Stop Crawling To The Middle Of It


Stop crawling to the middle of it.
To prove to anyone you are confident.
Don't be that dude,
To become the one who's battered.
And left with bruises.

Stop crawling to the middle of it.
To prove with a doing you can be productive.
Don't be that dude,
Like so many before who had been abused.

Throw away that motive with a notion,
You'll remain in control.
Too many are standing by and waiting,
To pop your cork to slow your roll.
And throw away that focus,
You'll be respected for a climbing to the top.
More people want to see you tossed,
To the bottom and stopped.

Don't be that dude,
To be crushed by others with those attitudes.
Dont' be that dude,
To prove to anyone you can be used.

Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Stop crawling to the middle of it...
To affirm with a doing that you can be fooled.

Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Stop crawling to the middle of it...
To prove to anyone that you can be tricked.
Don't you be that dude,
To let your cork pop to slow your roll.
Don't you be that dude,
To have those doors slam on your closed.
Don't you be that dude.

Don't you be that dude.
Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Don't you be that dude.
Nothing that you do will be a benefit.
All attempts you make will be undone quick.

Don't you be that dude.
Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Don't you be that dude.
Nothing that you do will be a benefit.
All attempts you make will be undone quick.

Don't you be that dude.
All attempts you make will be undone quick.
Don't you be that dude.
All attempts you make will be undone quick.
Stop crawling to the middle of it.
Nothing that you do will be a benefit.
Don't be that dude,
To prove you can be used.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
