    I fight alone against my thoughts
    I’m wrestling nightmares & dreams
    I sift through shattered emotions for some room at God’s feet

    I stare at 4 lonely walls
    That haunt me with the empty feeling
    That God don’t answer my prayers. Why don’t the get past the ceiling?

    If they make it to heaven
    Why won’t He send me a blessing?
    Instead he punishes me abundantly for not learning lessons

    That He Tried to teach
    My Grandma cried & preached
    But I’m hard headed & embedded in my love for these streets

    I feed off the concrete
    My appetite is destruction
    Call me a stone cold sinner ‘cause Mama I’m out here hustlin’

    I came from nothing So I’m humble
    I’ve been Humiliated for years
    I was Baptized in the fire & christened by my mama’s tears

    So aint nothing you can tell me
    The story has been told
    & I don’t need advice or sympathy just pray for my soul

    You never know who else has a similar story to tell, but just can't word it nearly as well. May the soul have some ease.
