For years my brother was torn whether or not he should go to Cali. I told him that that I knew he'd get there someday and when he did, he should listen to the song above for me.
Then one day, he up and went.
That week, I got a call from a Cali number and when I answered, it was just the song playing. And I knew he was where he needed to be.
I woke up today with it in my head. I think about it every so often cause there're so many good lines from it:
- Life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big heart, somea us gotta run a little faster cuz we gotta later start
- I'd be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender
- if everybody's a sinner then everybody could be a winner
- wrap up your pity and turn it to ambition
So I interrupt my usual tales of complete randomness to say that you should take it seriously. It's such a hateful thing because in the best case, you lose time. At the worst - well the outcome is like any other terminal disease.
The line that I particularly like from that song goes:
I'ma scuffle and struggle until I'm breathless and weakTo get to where you need to be, you gotta. And you should, until you're breathless and weak.
Then you should do it again, yeah?
Back to complete randomness tomorrow.
Music: you gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
