I love how Eminem starts his song. He’s trying to break out and get his break in the rap world. He steps outside of himself and says what he thinks others are saying about him when he steps onto the stage:
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti
He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin’
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s chokin’, how, everybody’s jokin’ now
The clocks run out, times up, over, blaow!
Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked
He’s so mad, but he won’t give up that easy
I just love this self introspection. Here he is looking at himself as the way that he believes others see him. He fails….He’s a mess, but he keeps on plugging. I love how he fails and says that he’s mad but he won’t give up that easily. Everyone fails, but his persistence turned out pretty well for him. Make sure that you have the same focus and tenacity….
If you had
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?
