Flicker

Baby girl you’re a flame

And if you knew what I knew

You wouldn’t be moving the same

Fragile and fleeting

Your ego depleting

But you never give up

Every goal you’re completing

It’s hard and it hurts

But just do it in spurts

Baby steps got us to the moon

So don’t expect rewards soon

But the longer you wait

The reward, man it’s great

Some call it luck, some call it fate

But it was your own ambition

That put that food on your plate

The haters they’ll blow

And they might blow you out

But with time your flame gets bigger

And you’ll stay lit no doubt

And then one day you’ll be blinding

And the blows will fuel your fire

Then you’ll be so big and strong

Alone you’ll protect your whole empire

So baby girl stay lit, keep shining, don’t flop

You can do anything in life

As long as you don’t stop
