Ten years I waited. Ten years I anticipated to be who I was called to be. Everything tried to stop me. Obstacles came to block me, but I was determined to persevere. Through it all I had to reach in myself, cause I just couldn’t depend on no body else. With my hand stretched toward the man with the plan in his hand, I stayed focused because I knew I had to make it.
