The idea of a lesson is not marked by the imprints of regrets nor the dissatisfaction of a time lived. It is initiated by the willingness to learn and the desire to be better. Change is not easy but it is possible. It might not be what we want but it is definitely what we need. It is at its presence that we realize the remedy for our downfalls.

When a river changes its course due to an obstacle, it embodies overwhelming turbulence at that juncture. As it approaches its middle ground, it experiences the rebirth of its peaceful flow. Happy new year to y’all and as we start it with a mission to redefine our efforts and what not, it is imperative to be clear about what should not be on our way.

Having said that, today’s pen and paper point captures the fruitfulness and exact attitude of Fantasia Barrino in her beautiful track, Lose to Win. The first day I heard this song, I was actually taking out the trash and you can be sure I dumped it in the bin like I was paid to! The song created a powerful spirit in me, one that tuned every aspect of my life to clarity. Yo! people you need to clear everything that has no value in your life. Clean, scrub, splash, HEAD TO THE LAUNDRYMAT if you have to. I dont care what you do, just get rid of the bugs and make your life squeaky clean! Lose to Win was written by the talented Dennis Lambert, Andrea Martin, Francine Vicki Golde and Harmony Samuels and given its powerful words I do make a toast to the lives of these amazing brains. Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you get up close and candid, enjoy the lyrics 😉

LOSE TO WIN by Fantasia Barrino Hmmm-hmmmm
Ever felt so ugly, pretending that he loves me
Sometimes it’s just not money
never had to afford me
Now I’m sick and tired of
you just taking right off
Knowing I’d forgive you

You ain’t here for dinner Like I’m a beginner,
I loved you for your inner, inner, inner
And the next guy is out there, somewhere,
But you won’t dare
’cause you’re too scared

(Chorus)
Have you ever needed someone so bad
But he ain’t willing to make it last?
Sometimes you gotta lose to win again.

If it makes you cry, cry, cry
And all you do is fight
Can’t get no sleep at night
Sometimes you gotta lose to win again.

Ever felt this sorry?
All you did was worry
You didn’t want nobody,
thought it would get better
But it’s falling more than
Oh it’s falling more than ever

I just hoped that we would
Cause you’re always up to no good
Maybe it’ll take someone else, to show me better
But I don’t wanna leave ya
Oh, yeah.

(Chorus)
Have you ever needed someone so bad
But he ain’t willing to make it last?
Sometimes you gotta lose to win again.

If it makes you cry, cry, cry
And all you do is fight
Can’t get no sleep at night
Sometimes you gotta lose to win again.

Some of you know what it feels like
Caught up just in his life
Don’t wanna try again, thinking what’s the difference?
Why am I not interested?
Cause when you’ve been broken, you feel like no one can fix it Yeah

(Chorus)
Have you ever needed someone so bad (needed someone so bad)
But he ain’t willing to make it last (whoa, yeah)?
Sometimes you gotta lose to win again (win again, oh and if it makes you cry)

If it makes you cry, cry, cry (cause all you do is fight)
All you do is fight Can you not sleep at night (sometimes you gotta) Sometimes you gotta lose to win again. (gotta lose, yeah yeah) (Oh, oh, whoa) (Oh, sometimes you got to lose, you got to lose, to win again, yeah) Hey! Have you ever needed someone so bad? (have you ever?) (so bad yeah) To make it last Sometimes you gotta lose to win again (Sometimes you gotta lose to win again)
