Think Smarter

2023, Henery X ©

Constant self verbal clashes, Leave me risin’ from the ashes, Better than ever, Bow down to who? Never, Blazin’ the trail, Where winners never fail, Suckaz can’t see me but they feel me like Braille, I see ’em takin’ notes, I hear ’em quotin’ my quotes, But they discover that recitin’ somethin’ I wrote, And not out of admiration but to get votes, Quickly cuts the cords in their throats, Now they afraid to speak, And their fear leave ’em in search of a new means to eat, Imagine dyin’ of starvation, And due to the lack of havin’ an original imagination, Building a brand with bits and pieces of other people’s conversations, That’s a damn shame, Can’t even picture one masterpiece in your mind frame, My advice? Think smarter, Work harder, So you can come off the bench and become a full-time starter, Ballin’ outta control, And you still possess your soul, Makin’ self-proclaimed competition fold the hands they hold, This is the result when you produce literary gold.

Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had were with myself. I’d ask the tough questions and give the honest answers. During these exchanges, I discovered that not only was my thinking more of the problem, but that it was also the solution to the problem as well.

If we desire to change our lives, it must begin with our thinking. Open our minds and realize our way isn’t the only way.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.

Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
