Thank You

from by Kabir



Now let me take you back to how it all began
I was learning how to freestyle trying to be the man
I started a business but had no business plan
Entering a world I didn't truly understand
But I always had a microphone and pen in my hand
And I always had some musical friends in my band
So gradually I began to build up my brand
Wrote songs to quench my thirst and fill up my fans
With tasty treats so sweet and melodious
Played piano and was obsessed with Thelonious
Made some bad decisions so erroneous
On the road to respect the journey was the loneliest
Achieved some success and got hate from the phoniest
Cats who talked smack but didn't even really know me just
Jealous, overzealous now they wanna be my homie
The situation had enough irony to throw me

Thanks to my people for all that you did
And thanks to my family for raising this kid
Thanks to my friends for all of your help
I'll always have your back and here's a toast to your health

And when I'm gone my music will live on
Where's your life? Did you lose it in the song?
Where's the right? Did you confuse it with the wrong?
Where's the mic? Did you forget to turn it on?
Nothing too flashy just reliable flow
Olympic Gold, undeniable yo!
Teaching is my hustle, I make viable dough
Is it rewarding? Yes decidedly so
Never fell off, just took a slide in the snow
Never left the game just took a ride in the boat
With my book of rhymes for when I need to write in a quote
Anything to make it more exciting and dope
I'm igniting the hope of the self defeatists
How, you might wonder, would I achieve this?
I just rip the song to shreds in little itty-bitty pieces
Stress releases in the form of a thesis

Thanks to my people for all that you did
And thanks to my family for raising this kid
Thanks to my friends for all of your help
I'll always have your back and here's a toast to your health
