Meditate The Troubles

Troubled minds will tell it all
The soul is hurting, the heart is in pain, and my eyes are trying to push the tears back

Stressful life filled with hope and desire, but not knowing  
I feel as though I might be headed in the right direction but right now, this very moment- Life is a struggle

Holding the world still for a moment in my mind, so I don’t have to face the problems

But I believe I was once told I have to get through the problems to reach my goals, or at least not let them get in my way.  “Use force, if you have to!”   That’s what my mind was yelling out from my thought’s point of view.

But what if I can’t get through my problems? No I can’t think like that. I have no choice but to excel.  I have dreams and goals, and plans to meet those dreams and goals.  I can’t keep working this 9-5 job.  I won’t.   And if I was to tell anyone else these thoughts, they mind think I was strange because to work a 9-5 is all their minds and actions will allow them to accomplish.  
I’ve already started, went through, and completed school. So what’s next???

School teaches you how to work a 9-5 job,
And frankly, I don’t want that
I believe there’s something more and better

I sit and I wonder about this life ahead of me
And I glance through my mind and I can’t forget about the past
I wonder what the future has laid out for me.
But then I remembered my future is whatever I want it to be
It’s truly made up by mind’s thoughts and body’s actions

I know what I want and I know what I don’t want
I believe in myself because no else will, not in the way I can
