  • Wake Up

    Wake up and smell the coffee,
    taste the greatness of English Toffee,
    It's time for work, so stay awake,
    Open yours eyes, life is no longer fake.

    Time to see the truth,
    how each person finishes their youth,
    begins life, at a different definition,
    viewing life from a whole new position.

    Now listen...
    Childhood was lots of fun you'll be missin',
    now you must work for what you receive,
    things are no longer make believe,
    life's new deception deceived.
    Take some time to breathe.

    Whatever you give to this Earth,
    (the one your seed was planted on since birth)
    you will always receive the same amount,
    that you give, whether you bother or not to count.
    It's not about your bank account, your intent is paramount.

    Have faith in yourself, you are the ruler,
    of your mind, body, and spirit, you're cooler.
    You can achieve anything with enough efforts,
    Keep at it, no matter how hard, even if in deft spurts.

    Now time to wake up and see the world.
    Lots of hard work, and obstacles hurled.
    People ignored and people adored,
    An endless battle of struggle and hope,
    Always climbing, or barely holding the rope.

    Smell the coffee, and be prepared.
    Life is hard, no need to be scared.
    The start is the often hardest part,
    but it's always the one remembered most by the heart.

    Bedtime is long in the distance, miles from here.
    No matter what is thrown at you, remember your gear,
    your family and friends, the ones there first,
    they've loved you through it all, the good and the worst.

    Childhood ends tonight, go without a fight.
    Just prepare for challenges in the future,
    always learn and keep your intents pure.
    End this without harm, sound the alarm.

    WAKE UP.

    No offense intended, but it seemed like it was written by someone relatively young. It isn't the grammar, but the outlook that I recognize, but no longer recall

      No offense taken.. I did write this in my youth (or decently younger than I am now).. it would likely be much different if I made it again today

      The edits I made were not to change what I wrote but to make it easier to read/ understand the message it conveyed.
      The theme of "wake up" was likely inspired by one of my favourite video games.. final fantasy 7..

      I sometimes like to read this to myself if I feel complacent.... to remind me of the determination I once had ... and can have...

      Thank you for reading and the comment.. Hope it reminded you of good times..

    FixXxer - I've found that when waking, a goal or a dream is a good focus to start the day. Funny thing about a goal or a dream. First you make the dream and then before you know it, the dream starts remaking you. In its pursuit, you begin to strip off bad habits, discard wasteful thinking and repel unneeded distractions. There is a chipping away at the old self so as to remake it into the new self needed to make a dream come true. Perhaps therein lies the pulse of human transformation that creates change in our world outside of us after there is first a change of the world inside of us. Hopefully we're not too old to enjoy it when we finally get it. Thank FixXxer for letting me rant and rave a little. Enjoyed your creativity. Namyh

      There are lots of games that are unblocked in school genre but some of them are just boring. Recently I play a cooking game and that was just amazing game of all time according to my point of view. you should try this at least for your experience

        Love ‘The start is the often hardest part,
        but it's always the one remembered most by the heart.​’ So very true - life is a road full of surprises to be savored and appreciated for the lessons it teaches us. Great poem.
