If you give in, they win:

There ain't no one in the world who can decide your limit,
Cause if you're playing this game, then you're playin' to win it.

I don't believe in the words of the hopeless and dry;
These wings are born full of freedom and they're achin' to fly.

I don't care if the world gives me scars on my back,
Cause I will wear them with pride over a suit that is black.

I am the heaven and the hell and I'll make you believe it;
I am an angel and a demon and I swear that you'll feel it.

Cause I ain't never gonna give in - never say die.
Until the moment that I am ash I will always have tried.

Until the very last minute, when the skies are grey,
You see it raining black lightning but I'll never go astray.

Because the path is before me; it's laden with dirt,
But I will trudge across the mud to the heart of the earth.

I am the core of what makes you; the drill that'll breakthrough,
So follow if you feel me cause I'm comin' right at you.

Your attitudes are made from a bottle of courage,
But when you're slapped in the face - Man the failure discourage.
But you will know it's the truth, When I point it right at you:
That failure is a step for the glory that is due;
Never break your form and never stop till you die-
If you breathe your last breath, then you should do it while you try!


I am the core of everything that you know that has made you;
I am the drill, of all the hope that'll break through!
So follow if you feel it cause I do and I dare,
I ain't afraid, never fear, any burden I bear.

- C-Dragon ft. Moolah Khalid, 22nd April 2013
Hello everyone ^^ Tonight I've got quite a lovely piece from the Captain. Normally I interpret his thoughts about it, but tonight I think I'll quote directly (I transcribed his asian gangsta accent too x3):

"You know e'rybody thinks that shit is gonna be easy. I know it's not. You always gonna find somethin' that's gonna get in your way and tear you apart. However, you gotta understand that these are the things that give the change we need to become somethin' more.

Khalid and I were rejected from almost all the graduate jobs this year, the few remaining will probably end in rejection too. I accept that and next year I'mma up my game. Gonna write more, gonna get out and get more exposure. Gonna learn more about the industry. If I ain't a fit for the game, then I gotta do my best to fit in with the game.

You play, you play to win and THAT'S stuntin'. Success don't come over night, we always growin' and we may lose it sometimes, but on the day we ball; we ball hard!"

Essentially, one shouldn't give up no matter how bad things get and I think this rap exemplifies that. Hope you all enjoy PYON~ (I'm going to stop asking for raises .3.)

P.S. Captain will be back next week I think, till then please put up with me x3

I can really here it, and feel it all the same. This is an amazing piece, beautiful. It really struck me as a reader, and I can relate to it, as they say, "When a poet gives the reader his poem, it is then their own." As we can all relate to it in some way of our own, I believe.
This really portrays a lot of voice and emotion and truth, and it is simply impacting and inspirational. It is almost tear-jerking.
-"There ain't no one in the world who can decide your limit,
Cause if you're playing this game, then you're playin' to win it." Just the first line grabs so much of attention to a reader in a way that makes them feel like they are not nothing, but in fact, amazing, just by being who they are. Which is really what makes this such a beautiful piece, by the impact! And the poet has done so well just by doing that in the first line.

And although it would take me a while to go through and completely analyze this piece and try to understand it, I would like to, but cannot due to time. But just one read through has given me a great impact of pleasure and incredible bewilderment.
Absolutely wonderful. Thank you.

"I am the core of what makes you; the drill that'll break through..." I knew it was impossible to write something like this without including a subtle reference to Gurren Lagann. :dummy:

As someone who has two brothers, I agree that he probably won't appreciate but it would be fun to do anyways.

True. I would do it to my other brother, but he's under the age of five so it wouldn't be fun
