    It’s hard to make magic when you’re surrounded by tragedy
    But to give and complain well that’s a man made tendency
    Habits are hard to break and easy to make
    And it’s easy to blame the world when you’re scared to create
    And you’re scared to be great
    You’re scared to love and lose so you dequise it with hate
    You’re reclined and relaxed
    Afraid to acknowledge the facts
    So back, back further and let evil determine purpose
    You’re worthless unless you act
    Claim the odds are stacked against you but its faith that lack
    You’re still intact
    With the ability to move
    The ability to win and the dignity to lose
    You are your enemy unless otherwise you choose

    Yes, we can and do tend to get in our own way, afraid to grow, afraid to live. I liked the message and the way you posed it. Welcome to destees, hope to read more from you.
