Tour de force

Life will throw you out of your comfort zone To appraise your worthiness Bear it! Confiscate your treasure to test your patience Suffer it! Send flowers your way you can't bask To examine your ego Ignore it! Bury your voice and fill your eyes with sorrow To remind you that freedom is power! Fight for it! You'll be left to wander with logic in disguise and ignorance being nice Find your true self! The passing hour shorter than the repetition of heartbeats that depart your pectus Make use of it! Your cup fill with emptiness While smiles escape leaving your pain unhealed Learn from it! Never make excuses, you owe failure tale to no man Remember it!
