Motivational Poem

By regginelson Oct 14, 2013 264 Words
What If You Were Blind?

Imagine if you were blind
Complete darkness
No colors
No views
No beauty
Just pitch black
If you were blind, ask yourself how badly you’d want to see? If pushing yourself to your limits, could give you sight, would you do it? If there were a cure, would you let anything stand in your way? Would you listen to the haters, and the critics to see again?

Do you really want to succeed?
Would you really care if they mocked you?
Laughed at you?
Pointed at you?
Bad-mouthed you?
Would you be concerned about your extreme good?
Or just embrace your extreme work?

What if you had to learn hurt?
Trust pain?
And embrace struggle?
Would you be concerned about being realistic?
Would you figure your odds?
And calculate your chances?

What if you had to spend more time planning your workouts and less time planning your weekend? Would it even be a tough choice?

If the cure for blindness were humility or pain, would you go for it? If the cure for blindness were looking foolish, would you risk it?

If seeing took a fight, would you start swinging?

If the cure was doing things you can’t do, would you attempt that? If a few extra hours, few more drops of sweat, and a little bit more blood was all it took, Would you claim your sight?

Do you really want to succeed?

Then choose to be blind and do whatever it takes to see
Because if you don’t, then you’re just blind anyways.
