Never compare yourself to anyone,
Some people may take days to reach their dreams,
Others months or even years,
Never wish to be like them because all fingers are not the same.
No matter how long time may seem,
Always remember life is an express road, and overtaking is allowed,
You are not in a competition with anyone,
With perseverance and determination, you will get there someday.
He is rich and has attention and so what?
She is beautiful and so what?
She is a fair colored lady and so you want to bleach? Hmm
You are also beautiful in your own way,
Oh yeah she was my mate, and she is now in the university, and so what?
Do you know what he or she had gone through before he got there?
Do not envy someone’s grace if you do not know the pain he had gone through.
Just be you, the road might not be too smooth, and it might be rough,
But you need to strive very hard till you also achieve your dreams.
Never commit the mistake of saying I wished I was him or I wished I was her,
If you do not appreciate yourself, no one else would.
The best is still ahead of you.
And so what?
