Before I make it
I want to say this
Before the day ends
And I get crowned a success
Before blessings come my way
This is a letter to my future man.
Don’t be too arrogant to learn
Coz its lessons that build a man,
And even then you have to yearn
To learn any way, you can.
Learn from people,
Learn from events,
Learn from mistakes,
Learn from history
So you know if you want to repeat the story.
Learn from stories,
Learn from poems of the old,
Then hold on to the lessons like gold
You need a shield even more now,
For this world is colder than cold
I know by now my plastered heart is almost crippled
But I beseech you friend,
Never give up on finding genuine love
Search the world
Never let that flame inside die
Love isn’t just a word
You deserve more, find more
Those who seek, find.
Remember you only live once
I pray you be kind
Enough to forgive those who hurt thee
Love is blind,
Don’t reprimand self for that choice you made
Instead, focus on what’s ahead
The old tears drain them in a box,
Shove them in a shelf
Love’s gonna grow once more,
Just like the rose that grew from concrete
You have always been a dreamer.
I hope you still dream big
You have always been a worker,
I hope you still work on dreams.
You’ve always had a feeling heart,
I hope those little things
Still touch you to the point of tears
You’ve always had your vision clear
I hope you see through
Beyond what you’ve got,
That is how the world sees you
Remember that the masses are often wrong.
