When I was younger.... I'd put my arms in my shirt and told people I lost my arms... Would restart the video game whenever I knew I was going to lose... Slept with all the stuffed animals as a child so none of them got offended... Had that one pen with 4 colors, and tried to push all the buttons at once.. Poured soda into the cap and acting like I were taking shots. The hardest decision was choosing which Nintendo game to play. Waited behind a door to scare someone, then leaving because they're taking too long to come out or you had to pee. Faked being asleep, so I could be carried to bed. Used to think that the moon followed my car. Watching two drops of rain roll down window and pretending it was a race. Went on the computer just to use Paint. The only 'fake' friends I had were invisible ones. I used to sing in the shower. (Now..?? I make life's decisions in there) Swallowed an apple seed, and I was scared to death that an apple was going to grow in my tummy. Getting a bruised knee heals better than a broken heart. Remember when we were kids and couldn't wait to grow up... What the hell were we thinking?
The road to success is not straight. There is a curb called Failure, a loop called Confusion; speed bumps called Friends; red lights called Enemies; caution lights called Family. You will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination; an engine called Perseverance; insurance called Faith, and a driver called Hope, you will make it to a place called Success!!
