WILL U

You are following a script by which you live your life.

If you didn't write the script, other people did and you are living the life of their dreams.

If you did write the script

by which you live your life,

CONGRATULATIONS! 

Continue creating the life of your dreams!

WILL U

I

Billions have come, billions have gone

Throughout their lives they've learned, 

lost and won

Billions more will come and go

What deep truths will their lives show

 

For their time, for their place, 

for the air that they breathed

For their loves, for their hates, 

for their good and bad deeds

 

And now here U rise

one of the billions still here

looking for answers

to who, what, when where

 

If it’s fame that U want

she’s elusive and demanding

Will U let her own U

or will U stand up and keep standing

 

If it’s wealth that U seek

there are sacrifices to gain her

Will U become a slave to her will

or supervise and maintain her

 

If your best life is what you’re after

take or leave the wealth and fame

Will U decide what gives your life meaning

or watch others live and live the same

 

Lives don’t unfold by accident

we create them to some degree

by asking questions of ourselves

our answers guide us, U will see

Yes, there’s randomness and luck

and some rely on destiny

but what U focus on has power

to shape the person U will be

 

So, what U need to do now

before going all in

before investing your soul

in a race U won’t win,

is write the script for your life

U will be the lead actor,

the producer, the director

the editor, the caster

 

This will be your story

decide now how you'll live it

what matters, what doesn't 

How much effort you'll give it

 

Will U follow the crowd

give up your life to live theirs

or will U discover your purpose 

even if no one else dares
