    *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.
