Be Great


People talk behind your back because they fear it’ll never get to you.
Exaggerating your truth to turn others against you.
For they’ve seen your potential and hope for the worst from you.
So that the higher level you’re trying to reach will never be beneath you.
So they try to pull you down, and make you drown.
But the obvious is if they’re attempting to pull you down, they’re beneath you.
You’re already on your way.
No sense in arguing with those who buried their dreams long before you came.
You’re loved heavily, that they hate.
To be able to be silent when others whisper or boldly rip your hope to shreds of dismay.
Is a strength that takes little than most think.
It takes less to smile, and even less to be great.
