Keep Being Honest,

Shanisha

 

I had to stay motivated

Because my mind was racing to the Golden Days

Where my blood line will be born and raised

On the principles of following their dreams and you can do anything you

put your mind to

But listen when i say this journey will not be easy

You’re gonna have some struggles

And your ears will be Bombarded with disgruntle rebuttals

Telling you to settle for a basic 9-5

With no regard to the talents hidden deep inside your mind

But Remember

You can Fly!!

You hear me i said

YOU CAN FLY AND DON’T LET NO BODY ELSE TELL YOU OTHERWISE!!

Because like a Painter and his Canvas or a Mass Comm and her Camera

The possibilities are endless

And in your times of doubt

Close your eyes and listen out for my voice saying these last four words…

You Can Do This
