Heighten your aspirations,
Get ‘em up where they see the sun,
Float like something lighter than desperation,
Blood soaked to the tarnished beat of your life,
But succeeding despite.
Just get the fuck up and move.
Even the schoolwork,
Even the homework,
You’ve had the harder lessons,
The ones that left the scars,
Now put some time into the paper ones,
The ones that will lift you to the stars.
Frivolous waste of time you once said,
Now absorb and baptize in the act of learning,
Walk onto a campus,
Where you can be something and never look back.
