If you’re sticking to your guns, make sure you’re not shooting blanks. 😉
I grew up in a household where judging was normal. I was constantly judged too. It made my confidence struggle and it still does sometimes. It made me become someone who doesn’t judge. No one is perfect… Including me. This young man wrote what I’ve tried to write for years. He is extremely talented!
I bet you sleep
On a bed
Of fifty pound notes
Of all the experiences
Your money hasn’t bought you yet
Like falling in love
At the sight of someone
Seeing a full moon
After a hard day’s work
Being able to talk to someone
Who isn’t presenting
Their best self to you
Rather being normal
And while you sit there now
On your throne
I wonder if
Before your reality sleeps
Where your augmented thoughts
Belie your bourgeois affronts
You look in the mirror
And feel pangs of disappointment
And your soul
Slowly slipping away
Like melted wax
Swallowing a flame
I listen to this everyday. It’s always playing in my head.
It is inspiring and it gives me courage. Truly, one of my favorite videos.
When I first found this video it had 4,000 views. The video has close to 17,000,000 views now.
My boys listen to me chant the words..
They respond loudly…. I AM A CHAMPION!
The words benefit me more than my boys. However, it brings peace knowing they know the creed too.
It’s very fitting for the battle of life.
When my boys are near I use these words…
Boys, I’ve been honored to mother you
