Is the day worth it when you know you have so much to do but you don't want to do any of it? When shortcuts seem like the long way around. When you are called for a different purpose in life but are stuck living out the existence you have carved for yourself.

Is it worth it when you know you can dominate all that you do but you don't feel the need to? When it all really seems for not and the answer is right in from of you but you or those around you are too blind to see it.

Is it worth it when you have been fighting for so long and you end up in a rut that you know all so well and expressed in so many ways people are starting to guess your existence in the real world?

Is it worth it when your actual talents are put to waste doing the same menial tasks as everyone else?

Is it worth taking the time to clean yourself up and take on the world knowing all well that you are expendable and can be replaced at any moment in time?

Is it worth not chasing your dream because of all the other responsibilities that you have to take care of?

Is it worth the time, pain, and sweat that you know it will take to make dreams become reality?

What is it going to take to pull yourself up from what feels like an endless void, pull yourself together and make your dreams come true?
