Who I am

They ask who I am so I think I will give it a whirl
I am a father to my sons and a very special little girl
I Work harder than most men with such precision
I write poetry that portrays my opinionated vision
I hold the door open for all who follow 
I rise when I fall no matter how hard to swallow
I speak with confidence I believe in me
I strive for success and being all I can be
I raise my children with the methods of my Mother
I love my Sister and I miss my little brother
I struggle to smile, some days are easier to accept
I have the personality that no one can forget
I tell good jokes I make people truly enjoy
I sometimes cry and my smile's a decoy
I have been through more than the average man
Never break the law or ended up in the can
I took care of the less fortunate  for 5 yrs strong
Then fell into depression because they were treated so wrong
I don't need lots of money to have a good time
I seem to be hitting what they refer to as my prime
I lost some loved ones because I could not Heal
Just wish they considered how depression made me feel
I was treated as if I wanted what took place
I remember feeling like a failure a total disgrace
I have come a long way from where I was stuck
I understand now I don't need good luck
I wish that someday I could help promote change
I have So much to offer yet too much to arrange
So I write about change in lines of poetic verses
Because poetry helped me escape the constant curses
I will end this poem on the upmost powerful note
be respectful Promote love, teach your children, believe in yourself 
and you will stay afloat
