Conceit can never truly become great.

Greatness can listen

and take in more instruction

to add benefits to its disposition.


Conceited people stop growing.

Competition catches up with them down the line.

Humble people are always craving for knowledge.

They are the ones who usually prosper in sublime.


Time is a father.

It’s wise to give ear to this parent’s advice,

because his words are destined to impact

the very greatest of mortal might.


Satisfaction equates to plight

when it comes to the issue of competition.

A distraction is complacency to flight

since the heavens is what success is blitzin’.


I’m wishin’

for more of the youth to keep dreamin’

but more in accordance with reality

because everybody can’t be a star.

Real people are not made by salary.


Our world is like an art gallery

in the sense that we all have talent,

which is why it’s vital for us to figure out what our gifts are

because in life we all learn from one another.
