The Only Way to Excel

The only way the excel 

Is to be held

Accountable for all you actions

Or you will find no satisfaction 

I cannot do it for you

If I did then freedom world no longer be your virtue 

Yeah you have to yield to be one with Me

But oneness cannot come from someone I never see

What is your life about?

What do you value?

What can you go without? 

Must all sacrifice be forced

Or can your soul get aligned and let your spirit run the course? 

How long must you hear the same ol things?

At what time will you hear the bell ring?

And realize it’s no longer time for class

It’s time to apply and get up off your ahh

The teacher gets tired of teaching the same thing

But cannot move on because you’re still not mastering

This is the basic stuff too

If you cannot get this the other stuff won’t profit you

Reteach & repeat 

The cycle of what’s actually been happening

Because you refuse to do your homework 

You’re getting lazy with your coursework 

It’s not primary school anymore 

You’ve moved to the level of “more in store”

But you’ll always be reaching

never achieving

as long as you’re tricked into believing

that what you’re doing is enough

Because it’s not, and it’s just blocking you from the Real stuff

Don’t be complacent 

Don’t let this world tell you your place in it


The only way to excel 

Is to study my word & do it well

How many more examples

I have given you ample 

Time to know

That I don’t want you to do this alone

Because the only way to excel 

Is to study & me for yourself
