The Best Version Of Me

2023, Henery X ©

I’m crafty This is why the almighty twenty-six letters said it was a no brainer to draft me First round, first pick Because my way with words is so sick I put letters together So clever That my reign in this game will last forever My punchlines have been known to knock out Self-proclaimed competition no doubt Their conclusions Are left with contusions Now you overstand why what they speak about is just an illusion You know concussions are known to cause confusion They just be playing with a bunch of fancy words Unlike me, who believes quality over quantity should always be preferred This is why I say little, but it be doing a lot So I never have to scheme and plot On the jackpot Because my skills ensure it’s always earned See, my life lessons were well learned And this is why I graduated with a master’s degree In how to be the best version of me

My alma mater was books, a good library…. I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.-*Malcolm X

*Malcolm X was my number one means of motivation at the beginning of my self-discovery journey.

Reading is important, because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything.-Tomie dePaola

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
