I'll Be Dammed
By Nate Spears 


My birth arrived from a place 
Where the sun didn't always shine
Neighbors borrowed everything
From Kool-aid to Good Times
 Dirt trail tales
Sand lot fields,
Sores filled my legs 
From playing out here

 
Diamonds in the rough
Times were tough 
If you didn't play right
They whipped your butt
But,
Under the hood lies a motor
Furious when crunk 
Hit the gas and excel
Use it to drive to the top
 Elevate with purpose, 
Achieving is certain
I'll be dammed if I let the hood
Be my disconnect button.
