I Dare You to Move

You stood alone but there was no way around you

You stood so tall and so proud I could not see through you

You hid behind your charms and lies and made me think I could notĀ readĀ you

But I finally understand what it takes to be you I admire you for being you for so long

Come to think of it, I do not think you have any other side to you

You now stand representing boredom and all that I know

You now stand being everything so predictable to meĀ 

Hey that spark is still in your eyes – oh yes, it is still there!

But it does not ignite a flame in me anymore

You stand in the way but now I can see so many ways around you

You still stand tall and proud

But now I see right through you

Your charms and your lies are now my cards in the gameĀ also

It is so now so easy to get in your head and play your very games

So consider my next words carefully…

Before that spark in your eyes fade

And what is left of the dying embers in my heart die out…

I dare you to move!

Ain’t What Happened… T’was how you Responded!

ImageItā€™s not what happens to us, but our response to what happens to us that hurts us. Of course, things can hurt us physically or economically and cause sorrow. But our character, our basic identity, does not have to be hurt at all. In fact, our most difficult experiences become the crucibles that forge our character and develop the internal powers, the freedom to handle difficult circumstances in the future and to inspire others to do so as well.
