If love was not hard
It would not be rewarding
Trophies must be earned
It wouldn't be a prize if anyone could win it
A vision behind closed eyes
Your reflection with no mirror
A world with only peace
Not a soul who wishes terror
A destination in the distance
But a clear path all the way
Your dreams are achievable
There’s nothing more to say
The dream is inside you
You just need to believe
That’s just the first step
Then you go and achieve
Once you score your first goal
You go and bag some more
And never stop achieving
Because it’s a feeling to adore
To make something change must fight
You aren't born a champion
Just have to push towards the light
To the day weakness delayed
Only you have the ability to make change out of the large bills life gives you
The waters that were to drown me,
I walked on them
The fire that were to burn me,
they made me shine better
The stumblingblocks that were to trip me,
they took me higher
The naysayers that were to discourage me,
they motivated the achiever in me
The rough roads that were to weaken me,
they made me stronger
Attempting to stop a winner,
makes them go even farther.
with their guns and their tanks
they marched through like a bad nightmare
the type of hell you can't wake from
destroyed all that you ever loved
killed it, beheaded it, left it bleeding
at night you still wake to their burning faces
your clothes reek of ******
and those eyes haunt you
the smell of their sizzling flesh in your nostrils
soaking your taste buds
the shrapnel penetrates
to the core of your soul
because you'll never forget
the crying faces of the children
the innocent kids whose only crime
was to listen to the 'grown ups'
the intelligent adults who play monopoly
with their bombs and their guns
It's still alive in your head! in their heads!
over a piece of land we pay with their innocent youth
because they witness our deadly game
and lose any concept of childhood
growing up quickly to men and women
we take their lives, memories, loved ones and parents
we won the war? no!
a Victor in a war is the one who has lost less
but never a winner!
there is nothing to be proud of
If you want to see what becomes of optimists just look upon the faces of those people coming out of betting shops and casinos.
A pessimist will tell you that optimism is an addiction that will cost you as much as you are willing to wager and eventually the house will win.
You can only be as optimistic as you are lucky.
I bet you I am right....
