They say I got my own style.
I say it's because I been crawling for miles.
Life's ups and downs has made me so versatile.
I'm trying to stay sharp using my mistakes like a file.
I know the way that I write is not really ideal.
So I just write what I want and however I feel.
And with nothing to lose everything I write is for real.
If there's anything left you can just send me a bill.
I'm broke but l know how to bend.
And I've learned that trust is earned so I only kept one friend.
I write every poemsic on my phone so I don't have a pen.
I have no room for drama so when it comes my way I mark it return to sender and send.
I write rhymes that flow like a river.
Carrying my words that I want to deliver.
Guess you can say Lil Gary's a giver.
Filtering life's hard times just like a damn liver.
I hope I'll be around for a while.
And I hope everyday I can share my big smile.
Waiting on the day a publisher will get my number and dial.
And say damn Lil Gary we sure love your crazy real ass funny new style...
