Be alive. Stay aware

Have a realistic moment, outside of your dreams

Be honest with yourself, can you do these things?

All you can do is believe, if you stay inside your dream.

So wake up, and live up to your expectations

I know what I can and can’t do

I know I’ll face challenges, some old and some new

Know that everything is okay, nothing will ever be perfect someday

Your world and community change everyday

Its a game we sit down and play

Dont hide in your  house, dont hide in your head

Know who you are

Know whos around you

Surround yourself with power

Know how the world works, and if you dont then figure it out
