    With an uncertain future
    For you and the world
    You arrived on time

    didn’t wait didn’t hesitate
    No false starts
    No practice runs
    When you were scheduled to come
    You came

    Welcome to my world

    I will give you my name
    I will give you my time
    I will show you places
    I will show you things
    I will share with you all that is mine

    Welcome to my world

    Life will teach you so much if you listen with ALL

    Some mistakes you can afford and some mistakes you cannot
    YOU must learn to know the difference
    Before you make a CANNOT

    I wish that I could say
    I have paved the way
    But the way things are looking….
    All I can do is PRAY

    To commit to A course
    And know it is true
    You must study it well and know that it’s you

    To pursue and posses
    Is my wish for you

    DIGNITY in all that you do

    Never compromise your dignity
    KNOW that if you do, you will not be respected by any…
    Not even the ones who you compromised TO

    Do not confuse dignity with false pride
    False pride will wear the clothes of dignity seeking to confuse

    Don’t be fooled check out the SHOES

    Dignity stands on the sturdy shoes of principle while
    False pride wares the busted shoes of self-importance

    Never foster HATE
    It will eat you alive while inviting age, disease and disaster to join in the fiesta

    Do not waste your time in fear of being used
    Know that it WILL happen
    Yes
    You will play the fool
    And It ain’t that deep

    Weigh the value of every interaction
    Decide its true value to you
    Make your decisions
    Heart and mind in a combined consensus

    Life is the process of honing your mind body and spirit as you develop your character
    Every interaction you will have and every thing that you will do, see, hear, or allow inside through whatever way it may
    will either dull or sharpen your mind body & spirit
    CHOOSE wisely those things that will hone the three

    Choose your words carefully before you speak,
    they can never be rescinded, undone or deleted from the ear heart or mind
    What you say and how you say it will establish the you that is you.
    You may be forgiven for a careless word
    But a careless word will always be heard

    Respect all of Gods’ children and their right to be

    If somehow you do make a mistake or two

    Remember

    The fight ain’t over until the last bell rings
    And the ringing of the bell is mostly up to you
