Anticipation or Instant Gratification

Instant gratification isn’t my style
There is no pleasure unless it was earned
I prefer to stop and smell the roses
Can’t play with fire with out getting burned

I have struggled, overcame, and achieved
I have come out from the belly of the beast
To be the person I am today
It was a battle to say the least

The tingling in my stomach
As the anticipation builds inside
I’ll take my time going through this world
The joyful youth  in me has not died

Patience and compromise became my allies
The rush of this fast paced world my only foe
Let this moment linger on forever
Let its delight be all I know
