Sunlight (Poem)

This is for anyone who is feeling down and out

The ones who are suffering from self-doubt

To the point where you want to do something but is too scared it won’t work out

I need you to snap out of it


Grab life and hold it tight with a grip

You got to work every second of the day

Because no matter how much you pray

Tomorrow is not promised


It’s the sad truth that you have to stomach

What that means is that you need to wake up every day you get and wreak havoc

Cause life is not a game like an Xbox

You don’t get a second chance


So you have to treat every day like it’s your last dance

Now the question is are you going to work or are you going to lay down and fold

Or are you going to get up and chase the gold

I suggest you start now cause life waits for no one


But I’m not going to act like I never went through the pain

I know that feeling of not wanting to experiment because you scared it’s going to blow up in your face

The key is to have faith


Have faith in what you create

Have faith in how you play

Have faith in how you perform


Even if you fall don’t feel discouraged

Cause it’s better to try

Than to live with that feeling of guilt

Because you never tried

How would life be if Mike would have never gone back out for the team when he didn’t make it the first year

No one would have known who MJ was nor would have cared

The journey is as tough as you make it be


I’m just trying to make you see

The world doesn’t owe you anything

You have to grind

You got to put in all your time

You got to do what’s necessary to shine

There are times when you just want to say forget it and lay down


But you got to get up and work

Remember this no matter how much it hurt

You got to continue to work

Because it don’t matter what you do

You will always go through the rain before you make it to the sunlight

Zodiac Sign and Comparison:

So this year is about building and growth so with that being said I thought I should start by learning about my inner self. For starters my zodiac sign. If you don’t know, now you know I am a Scorpio. Born on November 17. So I will list something I read online and compare and contrast it with my own personal knowledge of myself. I read most of this information from and, if your wondering.

Soft but don’t show it

Yeah sometimes. That’s weird cause I’m doing it right now. I can be a little emotional at times but choose to mask it with a smile and act like nothing is going on. Often I find myself letting it out in the poems I write.

Never back down from any challenge

A hundred percent true. Well, most of the times. Put it like this. I don’t back down from challenges I’m very passionate about. If my heart not in it then I will most likely back down or show little effort in completing the challenge.

Don’t work well with others. Like to do things on their own.

This couldn’t be even more me. I don’t like group projects or activities. I WORK ALONE. But would definitely want to try and work with someone else in my poetry or something else around that area.

Sarcastic jokes

Always cutting sarcastic jokes around my peers. It’s just something I do just because. So that definitely match up.

Problem Solver

Not really. I will try to give you advice on certain situations but not really that helpful. I will try to give my honest opinion on your situation and give out some type of help. So somewhat me.


Definitely, when it comes to the people or animals I love. Very protective.

Self-criticism. Learn from previous mistakes.

I feel like the past few years I have been reminiscing a lot and casting a clear judgment on those situations. So I think this really applies to me and my life at the moment.


100% even when your not. It’s a gift and a curse.

Likes to think about deep situations

I actually do this a lot. Thinking of what if’s. What if I was in this situation and how would I handle it? That type of thing. Or casting my opinions on different events around the globe that I have never been in.

Stay behind the scenes and analyze things

I swear this is my comfort zone. I’m at peace when I’m just behind the scenes. Writing behind the scenes is clearly my passion.

Likes to wear black and red

This was a weird one to read. Like it’s true but it just weird that, that was a trait. I believe it said buying a Scorpio an outfit in red and black is a perfect gift.

Scorpios can lose their temper when someone is in the way

This has happened many times before. I wish it didn’t but yeah.

Can say some very harsh things when it’s back is against the walls

I gone said some harsh things when in my feelings. It’s just like the temper thing. I gone called my blood sister a bitch. Got in multiple altercations with coaches. I am very guilty of that one.


In summary, I relate to it a lot. Some more than others. The temper thing is one I still want to research more on. Something I’m not happy about and want to better understand it. Expect a blog on that real soon. But until tomorrow, check out more of my blogs. Also, stream and download Poetic Gift. Links will be below and like, comment and follow this blog for more by K. Exum.
