    I grew up in tha projects in ATL
    I lived a hard life that you can tell
    Been there done that I had learned to fail
    Cried for a second chance until I was pail
    Still, I balled and sold drugs didn't know I was going to hell
    Not until .........I was down so far I went to jail
    I asked God to send me someone to make me rise if only for a few
    Asked him to send me someone that would always stay true
    Asked for that someone........and what can I say he sent me you
    He sent me you Destee the person I must say is always true
    He sent me you Destee the person I'm learning few by few
    He sent me you Destee the person I longed for and never knew
    He sent me you
    He sent me you
    When I need a ear or shoulder I know you'll be there
    When I'm crying an need guidance I know you I can cry to you because you care
    You're there because you care
    I was a soldier on tha battle field literally until I met you
    I was the bullet in a gun
    Just waitin to blow until someone takes me from the barrow or the battle is won
    I was so so far from where I am now
    And it's because of this Destee I take this bow
    I bow to you because you have helped me raise
    I bow to you because you have took me under your wings by surprise
    I bow to you because you have made that great sacrifice
    I bow to you
    I bow to you
    I bow to you
    You made the sacrifice to take a poor ghetto child by your side and treated me nice
    And it's because of this I now salute you
    I salute you because you'll still proud of me after everything I been through
    I salute you because you love me and believe in everything I do
    I salute you
    I salute you
    I salute you
    I haven't been here that long
    However since I've been here I can't believe all the good I've done
    I am able to express myself widely
    Tellin my side of the story uniquely
    Adding different stuff to make it appear brightly
    Talking about world issues and local current events proudly
    Gettin feed back not just from me not just from you but all my Destee family
    And it's because of this he send you Destee gladly
    He sent me you because he knew you had a big enough heart for me and my more than 3000 member family
    He knew you could handle me
    He knew you could understand who I be
    He knew you could set me as well as all this family free
    He knew you could hold this great and incredible key
    He sent you Destee to help and love me
    And it's because of this I love you back
    I love you Destee becaue you love me for all I lack
    I love you Destee because you because I know you'll always love me back
    I love you Destee
    I love you Destee
    I love you Destee
    I was surprised because I thought a person can't change until they were old
    How naive was I, because I have changed drastically or so I'm told
    And it's because of you.............it was because of that key you hold
    The key you hold to change
    The key to be anything
    The key to be rearrange
    The key
    The key
    The key
    He sent me you Destee
    I bow to you
    I salute to you
    I love you
    Because you are my key to change

    Yea.. Foxylady. I'm glad for you too.

    I started in the projects and came from the streets. I taught my self a craft. So I would be able to eat. I went to school. I learned a lot. I now have skills none of my friends got. My life will never be the same. I have new friends. No more driving my self insane. Looking over my shoulder. Worrying about the game. I'm truly blessed and I'm glad. Now I have been blessed I can't take all the bows. For me GOD did all the work, and let me get the credit.
