I need that Sparkle in your eyes because today has been pretty dark. I need that courage in you cause today I have no heart. I need to know that everything will be okay cause right now I have no hope. I need to hear you tell me that I can do it, cause right now I don’t want to Go—to those places unseen, those places that I have been called. To those people that I must meet, to those words that must write, to those that I must speak. I am afraid that if I step out the boat that I will fail cause everyone else who has tried has done so. I am afraid that YOU are not who YOU say YOU are or that YOU will not do what you said that YOU’LL do. I am afraid that I am not enough. I am just an okay nigga from the hood with a little talent. There has to be someone better than me. Why would you call me? It had to be a mistake. Shit, I can’t do this! I would rather stay in the boat with the rest of the normal motherfuckers. That shit is comfortable. I will ignore this burning and yearning in my soul to be great, to do what it is you have called me to be.
BUT I DARE YOU TO SHOW ME THAT SPARKLE, CAUSE IF YOU DO I AM GOING TO FOLLOW and RUN TO THE LIGHT!
