    i gotta let go of something,
    to get something.
    but i get nothing,
    from nothing.
    when i try to give up literally,
    i let go spiritually.
    and end up bruised battered and scorned,
    like the swift winds from a terrible storm.
    but i let it go anyways,
    cuz i know it can't stay.
    only but a little while,
    and so i smile.
    and drop it to the floor,
    under my feet--to be seen no more.
    and i turn around,
    only to view an unknown sound.
    of the lost ppl of old,
    grasping to smother my soul.
    with their hatred of me,
    let me use a bigger word--their animosity.
    lowering me further into a deep dark pit,
    smelling like--well u already know it.
    but still i let it go,
    cuz i don't know.
    what's making me hold on to nothing,
    to get something.
    that i've always had,
    i guess to make ppl glad.
    but that can't be right,
    cuz my life is darkness--and something is the light.
    but i haven't figured out what it is,
    maybe it's none of my biz.
    but time will only tell,
    if from this disease i have--i'll be well.
    but who understands what i'm saying,
    do you think i'm playing?
    cuz if u think that's what i'm doin',
    then why do i have the thoughts in your head movin'?????? :confused:

    this was cool flow...
    that thing that keeps us
    hanging on to something
    that seems like nothing...
    is what I call "perseverance"

    love the energy in your flow! :spinstar:
