#4 (S. Lee)

Ole self-reliance,
That tried and true cliche
Explaining everything success is about,
Agency,
Grit,
Resilience,
All that.

I love when those on top,
The ones who have made it,
Especially when they came from nothing,
Make it seem
Like all it takes
Is believing in oneself,
Getting it done, personally getting it done.

I’ve got no argument on this one,
I get where I get because of what I put into it,
When I believe, I get farther,
When I’m shy or lack confidence, here’s where I’ll stay.
So that’s why I like hearing what they say,
Their blunt force reminder that their world is
“What you make of it.”

Keep making,
If for no one else, for yourself.
