That furnace That burning fire inside of you That inner passion That calling That is burning fiercely inside of you Hold dearly onto it Do not let it go It is your calling Your savior Your true unique identity. It will make you stand out It will distinguish you It will make you a conqueror It will identify you amongst the crowd It will make you stand out in the midst It is your calling. It is that vision That dream That keeps you up at night That disturbs your thought That can't just let you be That stabs through your soul It is your calling. Only you see it Only you feel it You will be mocked You will be ridiculed Called crazy It will be out ruled But, that is your calling. Never give up on it Never prove them right Never settle for less Never accept living on your knees Hold onto it It is your calling. Work on it Labor for it No matter the struggle No matter the hardship No matter the wait It is worth it Rather than regretting one day Why you didn't make it come to pass 'Coz' it is your calling Your uniqueness.
Not So Soon
Young girl Be very careful when he tells you 'I LOVE YOU' Don't be so happy soon Don't make yourself available so soon Don't feel so special soon Just because he says so Don't become arrogant so soon To those that warn you of him Don't believe him so soon Don't accept any word that comes out of his mouth so soon Don't give out your heart so soon Don't avail your body to him so soon Don't accept his visit proposals so soon Never hate those who warn you of him so soon Don't open up to him so soon Don't tell him every story you are told of him so soon Don't be too crazy over him so soon Don't undress for him so soon Because he says he will 'never leave you' Don't believe him so soon When he says you mean the whole world to him Don't conclude your friends are jealous of you When they warn you of him Don't feel so lucky so soon Because 'he wants you in his life' Young girl Pause and remember What if all of them are right after all? What if things go wrong? Will he still want to be with you? What if you tell him to wait? Will he be willing to do so? Think about it.
