Have you ever left in a situation
where you want to write a poem
and you have exact words and emotions to write about;
but then looking down at your own words your eyes start hurting so bad that now you don't want to write it any more?

Laced with my ambitions mixed with motivations and a teenage life that was forsaken like a
Frankenstein as a fail creation to the family members I thought would've had  my back though all
The troubles but they are the troubles in a world so potent to mind controlling and self-
Absorbing in breaking a focused Lord that only wants the best for all his children but the system
Says otherwise to prized possessions like peace in America where they spike what you eat and
Make a profit off the weak,
Blacks in America can't be leaders without corruption and greed and every step you take is
Mostly a bullet or on your knees especially desensitizing all the people to the wrong things in life
that'll make you **** just for some bling bringing kids and teens in hospitals to be adopted into
Worse families is the trade where money is the seed amplifying what you need collecting checks
Off of kids you don't need pinching the poor and defenseless to meet all demands thinking why
Is it that God doesn't take a stand.

a while ago,
we were
eagerly in love,
so, eagerly
we were in chains.

Once, we were members of a party.
Parts of a whole. A hopeless oath
of devotion to another, to durdle,
intimately, through the grandest lie.

Once, we were eagerly in chains.
(Now, contemptuous in disdain)
Once, we were excited to be.
(Now, that's just not what we're about)

Once, we were bonded in a gamble.

Now, we're barely willing bystanders,
no more an adventure, than it is
   a situation.
Many times, we put everyone ahead of ourselves. We feed people and forget to eat. We love people and forget to love ourselves. If someone that we care about needs something we will drive hours away to give them what we believe that they need. Even if we are not in the best situation to do so.
There is nothing wrong with having love for others. In fact, that this is what makes us human our love. The way that we give and share our time with people. Not just our loved ones but those that may not be able to assist themselves. Before you reach out to be there for everyone do a self-check.
Make sure that you are okay. Will whatever you are going to give put you in a bad situation. Not financially but mentally and physically. We need to be balanced in all that we do. Don’t give to everyone else and have nothing to give to yourself. It is not selfish to take care of you. When you are down ask yourself …who is going to care for you? If you don’t have and answer continue with your self check. Make sure that you love you then them.
Be balanced in all that you do!

Crying so hard you gum up the works
flem and spit that's gotta go down
nowhere else but the throat

Saying the wrong thing
being met with immediate silence
as you sweat and shuffle in your shoes

Hearing the wrong thing
and not knowing if you should speak
so you swallow followed by
'uuu-'ntil someone stops you

Art is nothing but a creation
Very few pursue it as an aspiration
It hardly gets any appreciation

Hey! Chota Mota Foundation
Hats off to your dedication
Thanks for giving us motivation
By finding art as an occupation

Hey! Chota Mota Foundation
Your organisation is a celebration
No matter what the situation
Never loose your determination

Hey! Chota Mota Foundation
Hope you be the best in the nation

do I situate every situation that comes to me?
Or do I explain this in a gratifying way firmly?
Do I walk the walk more than I talk to talk?
Do I sleep in other Silence while the demons Stalk?
Is it a secret more than it is a rumor?
Am I too fast for your daughter more like a Zoomer?
It is no amount of energy that can place me in this
category of feeling more than myself in the normal state
relying more on this place that I've always been
freaking out everything that I can relate,
when I get nervous in this place I surely do Shake,
is there a moment where you won't feel like the world revolves around you?
are there days where you just feel like everyone
will fake around you?...
Do you recognize the railing?
Or will the rust fall off?
Do you ever feel like your heart deserves more?
Are these questions too off?
But I bet you'd feel good if you were turned on,
like a surgical machine,
and I bet you'll never feel something wrong,
don't think you know what I mean.

The reality of any situation is a balance of subjective and objective cognition
which generally depends very much on one’s experience and predisposition.
