The song "Lose Yourself" by Eminem has always inspired me and helped me push through hard times. I always think at every opportunity, this is my one shot, my one opportunity. These lyrics are literally lines that run through my mind. I decided today to look them up, so I could read them verbatim... and then I decided to switch the masculine pronouns and nouns to feminine ones in my head. I wanted to make it more concrete so I wrote the verses that jive most with me down on my phone, with the revisions. I'm posting it here so it's public as well.
If you had
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?
Her palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on her sweater already, mom's spaghetti
She's nervous, but on the surface she looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but she keeps on forgettin'
What she wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
She opens her mouth, but the words won't come out
She's chokin', how, everybody's jokin' now
The clocks run out, times up, over, blaow!
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, she choked
She's so mad, but she won't give up that easy? No
She won't have it, she knows her whole back city's ropes
It don't matter, she's dope, she knows that, but she's broke
She's so stacked that she knows, when she goes back to her mobile home, that's when its
Back to the lab again yo, this whole rhapsody
She better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass her
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better
And I will end this here. Goodnight. Save & Publish.
