Round n round
this earth

Putting flags in the ground
never enough work

When you gotta get it now
only thing that’s certain
is my mind on money piles
and my heart left deserted

Because this climb gets pretty wild
but at least when they close my curtain
and I float up to the clouds.

My love will have a purpose
several generations down.

The love of money
really equals the love of me
especially so because I receive such silently

My dynasty is still in progress
so begin to walk not time to talk it

too much we gotta do
to me I gotta prove
plus work is to the tenth power in solitude

So watch I move

Wings still down

I thought flight could come to those on the ground

Don’t wanna walk around

I rather fly high

But without the confidence to span

You’ll never see the sky.

Don’t wanna be the type of guy

to waste talent.

But the soul behinds these eyelids

Needs balance
to walk the fine line between genius and insanity.

How can it be
that my canopy is litter dollar signs

but I never dream of cents
just a few problems of mine.

Wake up with no repentance.

Waist deep sinking in it
not even time to think a minute.
Grab your mind and all composure.
Stroke towards the top until it’s over.
Now the sun is shining gracefully.
Hop in my boat.
Away with me.

I used to wonder why the darkness wanted me so bad.

Probably because my light is something it never had.

Feeling off balance stumbling but glad.

Because blessed are the few who are granted this path.

Theirs for you would have been a short order.

If life was easy god wouldn’t hear from many supporters.

So keep your head high in the midst of all sort of.... bull.

You’d be a fool not to keep running the score up.

Waiting Waiting

slowly fading.

From everything that used to make me.

I'd come around but then you'd hate me.

Not in the mood to entertain thee.

Neglected pain, but now I face it.

Trapped in my mind, stuck in the basement.

Hoping that I'll better with renovation.

Took out the doubt, and put some faith in.

Like a bird
We have a lot depending on
the right direction.

But Unlike it
We have too many doubts
and questions.

Spread your wings
but don’t span out nervously.

God gave moral compasses
to Guide us personally.

Never be afraid
to go and do your best.

Keeping pulling straws
until you’ve built your nest .
