Life Lessons

Life Lessons

A Poem by Kelly Alyce

All of the mistakes caused you to change places

Searching for "love" but never patient

Guarded your heart; locked up in bars

Stood your ground and they shot off like a star

Finding a reason to be someone's forever

Realizing reality and committment taught better

Roles reversed; real friends protect you from harm and keep ya heart warm

Others show "love" when you're drastically hurt or rolling 'round in a hearse

Had to realize that you come first!

Questions may be why you stressin'

What seems like a loss can be a blessin'

Dealing with fakes, make you see the reverend

Do you wrong, hoping all dogs go to heaven

Shaken, beaten, and pressin' tryna figure out these life lessons

Rollin' round the city with the crew

With those special people, y'all will never lose

Building each other up right, leaves the enemy confused

Movin' to greater things can feel uncomfortable

Said you've flexed without yo weapon 01/27

Talk to God yet go to man for confession

02/03 Tired of living a lie and on a quest for liberty

Enamored by your carnality kept your soul without ease and peace

So deep in the game, you continued to run tha streetz hoping the pain will cease


Questions may be why you stressin'

What seems like a loss can be a blessin'

Dealing with fakes, make you see the reverend

Do you wrong, hoping all dogs go to heaven

Shaken, beaten, and pressin' tryna figure out these life lessons
