What Other's Can't

The opportunity to do what others can’t

Inspires me to win.

This might come off strange and self-serving.

Some might call it a sin.

 

Yo- you- you like what?

They’ll ask with worry etched into their face

To which I repeat; I like doing what others can’t.

I can’t let opportunity go to waste.

 

The opportunity to do what others can’t

Inspires me to win.

 

Somewhere out there someone is stuck

with nowhere to call home.

Somewhere out there someone has a dream

but lacks the opportunity.

 

The opportunity to do what others can’t

Inspires me to win.

 

It doesn’t seem right 

To walk by an opportunity

That so many people desperately crave

It’s not helpful to them

It’s not helpful to me.

The only way to make it worthwhile 

To accomplish what others can’t succeed. 

 

The opportunity to do what others can’t

inspires me to win.

 

It’s not that I’m heartless

It’s not that I’m bitch

It just doesn’t make sense to fail

when you’re both physical and mentally fit

 

The opportunity to do what others can’t

inspires me to win.

 

To horner theses dremers 

And hope seekers alike,

One has to appreciate chances

And fight to see them done right. 

 

The opportunity to do what others can’t

inspires me to win.

Yes, I’ll repeat.

What inspires me to win

Is the knowledge that I can accomplish great feats.
