Don’t dwell on being the best
Just focus on doing your best
We reap what we sow
I PRAY

THROUGH THIS POEM,
YOUR SOUL CONTINUES TO BE LIFTED

I PRAY THAT YOUR GIFT FROM GOD MOVES OTHERS SO THEY CAN BECOME A WITNESS

I PRAY THAT DARK DAYS SHORTEN
& BRIGHTER DAYS LIGHTEN

I PRAY YOU NEVER FALL
INTO THE DEVIL’S WORLD

I PRAY THAT YOU SEE YOUR HAPPINESS IS MY JOY & MY JOY IS YOUR HAPPINESS.
NEVER A WEAKNESS

I PRAY THAT YOUR SKIN STAY SMOOTH &
YOUR APPEARANCE STAY YOUNG LIKE THE YOUTH

I PRAY THAT YOU GIVE A **** ABOUT YOURSELF MORE

I PRAY THAT YOU MAKE MONEY

I PRAY THAT YOU CONTINUE TO NEVER BACK DOWN FROM ANYBODY

I PRAY THAT YOU NEVER WASTE AN OPPORTUNITY

I PRAY THAT WHEN YOUR KIDS GROW UP,
THEY GET TO WITNESS AN AMAZING LIFE WITH BOTH PARENTS BY THEIR SIDE

I PRAY THIS SELF-VOICE WITHIN YOU GIVE YOU MOTIVATION
You live for you

Someone asked me ,

Simply I told your NAME.
My love is my attitude.

Man … "You Cannot Be SERIOUS !" ...

You AIN'T … " John Mc….." ... !!!!!

And That's A FACT …
Why You Trying To Play BAD … ?
When You AIN'T … " Mike Jack " … !!!?!!!

Is Your Name … " EDDIE "… ?!?
Cos' You Seem ... UNSTEADY …
And Are CLEARLY Quite DELIRIOUS ... !!!!

Wrong And Strong ….
DO NOT Belong In The Same Vicinity …
You're INSANE … " CLINICALLY " … !!!!!

And Some Kind of CLOWN ...
To CLAIM INSISTENTLY That You ... NEVER Back Down … !!!!!

So You're … ALWAYS RIGHT … !!!?!!!
What's In Your Mind … ?!?
To Think That YOU Deal In The TRUTH … !!!!!!

Now That's Just NOT TRUE ...
And You KNOW IT TOO … !!!!!!!

DENY …. ALL You Like … !!!
But You're The Type Whether Girl Or Guy … !!!!!
Who NEEDS TO Find Some Time …. " Outside " ...
of Deluded Dreams That … Keep You CLEAN …

When REALITY Shows That You AIN'T Holmes … !!!!!
Or A BRILLIANT MIND … I Think You'll Find …

Your Light Is Dim To … SERIOUSLY Think …
That You Should RESIST ... ACCEPTING THIS ... !!!

Sometimes You're WRONG … !!!
And AREN'T As Strong As You … CLAIM To Be … !!!!!

Which Is Why Straight Words DISTURB Your Nerves …. !!!!!
Cos' You DON'T OBSERVE ... Relax And Learn ... !!!!!

You Just Get … PERTURBED … !!!
And REACT Like A Child When Your Profile …
Is Inspected Dissected And Shown To Be … DEFECTIVE … !!!!!

YOU And YOUR Collective …
Who Clearly Weren't Injected …
With ... Common Sense Directives … !!!

Where Humility's Selected …
Instead of ... IGNORANT Objectives … !!!!!

Like ... NOT Having The CLASS ...
To Accept That It's A FARCE To KEEP Acting Like An *** … !!!!!

When You've EXPOSED Yourself
To Be Lacking … Mental Health …  

By This I Mean …
Thought Waves That Lean …..

Towards IGNORANCE … !!!
And REACTIVE NONSENSE That LACKS Good Sense … !?!

It Seems Apologies Are Beyond Your Reach …
Like Logical Thoughts That Deplore And Ensure …

That Thoughts of WAR ...
Are REMOVED From The Fore When They Have NO CAUSE … !!!

