Sanity is an illusion people came up with to make themselves feel better.


Wishes are wishes
They rarely come true.
You don't get what you ask,
You receive what you do

Nothing is gained
By those who don't seek
Nor by those
Who stand by, meek

If you want something done,
Do it yourself
Don't wait around
For an offer of help.

To do your best
And give it your all,
To stand back up
After a fall

To make wishes come true
That's what it means
To keep going forward
Still chasing your dreams

After all of the effort,
One comes to see,
Nothing worth receiving
Is gotten for free.

For those people out there who stand by waiting for things to drop into their laps. Including me.
