I begin this with the hopes that you
Hear me, with no prejudice close your eyes so you can see clearly.
I am what I decide to be
Will my words Be tamed
This is as it is written it will long remain
Tears, fear for myself for those I consider dear
Hope you can comprehend me
Yes I’ve strayed but only my god can condemn me.
This is my time I tell you
The prodigal son is here.
I cried, I tried, refuse to let my fury subside
I fight and percevere.
I made my pressence known
Nobody believed in my eventual rise
While I spoke of it most made me a rumor
Turned me into a lie
Little do you realize that only ignites my
Will to survive
After the flames have consumed all that’s left is ashes
But out of ashes I rise
