Reaching for Greatness

Reaching for Greatness


The time has come for me to rise,

Born from pain to make me wise,


The will to elevate before I die,

Cannot be answered when you ask why,


The lies and cries that you oblige,

Negate the love for which I complied,


Sordid thoughts sift through my mind,

Frozen within our place and time,


The time has come, this I know,

As sure as a cut and the blood let flow,


Yet, before I go and leave this world,

I’ll fix what was curled and left unfurled,


There is much to mend, our broken days,

There is more to heal, our fallen ways,


The time has come and in this writing,

I send my wisdom to do the fighting.
