    again...
    i find myself
    knee deep in the dirty south

    i've missed the april showers
    with flowers blooming
    and four distinct seasons
    that speaks to the reasons
    for why i'm here

    i've missed family and friends
    that will be there...{when}
    stand by me...in the end
    when the thick **** comes {again}
    and i'm broke
    lost
    discouraged
    malnurished
    or the pressures of my
    everyday
    gets the best of me

    as the honeysuckle scent
    tickle my senses
    and life's special instances
    keep me going
    i be knowing
    the dirty south be's my home

    i'm home y'all.
