Today I’ll share a story with you
about a boy that never grew
for everybody loved him
except for one…who never had any fun.
The boy that never grew
went through his life giving him the shoo
because nobody liked him
the boy said,” I am way too cool for him.”
As life went on
the boy that never grew
had no more than a shoe,
for he used his shoe
to collect coins from crowds passing through,
and for the boy known as him
lived a life quite opposite of grim
for he was a millionaire
and had no thoughts of despair.
Then on one bright, sunny day
he found himself amongst
the crowds passing through
one after another
ignoring the man with the shoe.
As he approached
he recognized that poor little man,
gave him some coins
and shook his hand,
as he said, ” Thank you for making me who I am.”
We do what we want in life
think about the consequence then make the sacrifice
usually between two things we love
how do we decide whats above
decisions can make you
decisions can break you
they can even hate you
if you do what you love
and love what you do
your decisions will love you
just journey to the end
how many miles, it will depend
sacrifice your life to the greater good
make the better decision
you know you would.
what is life?
why are we here?
I’m always trying to change gear
but it keeps knocking on my door
making me think making my head sore
what do I do?
then I think of something new
the road never ends
but on the tires…it depends
fill up the tank
and run to tomorrow
we have no time for darkness and sorrow
keep a smile as if you couldn’t swallow
the world is a journey filled to the brim
so read between the lines and don’t forget to skim
we all worry about the smallest things
and never notice the blessings life brings
everyone hurries to work not to be late
like its going to change their fate
you may get fired
but why take it so seriously
just have fun
and live life instantaneously.
If you only live once
then why do it with a grunt
live life to the fullest
and make it the ultimate hunt.
is it slowly slipping away
or has it always just been too far away
no matter how high you jump
no matter how hard you work
it just runs away with a smirk
mocking you and teasing you
leaving you with the residue
theres only one thing you can do
keep jumping keep working
make that smirk disappear
catch it out of the air and make it your souvenir
dont give up and dont surrender
its better to go down fighting
rather than go down surviving
would you rather be the hero that died
or the coward who chose just to survive
nothing is ever too far out of reach
just jump higher and higher, and be more than a survivor.
if you had one wish
what would you wish for?
if you had one opportunity
would you score?
if you had one dream
would you soar?
if you only had one more day
what would you say?
if you had a lot of money
would you be the same person or go running?
if you had unlimited time
would you help others or live with crime?
if you could ask one last question
would it help you learn a lesson?
there is no such thing as a stupid question
so let it fly and just maybe it will find a reply.
words turn into writing
and writing turns into layers
many different meanings
they sound like prayers
with so many thoughts going through my head
my brain wants to leave nothing unsaid
phrase after phrase jumping through my ear
so many thoughts these words are sincere
but with the world around me so distracting
it’s so hard to keep this up without practicing
if practice makes perfect
then why is nobody there
perfect is the destination everyone fears
they say it’s impossible
but my mind is theosophical
what does that mean
you wish you knew
just keep thinking there’s nothing you can do
