They said we were born just yesterday, they said what do we know? How long have we stayed here?
All these sound like insults but no, they are facts.
Yes, we were born just yesterday but we stayed up all night to unravel the histories of ages past. We were born just yesterday but we stayed up all night to decipher the obstacles that fell our heroes past. Yes, we were born just yesterday but we stayed up all night to find solutions to tomorrow’s problems already!
Yes, we know not so much because we focus on what is work for us and refuse to be distracted by fake visions and missions. We know not so much because we avoid knowing whatever is not in God’s curriculum for us. We know not so much because we found out so much is too much and ‘too much’ can change our lanes of travel so we refuse to know so much which is too much!
Yes, we have not stayed here too long, but we have traveled far back and way forth to understand that time itself is a revealer. It will soon reveal the depth of our strive and the height of our drive to not only survive— but to thrive in not only these present days, but also the ages even yet to come.
We were born just yesterday but we stayed up all night to travel into the ages past and centuries to come!
