Face the sun..
that way even your shadow follows you
Face the trouble..
That way even your courage follows you
Face the emotion..
that way even your life follows you
Face the fear..
That way even the world follows you
Some live for past glory.
Some live for the glory ahead.
You weren’t made to stand in the shadow,
But to know your own power.
Stop fighting your inner demons
Make sure you both are on the same side.
The race of life is long
and in the end it’s only with your self!
will bring you to the start line
will take you to the finish line
It’s the race of life my dear,
Befriend your inner self
The toughest race is with oneself!
As I get ready one more time,
to restart the race of my life,
there is but one question to ponder.
The shadow of my self doubts,
Have I left them trailing behind,
trying to catch up with me?
Or are they in front of me,
from running the race full on?
Life is not race
for we are always on
a ‘Start-line of Opportunities’.
But only those who learn
from the past and not drag it forth,
do make it forward;
for those who carry forth
collapse with their shadows
of the dark past.
Guide the shadow,
not let the shadow guide you.
A Pessimist & an Optimist
When races in the track of Life
One always attempts to win
The Other merely tries to survive.
The race of life is all about perspective!
Focus backward or focus forward?!
Every angle of how you see or take things
produces different result.
Choose a wiser perspective
that gets you moving forward!
To succeed in any race,
I must try,
the sun I must face,
if I do that, I win with grace,
if I let the shadows bog me down,
sure as hell, I lose the crown.
doesn’t have to overshadow
I’m left contemplating;
am I running to,
leads to different results!
Leave the shadow behind
or let the shadow haunt you.
You chase the past
while I aim for my future.
That’s your problem.
