Getting Started...

This morning I had this thought, not a new one, but a thought nontheless..
WE MUST START WHERE WE ARE AND MOVE FORWARD...
That has always been my motto, even when I didnt know I had a motto...
I can recall times when a young girl and things were going on around me,
That I had absolutely no control over...
I mean bottom of the barrel hard,
The next morning after it was over,
Because it all ends at some point, one way or the other,
I would get up...pray, spruce myself up and go out to meet the day,
Now I am not going to sit here and tell you that I always did it gracefully,
Umm, uh uh,
For years I did it covered with ATTITUDE,
Because at the time I felt that was the only way to survive,
I had to keep them off of me,
All those who didnt want anything, didnt want to do anything,
And most importantly didnt want me to do a dang thang,
They would remind me that I was a poor, black girl,
And that poor black girls didnt have a snowball's chance in hell of doing anything,
HA HA HA...
So I started working as a mere babe,
Saving my money,
And purchasing the things that sustained me,
Mostly books...
And fighting my way through the madness...
The naysayers,
The 'I dont want to be nothings and dont want you to be nothings either...'
Those who wouldnt finish a thing,
Because they didnt believe in getting started...
Nowadays I see that even more prevalently,
Grown men who havent worked in years,
Living from pillar to post,
Depending on the largesse of others,
And putting down those the depend on,
Ha Ha Ha,
Then there are the young women who have saddled themselves,
With children, having hoped and prayed that the babies would be the answer to,
The questions they didnt even know they were asking,
And unable to move forward,
Because they felt they were done before they got started,
Well I beg to differ with all of them,
Because every day the Lord gives you breath is a day you can start,
Baby steps can an will take you places,
You just must get it, pray, believe, spruce yourself up,
And to GET STARTED,,,

BE PEACE...
