    fo sho' I
    know I
    press on like Lee
    quests unlikley
    to strike me
    as what might be
    fair forms of raw competition
    or missions of rightness
    butImight just listen
    wit' yo' permission
    I'ma
    up the
    condition
    baby
    love me
    or hate me
    lately haters be wishin'
    to rise to the guise of
    the downpressor
    yet still they be
    the lesser of the stressors
    thatIdealwit'
    onthedaily
    Imean Imean
    givemethereasons
    precisely the right to what you feel
    I'm wonderin' still
    Is a nyah in the right place
    is this the right case to be real
    isitme baby
    or just the world gone crazy
    or maybe
    more personal political disasters
    callin'thisheat
    when I ain't even close to
    approachin' critical mass
    pushin' particles of sound
    down in your ear
    abstract thoughts
    on levels little less than clear
    rhymescapes
    wherethemind drapes
    climes laced in fear
    or systems more sinister
    while I'm cravin' places
    where truth is administered
    in non-lethal dosages
    I'm immune to most of the
    verbal toxins they droppin'
    spittin' this anti-venom
    in raw form
    and on the norm
    real is what I'm given
