It all worked out, despite the odds.
It’s on me to keep the good going.
A setback or two has no place in my mind
cuz I crush those with one hand now, without even trying.
The strength gained from it all isn’t seen on the physical,
Rather a strong mind, soul, my ‘guns’ are metaphysical –
I love the love that I have, it’s a skill
that’s built through the storms of life, even still,
I know our lives are a painting or a novel unfinished
as we look back on our bad times when we felt diminished;
But trust me, my guy, my ‘rock bottom’ is a flex
Cuz I know the grit and grime it took to manifest
The present, past, future that rises each morning,
Seven years later I’m not just flying, I’m soaring. – RSM
