    I've learned you can't catch
    dreams you can't finish...
    so when reality strikes
    I lay numb, my existence stricken...
    my soul still dangling on the
    edges of hell's pit...

    I hold my heart in the
    palm of my hands...
    questioning the psalms
    so much beauty couldn't
    have emerged from man...
    in search for an identity we'll
    leave the next ***** for dead...
    my world doesn't know of
    a helping hand...
    we're merely repressed poets
    among a repressed land...
    with pent up hopes and
    dreams we once had...
    I lost mine with one simple
    sip of sin...
    and the women I
    indulge in...
    my insecurities embedded
    in another abortion...
    another black girl lost on the
    account of me being
    selfishly heartless...
    another life for $300...
    naively, this world will
    continue to spin...
    And I can't get caught
    up in the past...
    but it's hard to reflect on
    the present...
    liquor-stained-tongue
    drunken breathless...
    I know death is certain
    and i'll continue to live reckless...
    until i'm for certain
    what faith is...

    Will god strike me if I refuse to
    add to the plate collection...
    to an already stomach
    filled man...
    advertising a falsified message...

    I want to testify!

    Continued...
