I Want (Poem)

One day I want someone to say because of you I didn’t quit

People of all ages to look up to me

Understand I put my passion and pain into this

This is more than just words to me

I don’t do this so I can eat

I don’t just do this to put other artists on their knees

When they bow to me

I just want people to see what I see

Listen to the word’s that are coming through my teeth

Show the fam that I’m more than a body laced in a pair of cleats

I want to inspire generations

You can have all the fancy whips

You can chase the famous chicks

You can have the big cribs

I just want my message to hit

I want you to hear my story

I hope I live past forty

The ratio of a young male living past twenty is insane

The number grows each date it’s hard to stay sane

I just keep my head down and my eyes in the game

I write my wrongs and my pain

To inspire others

I want my Spoken Word to be top of the charts

I want people to truly love my art

I want to be legendary like Mozart

80 years from now I want you still to be listening to Me

When kids check their history books they see me

I want to take care of everyone who been at my side since day one

I’m going to do this till I die

I was Once a prisoner in my mind

Felt like I didn’t have any more to do in this lifetime

But my time had just begun

I do this for the fans

Coming out Maryland

The family had other plans

Change their plans

Now they with My plans

This poetry really changed me

I now know I can never accept defeat

I haven’t dropped a project in a year

I guess I’m showing I could still do this Spoken Word thang

My Mind too sharp like vangs

I knew I had this in my veins

I hope I make it

If I don’t I’m going to work till I do

Use to be a nobody

Now people care about me

Made this to show there’s no stopping me

I just want to be the greatest

I just want to be the greatest I can be
