I did everything

they asked of me

& still it wasn’t enough

so I swung out on my own

trying to find a way to better

& of course that wasn’t right

but you know if all you give

a man is nothing

that all stacks up real quick

finding my own way was a struggle

& many ways in that cold beginning

I didn’t get much of anything right

but all I had to answer to was me

over time if slow I got smarter

I could sleep a lonely long night

then finding people who recognize

that trying to do something

because you believe in what you do

can create your own family of care

builds your only circle tight

& still my founders look on

mumbling slow

shaking their heads

that boy ain’t right…
