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

Perfection in my eyes

All I ever wanted was to be part of your heart,
And for us to be together, to never be apart.
No one else in the world can even compare,
You're perfect and so is this love that we share.
We have so much more than I ever thought we would,
I love you more than I ever thought I could.
I promise to give you all I have to give,
I'll do anything for you as long as I live.
In your eyes I see our present, our future and past,
By the way you look at me I know we'll last.
I hope that one day you'll come to realize,
How perfect you are when seen through my eyes.

secrets i should keep

All she wants is your kisses to be a daily present
a gift that shows you appreciate her very essence.
She wants you through the long days, short nights
forgiveness for her past ways, dont bring up old fights.
she wants your love in any and every situation, no doubts
be a man, keep ya cool even when all she do is shouts.
your hugs should make her feel dam near invincible
tears on your chest & your heartbeat will be all she listens to.
she wants u to let your love show while you're with your dawgs
make her feel perfect when shes with you like you fix her flaws
she wants her bed to feel empty without you & her sheets meaningless.
all because your gentle grabbing her hair while telling her to scream this
every man should know that faithfulness is a must
and real relationships last on each others amount of trust
joshua reid



Seeing death as freedom

It's a curse, and I sit here with complaints and cuts
Overdose my eyes with these tears 'cause they just won't shut
Self-Inflicted violence, my words advocate evasion
I scream out in silence as pain completes its invasion
Such sensation, self-expression limits my breath
Revealing myself to the world is pleading for death
when i die please remember me
Because soon all i'll be is a memory
dead in my room, after all the hate enter me
forget bein happy, thats what i pretend to be
nuthing but tragedy on this road ahead of me
thats why tears and blood flow heavily
Besides death theres no remedy
No way to end the dreams
I wouldnt wish my nightmares on my enemies
Its all too much, not enough strength nor energy
Grant me the serenity to accept the things ahead of me
and the courage to not be nervous and fufill my destiny
God coudnt react fast enough, so i lay dead in my sheets
Mother is destroyed, my suicide letter is read every week
goodbye everybody, wipe the tears from your cheek
and for all eternity remember me
joshua reid
