Take it to yourself

 Take it to yourself, 
upkeep on everybodies health. 
Deserve the true meaning of wealth,
for when ambition starts linking evolution, 
exploding into glorious fruition. 
Leaving the weak behind to wallow 
in stinking pollution.
    No negotiaion to make known, 
just follow through to reach an 
establishment on your own.
Decipher which opportunities, 
correspond with all your immunities,
from the center point to the 
outskirts of all communities.

Pick and choose your battles, 
hear no cries. 
Make the choice, 
it best be wise. 
Because truth is shown, 
through ones eyes.
Put twice that amount, 
in your faith, 
for thee who created the very skies.

   You were formed into being for a reason. 
So forth that reason being beyond 
a schemed out plot, 
fishing for a doubted act of worth in treason.
Come to find out, 
it only lasts for just one season.
  I must insist, 
that in God; We trust, we confide,
 we don't resist.
A concept to fooled by implications, 
for the means to exist. 

Communication being imparritive, 
for any sort of propositon. 
From leaving a good first impression, 
maintaining a special connection, and
always being informed of your progression. 
That's only if you, survive the next session! 
 In debate to relate your views, 
 showing which direction. 
Opening up minds, 
to a new section. 
Not the one, 
currently undergoing a recession.

Be hardcore,
fear no more. 
For the record, keep the score, 
and when judgment calls, 
hear him roar. 
Is it in rage?, 
In vain?, 
Will you the will, 
to spare to the rich
      and still, 
care for the poor.
But don't forget to check your pride at the door?
Choice is yours, once again I..ask?.
After you take off your mask, 
push for the facts, to the max hard core. Relax. Yo, 
 Take it to yourself, What did He make YOU for?
