My grampa always tryna compare living in the south and not having socks
To living in the city grown without stocks
So we never relate
So while he going to sleep early
I be waking up late
Because I ain’t sleep in days , no sleep buts that’s alright
I know my mind is a maze but dreams are dynamite
I know that all things lost can be once again acquired
And once you get them back they’re no longer desire.
Maybe the future is reflection of the past
because what used to make me cry now makes me laugh
I want more
I won’t justify less
Trauma has held me back
Doubt has caused me stressed
No more running away
I know I won’t change in a day
when dark thoughts deceive me
I’ll drop to my knees and pray
Here’s what I’ve learned since you’ve been gone,
It’s takes a special type of person to love people like us.
We’re not anything anyone has ever experienced.
& at are best we these special people with ability love people like you and I.
But are worst we aren’t the best people.
… but even then we’re still more fit together than we’ll ever be with anyone else.
And because of this I can only be at my best when I’m with you.
Life works in cycles
360 degrees of eternity
From birth to expiration
Joy to sorrow
Nothing makes sense
and then everything does
It’s a game with no rules
and a path with no destination
Trivial yet simple
Hideous and beautiful at the same time
and the world keeps spinning
and the world keeps spinning
Buckle up and enjoy the ride
There’s a world outside of Philly I know nothing about
I’ll get there one day, I haven’t a doubt
The sun shines brighter
The loads a little lighter
The smiles are welcoming
and there aren’t any selfish schemes
Time doesn’t exist
Neither does fear
Life in full bliss
I’ll find it somewhere
I don’t want to be the reason another black boy cries
Cause every other season another black boy dies
If not by death by broken promises
With no hope that the sun will ever shine again
So I’m gonna help you see it through
Cause it’s hard enough being me and you
The hardest thing I’ve had to do in my adult life is have a conversation with the transgender cashier at Buffalo exchange while trying to pretend I didn’t notice his cropped shirt and pierced – very hairy- belly button.
One time I farted shorty after hearing another person fart loudly. But no one knew I had farted. They only knew about the person who’s fart sounded like a garbage disposal.
Somehow the two farts merged together and became a lethal toxin causing people to vacate the area in mass hysteria.
As this person swore up and down that a smell like that could’ve have come from their body, I watched from the other side of the room feeling both liberated —because no one knew I had contributed-and guilty -because everyone thought it came from her-.
She’s a manager at Walmart now and sometimes when I’m up late at night I think to myself “How might her life been different if our farts hadn’t mutated into a nuclear gas?”.
Always in a rush but I stopped for you
Living in a rut cuz my mind confused
Stuck in my emotions ain’t got time to be
all the signs say you were designed for me
Will I get you back only time will tell
Before I find love I gotta find myself
