This title came to me when I heard some shocking news.
         Incredible astonishment (unimaginable surprise); when the news events that were taking place around the world came into my mind. It's preposterous (utterly absurd), when two sides are unable to come together about ongoing situations. Never in my lifetime did I think that something like this would even exist. Things just kept getting worse, like having a bad dream or nightmare. Lingering on in your brain are the haunting thoughts are sure to cripple you. "Will I make it (live) today or tomorrow", is the question that arises. The uncertainty of it all can take a huge toll; it's like having a brain freeze (the shock is so unbelievable that you can't move). These stunning realities make people want to give up. Despite all of the rhetoric out there, there's a better opportunity waiting for you.

         We have the unique ability to be who we are; we are no different than anybody else. No one understands us the way we understand ourselves. We have the potential to use our creative mind; how we use it is up to us. By standing against the barriers that get in our way, the stamina or fortitude (courage in pain or adversity) that we need to excel (beat) our handicaps, is to be the best that we can be. Our ideas work by putting forth the effort; we need to break through these barriers; the strongholds that wrap around our ability to evolve.

         In order to proceed forth with our ambitions, it's best to pick ourselves up, even if it's a little bit at a time, when circumstances in life cause us to fall back a notch or two. Our ambitions will show us who we are, where we've been, and where we'll be going.

         Prevalent (generally existing or occurring) for battling the things in life that rob us of our dignity, respect, and honor; it's the prompting inside of us that helps us to somehow rise above the ugliness, the go-to-it-ness that we've mastered throughout the years, ambitiously gives us the amount of strength that we need.

         With all of our might, we've got to win the battle that surrounds us. By shielding ourselves by the goodness of others, we can protect ourselves from the threats that abound in the world we live in.
