The Person I Long To Be

The day light breaks again
Another day has begun.

But still no sleep has come.
My body is weary

My mind overworked.
I lie awake thinking

But what I am unsure.
I need to break free from the cycle I endure.

Everyday is the same and the nights are undistinguished.
I feel as though I am being pushed along with the tide

Unable to break free from the everyday flow.
This is not me I need to change, before time takes over

And I am unable to change.
I need to be freed from the grasp of ordinary

And become that person I have always longed for.
Express myself in every way, and conquer the dreams as I lie awake.

Then I may fall asleep and put my mind to rest.
Make changes in my life and help those in need.

I would like to touch everyone's life in a positive way
And leave my mark on society before I fade away.

In the words of one of my favorites rappers, businessmen and entrepreneurs Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter............ I WILL NOT LOOSE!!!!!!!!

Remember Shine In 2009 Or Get Left Behind!!! Smooches!!!

Being the person I want to be is always a challenge. I have fallen and gotten back up. I move 2 steps forward and one back. It's great to see you have that in yourself.
