I saw a commercial recently where someone says to a young athlete they think they know you now show them what they don’t know. Well if you’re asking.
You don’t know that I have been down but I have never been out.
You don’t know that while others march to the beat of the same drummer I salsa to the rhythms of Tito Puente.
You don’t know what others see as my failures I see as building blocks to my limitless possibilities.
You don’t know that I’m able to avoid the rain because my belief in myself let’s me soar above the clouds.
You don’t know that I understand there is no such thing as forever so I waste not one and embrace each and every day.
You don’t know that I refuse to conform to the box society says I belong but rather define my own destiny.
You don’t know that while others may fear the unknown I embrace it as a means to open my mind to new possibilities and growth.
You don’t know that while I am the best I can be today tomorrow I know I will be better.
You thought you knew me now I’ve shown you what you didn’t know.
