I’m at the point in life where I have the ability to live out my dreams. And I’m aware that this phrase is so cliche but its true. I’m 17 and the world is at my feet. I remember being 6 or 7 thinking to myself that getting to where I am now is gonna be perfect. I thought that driving a car and hanging out at parties, and swearing was the pinnacle of life, now I see that I got kinda tricked into believing that I had to settle. Until recently a person that you could say I look up to showed me that God doesn’t have limits, so if I put my trust in Him, why would I have limits. So everyday from now on, I blowing up all my old, limited dreams up and trading them in for HUGE ones. Everyday I want to expand and make these dreams of mine bigger.
I wrote this because with all this college prep I feel the need to do, I’m thinking about purpose. Wheter you believe everything happens for a reason or not, you can’t deny the fact that we all feel the need to belong to something. Enjoy.
Someone who isn’t here is who I’m in debt to Grandad probably looking down now, know I’ll never forget you Put a future on the shelf for me I wish you could see me now Doing only half the things my mother would allow And I’m living like I’m lost, do I even wanna be found I used to enjoy being the one that young women surroundh Only a few were worth the effort but they were all quite down I’ve mastered conversation Yet I never really know how my words sound I was never timid with my emotions Someone tell me why I’m so comfortable being open? And while you at it, tell me why I’m a romantic that’s hopeless I feel like we happened just yesterday, my memories are so potent I’m confused on what to call myself I guess for now you can call me chosen
Chosen for what, I’m not quite sure So I’m doing things my compeers haven’t before Progression is a routine, I deserve no awards Growing from my vantage is the perfect reward Being different is something I choose not to ignore I write every verse like it’s 4th quarter with a tied score And instead filling them with lies and lore I use a pen to show you Simba at his very core
My junior year of high school starts tomorrow. My summer has come and gone, and I’m sitting, wondering what the next 9 months has in store for me. I plan to become one of the hardest workers I know this school year. Not just academically but spiritually, athletically, and in my relations with other people. This school year, I want to begin to set bars for myself that no one expects me to reach. I want to become the leader I know I can be. No more wasting potential. No more selling myself short. There’s no time like right now. That is one of my slogans for this school year, because there will never ever be another day, hour, or minute like the one I just lived through. Dear Junior Year, expect the unexpected.
This is a verse I wrote today. Feel like it’s exactly what my spirit is driving me towards.
Sometimes you don’t get what you want But you always get what you deserve If I had to sum up life in 5 words I’d say: You live and you learn Good things are never given, they only come earned So if you keep grinding, them tables will turn You can fly high now, but you’ll soon crash and burn Soon you’ll begin to yearn For the deeper things, the realer things The picket fence, The wedding ring The two kids, Not summer flings I’m speaking truth get out the kitchen if you can’t take the flame I refuse to apologize for having a higher aim They mad cause I don’t study the broads But I’m tryna get my bachelors and study abroad And after that my masters I refuse to let my desires today to become my master My dreams are what I’m chasing after
I’m a person that has trouble understanding jealousy. I hear people say all the time: “I wish I was _____” or “I want what _____ has”. I was always a person who felt that what I wanted was always within reach, maybe that’s just an overconfident way to look at it. But we live in a day and age where the people who have much are glorified and those that don’t are almost forced to look up to those we do through the media and other outlets. The reality of it is, everyone that you and I look up to or are “jealous” of has someone they are “jealous” of. So in reality if we all look up to someone, why ever be jealous? If you want something in life, its attainable. We live in an era where ALL things are available to ALL people. You don’t have to be jealous, because you can have anything you want.

I hear people say all the time: “I’m sick of people being fake”. Well what exactly does fake consist of? Most people say that when someone upsets them, but honestly people who dont learn to adapt to their surroundings are labeled as “ignorant”. We have to understand that the way you act around your significant other’s parents, isn’t the way you act when around your friends pool party. You might say I’m “fake” but I’m just being realistic. No person is successful in life by having the same attitude and acting the same regardless of circumstances.
