Decisions made, but not thought over.
You tell me I lost but deep down inside I’ve won.
Kicked, punched, dog bites, and spit on,
But I still stand tall, head up high with a smile on my face.
You took somebody that was a real close friend to me, my boy, and both of My brothers, but you still think you got me.
You try and put me down telling me what I did is illegal,
But just in case you don’t live in truth,
Recession is here and this is an illegal world.
I’ve lost everything and everyone but to those people who’ve never done Wrong, understand, I’ve never lost my faith & hope.
I learned that to be happy, is to be favored by luck or fortune.
But in my case to be happy is to be favored by God.
Dealing with life, I’ve been in an uncomfortable position for a long time,
But a wise man once told me “God will put you in an uncomfortable position Just to show he’s God”
So to those people that try and fault me for what I did, change towards me After you hear what I’ve done,
What do you see when you look at me?
Fire & fierce, or happiness & to be saved?
I’m a warrior, a fighter, a soldier, so when you meet me,
Meet the BLOOD that surrounds me.

A truly insightful, intelligent, and honest work of art. To the person who wrote this, if after all the "uncomfortable positions" you have the ability to share your feelings in this beautiful poem, you have a gift. Aim high and don't let the world get you down.

He is more focused on explaining his feelings/anger rather than getting across exactly why he is "Broken but Blessed"
