i wrote this a few days ago for one of eddie’s friends who had a few
setbacks in the past year and who is now pursuing a life that she never
intended. but i know that this can apply to a lot of ppl going through
career troubles right now as well…

listen dear, i hear that it’s been a tough year /
fearing not getting that dream career /
and tears appear drowning all your hope /
meandering in confusion attempting to cope /
like roadblocks barricading the paths you planned /
driving you to be stranded on alien land /
abandoning security to grasp opportunity /
nobody has immunity to fear so don’t fear uncertainty /
don’t focus on the windows that were shut before /
know that something amazing lies beyond this door /
and take hold of this chance to dream some more /
with newly-acquired desire igniting its core /
find peace by releasing discontents of the past /
don’t let regret be set in the shadows you cast /
utilize what you’ve gained to revolutionize your future /
look behind and learn lessons with experience as your teacher /
build milestones of pride and smile at the end of each chapter /
fill your heart with memories that fill your voice with laughter /
keep your eyes to the skies even if they might blind you /
knowing damn well that you got your friends right behind you /
so as long as there’s a tomorrow, no day should have sorrow /
lead your life with dignity as if millions will follow /
and light up the world with the candle that you burn /
for everything that happens is an experience that you learn /
take each day as a gift and tend the wisdom you impart /
because success can only be attained by giving it some Heart.
