See, I had some cleaning up to do today, I had a whole bunch of clutter, Busy getting in my way. As I took to the task, with no one to ask, I stepped into the maze of my life, I did some cleaning-up today.
I opened sealed boxes, used what was good, Lifted & inspected everything I had under the hood.No more burdens, stresses, and strains. No more out running myself and pressuring my brain.
Unlike or like some, I came from a poor, lost, ill-fated sect, Born was I, with feet on my neck. Used & abused, silenced in so many ways, Gone was my innocence, never a game to be played.
Taught no value of my body, soul, and head, A child, oh so young, yet part of the living dead.
I no longer look at the loss, The sacrifices, the cost. Instead, now I laugh and find the joys in things, Oh, I’m so appreciative of all my blessings.
Cause, see, I had some cleaning up to do today. I had to go through the labyrinth of my life, to find my way. Life will have tears, pains, disappointments ahead, But once you have life, lol, Baby, you ain’t dead!
I got down & dirty, stepped deep in the grease, I rose; clean, grounded and realized I needed more than just peace. So, I did some cleaning up today, I found a way to be set free. I did some cleaning-up today…
The cleaning within Me.
