And I, started from the, bottom
Like a, snowman, ground up
Like round chuck, and still put hands on you
Staying wound up is how I spend time
Sucker free, confidence high
Such a breeze when I pin rhymes
I just got the air about me
Like wind chimes (yeah)
Another day in the life (uh)
Used to have to scrape to get by (yeah)
Now my community is gated
And I made it, and my neighbors say hi (say hi)
I'm giving them pounds, I'm upscale now
Guess it means I'm way in the sky
But I still remember the days of, minimal wage for
General labor, welfare recipients is a minor
Look at how government assistance has made ya
Adversity, if at first if you don't succeed
Put your temper to more use 'cause being broke is a poor excuse
That shit only gives you more fuel
Show them why you're you
So close, God, it's like I almost got it
But close only counts in timebombs and horseshoes
So I uni-bomb shit (tick, tick, tick)
Screw it, I'm lit, and that attitude I blew up on quick
That's why they call me firecracker
I grew up on wick (wick, wick, wick) with a short fuse
I got some important news to report to
Anyone who thought I was done, nah, bitch, not quite
Spotlight's back on, got my faith, where's yours?
Do you still believe
Didn't I get everything I had to give you to make you see?
I'll never forget if you turn your back on me
Now and walk out I will never let you live it down
(I'll never quit) Do you still believe?
Can’t believe how much detail I can retain from my own dreams at times.
My aunt has been in the hospital since the 31st fighting for her life. It worried me so badly I was never gonna hear from her again and was willing to fly out to see her... but it turns out, miraculously, and my god did I pray, my aunt is getting better. I cried so much last night because when I didn’t hear news for a while, I assumed someone wasn’t ready to say the difficult words. I was hurting so bad, grieving.... thinking I’d never hear her voice again. When she’s better enough to be discharged from the hospital I’m gonna call her and tell her how much I love her and how I was so worried. Geez... I don’t wanna deal with tragedy again in less than a year...
Haha. I had this idea in mind. Character stuff! Well y’know, obviously there was a time before Kai got all tough and whatnot. I’d say badass, but she’s more modest than that. I wonder how it would look to see her in her younger years, pre training and training as Samurai, usually messing up and trying to be the person she is today. Hahaha would be amusing for sure! Little tiny Kai trying to keep up with the big dogs!
Almost considered giving up my dream in the infantry because I was at a low point in life and doubting myself, but the fact I held on still. Without completely giving up. I’m starting to get stronger mentally. Never give up on your dreams! 🔥💪
Distancing myself from people, I guess.
