Today I take responsibility for tomorrow

At the beginning of the day we wake to a world of endless possibility
And as the day progresses we go through obstacles that challenge our abilities
Going through happiness and heartbreak tests not only our strength, but agility
When you reach for love and it’s denied, it can literally break your stability
You think your soul will cry because a love that was in your mind actually had no feasibility
And what was hope floating now seems to be a slow downing in what was a sea of tranquility
Overtly we ask questions and but it’s what we do covertly that tests our character’s adaptability
What is the meaning of all the tests we go through? It is what you will it to be
Because fulfillment in life is different to each person; that is the nature of man’s versatility
So if you can ask yourself the hard questions, and answer them with honest admissibility
Then you owe it to yourself to apply what you say you know to your own growth and viability
Some people face a sunny high noon and some struggle with cloudy afternoon’s seeming futility
But everyone has been through shit to become who they are, no one wears a cloak of impermeability
And from what I’ve learned of this life is that the only thing that is certain is unpredictability
That it’s often those who put on a mask of civility that lash out with a private hostility
And it’s often those that seek recognition that secretly wish for peace and invisibility

The sunsets are a daily reminder that tomorrow is a chance to control our destiny’s probability
Because at the end of the day, personal happiness is still your own responsibility
