    When you see my struggle,
    do you realize that it is not my story?
    When you hear my story,
    do you understand that those are just memories?
    And, if you happen to cross paths with those who have betrayed me
    can you fathom that they are not my enemies?
    You make note of the way i walk
    but do you notice
    that is just what time has did to me
    and not how i was born?
    See, me is dying but I refuse to mourn
    Because today is not over
    And I've been favored since way before my mother ever went into labor
    Later I grew
    then I thought I knew the difference between facts and truth
    But, seeing aint believing
    and believing dont need proof
    So, prove to me that I am unworthy
    Give me one reason to doubt my father
    Dont bother
    Because my truth lies in scribes written way before your time
    There is where I am defined by ancient lines
    written by spiritual minds
    as a spirit that defies even the barriers of time lines
    I am the path made to brush against the tide
    In time you will see
    That I am not my destiny
    But there is destiny in me
    Restlessly as it refuses to sleep
    I creep between the pages
    rewording the words
    and giving face to the faceless
    Trying to find meaning in me, so I seek patience
    Once i thought my soul was vacant
    It felt like I was hollow
    And then came tomorrow
    Proof of all the time I'd borrowed
    News of all that followed

    Awesome Flow Sister

    Sister karma55
    I am not sure.
    This may be my first read of your flows.
    I am loving the talent. Poetess


    The outer should not be mistaken for whats within
    The character presented is not what is contained.
    So take nothing for face value.
    Check deep and check again.

    Hello Karma...

    "And then came tomorrow." Those words brought thoughts of an ‘exhale’ and gained wisdom to put past experiences to good use and become the best you. I really enjoyed this write! Thank you.

    How yesterdays join hands with tomorrow, and what we sometimes can't see clear today, are so vivid the next. Beautiful write poetess.
