That Drive (NF)

Thump thump thump

The sound echos throughout the room

It’s almost dark outside

Been here since afternoon

Thump thump swish

Another one made

This is the way this game

Was meant to be played

Thump thump squeak

Footsteps across the floor

Thump thump swish

Three points more

Thump thump…

Silence

Concentration wont break

Visualizes the completion

Then another one she takes

Follows through with the wrist

Then swish

Add one

Tired now

But still not done

Inhale Exhale

You can tell her all is given

By the way she breathes

Sweat rolls down the face

Wipe it off with a sleeve

Can’t let it get in the eyes

Distort the path to the prize

Thump Squeak Swish

She’s so good at this

Not for any other reason

Than that drive and constant…

Practice

 

She really loves this sport…

Not Now

Failure…Defeat…Loss…
The sting burns for some time
Tearing away at the insides
Draining reserves of pride
When tears are on the brink
You should stop a second and think
When we lose…there’s much that we still win

It’s all about the journey
Not so much the destination
Use what you know now as your motivation
Are you forgetting…your hard work and determination?
You became an instant sensation…
Do you know that you’re an inspiration?

Pushing yourself to do things you never thought you could
Making the changes that before you never would
You’re a stronger person now
Can’t you tell?
Well…
Look at how much you’ve grown
Look at how far you’ve come
Gained an experience you’ll never forget…
Do you feel like a winner yet?
And it’s all because you gave it your all
Even the greatest expected to fall
That doesn’t stop them from standing tall

Be a phoenix and rise up from the ashes
Reborn…
Renewed…
Rejuvenated…
Ready to take on the world
Blazing your way back to the top
Keep working to be better
You can’t stop
Not now…
There’s still so much that you could do
You know it too
Can’t let that fire in your eyes go out
Not now…

Get up…stand up…
Stop that smile from becoming a frown
Don’t let this get you down
Not now…
If at first you don’t succeed
Try harder next time
Climb climb climb
The top is within reach
Don’t lose sight of your goals
Don’t give up on your dreams
Not when you’re this close
Not now…
Not now

Fireproof

Relationships are not fireproof
Sometimes we end up getting burned
We need to be able to walk out the fire
With a few new lessons learned
Fires can be things that are severe
Saying things that in the ears constantly chime
Some fires are mild and easily pass by
For example not spending enough time

Fireproof doesn’t mean fires will never come
Just that you are able to withstand
You should always be ready for anything
Things do not always go as planned
Love does not make relationships
It should be the other way around
Many times relationships are ended
Just because love is not quickly found

There are parasites that attack relationships
See the love and try to take it away
If you are not careful and protect yourself
You offer to them an open buffet
Be slow to anger and quicker to listen
This will give you much success
Take a second to see the other side
So the whole situation can be assessed

The eyes will always wander away
Try to stop them as hard as you can
But as much attention as you pay to the eyes
Pay even more attention to your hands
One of the double edges swords in life
Can come in the form of friend’s advice
At times it will help you out
Other times you pay a price

Love is not an easy thing to keep
It takes alot of time and determination
Love is not a house you stay in
From it there is no vacation
When you are in a relationship
Alot of energy is required
You never leave your partner behind
Especially in a fire

Don’t worry about the wounds
If you believe enough you wont lose
At times it may be hard to do
But if you find someone you adore
You’ll find out that love is not at all a fight
It’s something worth fighting for
