Letting go of the wants to make room for my needs, watching every move that I make that could plant a seed, mistaken my kindness as weakness so I’m removing my deeds, faking that you spiritual cause you do a couple of reads.

Gave you the best of me but…

You have to prepare yourself for everything. At any given time someone can betray you and what you do with that betrayal will be what defines you. Learn to let go of what you’re afraid to lose.

Unfortunately they will always hold you accountable for the treacherous conditions they put…

You spent all that time in the library but still have yet to learn not to judge a book by its cover. I’m slicing every “frenemy” that was a friend to me till my enemies are no longer one another..

Found myself stuck in gaze, heart racing through a maze…

Dear Kobe it’s been a full year since you passed and honestly it still feels so surreal. My grind, my competitiveness, my passion came from watching you devote your life to your craft. The countless hours, the precision and focus, the sacrifices. You embodied more than the average and you worked as if you weren’t one of the elites. Your very words helped me in my darkest hour. You inspired me to give my all and never feel ashamed for doing so. To always do what I love, and love what I do. Finding the solution within the struggle and grasping knowledge from all aspects of life. Unfortunately your life was cut short at out expense, but God had other plans for you. Thank you for everything you left behind to us all and I pray that we can become the greatest version of ourselves as you did!

It could have all been so simple, but I didn’t play my cards right. Put to much pressure on the situation now it’s choking… it’s feeling tight.

Can’t lose my grip, I’m holding onto my vision. I’m shooting all these shots but when it comes to you I’m always missing.

Me to Me

Remain strong because the pain is not meant to last. Remain strong even though what you thought would be your future is now your past. You’ve endured…
