    Content with life and what it brings
    Can sometimes blind you to unexpected things
    Growth and purpose become obsolete
    When you are falling apart at the seems
    Maintain they say
    Ride the waves they say
    Optimism can be a curse
    12 whole years
    Yes that’s all I knew
    December 3rd ……2007
    Oh ya ……we no longer need you
    Trying to go to school

    Get my master degree
    But life was crashing down on me

    **** it …just fire me
    What happens now …..Have given them every piece of me
    How do I rebuild my life with only a piece of a person?
    Didn’t know that wouldn’t work
    Should have retrieved the pieces of me
    Give me that piece back
    Imagine that
    Being use to the chipping away at me
    Like ice
    So who will I allow to chip away at my piece of mind this time?
    This is who I am this is who I be
    I will be fine
    Never realizing what I felt inside

    So chip away
    Chip some more
    You chip twice you look pretty nice
    What……….you know I am here you to
    Sis, Cousin, Friend
    I help everyone else
    You see I forgot to help myself….
    Dropped out school
    There was not enough room for me in life….
    I know that sounds trife
    Quickly im breakin down
    Drinkin and smokin was what kept me on tha ground?
    Have sex with him in hope to get at least one piece of me back
    But lost 5 more pieces in 10 seconds flat….
    Watching kids
    Watching my life turn into theirs
    Not that im complainin
    Plus what was wrong that, there was just not enough room for me!!
    Started to feel crazy….. Am I comin or goin
    Snappin, Cussin
    My lil lady thought I was buggin
    “Mom mom lets play this game….”
    Sure sure just wait as I ran out tha door there’s a sick baby next door
    Then I gotta help that lady cross Tha Street and we have to help Kim make her life neat
    Sorry baby it’s just not enough room for us
    Didn’t realize the game I was playing
    Crazy, crazy, crazy was what I was become
    Until that day…. That sparks of change
    When I found myself, underneath everyone else’s mess
    When I found me there was nothing left
    How do I rebuild?
    Do I ask for my pieces back?
    Hey give me my chip pieces!!!..... That wouldn’t work
    So I ask my lil lady if she minded something new
    I told her I had to get me back and stop robbing you
    She lit up like a light iam have my mommy back…
    That was my conformation
    You see the pieces of me
    Was scatter all over the places
    So I decided to relocate
    Running from myself!!!!!!!!
    Some mite say
    I don’t think so
    Running to me
    the only way to save my faith
    The me I miss
    Its time get those new pieces
    Its time for someone to pick up my slack

    It time
    Its time to make room

    I don’t think so
    Running to me

    Its time get those new pieces
    Its time for someone to pick up my slack

    It time
    Its time to make room ​

    All I can say is.....WOW!


    I believe you spoke for all who are feeling torn apart with "pieces" of themselves scattered about.

    This was so very EXCELLENT! :terrific: and :great:

    My favorite part was this...



    Yes, YES!....A NEW you for YOU and for her!
