    Im not re-luck-tant 2 dwell with the miss-educated
    That cant read between the lines-stuck eyes die-a-lay-ted (dialated)/
    Not from drugs but from lifes optical-ill-you-son (illusion)/
    No prescription needed to see past the amusement/
    See most people scared to speak there mind
    I give them a walking stick and they still cant lead the blind/
    Destressed living in a land with no remourse
    Cant feed your kids but all you think about government support/
    Instead of getting a job weather/whether its nine to five
    Go get some pedia-life so the young one survives/
    You so weak cant wait for outcome to materialize
    Hampered by your pre-con-cept-sions you will get victamized/
    I live life one day after the other-listen to me
    We all been down a path were we lived and we struggled/
    Sweet heart you listening to outside enter-fear-hinse (interfirance)
    The words that I speak like a preacher preach/
    No one can judge you when they scared of themselves
    This goes to all my people struggling to look at themselves/
    To get out the house and what they think is right
    Cause others self-hatred leaves there mind in strife/
    You are not a victim your an intelligent being of sight
    Enemies are closer than you think-just let God be yoour guiding light/

    um poet

    i think this is one of your best EVER

    we can compromise
    because someone has a small mind and can't expand past what they see

    i especially loved how you started this off

    Im not re-luck-tant 2 dwell with the miss-educated
    That cant read between the lines-stuck eyes die-a-lay-ted (dialated)/
    Not from drugs but from lifes optical-ill-you-son (illusion)/
    No prescription needed to see past the amusement/

    this was fire
    this is one of Destee finest pieces
    you as you know i don't just throw words around just to make people happy.
    so when i say this is one of the finest i mean it

    hey when can't slow down for the feeble minded

    man Tantrum

    this piece is very very hot
