sometimes we wonder
sometimes we wander
sometimes we stay in one place
often times we worry
often times we scurry
through the days in our current time and space
our hearts do the feeling
our minds do the thinking
our souls doing all and everything in-between
but, who do we follow?
who do we need?
what will we do to succeed?
why do we falter?
why do we second guess?
everything our heart feels…
and the thoughts our mind possess?
what is it that scares us?
what is it that holds us back?
what is it that chokes us so calmly and slow
that we can’t seem to stay on track?
we are like the lone rider
on a trail of our own
no support group to rally
even in our own home
but knowing we don’t need them;
the ones who claim to be but aren’t…
is our key to ultimate growth
fake smiles and fake clapping
they peer over your shoulder
pretending they care
when truly, your suffering is what they thrive on
open all the windows and the let the smoke cascade out
the battle you fight is more than internal
it’s all them without a doubt
be bigger in mind, in spirit and in hope
you have to look beyond
the picture that their words spoke
you are only who you are
not what they make you think
you are only who YOU are
not the Kool aide they made you drink
open your eyes and look closer
they have come between you and your ambition
you are their poster girl with no poster
you are all that they want to be
