    Ordinary Man




    Here’s a man, an ordinary man
    No special powers, no extra hands
    Only a brain, a heart, an a plan
    At least that’s what I was brought to understand
    Until I met this man
    This extraordinary man
    Many special blessings
    More than most could stand
    A heart of gold
    Which made him a King
    The intellect of a scientist
    Capable of anything
    Anything he put his mind to
    His heart was sure to follow
    A dream of becoming great
    A Malcolm, Martin, or Aristotle
    No limitations
    When he starts to invision
    Himself accomplishing anything was an easy transition
    Perseverance and persistence
    Was rooted in his heart
    No matter how long the trek
    He was willing to start
    Just like most
    He often would fail
    But with a desire so strong
    He new he’d prevail
    So this ordinary man
    Was not as he seemed
    He possessed the impeccable will
    To follow his Dreams!

    wow
    iF YOU STARTED OFF THIS WAY.....
    You gonna end up greater than you are!!!!!!!!

    I like this one.
    The ordinary man has extra ordinary thoughts
    All great men started off ordinary....superficially anyway.
    Then the extraordinary thing placed inside of them
    Breathed and then.....
    The rest is history!!!!!!

    OFF THE CHAIN

    PEACE AND LOVE
