Take the Ride

201 18 8

Close your eyes
Take a deep breath
Now, envision your dream
It's you
Can you see yourself
You're glowing
You're excited
You're right where
you want to be

You're happy
You're comfortable
Doing what
You love to do
Stay positive
Stay focused
Don't let anyone
Discourage you

The truth is
A few people
Don't want you
To succeed
They're jealous
They're jaded
If you let them
They'll happily
Stand in your way.

This time
I'm afraid
There aren't
Short cuts
Or free rides
So you'll have
To dig deep
You'll have to
Pay the full price

The road
Will be winding
There will be detours
And roadblocks
Of all kinds
But if you keep
Driving yourself
And keep empowering
Your mind
You'll have plenty
Of gas in your tank
To get there
In due time

Nobody will take you
You must find
Your own way
If you want it
You can have it
The only
Obstacle here
Is to convince
You deserve it
And this is your fate

That sparkle
That came
To your eyes
When you pictured
Your life
In the place
You want to be
Let that vision
Dance freely
As it sparks
A raging fire
Of desire
Your only enemy
Is you
You have to believe.

Hold onto
To that feeling
Let the electricity
Pulse through
Your veins
Can stop you
If you
Don't let it
Once you've
Your fate

Your dream
It's begging you to
"Buy the ticket,
Take the ride..."
Now, take a deep breath
You're ready
Now, open your eyes
