Never Been Right


I ain't ever been right 
Because I stayed to the left.
I keep my walk sleight,
Yes I keep my steps deft.
My mama raised me the best she could.
But life had a different plan.
I started hanging with others in the neighborhood
and I became a different man.
Drugs became my relief from depression
They helped me out of my shell
But they slowed my progression
As I started to rebel.
Now many years have passed by,
And I have slowed down a lot
There's much I regret, no lie.
And there's much more that I have forgot.
