    I'm on my 4th Long Island Ice Tea
    And it's getting the best of me
    Got me remembering where I use to be
    Places that was not good for me
    Got me numb to my reality
    Disregarding the brutality
    Reaching for the spirituality
    Can I speak to you in total confidentiality
    Without Having to worry about legality
    I treat my woman like and queen and that just a normality
    It's how I was raised just a formality
    Open and hold the door, say thank you and please is just my hospitality
    Now some of them did not appreciate it and thats a casualty
    But I don't blame them, they just have a different view of family
    It made me realize I have look beyond the balcony
    And out into the Galaxy
    And I did that anxiously
    I remember other telling me it was blasphemy
    They said it was going to be a catastrophe
    They question my sanity
    The audacity
    Yet I don't care what they think actually
    My feeling grew naturally
    And I mean rapidly and substantially
    I love looking at her anatomy
    I tried to say that tactfully
    But I can say it happily
    With a heathy heart and a loving mentality
    I guess I could be more specific but I prefer to speak in generality
    But this is heavy and she's my center of gravity
    And I'm all in, I'm not doing casually
    I'm in love and still have not reached my full capacity
    I'm all in, I don't hold back if you know my personality
    In us I see congeniality
    She has nestled in deep within my chest cavity
    To be without her it would be a tragedy
    But I don't act irrationally
    From my life experience I should be a professor at a prestigious academy
    And writing this I tried to do it elaborately
    But the ice tea has me deleting all the profanity
    You may not feel this one and with that I offer you amnesty
    So I guess I'll end this thankfully
    While I continue to finish my 5th cup of tea........
