Open your eyes to the reality in your face. Stop moving, take everything at a steady pace. Confused between emotions and what's real Ignoring our mind, not paying attention to the ways we feel Reality vs. real, it's a battle that we never win Never paying attention to the differences between now and then Fighting to remain calm through the ups and downs All the plentiful hours of countless frowns As the earth rotates round and around We have to learn to pick ourselves up when we're down The world and its opportunities waits for no one Keep fighting and pushing till there is no more of the race to run All the things we want in life come with a simple price. Sleeping and creating dreams is nice But a dream is just a dream without the proper care. Taking a dream to a reality is extremely rare. It's determination and will-power that gets it done. The road to success is not paved with fun. Getting up and grinding each and everyday. Working hard, not playing the childish games people play. Follow directions. Pay attention and do you. Don't let anyone tell you what you believe isn't true Success is in your reach; stick your arm out a grab it And always remember that your success is your perfect fit It works for you and only you
