There's not one instant that goes by where I regret a past decision.
I allow the sun the greet me every morning with a smile, in hope of the shadow to cast.
They say you shape the world you live in, as everything is just an illusion you create.
Swanging in the honda, breaking peoples necks as I roll through the rough roads, you don't
need to spend a million dollars just the get attention.
Destined to meet a boy from Thailand, would have I known he would have changed my life forever.
2010, moving back to Irving after a disastrous 8 months in Houston I met this boy named Tiger.
Who would have known I would learn how to work on cars from someone whose 2 years younger then me? Steamy Summer nights came day by day, burns and cuts being inflicted from doing what we love, yet nothing can stop our drive.
Speeding through the hallow roads, full force on the pedal of gas reaching unimaginable speeds at the speed of light.
It felt like my soul was left behind as the speed climbed from 40 to 120 in a instant, this is the lifestyle I live for and its thanks to my brother from another mother, Tiger. Who would have known a 14 year old kid would know how to work on cars, who would have known this 14 year old would make more money then most of the adults out here, who would have known, this 14 year old would shape my life and future.
the way it makes my tummy roll
with delight as i'm about to enjoy
a hearty bowl of pho
pho, pho, it is so good
This food, I like the way it taste
putting some hot sauce makes it really great
it really brings out the taste
pho is the only way to go
when you are hungover, eat some pho
what a surprise you will find in pho
is that you will get full before your home
this delicious dish
is yum in my tum
go pho go!
It was spring, but it was summer I wanted,
The warm days and the great outdoors.
It was summer, but it was fall I wanted,
The fruity leaves and the refreshing, dry air.
It was fall, but it was winter I wanted.
The crisp snow and the joy of holiday spirit.
It was winter, but it was spring I wanted,
The warmth and the blossoming of nature.
I was a child, but it was adulthood I wanted,
The freedom and the respect.
I was 15 but it was 18 I wanted,
The maturity and sophistication.
I was middle-aged, but it was 21 I wanted,
The youth and the free spirit.
I was retired, but it was middle age I wanted,
The presence of mind, without the limitations.
My life is over
But I never got what I wanted.
To Momma and Poppa
No longer a child,
Not yet an adult,
But a boy trying to carve a path for himself
I'm learning to make my own choices,
Molding a future with my bare hands,
Learning how to step out,
Despite the shaky ground
I no longer have to devote my time to studies,
But I crave an independence,
One that lets me explore my hunger for this world,
A world full of hidden meanings
But sometimes I fall,
As I struggle to take in the world before me,
Overwhelmed by the bigger picture,
The adulthood that lays ahead
And it must be hard for you to accept,
That I'm building a life for myself,
Making mistakes that you cannot cure,
Choices you never dreamed I'd make.
