Damn straight

Believe in your gut;
you have it for a reason.
Are things so goddamn good that they’re
worth selling out your heart and soul?
It is all a lie, and you deserve better.

You have the Choice

To struggle ‘gainst the world,
Be yourself despite the strain;
To follow your own essence, true to your own name –
not hiding in the darkness transferring the blame.
Be alive – raise your Voice!

Surviving

I focus on each hour
to make it through the day
until I have the power
to live in my own way.

– requested by a certain someone.  You know who you are, ^_^

House party

Let loose and let ‘er rip!
This is the only chance we get –
grab life by the horns and enjoy the trip.

Sing, dance, and shake your hip;
happiness is a just mindset.
Let loose and let ‘er rip!

Head on out and hit the strip
for a couple of beers and a cigarette.
Grab life by the horns and enjoy the trip.

Mosey on down and take a dip;
don’t be afraid to get your feet wet.
Let loose and let ‘er rip!

Enjoy the taste of the lip
of that certain someone you just met.
Grab life by the horns and enjoy the trip.

Learn to take a bow and do a flip
and live without a safety net.
Let loose and let ‘er rip,
grab life by the horns and enjoy the trip!

Mnemonics and aspirations

Try to take things in stride.
You are not second-rate.
Don’t forget who you are inside.

Nothing changes if you run and hide.
The road is neither narrow nor straight.
Try to take things in stride.

Find friends in whom you can confide.
She (or he) is worth the wait.
Don’t forget who you are inside.

Everyone you love will someday have died.
Love them now before it’s too late.
Try to take things in stride.

Lose your face; not your pride.
Do not anger. DO. NOT. HATE.
Don’t forget who you are inside.

Learn to live with what you decide.
You’re the author of your own fate.
Try to take things in stride.
Don’t forget who you are inside.
