Comments about Beverly Smith
My son was born with intellect, wits and the power to think
As a little boy he’d been an achiever and never overlooked a blink
Now being a young male adult he’s lost some of his motivation to succeed
He’s made some mistakes that he is now paying for because he failed to lead
He experienced the pressure of his peers to try and fit in
But he’s finding out that this choice does not win you a friend
Others have criticized him because he did not listen
They’ve turned their backs and are accusing him now they are dissing
They fail to remember once upon a time ...
