Imangining what my future holds
will I be an uneducated kid
from the deep Delta South
stuggling trying to find the easy way out.
I hope not.
People dwell on the manner of how
they imagine their lives
could have been
Should have went to school
Should have surrounded myself with the
good crowd of smart kids
Now I see their lives are bad now
I witnessed the best of them
crumble, dragged to the circle
Senior , had straight A's
could have attended school wherever she wanted
Week before graduation her mother died ohh that
devastating news killed her pride
made a deep wound inside of her heart
While along her mother transitioning to a better life
The pain she was enduring was because
of the physical lost of her beloved mother.
Only effort she can do to try to heal her pain
was to indulge by reminiscence about the
great times her and her mother shared.
Even doing that could not heal half the pain she was feeling.
I couldn't imagine my mother not being there for me
sitting at the bleachers cheering me on
awhile I recieved my diploma turning my tassle.
Years passed by I seen her life go downhill.
She had a bright future ahead of her
College , Job at law firm, she even told me
she wanted a family
That sistuation inverted her life
put her through the tunnels of hell and wrongfulness
Now trying to reconstruct the mishaps of her past
She's been clean for 3 years applying to go back to school
She's one of the individuals I admire
Through all the obstacles and milestones she faced
she was able to persevere through all the evil life throwed at her.
As I recall I witnessed the best of them crumble
heading to the circle of disappointment
But very few got up and fixed their mistakes. \
Still Day Dreaming
I hope life treats me swell
Not saying I want a perfect life
Im going to make mistakes
God knows I will
If I do so happen to crumble, stumble
fall into the wilderness of life's heaviest blows
I hope God provides me guidence with his holy words
Still dumb learning
and experincing life as it goes by
wondering how life will provoke me
allure me into the things that are not me
Whatever life has in store for me I hope its ready
To get dealt with my strongest right hooks
AS THIS STRONG MINDED SOUL REACHES HER
DREAMS WITH A LIFE OF FULL LASTING LONGEVIVITY !
