Toilet’s backed up again
the stink, is migrating slowly
through my apartment
and it’s too cold outside to open a window.
Life throws adversity at me, like an 8th grade pitcher
who can throw hard, but can’t get it in the glove
I keep getting hit, and it hurts
but I have a secret
I love the pain.
Pain is only terrible
when it’s unbearable
When my spirit is strong enough
pain is a way to test my endurance
I hope to have a strong spirit, until the end.
People who accumulate things
don’t have a clue
They don’t realize
pain is where it’s at
God gave us pain, so that we can test our strength
The problem is…
most of us aren’t strong enough
and we wish the pain would go away
The more pain you can tolerate in your life
the more joy you will have
you will be grateful
without a TV
without a girlfriend
without a friend
without a car
Maybe, all you have are words
and you laugh, because you can entertain yourself
in the worst circumstances
Your competition is afraid of losing
but you welcome loss
because life is about losing
and not the other way around.
Don’t they realize, they all will lose their lives?
They’re hanging onto it
like it might abandon them
Why are they worried about that?
The more stuff you have
the more stuff you will lose.
We are all losers in life
the GREATS drank themselves into oblivion
because of this fact
I say, let death come
let the fire burn the apartment down
let the toilets clog
and the traffic congest
I’m not going to try to hold onto something
that isn’t worth anything
amount to nothing
because they don’t invest
They’re too worried about losing
they’ve totally missed the point
that cuts strait to their heart.
