My character is my concern and not my reputation,
My character is who I am and not imagination.
I cannot plant a seed today and expect a tree tomorrow,
My mind is what evaluates my pleasure from my sorrow.
I will always see the light I know I’m going to make it,
Things never change its people that do I have learned to live and take it.
To the dull mind the world is cloudy,
And life is dark and mild.
To the enlightened mind.
The world grows bright and every day a newborn child.
Experience is not what happens to me it’s what I do with what happens in life.
I am a lit torch of victory; I’m the edge of a sharpened knife,
It’s not enough to have a good mind it’s important to use it well,
So many things I need to say, so many I can’t tell.
And with a rod and prop strong enough
I’ll move the largest mountain.
I’m the still water of a wishing well
Wishing to be a fountain
I am not “I was” or “I will be”
I am not I was or I will Be…I AM
