let alone be famous
You may not make the trending topics
or the list of the greatest Men
but you are my foundation.
You sacrificed a whole lot
to let me build upon.
Even when juvenile delinquency
consumed my tender existence
still, like a shepherd
You found a way to lead me home
to safety, where I should be.
Now I’m grown
to see and understand
as much as I’ve grown
to discover my pots of gold.
All I can say is
I’ll invest each ounce
Until I become
the wealthy famous Man
that makes the trending topics;
one of the greatest to have lived;
My only prayer is you live to witness
while I watch the smile on your face.
