Where Is Your Strength, Courage And Wisdom?

Hey Lovelies, its a brand new day...another chance for something magnificent or depressing to happen. If your 'yesterday' was anything like mine, badly coloured by a myriad of happenstances, enough to frustrate even the BRAVEST of hearts...Then you understand what I mean. Apart from the 'awesome' news that the young African Actress 'Lupita Nyongo won an oscar for best supporting actress... I have been nothing but 'sour' and 'peeved' that my internet network providers have joined in the league of the many wonders that conspire with the universe to SABOTAGE my efforts to communicate. Hahahah.

So, if you had a TERRIBLE monday like me...Or you are simply frustrated by the slippery WETNESS of religious 'insanity' in this country, the SEDUCTION of political 'slavery', the hard ERECTION of economic 'downtime' or you just have pure ORGASMIC 'disdain' for the short supply of fuel, the 'epileptic' supply of electricity, extra large 'DDD-Cup' of DEBTS or not enough STIMULATION to drive you (Hehehe). Then you need a little 'pick me up'. What better way to motivate yourself to go in the crowd and grab your CROWN today like the KINGS and QUEENS that you are...than to listen to beautiful music?!

Well, I first encountered this song when it was released in March 2001. It opened my eyes to all the possibilities within me and it has never failed to pick me up, re-inspire and remind me of where I'm going. Lupita's big WIN is a bold statement "that no matter who you are or where you come from...your DREAMS are VALID". But you do need #STRENGTH, #COURAGE and #WISDOM to plough. So I decided to share this song and its lyrics ofcourse. And oh! You may hear how similar the 'intro' beats and instrumentals sound to Tuface's song "Ifeniba"...ofcourse you know, who lifted who's beat...Hehehe...Do the maths! Wink! Please, let me know if it inspires you as much as it inspires me... Here it is;

Artist: INDIA ARIE

LISTEN, WHILE YOU READ...



VERSE 1

Inside my head there lives a dream
That I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me
That I've been hiding for much too long
â€~Cause I've been too afraid to let it show
â€~Cause I'm scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow

BRIDGE

It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my face
It's been elusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith, it's time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

CHORUS

Strength, courage and wisdom
And it's been inside of me all along
Strength, courage and wisdom
Inside of me

VERSE 2

Behind my pride there lives a me
That knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul
And in my soul there is a voice
But I've been, too afraid to make a choice
â€~Cause I'm scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen

BRIDGE

It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my face
It's been elusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith, it's time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

CHORUS

Strength, courage and wisdom
It's been inside of me all along
Strength, courage and wisdom
Inside of me

REFRAIN

I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
â€~Cause I know, now that I've opened up my heart I know that
Anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be
So let it be, so let it be

CHORUS

Strength, courage and wisdom
It's been inside of me all along
Strength, courage and wisdom
It's been inside of me all along, now everyday I'm praying for

Strength, courage and wisdom
To find me, yeah
Strength, courage and wisdom
Inside of me

I found it in me, I found it finally
I'm sure to keep it. So I say, "Thank you"...

Hope you enjoyed it? Have A Terrific Tuesday Lovelies!
