Life’s Opportunity

Look at me
Cus I speak street
To fit in with the rest
I wear baggy clothes
To hide the figure I despise
Once a young girl
With a bright future
Now a lonely soul
In search of a destiny

I made out with opportunities
But was scared to go to second base
It grabbed me by my hands
But I choose to stay in the same place
The rest sunk in to joy
I was left with that sad expression on my face

There’s no love to give
A beggar on the street
Try to hide the hunger I feel
No thought for food
But thoughts of belonging
Runs wild through my brain

Cus life’s got tighter then a shoe lace
I lower my gaze
Never lifting my eyelids
Have to ease my pain
Cus am a challenged individual
Bullied to the core
Lost the one
Father and friend
Aint got no more

So I introduced my self to purple haze
It calmed down my pain after each blaze
Combining cocaine
AKA the snow flakes
Fell in love with the clarity it creates
Only if I knew the amount of things it breaks
The amount of things it takes away
The restrictions it puts on the words you wanted to but couldn’t say

Am weak in the eyes
Strong in my walk
Pain in my soul
Strength in my pose
Hate in my head
Love in my heart

But I’ve finally I found the rope
That pulled me out of the gutter
The one prayer
That finally allowed me to breath
And took me away from suffering

I’ve lost all I can
Too weak to talk and ask
Haters everywhere and all around
Pointy and a judge
Stare me in the eye now
And you’ll see the real me
Picky and holier than thou
Point your finger at me now
Shout and scream now
Paint and referee now
The hate that you have
But be reassured now
Ama beat it like a boxer
Run like a runner
And like a mermaid in an open sea
Swim through you haters

All of this hope appeared
The moment I told myself don’t bother
Happiness became my friend
Motivation held my hand
And raised me to the top
And gave me support when I thought I was going to drop
Believing in my self is something I will never stop.

Cus am on ma own now
I was born a champion!
Ama do it n get through it
Aint gonna be a failure now
But a success!!
You gotta lose a part of you
To find your whole self
Forget the glasses
Look beneath it
Never a follower
But a leader
Cus god makes no mistakes
I was born this way
A champion!!
A success
Determination is ma name
So watch my back
As I leave this stage!
