Put ‘Em Up

blox (2)

What do we long for? Is it written in stone? Is it unattainable? It was once there. We obsess over its nature, it’s power and prowess. Can we return? Why sure, why not. However, what is it that stops us? Try something different? Go another route? I am tired of being tired and overrun by stopping. It’s time to pick up the gloves and pound out smashing. Use vigour. Use life. Use everything in your soul to carry you toward the light.

That is so cheesy but true. A poem, or more like a manifesto for the one single thing that drives me to be a better person. Inside and out. Answer the questions in the poem above for your own good. What is it you’re struggling with and why? Can you overcome and how? Together, we can find the answers, one step at a time!

Exercise.

It matters. Shout it from the rooftop. Be dedicated. Be proud. Take that extra step, in your own time, to show them what you’re worth. Your excitement is often abated, and they most likely won’t bat an eye. But if you keep showing them, one day they will recognize. Your truth. Your ability. Your strength. Repeat it with me. Your truth. Your ability. Your strength.

I’m too obsessive.

I don’t know what I want.

I do, but I’m working toward it?

Damnit, this is difficult for me.

I can just go to sleep, but wake up mended.

Not defeated. You are healed in the morning.

You can do it, walk with me, hold my hand if you need to.

I will go where you need me to be.

I’m writing something important here.

So listen and be clear.

Top three things that make you tick:

What are they?
