Humble Yourself

 
Donít ever forget that you were there too
The world leaned its weight down on your back
Broke and struggling skipped hand and hand up and down your block on the regular
And how in the hell am I going to get through this was a song that your mind replayed over and over again
Regardless of how low your low was you were still at a place where you damn near lost your mind
You were no exception to the rules
That anxiety was locked and loaded and you had to figure out which step you would take that would not cause you to fall to your mental death
Donít ever forget that you were there too
That last time was not the last time even though it felt so good to proclaim that you were not going to do it ever again
That high that took you there was life and it had you by your throat and would not let you go
Temptation was everywhere you looked and you just could not resist it, especially when that get back card fell at your feet
Donít ever think that there is not at least one individual in this world that cannot recount those moments
That shed those same tears or can recount those same thoughts verbatim
Had to lean over and ask for assistance in their time of need
Or better yet bury their knees down into that cold hard floor and shamefully confess every last sin they had committed just so they could finally reach that peak that they knew would bring them closer to relief
Before there was a want there was that need, that determination to survive even if it was just the night, staring right at you in your face
Remember that moment when you realized that everybody was not your friend?
And you had to move with a purpose otherwise you knew that you would lose everything in an instant
Donít find yourself lacking in those areas that placed you upon that platform that you are currently on
Although it may look sturdy, cracks are always developing
And we all know once a crack develops if not fixed
It only gets bigger
