everyone has dreams.
everyone has goals.
everyone wants to be the star.
everyone is a rapper, singer, model, or actor.
but out of the billions of people in this world…
Who truly makes it?
everyone has a different idea of success.
some are content working as a store or office manager.
others want to rule in the entertainment world replacing beyonce or jay z.
but, the scary part about life is that there are so many detours and pitfalls,
you may not even make it to the back of the line.
yo ass may miss the bus all together.
i know so many people who have gone to college,
got huge degrees,
and even were on the dean’s list.
they had huge turn outs at their congratulations parties.
they even had me wonder where i stood in life.
but, fast forward to them not even working in the career they went to school for.
i know so many “administrative assistants” it would blow your mind.
i mean, shit, how about the people who have no job?
i don’t get it.
maybe i shouldn’t care.
maybe i should care because i often wonder how do i know i will be a success?
life is moving so slow and the quiet is often very loud.
you look around you and everyone is living their best life,
even if 95% of time it is their best lie.
should i just give it to god and hope for the best?
life is so funny today.
the ones who don’t put in the effort make it farther.
the ones who do end up stagnant.
is the “stagnant” a case of believing your own hype?
angela basset went to school for acting and has no awards.
halle berry fucked a white man on film and won an oscar.
people have so many “yes” people around them that the truth is sometimes nonexistent.
the truth only rings loud and clear when you don’t “make it” and everyone leaves your ass.
so even if you have a little flow,
a nice jump shot,
or extremely good looks….
does that always lead to success?
and what really is that exact path to your golden ticket?
a little ruthlessness?
suck/fuck the right dicks?
Like the title…
