I want to be a famous person
Let fame come to me overnight
I don't want to work to hard for it
No need to have a fair fight
Privilege should come to me just because
I was blessed with good genes
Wanting all the resources to be mine
Living way above my means
I want to do the least amount of work
To get the most amount of fame
Getting stopped wherever I go
I want people to know my name
But apparently that won't happen
As now I stay in school
I should be jetting off to Paris
But I sit here like a fool
Apparently I should study more
I could change the world for good
But with the allure of sparkles and gold
Have fame rather, I would
So as I study late one night
Something finally clicks
What if I invented something to change the world
With just a few simple tricks?
I put in all my effort after that
To make something to impact
Everyone around me, and years later
People wonder why they lacked
Now the fame has come to me
Since the day I started to work
I stopped waiting for fame to come
It doesn't come when you lurk
I may not have wanted to do a lot of work
But someone had other plans
I guess I should be proud of what I did
With my own two hands.
Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
- Proverbs 19:21
