Common Sense

You don't hang a million dollar painting
in a thousand dollar home or start an classical
symphony will a ghetto song. Different people
different faces different roads different races.
The path of wisdom is the same, it draws out the
sun and dries the rain. It helps endure the lows
and cherishes the highs but we can't live our lives
in the skies. It cooks a meal, it makes a dish,
it illuminates a dream, it exposes a wish. You can't
win a race if you never start. Anything worth having
is always hard. But if determination fails you'll
begin to tip, the dream will fade and you'll slip.
