Yeah my credit's bad
But I'm not sitting around thinking about the things that I've never had
Instead I'm taking the time to stop and smell the flowers And feeling the overwhelming power
Of that wonderful fragrance
And try to describe it with beautiful language
But I cannot paint a perfect picture because I don't have the pallette
I lack the lyrical talent
To translate it properly
So I just have to offer the
Inspiration
It's instilled
It makes me think about how I build
And how my life's been filled
With magical moments
And spectacular notions
That just doing is succeeding
And chewing on the seedling
Will cause the roots to grow
No matter how slow
Eventually I know
That the roots will grow
And the buds will show
Until they bloom
And I don't want it to happen with the zoom
Of a high speed jet
Because I don't want my journey to end yet
So I go for a slow drive
Until I arrive
At a point of interest
Looking out the windows as I ingest
Everything I'm passing
Spending time laughing
Until I arrive at the next stop
Of the journey of more than just hip hop
I get out of my car and walk for a while
And I just sit with a smile

chorus: I have been blessed to be the places I have been
I have no less than the memories in
The depths of my mind and the width of my grin
As I let the rest of the record just spin

There's a little girl picking pedals
More precious than metals
She has a flower in her hair
And the cutest little pair
Of sandals
And more roses than she can handle
The moment watching the girl
Was a momentary glimpse into someone else's world
But it makes me think about my own
And how I've grown
Through my experiences
And how sincerely this is
An expression
Of reflection
I've met so many people in my travels
From people wearing winter boots to people sporting sandals
In December
There are moments I'll always remember
And some I won't recall
At all
Until someone sparks my memory
Either way I will forever be
Grateful for everything
Both the pain and joy it brings
By providing a contrast
I will make it all last
As long as I can
From the moment I was born to right now as a man
And every moment along the rest of the way
Because I have been blessed today

chorus:
