So it's been years since i've written anything and this is just something i threw together today. Writing has always help me cope with hard times. This is me pouring out my heart after my girlfriend left me and our son. I am now a single father of a 4 year old boy at the age of 21.

It always seems like i'm a milli behind,
talk is cheap but no one wants these 2 cents of mine,
and you can't even pick up the fuckin phone anymore,
it'd be easy to forget you and just call you a whore,
but, what do i tell our son when he's asking for his mama?
that we're weren't good enough and everything just leads to drama?
do i tell him the truth or do i spare him the trauma?
make me out to be the bad guy, bitch, you're no dalai lama
 
Your family uses extortion, to get a hold of my kid
5 years ago abortion, is what they saw fit
all these years have past, i'm done holding it in
trying to be a man but i'm still just a kid
 
it always seems like i'm a milli behind, 
talk is cheap, and we're both running out of time
i've been on the verge of crumblin, but this life is mine
for the sake of my son, i'm steerin clear of the crime
i climbed out of hell, so burnt you can't recognize
all the shit we've been through, why can't you look me in the eyes?
trying not to fail, no, not gunna happen this time
on a lonely trail, but fuck it, you gotta grind to shine
