Best Advice: I can. I will. I must.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

“I can. I will. I must”

I was thrust into trust

Of the process

I gave reciprocity

And the atrocity

That cost me

Was ostentacious


In this time of losing

faith of men choosing

To abstain and refrain

From entraining and entertaining

I taught myself

To love myself

Trust myself

to self delve

Into self help

Self health

It was the hardest time

of my life time, no life lines

And ET the Hip Hop Teacher

Reached my ear, beseeched here

His message was clear

I listened to it on repeat to hear

Let it sink in

Think it to link it

To my habits, my behavior

A self-love, love labor

Now it’s engrained and I trust

“I can. I will. I must.”

His mantra I repeat

To engrain was no easy feat

My realization was nonplussed

“I can. I will. I must.”
