Veni Vidi Vici (I came, I saw, I conquered)

Desire does not come
As easy as you think

Is not something that is given
It is earned

You must see it
You must want it
You must fight for it
You must live it

You gag on the
Meaning of the word

As you sit there, your
Mind starts day dreaming
Of achieving greatness

But you do not work
For it then the dream

What inspired me is my brother and my class project assignment which was to choose an element of greatness and i chose desire. my brother had a child at 16. so it inspired me to show how its not easy to achieve greatness he had wanted to be a NBA player but he might not now be able to.
