Nothing can stop you,

unless you stop yourself.

Most people want to stop

for fear, that they won’t be able to do it.

As I get older, I realize this fear is unfounded

I need things to do

regardless, if I fail or succeed

it’s the possibility of success—

We all have this life to live

We all need something to do

The arbitrary markers of age—are designed to make us quit

People will scoff

Our circumstances will change

You might not have what you need

and if you do it, and keep doing it, regardless—you become it

there is no greater reward than that.

Most give-in to hobbies or NOTHING

They don’t believe they deserve it

They don’t want to be doing it when they’re 70—

that’s a good reason to quit.

For doing it, should be done for no other reason than to do it.

People are worried that they will be called a failure

that they will be second rate

Who cares?

I would rather have something to do

that I choose

I don’t want to be told what to do

Do you?

I don’t want someone to give me a task

Do you?

I don’t want to be their slave

Do you?

I would rather spend my entire life trying to do—

to prove ’em all wrong

there’s romance in that.
