    I Come to Realized
    I’ve
    I can’t stand this lifestyle, the drama, an uncertainty
    No, I’m not contemplating suicide, but planning for a surgery
    A dissection of this horror flick! Better know as my life
    Time I crawl from the trenches! Stop living trife!
    Now when I say trife. Don’t think I mean dead wrong!
    Simply with out any direction. You know, my senses honed!
    Pointed in the right direction, which is no way but up!
    Trying to get there in a hurry, or should I say rather abrupt!
    I’m tired of being stuck in neutral, watching others go by!
    Time is of the essence: I must reach for the sky!
    Stop saying what I’m gone do, making plans but never following thru
    Sitting back procrastinating, waiting on you!
    You as in life to hand me something on a platter
    Not putting forth the effort to climb life’s ladder!
    For my future is what I make of it, possibly my on demise!
    Every minute I waste, I take my eye off the prize!
    Now that I grown a man I come to realize
    People like the old me, never really make it!
    They kick back and wait for success to hit them
    While I’ve learned to run and take it!
    Go get what’s rightfully mine, for then I’ll know I’ve earned it!
    When I look back and reflect, I’ll also feel I deserved this!
    Finally, I’ve made it! I don’t mean that I’m rich!
    Simply put, I’m in a position where things are no longer just a wish!
