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

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

Seeing the future from the past

Today is filled with anger
fueled with hidden hate
scared of being outcast
afraid of common fate
Today is built on tragedies
which no one wants to face
nightmares to humanities
and morally disgraced
Tonight is filled with rage
violence in the air
children bred with ruthlessness
because no one at home cares
Tonight I lay my head down
but the pressure never stops
knawing at my sanity
content when I am dropped
But tomorrow I see change
a chance to build a new
Built on spirit intent of Heart
and ideals
based on truth
and tomorrow I wake with second wind
and strong because of pride
to know I fought with all my heart to keep my
dream alive

  8.     

Cold hearted

When your heart turns cold
it causes your soul to freeze
It spreads throughout your spirit
like a ruthless feeling disease
The walls that once were down
now stand firm and tall
Safe from hate/love, pain/joy
until your heart turns cold a baby's cry means nothing
A dead corpse is trivial
Mothers neglecting children is daily
Loneliness becomes your routine friend
Death seems like tranquility
Sleeping is never pleasant
if you even sleep at all
you forget ideas and turn off the reason
to make sure the product get sold
You don't understand how i behave
Just wait till your heart turns Cold!
