Lord willing

Lord willing
I'm gonna get it by any means
Bust my hands up and nights I lose sleep
I'm a get it even if I gotta bleed
Ain't no stopping this locomotive 
U gone see
I got the magic potion
Secret elixir it's called devotion
Committed to the thought of hope and
It's potent
The drama that comes 
It's can be so thought provoking
How it's so ever flowing 
Like poetry in motion
Gotta stay on a pivot 
Make the concoction even with ingredients missing
And when one way don't work gotta southpaw switch it
Be humble at times but move so vicious
It don't gotta fall together 
But it still gotta pass thru trenches
Still gotta be relentless
Been thru the waves of the demented
That's how I know threaded for this
I'm better than this
Even if I a had genie I wish for nothing much the patience
To match the perseverance
Lord willing
Lord willing
The good Lord gave me the will so I'm exploit this gift then......peace
