You Can

Kiss my ass i hope to fly 

My speck aint nuthin to that plank in your eye

Hold me down i just get higher 

Dead weight or spare tyre 

You dont write my story 

Youre just the obstacle that keeps em tuned in to my glory

The halo on my head is real 

I earned that shit

i traded in my Achilles heel 

Your words bounce off 

Like water beads off a duck

Because i made my own luck 

Lifted with the light of life 

Left my fate to the skies above

Justified 

I take my place

love you more as you love me less

In the good Lord my sins are confessed 

I still make mistakes and yeah ive got the tact of a crate 

God loves me anyway and that's just great 

like i said truth is king 

i do what i do in honour of Him 

And for that glory my heart will sing

most important is one thing 

i know you can 

And those who dont can kiss your ass 

I hope you fly 

Where your dreams are way up High.

You can.

Me Too

"...I've got the tact of a crate..." Actually, the tact of a splinter on the bottom of a crate. I was never properly socialized - which is why I'm odd and often mistaken in the intent behind what I say. I get questionalble looks and know I was being me again. I speak Port Huron English and that's my dialect and accent which may be the reason I am suspect. Most people speak colloqially and not in perfect English all the time. To be black in america and speak english well is suspect still. "Kiss my ass I hope to fly" attitude. I have to represent. :D

Lol I read this and light up

Lol I read this and light up with understanding and empathy. But right at this moment I almost have it all! But holidays are over and work shifts my gears alittle more faster, less me time. But to hell with those intent on finding negatives it's on them not me I deal my cards with honesty no matter the hand. I am not above criticisms or compliments but be who you are the rest can just gape ;D lol! I love who I am. I love who you are embrace!

I also hate commas. And filly

I also hate commas. And filly grammar when I'm writing thoughts. You're clever enough to get me though, I love that!

I Get You

because you are clear. U write - that's all. That is the entire point of writing, to simple say. You say complicated and convoluted concepts and amalgamize disparate entities exceptionally well. Insert envy here. I marvel at your mind. I wonder about mine. That said, as there is time, come home and just write down your mind - it rocks! - :D
