Giving It To You Straight
The man I was is not the man I am now,
I have to give it to you straight,
because I’ve had many flaws.
I share with you this message,
it's not clear what I seek,
writing brings me joy,
an outlet where I find peace.
I don’t look at my brother,
and I don’t cast blame on you,
my experiences are what they are,
I take full responsibility for what I do.
Here within I paint a picture,
of a path that one may choose,
to alert you of pitfalls of my life in full review.
Everyone can’t be a Jordan,
they sure can’t be an Ali,
not even a Maya Angelou,
take advantage of whatever it is,
to just create the best in you.
