I raise my standards up to learn from the mistakes I’ve made.
Even though I’m staying confident with not knowing what about myself that I can change.
Sometimes I laugh at the future while staying positive.
Progression is my defense so nothing is gonna stop me.
Questions embark my mind like ‘how can I stay honest?’
Lies try to tear down my pathway to success.
The lies be sayin ____”put your name here”____you can’t follow your dreams because you’re a mess.”
I tell myself that my mess is only temporary.
My new beginning will not tarry.
So I don’t have to worry….about what I haven’t done yet.
All I know is Ima execute my next move until I reach my best.
Right now I’m too busy tryna pass this next test.
I pray God got me, especially when I’m a hot mess.
I am continually working on me while my mind is at ease.
I imagine me……becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be.
I have the right to say, ‘I embrace today’ despite the unknowns of what life has to offer tomorrow.
If you talk to me about the future I’ll tell you that, I’m blessed.
