What can you do with weights on your feet?
Lugging around baggage like woe is me
There’s a tickle in your soul but you can’t quite leap
To inspire is your desire but you seem to have lost your fire
I gotta know I gotta know
I gotta go I gotta go
I gotta GO, GO, GO
NO, NO, NO
It’s sickens you to get so many no’s when
rich beneficiaries use nepotism and laugh along with your foes and
though you have goals, “you only deserve no’s”
Weights on your Feet?
How you gonna go somewhere with weights on your feet?
Letting folks tell you No
Girl, don’t you know that your special
Can’t nobody take away your God-given wisdom
For some odd reason everybody thinks their supposed to win
But how can you win while you win and you win
It’s something about having just a little bit of intuition
Incite that makes your feelings right about who is right to deal with
I can’t quite figure it out, this world’s spectrum
But somebody’s got to lose
And if you are a natural-born winner you gotta pay your dues
Take the shackles off your own feet
Break the No’s and turn them into fiascoes
of small wishes and actions that didn’t work
until you manifest the idea and event that you were made to search for
Who are they to give you weight?
Who are you to put them on your feet?
Keep moving girl
Cause every No is driven to deliver
The Pie that the Boomers longed for
The Pie of peace, love, and success
Can’t forget money
I don’t care what generation you are in
Money holds weight
The secret intuition that rest in my soul advises that you don’t put money on your feet
Heavy or not heavy sheets of green, fly away easy
Don’t be greedy for the paper
for the value is what you are really searching for
The Friendship, The fun, The Laughs, The Crys, The Family, The Support
Sad when people think that money can buy all that
Don’t you know you don’t need a dime for that?
Success is that
So as you work hard to reach your goals make sure you find some folk to work with you
to trust as friends,
to have fun discovering new ideas with
to crack jokes with
to make light of the sad struggles that attempt to bring tears to your eyes
Work closely with people until you formed a family tighter than few have ever been born with
Though people sometimes can’t stand people
Along with that bond you form through the struggles
comes the supportive network that shows love no matter what new projects
you have in mind to produce.
Sky’s the limit?
Take the weights off your feet
Whose to say we can’t go beyond the heavens, knock on the door, and say Hello God!
