Thinking about you in every way
Your hair…
Your lips…
Your smile…
And your eyes…
Thinking that you are
And wise…
I love the way you
The way you talk…
The way you say my name
There are days that I
Miss you…
Desire you…
Care for you…
And love you…
I sometimes sit and wonder if you
Are thinking of me…
As I think of you
Darkness clouds your mind
Not understanding the process of right and wrong
The beast within you consuming your very soul
Leaving a empty vessel
Going through life with no meaning
Faith in nothing but pain suffering and chaos
Living for the thrill of the hunt
Living for the moment to concur
The devil your master no hope for the light of day

All alone in this cold black abyss
Solitude your comfort zone
No one to understand you at all
Alone in your cruel world that you created for yourself
Twisted thoughts consume your every waking hour
Strong compulsions to inflict
Terror or pain in the hearts of others
In a state of diminished mental capacity
You go alone to hell and bring back others
Leaving destruction in your path
I see many things
I see the good and the bad
The hard times and the wonderful times
As I leaf through the newspaper
I see a world of chaos
The war overseas is destroying our lives
I see people dying, lying, cheating and stealing
In our country the very place we call home
Satan is in our mist
The devil has got his horns on this world
And won’t let loose
And I’m just sitting here waiting
Waiting on the other shoe to drop
I look around me and I wonder
What this world is becoming to
Judgment day is nipping at the back of our heels
And were not ready
Were to occupied with crime, punishment and greed
We don’t even bother to look up and take notice
It’s like we have shields on our eyes
Blocking that 6th sense we are supposed to have
Our instinct is no longer there
Foreign to our minds
Decapitated from our thoughts
Somebody’s watching…
The heat of a glare bouncing against your back
Following every move every step you make
Sending shivers down your spine

Somebody’s watching you…
Waiting on you to make a mistake
So they can pick up where you left off
And leave you with his foot in your face

Somebody’s watching…
Sit up and take notice
Watch your back
Cause their just waiting to take your place
Move in your space
Leaving you too tired to pick up the pace

Somebody’s watching…
Taking notes
Dictating what you do and what you don’t
Learning your fears and your weaknesses
Watching, waiting…
Patiently waiting to get beneath your skin
To find out what makes you tick
Cause their only there to win
Caught in the system
No where to run No where to hide
The law more our foe then friend

Our young mothers
Caught in the welfare system
Not able to get out
Before getting ****** in to the governments game
Trying to beat the system
Not aware that the system is beating them

Our sons getting caught up
In the street system
Being stereo-typed and classified
To fit their own beliefs
Being harassed by our Police officers
who are supposed to protect and serve
But instead think they
Are above the law
The judge, jury and the executioner

This world that we live in
Is full of chaos and destruction
Not only chased by our district cops
But by devious gangsters
That think they own the streets
Growing up in a world
Of drugs, crime and greed
Money the ruler of all evil

Our sons getting shipped of
To fight a war that they don’t believe in
Fighting for a man that doesn’t have
our best interest at heart

Our daughters living in a world of
material things and money
taking the saying *** sells literally
the times have changed
Girls are the aggressive ones now
Seeing what they want and going for it
Anything goes at any and all cost

In the midst of it all
Losing face, self respect and common sense
Shaking what our mothers took 9 months to make
Showing our self-loath with the clothes they wear
Putting it down to not being ashamed of our bodies and being free

In actually reality we have imprisoned ourselves in our minds
Diluting this life we call freedom repeating our past
Not knowing that our failures today are our failures tomorrow
The system is designed to entrap and snare
To detain and restore
To be lost and forgotten and never thought of again no more
Silent as the storm
Black as the nights sky
You never know when its coming
Temperature ranging from hot to cold
Moon swings come and they go
She can make you feel like the lowest **** on earth
Or make you feel like a King

We are in a league of our own
The take no mess take charge kind of woman
Sweet as honey beautiful as the sunset
She’ll drain you and leave you begging for more
With her smooth complexion hair just right
Dress to impress and the legs smooth as silk
Her take charge attitude with sophistication
Can work the room in any situation
Wither in the boardroom, fancy restaurant
or at home with family and friends

She can cut you down without missing a beat
Leave you standing there wondering what happen
A work of art in her own right
A independent women but can make you feel
Like you are needed always treating you like you the man
A way with words that will leave no room argument
Will cut so deep leave you grasping for breath
But you can never want to hurt this woman
Cuz she can turn on you like Cain turn on Abel

We are devious creatures and with a devious mind
And a women who is scorn is a dangerous combination
A woman with so much confidence
It will make you sit up and take notice
But at the same time she knows her place
As a women by your side
While all the while bringing home the bacon, cook it and serve it to you like royalty

Watch out cause she’s on the rise
As a strong independent black woman
Never fearing of the two strikes against her
In this mans world that we live in
So watch out, take notice and pay attention because she is unstopable
Testing, testing 123
testing 1,2,3
is this on cuz I dont think you hear me
Let me speak my piece
before you interrupt my thoughts
my frame of mind, my inner conscience
Letting you in on the secret
I hold dear to my heart
of what you would call

Open your eyes and realize
that your hiding behind
dark glasses so that you wont see no evil
Blinded by these shades
so that you wont have to see the truth
content to be ignorant of the happenings around you
Pretending to be wise about
the things thats going down
Thinking that the world revolves around you
and that it will not pass you by

You need too wake up and smell that
fresh brewed coffee or the roses
what ever it takes to light that bulb that floats above your head
You need to take matters in your own hands
Cuz your destiny is yours to mold and control
So stop foot dragging and half-stepping
pick up the pace or you will be the last
to cross that tape in this race

Testing, testing
yall dont hear me
turn the volume up
Let me spit these words in your head
to jump start your brain
so that you can formulate and understand
What Im saying that you are the future
and let no one interfere in your plans
So keep your face up and then you to
Will..get..your…mic check

— The End —
