To be afraid we must’ve had something we first must have feared
To triumph we must first have felt defeat
To feel success we must have first dabbled in different pools of failure
To feel acclaimed we must first feel as though we are nothing
To exude talent we must first have had to find our footing in this world
To find ourselves we must first be lost – in the depths of this world
To be joyous, we must know sorrow – to exude life we must first live – to first inspire we must be inspired.
To be talented – one must be truly humble; and to be humble is to know you are talented with limits
To hurt is to know love – a kind that can radiate a soul through actions more than words
To appreciate beauty we must have witnessed anguish and vile
To know ones love we must first know we never had it
And to trust ones self we must know that not everyone in this world is as bad as the last
To truly leave our mark we must first look down on this earth and realize that we are creating our own path
To pursue passion is to once know a dark portion of life where you felt lost and confused
To know accomplishment we must first begin to try
To travel down the road less traveled we oftentimes first know what the traveled one looks like
And to be able to love and let love we must first have had the evil desire to sit on the dock all alone
Don’t be hasty in your endeavors – for prosperity will soon knock on your door
To know hurt we must have once known how to heal
To know great triumph we must have first been defeated
Don’t you go losing yourself in success that you wake up and find yourself in failure.
Go – The Time Is Now.
– Never let them see your fear, and never show them your power –
