I know firsthand
what feeling like a failure feels like.
The world was mine to conquer.
Yet, I didn’t make it past a certain point.
No matter what I did.
I never accomplished
the level of education or success
I’d always intended on achieving.
I’ve been everywhere and back
except where I wanted to be in life.
The American Dream was my theme song.
Yet, I’ve never come close to rocking that beat.
But I’m not mad.
I’m thankful I got rerouted.
God saved me from myself.
Without Him, I would’ve surely been lost.
