    Got a Story

    I know how it feels to be alone
    I know how it feels to put hands on the phone
    Insecure heart in need of security
    Asking questions like, “is anyone feeling me?”
    Is everybody ballin, money pourin in?
    Is everybody an angel while u dwell in sin?
    Affectionate other, is it still inside?
    Driver, no longer the passenger in the ride

    I know how it feels to feel so many bills
    I know how it is to drive and oil leaks like spills
    Lose sleep over papers that not even tested
    Cats only want you cuz you big breasted
    Stocks overdue, body feels like the reaper man
    Times running out, here comes the repo man
    To go the mall, look at an outfit, patches in ya jeans
    They didn’t fit, cuz of tight seams

    I know how it feels to have an agenda
    I know how it is to look back and remember
    Before when you were happy and full inside
    So many options you must a tried
    Hold ya head, keep you shoulders square
    You can’t see, but he’ll be there
    When you at ya least, friends done all they can
    Not seen in the physical, it’s that man

    And what a true story it is. When you're at your lowest, there is one who will always lend a hand, lest we forget. This was wonderful.
