Taking the moments to appreciate how far I came, understanding I’m nowhere where I want to be,
Everyday I wake up and appreciate another moment to get up and get it done
But I am,
Right where I need to be. Breathing steadily as I meditate and prepare for another day
to make my name ring in the ears of all those that don’t pay
I love the journey I’m taking on this long road to my dreams
Understanding hat I am not the amalgamation of what others think of me and taking every experience as a blessing
as I unlearn toxic behaviors and build upon the healthy ones I’ve adopted,
Relinquishing the deception my mind has presented and implementing the inception
deep within my psyche that I deserve everything I’m working for, and everything I have now,
One day, I’ll sit in reflection of the moments I have now reminiscing on the times I didn’t have what I was praying for.
And I’ll smile, thanking myself for believing in the the entirety of the human being I am.
And to those that didn’t envision my dream, will look at me in disbelief as I,
like a distant star glisten in the darkness while they watch from their telescopes in awe,
And when they try to reach out, like that star, I’ll already be gone
