    Building my power
    Keep my eyes open
    Shed all doubt

    Have you ever seen a spider build their web?
    One of the most intricate patterns finished unfurl
    Catching what’s needed to sustain its life
    Simulate the similar in this world

    Back and forth working on a master plan
    Unlike any other insect, creature or man
    Waiting patiently in one place
    For things to happen in my life
    Astounding grace
    The traps are formed

    All that is needed does come in
    Entrapment looks like a moral sin
    Mean no harm just taking notes
    Notice survival take its course

    Like a spider I build.
    I’m ready to pounce
    On captured opportunity opening once

    My talents are limitless
    Embedded deep in my mind
    Can’t get to my knowledge
    You want inside?
    Say the word that brings me out
    Wrap you up.
    Take you into
    My world

    Do what you will.
    To tear up my plans.
    Break me down I can build
    I have influence in this world

    Look over my conquest
    Should I take it to live?
    Bound in my capture
    Steering clear of evil in this world
    Choosing only things that help me open out

    I got a message just yesterday
    That elevated me to new heights
    I know my blessing my friends and foes
    I choose to stay away from negative folks

    Talking about I work to much
    I should postpone my plans to grow
    There is bad business in every turn
    I live I love
    I continuously learn
    I bring out the positive as much as I can
    Leaving the rest that doesn’t sustain my needs

    Isn't there a saying that goes an idle mind is the devil's workshop? Anyway, this poem brought that saying to mind, and it is food for thought, why let greatness wait for tomorrow? I like what you're saying and how you said it brotha.

    Hi Brother HODEE
    very creative dear brother
    we do have to keep our mind
