For a long time I've been writing
However, it's only been recently
That I've started sharing it publicly
It's not grammatically or politically correct
Nor do I want it to be
I like it raw 'n real
I've ignored many words that were in my head
Plenty, never made it to my computer screen
Now, when I feel the words come, I write
In some cases, my words are very specific
To the life experiences I'm currently involved in
Some pieces I've written in less than 5 minutes
Others over a period of time
If we've shared time, space & lasting memories
I've written about it, I guarantee you
If you're someone very special to me
The words just don't stop
They're cryptic clarity of my thoughts & feelings
Not for the entire world
But just for you & me
I'll never forget one particular piece I wrote
Or the man I was writing about
It was literally written while he sat beside me
Shirtless & homeless
On the #35 Jane Street bus
Headed north to Jane & Finch
And struggling to survive
In the concrete jungle; the city we call home
I was reminded by his presence
And how truly blessed I am
Although the reminders are not always pleasant
I'm grateful for them on days
When I'm at my lowest
For they reset my gratitude adjustment level
