Favorite Quote:
The Expert in anything was once the Beginner.

He wants to dream big;
You want him to dream small.
He wants to think large;
You remind him he’s not tall.

He wants to reach the stars;
She tells him he’ll barely touch the sky.
He smirks and says, “I will!”
She laughs and says, “Let me see you try.”

He wants to break out the box,
That they trapped him inside.
He’s nervous and frightened;
They too make his dream subside.

Now he’s stuck between four walls.
And this is where it gets hectic.
He begins to doubt himself;
Now his future becomes a skeptic.

He is now I.
I is now He.
Together they wonder, what can be.
It’s too dark for either one of them to see.

It’s dangerous because they have a little bit of doubt.
It’s worse with all the negativity around.
No, No,No, consumes their mind.
But they must find that Yes, Yes, Yes, deep inside.

This peice is basically about giving inspiration and motivation for when the going gets tough. Lots of people including me have a big dream but have negativty all around us. So everytime you keep hearing no even from your parents just know that your yes is the ONLY yes that matters.
