Story Of Will Poem by Ben Akinpelumi

Story Of Will

Rating: 5.0

We're from here
A small town somewhere
The same burdens we all bare
But how the government
views this is unclear
Before you pull out your brooms and umbrella,
I'll pause there
Aw yeah,
All fair So me and my friends
have dreams and mine
just happens to be Poetry
Not much gives me
greater joy than to write
create and have my friends pull up envy
sometimes I look to them
and say, we just gotta
let the ink sink in Cause I got no CV,
no LinkedIn.
And I'm not done with schooling, no
afters, no masters.
That's not the story,
I want
so I just pray certain things come faster
But we're okay,
we're comfortable, we're grateful
We know we're blessed to
even be here,
God has been faithful So I'm still playing
these beats writing dreams down
Thinking on how everything seems now
Today I went to the movies
alone and no one bothered me
One guy said what's up but couldn't remember
where he had seen or heard of me
Do I want to be the guy who can't
walk through the mall?
Or the guy who spends
no time with his family at all Is it all worth killing
for or do we just try? Cause truth is some
people just die
And I don't want to
look back when I'm 70
and just be some guy And when I share my story let the
be how and not why
The future is the
past you can change to me So if you
could decide the story you want to
tell at dinner
20 years from today,
what's it gonna be
So we could sit here tonight and pave it
out Or we could hit the
strip club and wave it out
Go out tonight and
have a great time
Good music, pretty women
and great wine And the journey back to the car
we could barely walk a straight line And
we can't tell if the girls
are pretty cause after 2 or 3
shots all women stay fine
So the girls dishing out lies and we laughing at the taste
Cause if I hit it and my man hit it, we call
that girl a brace
Aw pardon me for talking like a waste
But truth is,
I pray to be blessed to help and provide for someone And to be a guide for someone
Cause some people don't need much
Some people just need lunch We're
from here
Give someone a hand today
Live out a story you'll be proud to say Cause if I bring happiness to a few
And you do the exact same too
There's no telling what we could do
We're from here
