Flatline

I hear the doctor standing over me
screaming I can make it
Got a body full of bullet holes laying here naked
Still I, can't breathe, somethings evil in my IV
Cause every time I breathe, I think they killing me
I'm having nightmares, homicidal fantasies
I wake up strangling, dangling my bed sheets
I call the nurse cause it hurts, to reminisce
How did it come to this? mom is the only
person in my life I'll miss
Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here
Cause even thugs cry, but does God care?
Try to remember, but it hurts
I'm walking through the cemetary talking to the, dirt
I'd rather die like a man, than live like a coward
There's peace in Heaven and it's ours, Black Power
is what we scream as we dream in a paranoid state
And our fate, is a lifetime of hate

My destiny is you

You know it was your destiny,
For you to find me.
And yes its true,
Mine was to find you.
Now we're together we'll never be split,
What ever troubles us we'll get through it.
Now that I'm here I'll always be around,
Your one true love has finally been found.
Everyone could see from the moment you was born
That i was the one meant to fix your heat when its torn
You're the thought on my mind every single night,
And the one when I see morning light.
I'll never be without the one I call my girl,
If I ever am my life will die at that fatal twirl.
You're the one who keeps me breathing each and every day,
For as long as I live I'll be here to stay.
The amount I love you it don't seem real,
Our relationship is strong; it's my life and God's deal.
You're the one I live for every single day
We'll be together, forever, what do you say?
That' a simple answer it's an all around yes,
I can't wait for the day you put on that wedding dress.
I'm here to love you always, every single moment,
We're so perfect together, we don't miss one component.
I picture you lying here right next to me,
What would we do? What would it be?
Well things have changed cause back then I just wanted fun,
But now I love you, I want one daughter and son.
The boy can be called Josh as you would like,
Just remember, I'll teach him to ride a bike.
That's the future lets focus on now,
Will we continue to be one? If so how?
Remember it was destiny for me to find you,
Every word of that is oh' so true.
And for you to find me,
yes it is destiny

  11.     

Trapped in my own mind

A place to spend my quiet nights, time to unwind
So much pressure in this life of mine, I cry at times
I once contemplated suicide, and would've tried
But when I held that 9, all I could see was my momma's eyes
No one knows my struggle, they only see the trouble
Not knowing it's hard to carry on when no one loves you
Picture me inside the misery of poverty
No man alive has ever witnessed struggles I survived
Praying hard for better days, promise to hold on
waiting to hear from God but it seems like he's gone
Will I survive all the fights and the darkness?
Trouble sparks, they tell me home is where the heart is, dear departed
I shed tattooed tears and couldn't sleep good
for multiple years, witness peers catch gunshots
Nobody cares, seen the politicians ban us
They'd rather see us locked in chains, please explain
why they can't stand us, is there a way for me to change?
Or am I just a victim of things I did to maintain?
I need a place to rest my head
with the little bit of me that remains, cause all the rest dead
How can I be peaceful? I'm coming from the bottom
Watch my daddy scream peace while the other man shot him
I need a house that's full of love when I need to escape
the deadly places slinging drugs

  12.     

A note to a distant lover

If we were in each others arms
In a never-ending loving embrace
If we were locked at the lips
In a never-ending kiss
We'd be in heaven
Though there's so much space between us
I'm still right by your side
Even if I can't head there right now
Darling I'll be with you tonight
In your dreams
In your heart
I'm always by your side
In your mind I'm your pride
Even death won't keep us apart
Love is always there in you heart
In heaven or in hell
You're my saving grace
I'm the free key to your cell
In you I find my peace
In you find a helping hand
To save us from the things we've lost
So that we can learn to live again
Heaven is here for us to find
In our hearts
Without love we'd be blind
But then again love is the sight that we seek
And the heaven that we'd find
