Flip the Script
This poem is dedicated to anyone feeling challenged, dismayed, overwhelmed, discouraged, apathetic, sad, mad, depressed or just simply bored. Feel free to add your own adjective. Hopefully, these words will inspire you to make a change in your current situation, considering it is not ideal or even bearable. Life isn’t alwaze a breeze, but like one, stay cool and flip the script, my friend. Lastly, feel free to share with anyone.
When things are tough, it’s time to change.
Life or attitude: things need to be rearranged.
In life, you gotta play the cards you’re dealt.
‘Cuz there’ll be times when the pressure is felt.
Sometimes in the fan of life, the shit will hit.
And that’s when you simply gotta flip the script.
It may be a rough and lonely road,
but it’s your choice to get what you’re owed.
With everyone caught up in their own hustles,
you gotta keep working at it as if they were muscles.
It’s not debatable that you’re fully capable.
Everyone is able to turn the tables.
It may take some time, but later down the line,
just stay on the grind and things’ll be fine.
Keep on a righteous path and don’t be missing your ship when it sails.
As sweet as a girl that’s kissing your lips before she bails,
and dipping a chick in front of males,
it’s easy to be flippin’ the script from a few fails.
All ideas are good; most may be flops,
but know that you’ll alwaze have the chops
to be great. It’s never too late.
You gotta hurry and not wait,
‘cuz life is steadily moving.
If there were a beat, you gotta be readily grooving.
By giving up, you’re already dead.
Do what it takes to get ahead,
but follow your compass’ moral route and make the bright choices.
As best you can, try and shake the doubt and listen to the right voices.
Like you would turn on the hallway light, you gotta switch it up.
And like a versatile player up to bat, time to switch hit up.
Put trust in yourself and in God.
Keep them uplifting notes in your ears like an iPod.
If the initial plan doesn’t pan out,
or if time seems to have ran out,
don’t be ashamed to take a hand out.
Would you rather blend in or stand out?
Time for Plan B, even if it’s the same plan.
No one ever stays the same, man.
So from this, make some change for the train fare of life
and alwaze take care in life.
Stay strong, cuz we all get weak.
If you need help, go out and seek it.
If you can’t flip the script, make effort and tweak it!
