    At times, it can be hard to grasp
    All that has happened in your past
    In thirty plus years you‘ve been on this earth

    Now, at this point you feel
    That you have yet to reveal
    The magnitude of you’ re worth

    You've pondered and contemplated
    On all of the time you’ve wasted
    When you think of it too hard it hurts

    So, you can't look back anymore
    Just forward to what's in store
    All of the marvels to be unearthed

    Now, upon you path to that high
    Life is going to try and try
    Discouraging you from being first

    Some hurtful things will be blatant
    Some people they will try your patients
    And sometimes the timing will be the worst

    Hoping, right along the same line
    Some moments will be right on time…
    And everything will correspond and work

    When such moments come around
    Let them besiege and surround
    Never be scared to mingle and flirt

    Keeping your head on the right way
    While working hard on the entrees
    Even as you enjoy, not indulge, in the desserts

    Making all see and believe
    Your desire to succeed
    With the gifts you’ve been blessed with from birth

    Pay absolutely no mind
    To B. S. stories and the lies
    From all of the A-holes and/or jerks

    Keep fortifying your skin
    For the thorns you may fall in
    Becoming clever… Becoming diverse

    You can be all you want to be
    You will fulfill all of your dreams
    Quench the longings, the yearnings, the thirsts

    Because this day is truly going to come
    You will in fact make it to number one
    And you will finally take your place at first

    This was such a positive drop. Got to keep your eye on the prize, and be ready when opportunity knocks, cause you never know when, or how, it will knock. I enjoyed this piece.
