They say you were born to be great.
You grow up believing you can do anything
You are invincible,
Stong.
Stready.
You are extraordinary.
And then,
You
Fail.
Fail.
That is something that doesn’t happen.
Others,
Others fail.
You, no you, you don’t.
You are no longer extraordinary.
Because the only difference between ordinary and extraordinary is extra and the isn’t you.
At least,
Not.
Any.
More.
The belief in great, that pillar you clung to when you thought the impossible was truly impossible, that is until you did it.
That crumbles,
Turns to dust,
You thought that…
You thought.
Thought.
What you think isn’t truth.  And if you cling to that belief the you are living a beautiful lie.
I mean,
Ignorance is bliss.
Right?
Wrong.
To live a lie is a terrible thing, to finally have our pillar crumble isn’t a failure it’s an awakening.
So wake up.
Rise.
And crumble.
Crumble.
For you are a Phoenix.
And you must burn before you shine.
