Yo yo yo, lady friends, let’s rap on foundation.
Wait…I’m not talking about the foundation we put on our faces. I’m talking about support systems. The people that hold you down. The things that inspire you do go where you want to go.
When I think about “The Makings of B” (sounds like a dope album title, uh?), I think of myself like a house.
See! There I am. I’m a brick….houuuse!
Now don’t y’all go laughing at me. Writer, I am. Artist, I am not. Hehe!
Without a foundation, I may stand up for a bit. But eventually I would sink.
No bueno, right? My foundation is a strong faith in God. Now I know everyone isn’t “religious” or “spiritual” and I respect that. But mannnn, I’m not sure WHERE I would be without my belief. Actually, I’d be in jail for having knocked someone out. Seriously. My faith in God keeps me going when I feel like stopping. It’s what gives me a sense of purpose. It gives me that extra “umph”. My foundation is really enough to keep me up, but I also need the flowers in my life.
Don’t know where I would be without them. My house looks better because of the flowers. It is because of them that I stand stronger. And they bring me a ton of happiness.
Am I making sense or are y’all falling asleep?
Okay, your turn…what’s your foundation?
