You want an A on that final

You want to pass all your classes

I want to help

I really do

But you’re the one who has to find that desire to succeed from within

 

You want nice friends

You want everyone to like you

So do I

I really do

But not everyone sees the world the way like you do

 

You want to spread peace

You want the world to love instead of hate

That would be nice

No war, no arguments

But everyone is greedy little mice

 

You want to succeed in drill

You want to beast in games

You want this, and that

To talk, to listen, to help

 

We all want to be winners don’t we?

Standing on top of the heap

Holding the city’s treasured key

Impossible is easy to leap

Serenity is simple to keep

 

Darkness is still there to seep

Our own little self doubt

Our own ying to yang

Our worry is what its all about

 

I can see you feel dead inside

Desperate, confused, and beaten

I want to help

I really do

But I feel that way too

 

You’re an awesome person

Always ready to laugh

I was trying to say

That’s what I like about you

 

But you push help aside

You don’t drink the water that I lead you to

You forge your own path

Better to be the change in the world

Than to let it change you

 

But I remind you its not smoothened out

It is dangerous, and difficult, and dirty

I know you can do it

You’ve always dreamed of thrill

A place to use your will

 

Don’t swim halfway

Then return okay

Keep going on

 

In chess you’re the pawn

People fail to see your true beauty

Or the vital role you play

You don’t like being called a cutie

Or doing what I say

But trust me now

Don’t ask me how

You will one day WOW

 

Relax

Take a sip of tea

Have patience, I plea

 

Don’t fret

Don’t freak

You will find the treasure that you seek

 

It is not beautifully laced

Or easily seen

Unless your eyes are awfully keen

 

It cannot be sold

Your hands cannot hold

But it is priceless and worth more than gold

 

Live and breathe

You gain it everyday

Sometimes slow

Against every no

It comes in your own way

 

Experience
