05 - One Too

Through my struggle I still rise, I’ve been doing it all my life

And though no one can beat time, I refuse to not fight

There’s a purpose to it all, where there’s darkness, there’s light

I am a difference maker, but not one of a kind

If I am the one…then you’re the one too


My life and time, expands with every scripted line

Details reveals more of my gifted mind, designed

To deal with my flaws, and humbly respect what makes me shine

Knowing I got more steps to climb, my rhymes

Far from stellar, but keeps getting better and better

As I drop jewels that should be treasured

My heart, too large to measure, my thoughts go in circles

Like a propeller, wanting to ring out like a Beretta

But I keep my cool, call me Mr. Freeze, I choose

Life tools to self teach as I bend the rules

Just enough so it don’t break as I make my move

And charge it on the same card I use to pay my dues

And sometimes, when I win, I still lose

‘Cause most cats aint on my level, easily they get their ego bruise

So retaliation is inevitable

But a better move is to learn to become a better you


Through my struggle I still rise, I’ve been doing it all my life

And though no one can beat time, I refuse to not fight

There’s a purpose to it all, where there’s darkness, there’s light

I am a difference maker, but not one of a kind

If I am the one…then you’re the one too


I’ve been beyond patient, changed my destination, though hesitant

For my development, I had to go switch up my resident

‘Cause it’s been evident, I touch lives like I was heaven sent

Even though a sinner, my positivity’s elegant

I know I’m not perfect, I’ve been known to let peeps down

But my intention’s always love, you can go ask around

For a while it seemed like hate was the only expression found

But I’ve never been into trends, so what I do, make most proud

I’ve done dirt, some lowdown, cause hurt, been called foul

But I’ve learned that wasn’t me and with time I learned how

To change my mindset for the best and still gaining wisdom

To make better decision with precision, sober living

It’s still a long road on a narrow path, I know

Others can change roles, so long as the goal that posed

Has those who provide positive reinforcement

Having people around you who care is so important

The road less travel is hard, stacked against the odds

Sacrifice is a must and hard choices leave most scared

Anything worth living for is never attained with ease

With the right team around you, anything can be achieved


Through my struggle I still rise, I’ve been doing it all my life

And though no one can beat time, I refuse to not fight

There’s a purpose to it all, where there’s darkness, there’s light

I am a difference maker, but not one of a kind

If I am the one…then you’re the one too
