Where you learned to walk
And how to talk,
A space to call your own.
Then years passed
And something changed
Your life was rearranged.
You thought your mistakes made you an outcast.
But home is still home.
It’s not a perfect place,
But a permanent space
Where no matter what, you’ll never be alone.
Why do you hide?
You say, “I’m such a mistake.”
Who told you that lie?
You just went and cried.
I asked why you were a mistake.
You named everything you didn’t possess,
So I told you being true was better than being fake.
But still you chased worldly success.
I wondered why money would fix you.
“Then I could have everything,” you reprove.
But you’re lying, your words aren’t true:
Money can’t buy you love.
I asked you if you wanted to be content.
“Yes,” you said, in awe.
So I told you how to live without regret:
Just be who you are.
Stop chasing money.
Sometimes we forget that walls are built one brick at a time, not just overnight. Just like we forget some things take time before they’re completed. Wherever you’re at: be patient. All things get built in time.
Daily Tip: Listen to others, and one day they will return the favor.
I have had the opportunity to sit for six hours and listen to people talk, I’ve gone to conferences and concerts and gatherings to just listen to people. It’s amazing to think that words could change the outcome of our day – but they can. Listening is a powerful, powerful tool. Try it sometime.
Even if your dreams are small, it never hurt anyone to listen to someone else.
