Holding me accountable for my actions even when it was as simple as not making it home before 12 like you asked.. I remembered a time where you didn’t pull in till about 3am I had got in about 1am you knocked on the door. Me and Chris playin sleep and you said son what time you get in. We young so we play sleep. Daddy say now Michael you kno the rules son so come out there where you was at till 1am. Then went in his room. So I got up and went outside bout a hour later. Daddy come tap on the window of the caviar and tell me let that be a lesson he is always watching. Continue to watch over me pop.
