Self Portrait Challenge


Tomorrow may never come.
For you or me, life is unpromised.
Tomorrow may never show up.
For you, for me, this life is not promised.
I ain't no perfect man.
I'm trying to do the best that I can
with what it is I have.
I ain't no perfect man.
I'm trying to do the best that I can
with what it is I have.
Put my heart and soul into this song.
I hope you feel me.

Umi Says by Mos Def (another iPod crush)

But you are doing a damn fine job.
And I feel you.

Now where did you get those sweats?!

Totally one of my favorite Mos Def songs. Although really, how do you choose? I just left you a really wordy cupcake comment over on flickr. FYI.

good words!

um, my most favorite song by mos def. like, ever. (just barely beating out love and ghetto rock, though)

it's on every mix tape (cd, whatever-- I'm still old school) I ever put together.

that song does something to me. I'm so happy to see it here today.
