    Got the ball,
    now I'm gonna go for it all.
    Can't slow down,
    can't look back.
    Can't believe that for me to learn my lesson,
    it took something like that.
    But never again.
    I got my eyes on the prize,
    the finish line..
    the end zone.
    In order to succeed I must visualize the spinach is mine,
    that's all I can stand, I can't stand no more.
    Can't let my new ways be old habits.
    I can have it all if I grasp it.
    Just go for it all.
    Hurdles?
    No problem, I got a trophy running hurdles.
    When I ran those I lost the nickname of "turtle".
    And Dre received it.
    Ironic.
    What's that?
    Obstacles?
    There is no obstacle that's earthly possible of deterring me.
    I'll hop the bar, scale the ledge,
    even walk the makeshift bridge.
    You gotta do what you gotta 2 get 2 where you're going.
    I've got ancestors who withstood downfalls & setbacks
    just to live long, healthy lives full of happiness.
    Because they learned their lessons young.
    I'm still young enough to catch the ball and
    RUN!!!
    I see my rivals to my left and right,
    and I'm at the 50 yard line.
    If I pace it just right...
    It'll only be a matter of time.

    Say On!

    "For the race is not given to the fastest or the swiftest but he that endureth to the end." Somebody in the Bible said that and you know it has got to be true...And I concur! Wonderful subject matter and very positive and affirming message.
    Blessings on Ya House!

    If I only touch one mind, my soul will be satisfied.

    Sisters, thank you for the words of kindness..

    It's good to know that I have reached out to more minds than I could by speaking...

    That's what's so cool about this site, hmm?
