#MyFirstPostRevisited

Thank you to my Sister Ritu for tagging me in this challenge. After rummaging through my blog’s attic, I was able to find and dust off my first post here at wordpress.

street certified

look at me
a street corner vendor
doping up my people
my cash flow running deep

look at me
the nba is my future
a playground superstar
that can’t be beat
i got skill on top of skill
dunk or trey
#1 draft pick is my prayer

look at me
single mother holding it down
baby’s daddy disappeared like houdini
never to be found
9 to 5 paying it all
one check away from a link card
for my baby’s sake i stand tall

look at me
I turned my life around
use to be a drug pusher
prison calling me
God changed my heart
set my soul free
now a street corner preacher
doing it all in God’s name
living life with my head up
never again in shame

Ok…so the rules

Obvious rules:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.)
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of ladybugs).

Other rules:

  • Cut and paste your old post into a new post or reblog your own bad self. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
  • Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
  • Tag…um…tentwotwelve five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
  • Notify your tags in the comment section of their blog (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
  • Include “the rules” in your post.

I tag a hand full of some of the great talents here
