We Are The Sermon [Not What Is Said About Us]

Open the window
And let the air of your country in
Face reality, if it slaps you in the face, Let it sting
You are here and this where you are.
If you want paradise, it's time to make your habitation look like it.

I once had a friend who never liked calling things as they are
She spoke in a language no one understood and got no help.
She said happy ten times in a very short sentence and everyone thought she was an angel
We never connected personally cause I thought one day she would fly away to another place and that would break my heart.

Stand at you door and face the giants of the valley you live in
When you bring them down, it would be recorded in history you were an Overcomer
Cause you can be an Overcomer without ever being one cause you chose to fight no battles.
Fight, oh fight, this is how you get stronger.
Fight, oh fight, this is how you become who you are.

I once had a friend who neglected the negatives
The positives were his favorite things
Highlight the negatives and he would call you a pessimist
This is like calling the doctor a murderer cause he detected some tumors.

I believe the light has a greater focus when we know the darkness we are facing
I believe who we are is a sermon for only us . . . for a while.

Sometimes the best thing that have been said about us are actually 'Notes to Self'.
We are forgetful about who we are
We need a reminder and the definitions of our being are to be spoken over and over to our own self first.
The only thing that reminds the world is what has been done.
The world tags you a mad man if you keep naming yourself, shouting your praise and they don't see the characteristics of your name. . . after a while.
In fact after a while they get fed up and term you background music

Dear you, the focus is not the world here but that though the name you've been given is beautiful and true, you also have to be beautiful and true.

Open the window
Let the air of your country in
Face reality
If you want paradise, transform your hell
Don't neglect the negatives but develop them into colorful positives
Stand at your door
Face the Giants of the valley
Most of all remember: We are the sermon not what is said about us
Take your chances
You can
And this is your challenge.
