens but real courage is moving forward when the outcome is uncertain."
