    I ain’t gonna live the rest of my life
    as somebody I’m not!

    Yesterday I was trynna be "so good"
    trynna speak carefully
    but I was still misunderstood

    I ain’t gonna spend the rest of my life
    living someone else’s dream
    Other peoples plans don’t work for me
    no matter how good they seem

    I’m not gonna rob myself,
    even though it may hurt another
    I think being honest about the situation
    is better than being an half-assed lover

    I ain’t fixin to mess around and look
    back on 40 years of regret
    Even if I’m alone, with the Spirit to guide
    I’m gonna claim what I’m bout to get

    just taking what wisdom I've learned from others, and applying it in a practical, honest way in my own life. Some things I truly don't have to experience myself. I've seen the affects of trying to be someone you're not. Not good, in the long haul.

    Thank you for the read, everyone.

    Shade :heart:
