Only through adversity can GREATNESS be achieved.
"If there's no struggle, there's no progress",
this is what Frederick Douglass believed.
To tap into our inner stength & push forward even
when the odds are against you.
Being a winner, because failure is not a option:
so I'ma make it do what it do!
Make something outta nothing , that's going to
illuminate in my time & beyond me.
Ya'll cant see it now, but then to ya'll can't see
what I see.
My vision, my dreams. nor my aspiration.
My struggles within or my innated motivation.
To be a better person, with concepts of changing
A mirror of inspiration to these little beautiful
black boys & girls.
But, on a larger scale this GREATNESS is really not
Because I can't change, nor can I obtain anything unless
I first start with me...GREATNESS!
