06 - My Journey

New York, forever home, my place of birth

My first breathe I inhale began my gift and my curse

Smith Pjs, L.E.S. home of some the worst

Take everything your worth then lay you up in the hearse

And it hurts to see young ones go and lose that shine

Decisions carry consequences but some caught in the line

Wrong place, wrong time, his face looks like mines

Yo, that could have been me, so I took it as a sign

Man, I stayed humble, learn to mind my own business

I did a lot of dumb things, but with very few to witness

The path that I was walking filled with dead ends and snitches

It’s a very thin line between freedom and jail visits

And when I lost control, I almost lost my soul

I had to take a longer look at a few different road

I love you New York, but I really gotta go right now

I was meant for better things, I’ll be gone for a while


This life I live I claim as my own

I’m a man full grown, I know my right from my wrong

I got people who support, but this path, I walk alone

Everyone has story and this is my journey

This life I live I claim as my truths

Every thought, every move, design to be my living proof

Through the good, bad and ugly is a lesson for the youth

Everyone has a story and this is my journey


The fight for survival is constant

I had to learn that I wasted so much time with all the nonsense

So I moved away to a new state with the fam

Here is where I would grow to become the man that I am

MD shaped how my pen game grew

Developed my style that revolved around to spit nothing but the truth

Always me and bro, time to gather up some troops

As the fog of war clears, I’m introduced to new peers

Some became brothers, found real love to share

A new path appeared, a new chance is here

It felt great to finally have that light in my life

Made her my wife, had our ups and downs but the ride was nice

But after 12 years, she veered left as I took that right

My sunny days turned back into pitch black nights

Had to accept that L, as I lost that fight

I still learned from it but the pain feels permanent


This life I live I claim as my own

I’m a man full grown, I know my right from my wrong

I got people who support, but this path, I walk alone

Everyone has story and this is my journey

This life I live I claim as my truths

Every thought, every move, design to be my living proof

Through the good, bad and ugly is a lesson for the youth

Everyone has a story and this is my journey


Your ever felt like you was winning or you won

Then in a blink of an eye, you find yourself right back at lvl one

Soul crushing, when I look in the mirror, feel so disgusted

Knowing that I couldn’t cut the mustard

I went to a deeper shell, my little own private hell

Used my room as a cell, as I belittled myself

Once again, just a failure, achieving the least

Took a while to forgive myself, and felt I deserved peace

The path I took, I left it all behind

To see the other side, I had a mountain to climb

And found myself in the mile high, give hope another try

The thing about life, you’ll keep learning lessons until you die

Hoping the bad doesn’t become redundant

And this new road that I walk will lead up to something

I know I’m not here for nothing, so I take it all in stride, day by day

Learn to appreciate what I got and hope to never complain


This life I live I claim as my own

I’m a man full grown, I know my right from my wrong

I got people who support, but this path, I walk alone

Everyone has story and this is my journey

This life I live I claim as my truths

Every thought, every move, design to be my living proof

Through the good, bad and ugly is a lesson for the youth

Everyone has a story and this is my journey
