New Years Resolution (Poem)

I don’t know what 2019 holds but I hope it’s blessings

Lord knows I been through enough stressing

I just hope I see many blessings

But if there is nothing already set then I’m going to work till I get mine

Spent too much time waiting on the sideline

For a time that the little arm never touched

Spent too many years relying on people to be my judge

Had me looking like a cripple with no crutch

Just falling off my game

Some days I just wish it didn’t take this long for me to learn my lesson

But I guess it all comes with time

I just been trying to grind

But some days it just feel like I’m scared to shine

Always been the type to be quiet until someone approaches me

My comfort zone is something I just need to leave

I know I can make it if I just put the work in and believe

But comfort is the thing that can’t be in my life right now

The things that I create i already know I can stand out

But then again I’m just one of the many artist in the crowd

And I’m not shit until I step on the stage and speak out loud

Always been the type of kid to be in the crowd

Not the one to be standing on stage

My New Years resolution is to perform
