Dear friend,
Are you a winner, or a loser?
Are you a whiner, or a chooser?
Do you let your abusers
Take advantage of you?
Or do you break free
And rip your skin off the super glue?

Are you a winner or loser?
Do you let your past define you?
Or are you like, “Fuck it, I’m gonna color my own new hue”

Are you a winner or loser?
Do you care what the world thinks of you?
Or do you seize the day, and build yourself up… more and more of you?

Are you a loser or winner
Do you bring home the bacon and make your own dinner?

Are you a loser or winner,
Can you withstand the cruel cold of the darkest winter?

Are you a loser or winner,
Will you be a good role model to your kids or
Will you blame everyone else around you
… will you ever take yourself accounted for you?

Winners and losers,
There are The life affirmers
Who are the life choosers.

They are strong, active, and see the future as bright and wide… panoramic.

So friend, are you gonna set sail again,
Even though your risks sank the titanic?
Will you be gigantic or small?

Will you stand tall over the pettiness and bullshit?
Will you keep spraying your creativity, and empty your clip?
Will you keep working hard, until your arms tear?
Do you got strong balls, and bulletproof underwear?

It don’t matter if you’re a girl or a guy, we’re both equally inspired and divine.

So friend,
Let’s dance together
Regardless of the shitty weather.

BE STRONG,
ERIC
