Standing on the shore of this big wide sea Looking at the horizon as far as the eyes can see All my life in front of me Little ripple waves Big foaming thunder storm I stand there facing all Shakingly cold watching lightning touch down under Standing there await other days of wonder while the storm has gone and the sun goes under.
Life is as a sea. Never knowing if it will be calm or if there will be thunder.
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

"I fear of having my turbulent waves crash down upon you. I fear of having my chaos entangle you in it’s mess. I fear my darkness enwrapping, engulfing and entrapping you in it’s depths. I fear of leaving you bewildered by the cryptic words that slip my tongue."
I feel the ebbing flow of venomous pain in my veins. I feel the thoughts like bullets to my brain, the emotions crashing down like turbulent waves. I see the scars rawer than before. So here I am, listening to music louder than before. Painting my heart with more colors than before, because it all hurts more than before.
