"Don't count the days, make the days count." Mohamed Ali

Life comes in threes
Once a man twice a child
If taken as a game
Your name will be out the hall of fame
With your head down, you swaggless
Wondering why you so lame
Unbutton shirt, silhouette rocking a Fubu kicks
Steps are carefully taken, now you doing the walk of shame
So disappointed, so…so disappointed
But who’s to blame??

The ball is in my court
It’s never too late to make a change
Yes we can, yes I can
The top is so lonely
There’s so much to learn
In such a hurry, in such a little time
Dark skin, milk chocolate
By the color of my skin am define.

I can’t give up now
I’ve come too far from where I started from
Such a rough road and it a’int getting no smoother
Help me God so I don’t swallow my pride with a cup of tea