Is it SO HARD To ADMIT In Your Heart … ?!?
That Some Things You Have Done Were REALLY Quite Dumb … !!!

It Seems That Your PRIDE And EGO COLLIDE ... !!!
Where IGNORANCE Lies Which Clearly Is Why ...

You TRY To DEFEND Your Brand of NONSENSE …  !!!!!
When You Should ACCEPT That It's Probably Best …
To Leave It For Dead And Make Recompense ...

For Things You Have Said …
That Were Better Off Left Inside of Your Head … !!!!!

I Guess I Can't Blame Ya When You Deal In Capers …
That Prove You Weren't Favoured By Our Lord And Creator … !!!

To Humble Yourself Instead of REACTING ….
Like Some … " Hound of Hell " … !!!
When You Become Trapped In Your EGO FILLED Cell … !!!

Where Is It You Dwell Alongside Your Pride … ?!?

In The End You May Find ... Yourself In A BIND …
Because PRIDE Like REGRETS Tends To BREED IGNORANCE …  

Then ... IGNORANCE SPREADS … !!!
DEEP INSIDE These Heads Who Tend To Be TENSE … !!!

And ... RESTLESS In Beds …  !!!!!  
Cos' Reality's BITE ... They CANNOT DENY … !!!!!

DENIAL DENIES A Vision of RIGHT …
Therefore It's CLEAR SIGHT That BLINDS Their Insight … !!!!!

The Insights They Try … !!!
To Use As Their Guide To NOT Backing Down … !!!

SERIOUSLY …. IMPERIOUSLY …. !!!!!

As If Who They Be …
Is BEYOND … " Royalty " … !!?!!

These Peeps Live In … " DREAMS " ...
Where Their Egos Then Feed Like … Blood ******* Fiends … !!!

But Even Drac' KNOWS To Abscond From Those Zones …
Where The Stakes Are High Like … De La Soul Vibes … !!!!!

HIGH Like Humility That Walks With Serenity ...
In The Face of These Enemies …
Who Claim To Be Friendly Whilst Aiming Obscenities … !!!

SERIOUSLY ... I Mean SERIOUSLY … !!!?!!!

... "So, You NEVER, Back Down !?!" …

I Can Hear Them NOW And See Their Frowns … !!!!
These CLOWNS Who Are Surplus ... To A Good Circus … !!?!!

Because They Are WORTHLESS ….  !!!
Like Crowds Are To … Hermits ... !!!!!!!!!!!  

Who Choose Spiritually ... To Move DIFFERENTLY …
Because What They Believe DENIES Egos And Breeds ...

A Place Where These Wrongs Are Allowed To Move On …. !!!
And IGNORANT Acts Are NOT SEEN As STRONG …….. !!!!!

TOO MANY Heads Now Present …
NONSENSE ... As Their Defence …. ?!?!?

For IMPURITIES In How They Be … ?!?!?
As If They Have ... IMPUNITY … ?!?!?!?!?

Well ... All's I Can Say Is …….

…….. " SERIOUSLY " …… !?!
Sometimes people really do say the most ignorant things, and then have the cheek to try to defend them, with even more foolishness, this poem speaks on them .....

These Days It's CLEAR ... !!!

I've Now Passed ... " Those Years " ... !!!

Where ... RUNNING My Mouth ...
To PROVE WITHOUT Doubt That My Thoughts Are SOUND ...
Is NO LONGER A Need That Lives Within Me ... !!!

AGREE To DISAGREE Is Now The Theme ...
With Which I ROLL When The Youth Get BOLD ...

And Wanna TELL ME How Things Now Go ...
....... I KNOW What I KNOW ....... !!!

As I'm SURE They Do ...
But There's Something In The Youth That's NOW ON SHOW ...

A DISRESPECT For FACTS That Come From OLDER Mans' ...
YUP ... Mans' Like Me Who Deal In FACTUAL SPEECH ... !!!

