it's all good

Quiet noise made be a single voice




I hear a rumour on the street that life is hard, no its true, its all over my Facebook feed, my Twitter feed and indeed in my life…its hard, right…

Well no…it’s not

Life isn’t hard, we make it hard,
If you want a simpler life, stop making it hard.
You want respect, earn it
Want people to treat you right, treat them right
Want to have people be there for you, be there for them
Want people to like you, be there for others
Want to be popular, be honest and open
Want someone who doesn’t treat you unfairly, treat others fairly..
Want success, work for it
you get the drift..

Like isn’t hard, we make it hard,

Just don’t be a dick and go on from there…


If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it

If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it

If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,

If gladly you’ll sweat for it,
Fret for it,
Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it,

If you’ll simply go after that thing that you want.
With all your capacity,
Strength and sagacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,

If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,

If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You’ll get it!
