“Butterflies Don’t Have A Finish Line”

Previously a caterpillar of povertry… Inspired inch by inch… Motivated by it’s movement… Unlike bee’s waiting for their pollen promotion. They resign from the cacoon created within to start their career… Ready to fly into it’s future… You may be blinded by their beauty… But they’re more focused on the workload they can carry onto their wings… -Ricky “Randum” Maeweather


They may steal your style… Attempt to imitate your outfit… Shop for your favorite socks to rock… Portray your personality… And still lack what it takes to walk a mile in your shoes… -Ricky “Randum” Maeweather


I’m ready to see what the after life has in store for me… I’m cherishing the moments enjoyed walking this earth… I hope the one’s I truly care about continue to prosper when I’m gone… I want them to understand they didn’t cause my reasoning for leaving… And I will always be within their presence like a guardian angel gift…


Never expect a perfect path on your journey of joyfulness.. There will be road blocks before you reach the reward… Pot holes that attempt to perish your plans… Just remember that you are the driver to your destiny… Your tank should always be fueled by your focus… It is your motivation that moves you through the barricades of people who never believed…


Jealousy can seem airborne… Hatred can become hypnotizing… Envy infiltrates around areas you enter… Sanctuaries built for downfalls prayed upon through post… Should never stop you from aggravating them all with your accomplishments… Make them suffer by seeing your success… -Ricky “Randum” Maeweather

“Gloomy Ground”

I find myself stepping into my own puddle… My sorrow showers over on the ground where I hit rock bottom… And yet I still manage to find the right emotions to evaporate the pool of my problems… -Ricky “Randum” Maeweather

“Over Qualified” Poem

You ignore their application… Avoided their opportunity for an interview… By passed whatever benefits they brought up… Your personality is a priceless payment… Your character over qualifies you… It is not your job to become what they expect of you… Your employment is protecting your own peace… -Ricky “Randum” Maeweather

If my heart still beats it means I still have business to attend to… I can’t see it pumping without a purpose… It’s bascially the engine to my ambition… -Ricky “Randum” Maeweather
