Invincible

A salary man’s accused of his lack of time
A studying man’s belittled for his dream
An investing man’s unbelieved for achieving wealth
What shall he do the man who seeks approval?

Not to seek approval but staying true to self
Not to cease earning wisdom and strength
Not to compromise on how valuable time is spent
That makes him invincible the man who knows himself!

That stoic preparation

That you leave and I’m not allowed to lend
That you rent and I’m not allowed to spend
That you tell and I’m not allowed to ask
That you try and I’m not allowed to help
That you refuse and I’m not allowed to offer

That you provoke and I’m not inclined to fight

That you wonder and I’m stoically prepared

That you take away but I control my mind

That I’m allowed alone
