    my gaze is distant
    i push through the days
    i know many deal with more hardships
    here and in other countries
    still i don't see how i can be living like this

    without faith
    i'd be hopeless
    dysfunctional family
    and black to be exact
    i pushed past my path to college
    to help bring my family closer
    to connect wit da dude i use to call
    "Dad"-dy
    my dreams seem laughable
    i struggle to keep it together
    my goals posted in the clouds
    hodge-podge
    distress strangles me
    like a chicken wang in
    cellaphane
    i meditate all day
    stress is stupid
    stupidly i stress
    about things that seem to be out of my reach
    like a job
    one dat would mean something to me
    or at least take care of my financial
    responsiblities
    i dug myself into a hole
    climbed out
    saw the world again
    and did a back flip with a twist
    into the darkest (pure-whyte) abyss
    i dug deeper and found labryniths of madness
    adds on to my normal life of sadness
    frustrating
    dealing with furious thinking
    fill my bloodstream with
    tetra hedral chemicals
    the fourth dimension
    makes me look at reality
    so obscene
    inside i scream(d)
    senseless to witness
    the true illusions that i've seen
    so i fiend
    to reconnect myself to you
    the community, forever,
    and the future
    man, it's such a joke
    everything that i do
    may not inspire me
    but it's true congruent
    to the road
    which the offspring
    of enslaved Kings(Queens)
    must go

    Sometimes we don't get better or worse, sometimes we just continue on in a spiral. Makes ya crazy if you're not where you want to be. Feelin this, flow on.

    Angelicsage,
    yeah it's about that. the truth of yesterday is true today. truth produces light, light-energy, we can use this energy to reach so many heights.

    One-love,
