    I saw this pathway
    Bridging synapses and neurons
    Here on
    This staging station
    Of yesterday’s relations

    Then...it seemed
    Among other things
    I’d forsaken “Love of Life”
    For the capturing of the benjamins

    But, now, it seems
    I’ve fully departed
    From my weak and half-hearted
    Attempts at romance
    Finally giving love a chance
    To blossom and consume {me}
    Totally filling the wounds
    --the scarring of my life

    aiight

    I’ve traversed those bridges
    Looked back on life’s yesterdays
    Listening to the whispers
    …the experiences life makes

    now, I recognize the anger
    I’ve cast away from me
    Impatience and frustration
    Fighting hard to control me

    I can see the bitter end
    The path my life may have taken
    Had I continued on my journey
    Ignored the strides my soul was making

    You say you feel the good in me
    The effect I’ve come to have on others
    The smiles my presence now elicit
    Unlike my past…so filled with troubles

    Do you hear what I'm saying
    Do you know how good I feel
    I want to thank you for this day
    For being my strength
    For keeping it real
