“N” Inspiration: “Numb/Encore” by Jay Z and Linkin Park
Born to be great, that’s what they said.
It’s in the genes, it’s expected
in a large family with a deep history.
But what about my story?
What if my plan is different?
Assuming one-size-fits-all is ignorant.
Success isn’t a wedding and 2.5 kids.
Not a house with a white picket fence.
I don’t measure success by meeting a status quo.
It’s not about having more friends than foes.
It’s about love, kindness and giving back.
It’s about doing what I love, creating an impact.
Don’t know what you are expecting of me;
Can you to have faith? Can you believe?
My happiness doesn’t depend on your approval.
I’m not aiming to please, my choices aren’t communal.
It’s my time to rise up, the time is now.
Time to be bold, raise my voice and shout!
Do you have a rise up and be great song? What is your favorite song mash-up and/or collaboration project?
