"With man, this is impossible. With God, anything is possible."


I came home the first day
My dad was not thinking straight
He was talking about suicide
Said all he wanted to do was hang

Now I don't want to make this negative
So let's cut right to the chase
I came home the third day
They were staring me right in the face

They said they were splitting up
My life falling before my eyes
The next months were terrible
But she told me we were on the rise

The next years were better
We moved up from house to house
Swiping right on Tinder
My mom found her future spouse

Life’s pieces got aligned
My life flashed before my eyes
I'm sitting here reading this over
And I realize…

My life was bad
My life was good
I have a nice house
I’m not a “little mouse”

That’s what my dad called me
When he was feeling angry
But that didn’t affect me
When I was being lowkey

Now I'm sitting here, up top
Thinking on my good thoughts
Right now, I am not distraught
Because my big mind, it knows I fought.
