Take Risks
Live The Life You Want

February 17, 2012


Against The Grain

Too many people to me have implored
Not to travel down the lonely road
They have said their advice I should heed
For I am not likely to succeed
The risks are too difficult to manage
The damage too hard to salvage

My aspirations to them are not wise
For I will fall and never rise
My actions will lead to eternal doom
My tender life never to bloom
But do they consider what I feel
That the calling is living and real

Do I have to travel the path wide
So that we are all on the same side
Does it mean on my own I cannot stand
If I don't yield to their numerous demands

So I choose to ignore what they say
I shall travel through the narrow way
Hoping for the best and armed for the worst
I shall fight any challenging task
With faith, courage and confidence
I aim for nothing less than excellence

I want to prove that it is you yearn
If you believe you can it will be done
And it wont be a bad idea after all
To do that which truly makes you feel whole
