I Don't Mind

I don't mind being a failure in your eyes

Sometimes failures help us to thrive

Thomas Edison made it clear when he spoke,

I'm learning 10,000 ways it won't work

I don't mind being broken publicly

There is power in my story

"If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life"

That's just pure wisdom from the great Marcus Garvey, I like!

I don't mind that you disagree

But my instinct will be what guides me

Nelson Mandella, he said it bold,

“I am the captain of my soul.”

I don't mind having to start over

Winning requires some degree of failure

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Martin Luther King Jr.'s words give me hope

I don't mind not being perfect

As long as I progress with courage

“Who are you to judge the life I live?

I know I'm not perfect

-and I don't live to be-

but before you start pointing fingers...

make sure your hands are clean!”

Thank you, Bob Marley

I don't mind doing the work

Faith is my solace, I never lose hope

'Nothing will work unless you do'

What Maya Angelou said here is very true

"Money just draws flies"

Mahalia Jackson wrote those lines

Perhaps she was feeling like I am in this moment

I'm not your lucky charm, I am nobody's token

I don't mind, not being accepted

All the greats were once rejected

My allegiance is to the Divine

Everything else must fall inline
