Not Looking Back

Our lifestyles be close captioned
addicted to fatal attractions
No fairy tales for this young black male
Some see me stranded in this land of hell, and jail waiting
until God sends me my mail
Wishing I live my life a legend, immortalized in pictures
Why shed tears? Save your sympathy
My childhood years were spent burying my peers in the cemetary
Here's a message to the newborns, waiting to breathe
If you believe then you can achieve
Just look at me
Against all odds, though life is hard we carry on
Living in the projects, broke with no lights on
To all the seeds that follow me
protect your essence
Born with less, but you still precious
Just smile for me now
Now as I open up my story
with the blaze
And you can picture thoughts slowly
up on phrases I wrote
And I can walk you through the days that I done
I often wish that I could save everyone
but I'm a dreamer
Have you ever seen a nigga who was dry in the rain
overlooking his tomorrows and they finally came?
Look back on childhood memories and I'm still feeling the pain
live too long in my past you will go insane
To many hassles in my local life, surviving the strain
But when I focus on reality I broke and in chains
Had a dream of living wealthy and making it big
And after all my momma's thanking God for blessing ha child
All my momma gots to do now is collect it and smile
joshua reid



Inner Feelings

How I feel is hard to explain
too many thoughts always
racing through my brain.
Sometimes I feel mental-
like I'm going insane,
like I have no potential
and I'll always be the same.
I block out reality-
I'm the only one to blame
I only see what I wanna see
As opposed to what I became.
I see myself as plain-
point out all the bad...
too hard to see the good,
trust me, I wish I could!
I do believe we all have a destiny
so in this life whats here for me
joshua reid



Living To Die

Everything that has a begining, has an end
Nothing can last foreverr, everything decends
Breathing stops, eyes close shut
Lips go cold, you're out of luck
Death is feared, by everything and everyone
But it's so normal, stop worrying, have fun
Death is a part of life
And no matter how you take yourself, a gun, a knife
There's only two places to go, you hear your funerral bells
And now they've made their chose, to heaven or to the hells
No matter where you go, you're in the aftermath
You're stuck here now, thoughts are all you have left
And if you admit it or not, we're all in eternal death
joshua reid



Trapped In My Own Mind Part 3

If in my quest to achieve my goals
I stumble or crumble and lose my soul
Those that knew me would easily co-sign
There was never a life as hard as mine
No father no money no chance and no guide
I only follow my voice inside
if it guides me wrong and i do not win
I'll learn from my mistakes and try to achieve again
I know not what I search for
But I know I have yet to find it,
Because it is invisible to the eye
My heart must search to it blinded.
And if by chance I find it,
Will I know my mission is achieved?
Can one come to conclusions,
Before the question is conceived?
Just as no one knows
what lies beyond the shore,
I will never find the answer to
what it is that I search for
