    Man I Am To Be
    By: Dedoceo Habi

    It’s not about the bad times, that we share along with the good
    It’s not about what we should not do… but it is what we should
    It’s not about the struggling, or the things we hate to do
    It’s not about just thinking it, but it’s saying I Love You


    Been thinking about some people, and what they think of me…
    Been thinking to say something, but they’re not worth the worry
    Been thinking it’s time to claim it… too late for all the blues
    Been thinking it’s time for happiness, genuine, sweet, and true


    My roads been long and lonely, seems like for a million years
    My roads been filled with so much joy, since I met you, My Dear
    My roads been sleek and muddy, …I’ve had some storms to defeat
    My roads been plush and wasteful, and life to me had been sweet

    I stopped this evening to look, at pictures of where I’ve been
    I stopped a tide of distractions, and now I sing again
    I stopped this one time to look, and this - I say - I did see
    I stopped a stagnate puddle; I became the Man I Am To Be


    Now ask you may ask, oh reader? Ask a question of me:
    Ask why I share my deepest thoughts, when we just pass in the sea
    I answer you this moment, (and this is the TRUTH complete)
    We all do need one another, for the village to raise the fam’ly


    This season you think of goodness, no matter what the bad
    ‘Cause all my love is with you, so accept it - don’t be mad
    Comes 2004 tomorrow, and I want us to change things
    To pull together as one, in harmony, our spirits can sing

    Let’s find a worthy dealing, let’s decide to do it right
    Let’s understand that our true worth, is in unity - so let’s unite
    Regardless of what you decide, I hope you know one thing
    I’m reaching high as Eagles fly to grab up everything!

    Please think on this with prayer, ‘cause it may just pass you by
    This chance to make a thing unique that you can show with pride
    Let reshape how we love, let’s set the right example
    Let’s let them see that we are free, our happiness is more then ample

    I’ve made it there and it’s good, I have no shame in loving
    You’ll see my smile or winks… I’m even out there hugging
    Nah, I’m not mad or off my chair, and I’m not even trippin’
    I’m sittin’ here, fine in my groove, hmmm, I’m just finger lickin’

    Good day to you and remember to love, and don’t you forget to kiss
    You never know when you might wake to find someone will be missed
    I’m out this time, I’ve gotta go, my prayers will call your name
    Please think of love, and sometimes me, for I’ll be doin’ the same


    I thank The God, for these words that were allowed to grace my humble mind.
