WOULD NEVER HAVE WOKE-UP

This feeling of something wrong did not come overnight
For years, I turned a “blinded-eye” to things around me
With a real non-caring sense of what was wrong and right
The bad things I was doing, the good in me I could not see
Devil lead me down paths I would prefer no child to travel
It definitely is not always drugs or guns that destroys a life
Back then, I traveled a road not of concrete but soft gravel
My life was truly filled with an abundance of toils and strife
Without parents and communities to offer support and guidance
It is all but impossible for children to travel roads to success
For me, day after day, my life was in a long tunnel of subsidence
Love and caring from strangers helped me to do my very best
Thanks to caring strangers, my life took a new sense of direction
I began to see the World with a much clearer understanding
Instead of creating destruction I began offering others protection
Gradually positive things within myself I started commanding
Never would I thought positive of myself were I not taught how
If no one cares about you, it is not possible to care about yourself
For some reason all things good in the World you tend to disavow
Strangers and positive relationships gave me confidence in myself
Once I saw things clearly, I knew our children were in big trouble
More than that, I could see and understand the reasons they were
They were being intentionally place inside this destructive bubble
A bubble where nothing positive with their little lives could occur
God made it clear to me that my experiences had been for a reason
To get a message out to adults that they we are failing our children
What we are not doing for our children can be defined as desertion
On adults for love, support and direction is whom children depend
Until I met adults in my travels that cared, I too was in that bubble
Loving adults can take children from a very filthy to a very clean cup
Adults stop procrastinating; children need us to get them out of trouble
Were it not for positive minded adults, “I Would Never Have Woke Up”
