    I've been around the block a few times
    I've even dropped a few rhymes
    Scooped a few dimes
    Broken some rules and paid a few fines
    I'm a teacher so u can bet I've molded a few minds
    I've marched with a million men
    Committed what seems like a million sins
    Started about a million trends
    But you'll never catch me on Facebook with about a million friends

    I've seen the best in the game fall from grace
    So I've also seen the best being replaced
    Then just to have some of the worst in the game take their space
    Just to fall down faster because they can't keep up the pace
    I've seen the bad side of the good and the good side of the bad
    I've spit a few line's at the source sound lab

    I've witnessed the birth of my kids
    And the passing of my child
    Such an event almost led to an insanity that drove me wild
    I've verbally battled with god like a mc at the cypher
    But I was only leading my soul towards hell like some demonic pied piper
    Or some form of the DC sniper
    I've fallen from grace and rose back to glory
    But within it all I've regained my humility while writing this story

    I've emptied my mind for now.

    While you may have been through so many things
    No matter how good bad or ugly they may seem
    Its very apparent you still rein
    Not allowing those things to restrain you
    Something many people
    In a similar situation
    Are unable or could not even begin to do
    sometimes your mind, life, and circumstances
    Can take control of you
    But not you….
    Strength and Courage
    Exudes from you
    But that does not surprise me
    You’re a black man
    If no one has ever told you
    And although I may not know you
    I am proud of you
    Keep doing what you do


    This piece is very inspiring and uplifting
    to me. Awesomely Penned!


    Much Luv & Peace,

    ~4EVER :heart:

    This was marvelously expressed! :great:

    The O'Jays and "A Song For You" came to mind as I read it.

    This was a testimony of disappointments and triumphs, of grief and joy, of chaos and peace.

    Very well done and extremely moving.
