*Dedicated to my young brother Dae-dae who caught a case he cant win bc he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Not everyone has given up on you, we love you & are trying our best to get you home*

I wish you “breath”- of life
I wish to you “breath”- of life
I wish
for you
my young brotha
the “breath”- of life
I close my eyes, and my spirit tries-
to form the closest bonds to eternity
cling to the Father’s throne on bended knee
and pray for peace…
of mind…
that you would find…
breath of life
to exhale you through the strife
of this
everyday-up-and-down
beat-you-to-the-ground
no-hope-to-be-found
energy-stripping
heart-ripping
reality
I pray up because I can’t get no further down-
than the devil has already pushed me
Looking up to Heavenly skies
Knowing these unholy lips have once told lies-
before,
but with tears I ignore
And
Still I try
to wish you
The “breath” of Life
through the Creator
for greater days to come
in spite of current sins done
because the truth is this life is deceiving & reality is suffocation
you reach for happiness & instead find devastation
we run a race that seems can never be won
we start a battle that was already done
our exhale is spoken for
eviction notice on the door
bc time is always up
and peace seems so unreal
and the longer we live the harder to feel-
…anything…
…everything…

so with closed eyes
I still try
to wish you
the “breath” of life
to exhale you through the strife
I’ve tried the rest and the fact of the matter remains-
Things aren’t always what they seem
This life is but a passing dream-
Time seems everlasting until the time is up
Climbing for something and nothing did erupt
Who needs the battle when we’ve won the war
And if you stop and listen… at the door
stands the key-
to dissipating the darkest despairs
of your deepest cares
and sharpest pains
HE is the breath of life & HIS power reigns
So while riches I have none to sustain
This much I can say
When I have been at my lowest depravity
HE… did step in to rescue me
When I have been gasping from running a life with no air…
I looked up…
And true enough
THE BREATH OF LIFE was there.

wow nice verse i relly liked this part right here very honest and sincere for real

exhale you through the strife
of this
everyday-up-and-down
beat-you-to-the-ground
no-hope-to-be-found
energy-stripping
heart-ripping
reality
I pray up because I can’t get no further down-
than the devil has already pushed me
Looking up to Heavenly skies
Knowing these unholy lips have once told lies-
before,
