A flipped out trip that tripped into a flip then the truth arises, so here comes the surprises.

Some people try accuse me of trying to teach lessons,
the truth is lessons taught me.
They flow out my skin,
because they prevented me from committing further sin.
Now they flow through my write,
and invade my entire site,
because I never want to forget,
the valuable things that help make me legit.

Every since I was knee high to a nail,
my life was on its way to fail.
I had no father or parental guidance at all,
so in this life I was doomed to fall.
As I write this recall,
I do recall,
How I prevented my fall.

The tears in my eyes,
come as no surprise.
The agony of defeat,
I did not meet.
I survived to be the person I am regardless,
and no one can accuse me of being heartless.

The truth about lessons by anybody,
is that if you want to help somebody,
You better be able to help yourself.

This I've done,
I've helped the most important one.
No Brag,
just fact.

To get off the bottle.
To leave those drugs alone.
To Stay out of trouble.
To stay employed.

I'd say I helped myself pretty good,
so I'll just knock on wood.

My writing comes from my heart and soul,
burned in lessons that helped me mold.

No brag,

Just a matter of fact!

If they're viewed as lessons,
Well lets just get the turkey and dressings.


because I'm still living.

No Grady, you are not preaching. You are simply trying to pass on your experience by writing wonderful poems. Everybody should listen to your advise.

Life is a series of learning experience. It will never end for as long as one lives.
The old can learn from the young,
and the young can learn from the old. Foolish are the ones who think they know everything already,
and will not learn.

You were teaching lessons. You were just writing. People read what you write and absorb what's needed to absorbed.
