Second Chance

I WAS VERY UNFORTUNATE, I COULD BARELY STAND ON MY OWN TWO FEET
HUSTLING DOLLAR AFTER DOLLAR
TRYING TO SURVIVE IN THESE STREETS
TO ME LIFE WAS FULL OF BROKEN DREAMS AND HEARTACHES
SO TO HEAL THOSE HEARTACHES A BROTHER TURNED TO WEED AND ALCOHOL
BUT THROUGH IT ALL I WAS BORN INTO A WORLD FULL OF DRUGS AND ABUSE SO I HAD AN EXCUSE TO DO THE THINGS THAT I DID
SELLING DOPE ON THE STREET SO MY SISTERS COULD EAT WAS NO JOKE
ALWAYS INTO FIGHTS AND I COULD STILL HEAR THE GUNSHOTS AND SMELL THE GUN SMOKE IN THE AIR,
BUT NOT TO GET TOO DEEP INTO MY LIFE STORY I AM HERE TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE GLORY THROUGH IT ALL
YEAH I MADE IT I AM HERE I AM STILL STANDING WITHOUT NO FEAR
AND I REALIZE TODAY I AM TRULY BLESSED TO BE HERE IN FRONT OF YOU ALL
BECAUSE THROUGH IT ALL GOD WAS WITH ME AND IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO SEE THAT
BUT NOW I SEE THAT IAM A BETTER PERSON THAN I WAS BEFORE
AND I AM THANKFUL FOR THE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVED IN ME WHEN I DIDN’T BELIEVE IN MYSELF ANYMORE
SO I AM FORTUNATE TO SEE BETTER
BE BETTER,EAT SLEEP AND LIVE BETTER
AND DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO LIVE RIGHT
MAKE A CHANGE AND MAKE PROGRESS IN MY SUCCESS
BECAUSE MY PAST WILL NEVER LAST
AND I WILL KEEP MOVING FORWARD, THANKING GOD EACH DAY FOR OPENING MY EYES AND GIVING ME A SECOND CHANCE.
