    Forever used to truly mean forever
    And never really meant never ever
    But time and change waits for noone
    Working their dual magic on everyone

    I use to look in your eyes and see zion
    And now I am looking toward the horizon
    Focused on what the daybreak will bring
    Watching the slow demise of a mighty king

    The shell of the man can still be seen there
    But his royal spirit has escaped to somewhere
    What use to stand so regal, strong and bold
    Has begun to totally lose his true reality hold

    The king who anticipated any sign of need
    Now has me wondering how to feed his seed
    Walking away like its no longer his responsibility
    Like he can no longer bear the weight of ingerity

    Can't believe we seeking judgement from a court
    Cause you refuse to give your seed your support
    Never could imagine we'd be in this present disgrace
    Who would believe a king would flee from his place

    Heaven knows I miss the king you used to be
    Praying for an epiphany so that you can again see
    See your seed needs more than the money you pay
    Your seed needs your presence to guide their way

    When the weight gets too heavy, some dads decide not even to attempt to bear the weight any more, making the weight unbearable for the sons and daughters. Money is needed to raise children, certainly, but it can't replace a parent's presence. Truly feeling this piece.

    Very powerful piece! Such a shame to witness so many of our people fallen from the throne. We can only continue to lift up ourselves and each other.

    Thank you for sharing :luvv:

    Peace, Love, Light

    It sad me when so many men fall by the waste side due to these
    tales and reality truth .......the sad days continue to fall against
    brothers , one day we all will reclaim our kingdom from deadbeats
