Self-Motivation

Just sitting here, brainstorming, doing some heavy thinking

Looking back to the night my case happened when I was tweaking

I had many chances and I had multiple opportunities

There were many people in my lifetime who wanted the best for me

So why would you give that up, why wouldn’t you listen

Now you look like a real live dummy for not paying attention

This can stain you forever, this ain’t what you wanted to see

But believe one thing, you are not that monster they paint you to be

Some of the world will never in life look at you the same

As long as this is over your head you just have to maintain

You have to hope that one day somebody gives you another chance

That way you can show the world who you are when they glance.

Know in this life everything happens for a reason

You are a good loyal man that somebody will believe in

When you have God in your life you can never go wrong

And even though they claim you got a lot of time it won’t be long
