No Stress. God Bless.


At the end of the day,
I’m not gonna stress about it
Because if you were really down with it
There would be no way around it.
A part of my life for better or for worse,
So there’s no point in blowing up in a curse.
I’d much rather step back to reality
Get out of this superficial vanity,
Avoiding the unnecessary profanity.
I’ll lose myself in my optimistic insanity
To find that my success has longevity.
That it’s life was always in the plan.
I just needed to rid my head of all the demand.
I just needed to understand.
It all happens for a reason,
Even if at first glance
It looks like treason,
Even if it doesn’t unfold this season.
It’ll happen when the time is right,
So for now keep your work nice and tight
And don’t you ever lose your sight.
