it was the day, i didn’t expect to find you i didn’t expect to learn you i didn’t expect to share so much i was hesitant at first, but of course i gave in, i opened up knowing full you will left me too
Ding! . . . Ding! . . . A man locks eyes with an artificial light that shows a world clouded in darkness. Gleaming with empty words and false promises, the light is shut. “Not now,” he says, as he drifts of into the night.
Ding! . . . Ding! . . . The man springs from his bed, chasing the light. Yet his calloused hands go stiff— he backs away with a shake of the head. “I’m not ready,” he says, as he eyeballs a dusky mirror reflecting on days that have long gone.
Ding! . . . Ding! . . . This time, he merely acknowledged the light— the light that enamored him once, maybe twice. Yet this time, he simply glanced as it died in the twilight. “Why bother?” he says, as he dreams of days that once were.
my intent was that light = cellphone, but it could be up to your interpretation. :)
at the outset of self foundation i am bewildered into self containment for nothing i see is me and what i am now lay naked and reluctant to seek the unattainable goal contentment which is in itself confusion

Blame the restraints for putting things off When juggling lots are you equipped to restrict Having let previous priorities slip Is a sense of urgency necessary to measure the relevance of discipline
Hesitant rings when the end is nigh The bottom line aligned to confine Day turns to night in the passage of time Ignorance's bliss blisters bright As the goal is narrowing A margin call for all your foresight You've done enough not to miss
What lie in your home, In corners, undisturbed. Are there thoughts, feelings, of things unknown, Or one's that may preturb? Have you ever felt a draft blow through; That shiver of regret. Or is your heart hidden from outside view, Unseen, by even you.
Saftey in shelter, in secrets kept, I see you, tall and proud. I also peer through veil and shroud, Seeing loss for which you've never wept.
How can you expect, to be love adept, Shunning all feelings which have crept.
Psychological warfare been there been square ain't fair but you gotta run with it listen, i know it is hard to be different But we s'posed to be this the life that we livin livin, Are you really living? Are you really listening to the words i say take it day by day child
And it ain't breezy to be bold to be the type that will speak up loud without the choke And it ain't easy to be the punch line that can't be told an absent cough preceding a milky **** Dearly departin' I'm not a g but i move how the move with a head full of smarts man(j.s.)
Just remember that when your self care gets put on hold you leave your own fire out in the cold. And what a shame you're always learning opposed what you were told
dear child don't let them steal the light emitting from your soul- you can't even put down the shovel to realize you diggin' yourself deep ina hole Before you heal it's gonna be a while I know it's gonna be a while child
chin up child don't let em win protect yourself, love yourself and nurture what stirs within and man ignore the knocking- don't open the door in the fifth dimension you still rocking the crown that your ancestors wore but with it comes the blood sweat 'nd tears that they hoard don't get it twisted you're simply a new vessel that your family bore Don't explain anymore. watch your company mama they clouding up your aura
too many people claiming to be woke whilst walkin' in they sleep sometimes all you gotta do is close your eyes to unmask the wolves disguised as sheep
we livin' it up but when the street lights be flashin' we dashin' we ain't be lookin' back to notice who is or isn't laggin' Ya son's been running the streets then runnin' the sheets with loose babies makin cursed babies Dear child
Sometimes i try not to make the song cry Jay Z baby my own mama hate me But i don't sweat a drop cause I grew into the cream of the crop Destined to find the path that will lead my flesh to the top
and with each day that passes by i'll laugh i'll cry i'll learn became the flame- now watch me burn AHG mama we made it! AHG you really hate it! you n your mans can get up, get down AHG wait ya'll way too faded Dear child and when the song starts to cry I don't hold back in fact i let it seep into your souls only my art can fill these holes despite ya'll moles im out
