Look Before You Leap
Look before you leap
That's what my mother used to say to me
Like a child who knew everything, I acted un-interested in her wisdom and words of advice
Until I hit the streets of what they call REAL LIFE.
All the wisdom and lessons they used to teach I never applied until I had to
LOOK BEFORE I LEAPED,
the men, the friends, and the ever so harsh streets
can teach you the same tricks if only you
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP
so now I am at a crossroads and there are no bridges or mountains to leap
only the black pavement and the desire to wish I had somewhere to
LOOK BEFORE I LEAPED
