Changing Ways


No New Year’s resolution for me
No promises that my demons desist

Less time focusing on streets
More time focusing on degrees
Evaluate the benefits in me and
more time running in my cleats

Not so many people understand me
A few more just my family
Not so many people wanna help me
But I’m gonna focus on my health and wealth

Less running my mouth
More taking it down

Less running the streets
More running in cleats

Change after all… is good
Change after all
Is all I know
Gotta make
This time positive
Before it goes.



Nameless Angel,
it’s been 3 years since I been witchu
I remember them nights when I stepped
down and cried for you
you was only 13 and I was 14
you were too slow for those bullets
to miss you
lately I’ve been sleepin’
dreaming about you
and I ain’t talking about
those good times
I’m talking about July 27 when I saw
you on the floor bleedin’ your heart out
just to say I left that lifestyle go
but not sincerely
I did some hatred crimes so
I could feel you, bro
I’m silver lining just to feel
you again
we was once rivals but we’ve
become more than friends
and I sit here locked
wasting my time saying less
but this tag on me says
because I don’t know who I am…
without you nameless Angel
and sometimes I wonder
is Florida even
safe for me to be out there
being called a thug is not something
I wanna be called this year
Nameless Angel, hopefully later down
the line I’ll be able to see you
up there.

Dog Leash

Dog Leash

Dog leash
oh god, please help get these dang fleas
cause I’m stripped of my freedom
and I can’t speak
every time I try to bark
it’s like I’m make believe
they scream “SIT”
I follow
they scream “TALK”
I bark
short temper little dog
but my heart not small
I’ve been through hell and back
I mean look at my inside it
be nothing but straight black
I give you the puppy’s eye
so you could see through my
damn eyes
yeah, I know you don’t gotta
tell me though
my world is like a fallen
galaxy cause I can’t even
navigate through it
Oh god, please help me get these
dang fleas
cause I’m tired of being pulled
by this here leash….

Turn Back Time

Turn Back Time

If I could turn back time
Nine years ago
I would fix my thought process

If I could turn back time
To tell somebody I needed help
I wouldn't be writing this poem

If I could turn back time
To tell everyone the truth
I would be in a better position

If I could turn back time
To tell my mom I love her
I would do this in a heartbeat

Now read from bottom to top
And see what I would do now
If I could turn back time

Not Giving Up

I Made this Poem Because I Want to Let Everyone Know I’m Not Giving Up

It’s hard to get from here to there
If you never get out of bed
You lie a lot to fool your friends
But you fooled yourself instead.

It’s harder to get from here to there
If you set your goals too high
Then nothing ever works out right
Too soon you no longer try.

But the hardest way to get from here to there
Is when all you ever do
Is count up the years and miles to go
Then you’re through before you’re through

So how do you get from here to there
Well you first must believe you can
Let no one tell you differently
Its your life and its in your hands.

Then turn your dreams into your goals
And see what you need now
To satisfy the requirements:
The why, the where, and the how.

At first you’re overwhelmed, of course
There is so much you don’t know
But keep your faith, be strong and sure
For you do have a way to go.

Take careful steps and do them right
Take pride in each thing done
Don’t look to far ahead of yourself
Just that next step yet to come.

Before you know it you’ll be there, friend
Your dreams will then be real
And you’ll be standing where I am now
Telling others how good it feels.

You’ll tell them not to quit themselves
To have faith, though it’s hard to bear
So they will know it can be done
They, too, can get from here to there.
