    I done being the nice guy cause being the nice guy don’t pay
    Imma start being the ******* who gets his way
    Saying whatever I feel I need to say
    And I’m starting this new me… today
    And I hope I make myself clear because I have no plans to sway
    This is either black or white, but in no way is it gray
    I did not come here to play
    And honestly I don’t care if you think its okay
    But no longer if a price must be paid will I be the one to pay
    Maybe this is too much to swallow then take some off you tray
    And I’m not changing so don’t think you can mold me like clay
    The term “nice guys finish last” is not a cliché
    Its real talk, hell I live it everyday
    My head has been bowed for so long there a dent in my chest from when I pray
    Although being is ******* is not image I want to portray
    But things have to change and there can be no delay
    Cause my heart has been broke for so long its beginning to decay
    And I must give it 100 percent, no only going halfway
    No making excuses for those I push away
    I got to do what’s best for me, I’m not trying to catch the bouquet
    See I give 100 percent in what I do and I don’t stray
    I don’t see the world as my oyster, I don’t need a buffet
    And my spirits are up, and I will allow no dismay
    I’ll watch who’s around me, the ones that parlay
    Cause sometimes the one closest to you are the ones that will betray
    Smile in your face with motives like the KKK
    So I let this sink in.. let you see how much it weigh
    While I take a few shots of this Gin, made by Bombay
    I made my point that I needed to covey
    Cause this is getting too long and looking more like an essay.

    Nice. It seems you thought to keep the flow going although the idea got old. You would do better with saying more with less words, hence no essay.
