    Changing Faces

    Different color races
    In all different shades
    And bases

    Attitude still the same
    Now I know that
    I can't give up the race

    Because I know
    That now
    I must pursue it

    Finish it
    And get through it

    I'm reminded of the spirit
    Of one in the Olympics

    Who fell
    And was trampled on
    Till his leg was broken

    Still he journeyed on
    Till he reached the finish line

    And told the reporter
    His country didn't send him
    That far

    To run a race
    For their country
    To finish
    And in life that's how you have to keep

    Keeping on

    I believe
    That this act
    By a human vessel

    Is what
    Should really be looked upon

    In our generation and time

    Because
    So many trials
    We must face
    And deal with
    From day to day

    It's true
    And we're careful
    Not to repeat
    The same mistakes

    As our forefathers
    And their forefathers did

    But just listen to this
    You much finsih the race

    I called attention
    To this subject yesterday

    Made me wonder
    And and think

    I titled this poem
    Changing faces

    Just because
    I've had a change of heart

    And know
    That I can't continue
    To be decieved
    In myself anymore

    Or deny
    Because I'm just fooling myself

    And it's hard
    To have to face the truth

    Especially when you don't know what to do
    Especially when you have to let him know
    That you can't continue to stay any longer
    And he's having a hard time understanding the reason why
    Right now

    But everything
    Has it's own time table
    And I was told not to awaken love before it's time

    So with my will
    I'm struggling
    And having to fight

    A tug of war
    ANd surrendering and yielding
    Is not what I intended on
    But I know that I can't cave in
    Through these times

    Changing faces
    And staying in the race
    Not to delay
    But to hit my mark
    And reach my goal

    Not getting distracted along
    The way

    Changing faces
    Today

    Storm

    you stronger than ever
    couldn't be better
    lyrical vendetta
    verbal cheddar
    like a double header

    with a double whammy
    you up the ante
    fan that fanny
    but you still sweet like candy

    Tastin your flavor
    You know I can savor
    Like sweet honey molases

    Slowly precipitating
    Onto my tongue
    And in my mouth

    You know da street game
    Age to age it's still the same

    Nothings change
    Just the date and age

    Generations keep on flakin
    Makin same mistake

    Nothing new under the sun
    It's all been said and done

    Know you can feel my poetry beats
    Still I got to keep going

    Moving on
    Not let anyone tag along

    This one soldiette
    Has to journey on

    Not distracted
    Concentrated and focused

    And you'll see me again
    And I assure I will win.

    My first stop is Brooklyn
    Then the Bronx
    Next there's Harlem

    Mooving
    From da West
    To da best
    Of the East

    Pursuing
    And conquering every
    Battle that I should

    Doing more harm
    Than good

    And like I know I should
    One day New York
    Will sing my name

    Because I had a vision of love
    Ringing into the inner city
    To townsquare

    The parties of Puffy Combs
    Will be bumpin
    The music that flow

    And know no more
    To say than
    Hip Hip Horray

    By the way
    I love to say
    I'm feeling like I'm
    S'posed to be

    Intermission
    Gladly....
