    Cloudy Mind: Overcast Thoughts

    My mind eyes’ perception is very precise
    it’s peripheral vision enables me to think
    better than I see: I perceive the world is changing
    Corruption of character/ Moral deterioration
    Environmental issues ignored/ Personalities merge
    It’s like the world is the Titanic
    and these things are tips of the iceberg
    Standards are being mocked/ Sincerity scorned
    A lot of morning I wish, I had never been born

    Why must I see things from such a different point of view?
    Am I a certified Lunatic, or is it all of you.......
    Why do I raise the curtain to my soul
    and expose my nucleus to unknown souls?
    I think it’s because I need someone to understand me
    and love me back

    Controversy lights the fuse of my curiosity
    Love is the axis that my world turns on. The
    Only thing I cannot do, is not be myself. My life’s goal is
    Understanding my position on this beautiful creation, meanwhile
    Demons chase me, trying to keep me chained. People don’t understand me because I’m
    Young in age: Old fashioned in mind

    I’m learning to find joy in the simplest things in life
    like long bike rides, late at night
    fixing my problems, not running from them
    feeling the night breeze blowing over my skin

    As I sit on my porch some days and listen to the rain
    I contemplate and meditate on this world’s many pains
    Things weren’t always like this, they recently started to change
    I have to keep my eyes skyward, else I may go insane
    My heart feels heavy and I’m crying silent tears
    My soul is screaming, but it falls on deaf ears

    World hunger is a real problem, so are the holes in the atmosphere
    when you see rain it’s not condensation, it’s an angels tears
    Terrorist attacks ending lives, many much before their time
    I feel the families anguish like it was mine
    I’m more in tune with nature than I ever realized
    When clouds fill the sky, tears fill my eyes

    The hell with being a rapper on a big record label
    **** trying to be player and have more than one horse in my stable
    I have to stay true to myself and all the evil resist
    I’m so un-materialistic, I wonder how I even exist
    I exist on a mental plane far beyond reality
    where people use words that they understand and mean
    because in real life, being awake is a nightmare
    and at night I’m living my dream

    A cloudy mind and rainy thoughts: How can I not have a stormy soul?

    Man that was a very deep and introspective piece and I can relate times over, but life should have seasons and in the season to cry you should cry but in the season to laugh and praise the Lord then laugh shout for joy and praise the Lord. I guess the secrete is in knowing when and how long each season should last in order for each person to individually maintain a healthy mental balance.
