Favorite Quote:
"Don't tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon."

All I got in this world is a dream in one hand,
And tears in the other, trying to devise a plan,
To advance to the Promised Land,
Taking the road paved with quick sand,
Sometimes, things are great and I move forward fast,
And the only thing that could catch me is my past,
But, one day it caught me; I tripped, fell and crashed,
Then I sat there and pondered, “Hell can’t be that bad,”
…This sand in my mouth can’t be good for my health,
The hardest part of a hard life is life itself,
The only thing harder is question we ask her:
“Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,”
Send me a Moses to part the Sea of troubles,
And as I walk through Hell, I see the Canaan at the end of the tunnel,

This is to portray the "stride before the fall" and that no matter how bad traffic gets, there's light at the end of the road
