    Laboring such
    It occurs to me
    That life,
    Isn't all it's
    Supposed to be

    For sure I'll die
    Before I wake
    To demonstrate,
    Let's draw the gate

    Come on... :bus:
    See all,
    It's man alive ~
    Strive to pry
    Your opened eyes

    To see the life
    That you create
    Evaluate your nakedness

    Whose mirror image
    Yours alone,
    A snapshot of you
    God wil love

    Believe me you
    Before I wake
    For sure I'll die
    Can you relate?

    What I got from this, is a reminder of that feeling one gets, when we have this inkling that we are somehow missing the whole point of our existance. Keep flowin brotha, keep flowin.

    thats real i am sure we could gain alot by stripping ourselves of the clothes and other things that society labels us by. no matter what we are still going to die, and it is the real person that we are. that we will be judged by
