There’s no shortcut to a dream

20151101_172118.jpg

I can jump through hoops

crash through windows

break down doors

Yet, there’s no shortcut to a dream

Nothing has ever come easy

for poverty left many doors unopened

and many windows with a jagged ledge

But nothing has been insurmountable

Genies in a bottle don’t exist

But hard work, perseverance and love

bring forth one’s fortune

And then one must walk that path up high

There’s no shortcut to a dream

But my arms will pull me up

My legs will carry me forward

and my belief in me will keep me going for the long haul
