To all my lovelies. We are back and stronger than ever, life hit us hard (my content will show you what I mean), but we are here and we will not quit.
I started this journey thinking it would be fun,
Thinking I’d finally be able to finish the run.
But man, did life have other plans,
And let me tell you, Im not a fucking fan.
You might say, yeah ok, here we go,
But these last few years really did blow.
Hear me out,don’t discard me just yet,
I haven’t even started to put up the set.
So the show all started about four years ago,
When I knew once again, I had to let go.
Another fool who tried to play my heart,
But nah, I wasn’t willing to play that part.
And yeah it hurt,we always think we found the one, dont we.
Mmmmm! but that man, was not for me.
So broken hearted and stubborn,
I went back to the past,
But with the excuse I wanted to grow fast.
Enrolled in school to gain some higher power,
Maybe the past would see I could still be a flower.
A flower with thorns but a flower none the less,
Even if I didn’t pass test.
But what do you expect a 19 year old to do, when experience comes knocking at the door.
Theres no choice but to get on the floor
Begging on all fours.
And sure, yeah that’s not a pretty image,
But trust living it wasn’t no picnic.
I know you must say, “ yeah sure just another gimmick,”,
But you weren’t there to witness.
Nobody was, that’s the problem,
The stones were cast and all forgotten,
Yet there was my corpse starting to rotten.
Fast forward, somehow I picked myself up,
But in the back of my head I knew I’d fucked up.
So I did the right thing, rectified myself,
But in the end I could still feel all the stares.
And most of all, the deception in the air.
So I did the right thing, focused on my studies,
Until one day came along that sweet little buddy.
Distractions, distractions, that’s all that I got
Once again, almost lost my damn shot.
Refocused, re-evaluated when along came an angel,
My own personal Gabriel the Savior.
I cried and I shouted a big amen,
I had finally gotten my perfect ten.
