Family Proud

Blowin' Cannabis clouds
i let my family down
gone away are the days
I was the family clown
Long for the day
when they can say
I make my family proud.

Feel like they weren't there back then
but i need my family now
i need my family now
If it comes down to it,
Bleed for my family proud
What do you think of me now?

Probably askin' yourself how
I can go from the lame
all the way to main
through all the pain
I ain't crack and melt down.
can't even back myself now

I gotta maintain
steady fuelin' my flame
so I can refrain & drain
my brain of self doubt
can't trust no one else to do it
gotta help myself out

Blind from the rage, i'm in a cage
I gotta get myself out, so I can let myself see
I'm in a mental prison, only I got the key
to set myself free
Let myself be the me that I can be
when I turn the me into we!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
