    Told me I Wouldn’t stand here

    still standing

    fired me

    still working

    left me

    still in company

    betrayed me

    till holding

    been broke

    negative balance

    and found a way

    2 get paid

    who doubted me

    doubt my worth

    doubted the books

    doubted the art

    doubted the grades

    doubted the ride

    laughed at me

    these my friends

    but the spoken word

    the gospels

    carried me

    thru tornadoes

    storms

    when my eyes closed

    my heart stopped beating

    awoke me

    from my death

    said live, live

    you gotta live

    you gotta purpose

    you got love

    passion

    its room time

    me, you, and the world
