I’ve learned to assimilate
Found ways to eliminate
unwanted and unneeded things
that only served to make wounds sting

I’ve figured how to accommodate
to ease my way through broken gates
to get to places I’m not wanted
Little do they know, I’m haunted

I’ve found a way to slip right through
To carve paths unknown hitherto
It wasn’t easy let me tell you
But I’ve got rhymes, and songs to sell you

I’ve photographic evidence
Of places been, discarded hence
Of youth unhinged, damages flaunted
Wasted ways traversed undaunted

I’ve made it here to fifty-five
Heart still beating, still alive
Finding ways and means to make it
Working hard not to forsake it

Yes, I’ve learned to assimilate
And found ways to eliminate
Immeasurable unwanted things
That only served to clip my wings
Words and music by Andrew L. Jackson