NOT Conspiracies ...
That Are Now On TV's ... !!!!

I CONSPIRE To REVEAL ...
The Things Youngsters NOW SEE ...
That Simply ARE NOT REAL ...
And ARE FILLED With FALLACIES ... !!!

Like ... DODGY Referees ...
And Stars Whose SHINE Concedes .......
To Personal DEFEATS That Leads Me To Believe ...
DEEP DOWN That ... They Are WEAK ... !!!!!!

SO MANY New Age CLOWNS ... !!!
Who've Signed These CRAZY DEALS ... !!!!!

Marketing ... Promotion ...
So YES Living ... " The DREAM " ... !!!

Causing A COMMOTION Because The Dream ... "Conceals" ...
A Lack of TRUE DEVOTION To What Most Want To See ... !!!

HIGH Quality ... NOT Sporting CHEATS ... !!!!!
Or MIMING Teens Whose Sheen Is CLEAN ...
Until We See Them ... BROKEN Down ... !!!!!

WITHOUT Being Drowned ...
By The HYPE That SURROUNDS ...

"They're the greatest thing to come along,
since Jesus Christ, The son of GOD !"

"The son of who, he's just a fool !
Check Bieber son, he is that dude !"

"Okay, can I ask, how old are you ?"

"I'm Twenty Two, what does that prove ?"

"It proves that you have a limited view !
Don't get it confused, I have one too,
but mine has seen, a bit more, nah' mean !
Respect for old heads, now seems to be dead, and I ain't that old !"

"Who told you so, you're grey and choose to not make moves,
your thinking's off, I think your mind's gone soft !"

"You're probably right, what could I have learnt
from seeing the times, when you had to earn,
your time to shine, and rep' that hype !"

YEAH ... " Rep' That Hype ! " ...

NOT Just Get Signed And Then SUDDENLY BE ...

" THE MAN " ... Like MIKE ... !!!!!

Or Like ... " ALI " ...

" THE GREATEST of ALL TIMES ! "

OPINIONS In The Young I DO WELCOME ...
But ONLY When RESPECT ...
Is What Young Heads Then COME WITH Next ... !!!

The Sad Thing Is ...
It's NOT JUST Kids NOW FLIPPING The Script ...

A LOT of OLDER Heads ...
Now Be Running Talk That's FOUL ... !!!
Since When Did EVERYBODY ...
Have Knowledge That Was GODLY ... !?!?!
These Days MOST Peoples' Arguments ...
Are CLEARLY Rather .... SHODDY .... !!!!!

To Me These Days It's CLEAR ...
These Whipper Snappers FEAR ...
Arguments of Reason ...
That PROVE Their Thoughts AREN'T Seasoned ... !!!

So When They're Brought ... It's TREASON .... !!!!!!
And Then COME OUT Their DEMONS ... !!!

DEFIANCE PRIDE And Then DENIAL ...
Passive AGGRESSION They KEEP Defending ...
UNTIL ... Common Sense Lessons ...
Leave Their Demons ... SUITABLY Weakened ... !!!

We've ALL Been There When Youth ... "ENSNARES" ...
Our Ability To HEAR The Things Most of Us FEAR ... !!!!!!!!!!

Because When Most Are ... " YOUNG " ...
It's CLEAR That WISDOM Comes ...

BEYOND ............................................................

..... " THOSE YEARS " .....
It's always an interesting write when looking back, especially at the changes that have occurred since your youth has faded, and you see and hear what the next generation, have to say .....

don't think you could
beat the street without
me

it's madov's bossy laughter
and his vossy
attitude

i don't know if
you know what i mean:
solitude

but that's fine my brother
but that's fine my sister

without writing
everything is fist fighting
without fist fighting
everything is writing

i need me a

new language
new lady
thousand babies

and i'll found a tribe
you never heard of it'll
be called

"Positive attitude must be backed by a reason not the result."
It must be based upon your action not the result.

Please stop.

There are two sides to every painting

Only one of them

Is blank.
