Lake mirror a Friday night with a couple friends
A few things on my mind that I probably shouldn’t send
Or put into a text just wait till I see that person and
Tell em how I feel but anxiety gets the best and then it’s down hill I think I need some time to grow
I need to find some hope I lost myself I know you probably know
And I noticed that I can’t please the world
I’ve been a lair yes, but now I cherish my girl
The simple things she cooks and cleans looks at me like a king
right in front of me but I was blind by a couple things
And please I know I can’t afford to buy diamond rings
Or something I could give to show you how much you mean to me
And lately funds have been tight and I have been high
Tryna smoke the pain away light it just to get by
I see the insecurity’s youve been keepin inside
I know it’s hard right now but our blessings come with some time
I’ll roll my sleeves up and wipe the tears from your eyes
let’s forget about it, I’ll pour us a glass of wine
This album is a story I’m really speaking my mind
care less about opinions and more about peace of mind
Hold up... (I think I might fall of the cliff)
This album is a story I’m really speaking my mind
care less about opinions and more about peace of mind
And with that being said allow me to apologize
To anyone I’ve hurt with my childish mind of mine
Life is just a journey see a mountain that I’ve got to climb
Ups and downs twists and turns I got you that’s the bottom line
But did you see how the early days were beautiful
Coloring books, family trips, and music got me through
Drawing pictures on foggy glass down different avenues
Mornings you would take me to school and listen to the news
I miss those days I can’t forget those days
But how could I
I miss the holidays the family’d get together for a cook out
Stuff I took for granted what I loss I know I missed out
I think I might fall off the cliff
This album is a story I'm really speaking my mind
Care less about opinions and more about peace of mind
So why don't you take weight up off your shoulders
Seconds, minutes, hours I told you were getting older
In that little basket there's medicine that I rolled up
Lets cherish little moments we have before they're over
I know I got some healing to do before I'm sober
But ima take a step at a time before you know it
Ima bounce back work on my health I know they doubt that
But thankfully I'm living for me, I used to fight that
Worried bout pleasing my peers I took a step back
Noticed I was losing myself, I mean.. I thought I might fall off the cliff
Having Suicidal thoughts, I wouldn't make up this shit
Was neglecting those around me I'm ashamed I admit
But I'm working on myself, I'll find a way out this bitch
I ain't asking for attention or a listen on this
I'm just sharing my emotions fore' I fall off the cliff


Falling off the cliff is a metaphor for dying by my own hand. I’m in a much better place now mentally. I wrote this in a darker time of my life. Any feedback is appreciate but not necessary. Just posting to build my catalog.

I read this and it was a pretty cool read. The flow and the structure of it is not bad. There's probably someone who could relate to a thing or two you said here and that's always a plus for pieces like this. This has some good wit. I think you have something here.
