Poet's Notes about The Poem

How should I say
That I wasn't the one to blame
For all the madness, the bullshit that's happening
I tried to play by the rules
But that shit didn't count
You wanted me to move faster, so inpatient

You rushing me to be on top
But you not ready
Maby you thought that I was the lame
So you tried to play me
Can you help me understand
Why I keep losing
All I know is that this year was a disaster

You tried to run my life
So I could have a story to tell
So listen up
I'm gunna be the greatest man ever lived
I'm gunna rise above the broken
I'm gunna live like a king
You gunna wish one day that you were
Just like me

The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
