Darius Johnson, M.A.
I was once you
I was once you, I was once sad feeling down and blue
I was once in your shoes, I once thought trouble was cool
I was once a product of my environment, not once did I listen, time after time again
I was once in the back of a police car. Yea I once did it, not thinking about the crimes I
I once hurt a family, including mine too, but no one’s perfect even saints make mistakes too
I once hated myself, I once blamed myself, and I continued to play the victim until I forgave
I once ran out of luck, I once remember feeling stuck, I once never realized until time was up
I once been through the struggle and more than once I watched the system take my brothers
I once changed my life and just that ONCE it made a difference, I made better decisions for me. I
was once you, now I have a college degree.
DON’T GIVE UP
