Big Willie - "Keep Refusing"

Recommended Posts

I havent posted anything in here for a long while, so this is my latest effort. Concept is pretty easy to grab, basically it the fight to stay positive through all the drama and hate in the world that a person can become pressured with. Feedback greatly appreciated.

Big Willie - Keep Refusing

I’m caught in a deception of where my life is leading

Caught in the process of progression, whilst I’m bleeding

From the inside, I’m paralyzed with the deep confusion

Keep pursuing my dreams, but fate just keeps refusing

How can I progress when my shoulders carry lead weight?

Problems on my mind prevent me from thinking straight

I’m stuck in my existence wondering what’ll happen next

Wonder what the future brings, what should I expect?

Fulfilled in my destiny, but still I’m searching for more

Climbed ladders to find answer but cant get of the floor

Becomes a mission just to be living in this world today

I feel imprisoned from decisions that I’m yet to make

Because every corner that I take just reveals more hate

Searching for a clear path, but get the feeling it’s too late

Congested with questions of why the worlds depressing

Events out of my control got my soul second guessing

Why do bombs have to drop? Lives lost through spite

It’s the lessons that only we can teach ourselves in life

The whole globe involved, I’m feeling like the outsider

Left out in the cold and believing the worlds on a timer

It’s a different concept for me because I’m a positive guy

See the cup as half full and always look on the bright side

But sometimes when you’re mind is playing tricks on you

It’s hard to compile ya thoughts it’s hard to pull through

Racking my brain, wondering how can I cope with it all

Keep searching for clues, the light at the end of the tunnel

When all the while I feel like somebody flicked the switch

And my last chance of success is cursed and bewitched

I can’t move forward, when less logic is all that disperses

How drug dealers earn more cash than doctors and nurses

It’s worthless; keep thinking that something has to give

How can a life get taken before it’s had a chance to live?

People in an illusion that all things happen for a reason

But no theory in the world will ever get me believing

That a small child dying will end up good for the globe

When murderers and rapists acts just remain unsolved

My beliefs dissolve its something my brain cant process

With all this going on its no wonder we feel this stress

But none the less, it’s important to stay positive in life

So forthcoming generations can uphold what’s right

Coz even as bad as it may seem this isn’t the conclusion

Fate was pulling me back… now it’s me that’s refusing

I’m pushing on through; keep my head raised in the sky

Keep my sights set to positive as life’s compass guides

Me to the fate I’m pursuing the happiness that awaits me

I’m certain its coming I just don’t know what the day be

Negative people try to drag me down, I’m progressing still

Because if I don’t believe in myself then no-one else will

You try and slow me down; I’ll walk by and keep grinning

When you displaying hate it just confirms that I’m winning

Your words seem hard, but your defence is set up wrong

Hating on me and trying to remove me from where I belong

But what you don’t realise is that when you start dissing

You’re just adding fuel to the fire, injecting ammunition

For me to then purposely demolish your self integrity

And it leaves your words to burn in hell corrosively

You’ll learn from this mistake, live by your own fate

You showed me I’ve made it, by expressing your hate

Life will throws things at you, people will try and deceive

What they say means nothing, it’s powered by jealousy

My boundaries can’t be broken, my morals are infinite

My desire of progression becomes sparked by your fight

I know it’s hard to continue when tears fall like our future

And with the hate we bring, even winners turn to losers

Don’t confuse the issue or satisfy the ones that diss you

Dust off ya should free of all that you’ve been through

Put one foot at a time and march you’re way to success

Keep reaching for your dream, nothing more, nothing less

People will say it can’t be done, say that nobody can do it

Then turn around and interrupt the person that’s doing it

They’re just ignorant with egos, too eager to dismiss

They think if they aint skilled enough then no-one else is

Pile on the negative feedback, coz I’m not going away

Find yourself another victim coz this one’s here to stay

"It’s a different concept for me because I’m a positive guy

See the cup as half full and always look on the bright side" - I thought these lines were particularly cool.

"Fate was pulling me back… now it’s me that’s refusing" - That was a really dope ending.

It's a great verse overall. A good length and honest subject matter.

Whats good y'all, just letting ya know I've added another verse. This verse is basically the flip around of how to defend yourself when people hate on you and when you feel like a victim. Let me know what ya think.

Thanks for the comments so far. :thumbsup:

HEy stank. I really enjoyed reading this very uplifting piece.

and this has been my motto for quite some tyme... tho its as real as can be..

Negative people try to drag me down, I’m progressing still

Because if I don’t believe in myself then no-one else will

Keep writing, and expressing yourself... because you do that very well...
